I'm going on my 3rd week. I've got it on my right ankle and halfway up my calf but I swear it's spreading up my leg. It's also on my left shin and looks to be spreading there too. It's an excruciating itch and I'm starting to have sleepless nights now. I've been using Caladryl lotion for a week now. I also put Desitin ointment on it to dry it out but that didn't help. I just cannot tell if this rash is getting better or worse. It's still extremely pink and blistery. Cold shower over my legs feels the best. Then air drying it out and covering it in Caladryl...that's about my only remedy at the moment. But I think I'm going to try the rubbing alcohol as someone else suggested. Thanks
