 Hi, we have house abroad, last three times staying there myself and hubby have broken out in bites that then turn into red swollen rash blisters that bunch together. This appears from neck down. very uncomfortable and itchy. wondered if mattress or soap powder i washed sheets in? would be grateful if you have a suggestions on this matter. the rash mostly appears in a line. many thanks.

The rash you described definitely sounds like some form of contact dermatitis to me - dermatitis is usually very itchy rash, sometimes with blisters that crack and dry up and as you said yourself, contact dermatitis is caused by exposure to something that has caused your skin to react in this way. And usually, the recommendation is to re-trace what might be the cause - since both of you experienced the same, yes, detergent, soap, household cleaner, some lotion... whatever you both used, is the cause. Jewelry containing nickel can also cause this. Treatment for this type of rash is usually OTC anti-histamine topical cream.
