From this study (1 year ago):
started a year ago with small itchy bumps on back, then moved to blister, pestilules, all over bottom part of both legs, itching, burning for days and days, then turning in to scabs, then clearing, then just left over rashy spots, then a week later break out again. Now some around face, and all in back of neckline around hair, in hair, a itching sensation almost all over my body.
