Thank you for the update to this older post... it's very timely for me because I just broke out in a rash that is driving me nuts, and I can only link it to recently getting glutened at a restaurant (I know, I know..) Tasted some soup the waitress assured me was only thickened with corn starch and later found out it was wheat flour.
That's EXACTLY where the rash I just got is! I've been scratching like mad for a week and a half...
Ugh. Wear sleeves that let it breathe. Dove antiperspirant/deoderant was ok as was Tom's. don't use a salt deoderant-burns like a sob.
Ice packs every chance you get.
I'd slough off the scabs in the shower - just gently rub with your fingers.
Wear a bra that doesn't rub it. I bought cheap jms/playtex at Walmart because they'd get ruined.
