    I've got a rash that is nearly unbearable.  Not sure, but I applied a lot of 50 sunscreen on Thursday, and early Saturday morning i started to itch all over -arms, legs, back of neck, etc.   Initially it was only in sunscreen exposed areas, but now on Tuesday it spread to areas that didnt' get sunscreen..Could it be from teh sunscreen? I can't think of a single thing that could be causing it except the sun protection as there hasn't been anything different except that. 


    Also, if anyone has a better idea than Benedryl, I'd love to hear it!
