You can be allergic to anything.

Try taking a hayfever pill. :thumbsup:

the lumps look like bites, white lumps with like a pin head in them, i thought allergies where like a rash:?

Allergies can show themselves in all different ways

Antihistamines will help if it is an allergic reaction

I wouldn't worry about taking them all the time...................i'd say you've only got 4 days left max. ;-)

Now there is another problem all of it's own...............does the rash have a licence? :? :whistling:

In all seriousness though............try antihistamines and if it persists then the new suite will need to go. :-(

Before you do anything drastic though, have a think:

Have you used different washing powder, eaten something different, cleaned the sheets. (sorry :oops: ), worn something new etc.

It could be any number of things, you'll need to backtrack. :)

EDIT - It could be stress as well due to the Musthave probs...................so many things it can be.

Couldn't be animal fleas could it?

No, i havent changed anything, the only thing i know i come out in massive lumps like this is when i have been bitten, never had any allergies to anything other than mossies, gnats, cat fleas etc, The thing is i noticed yesterday as soon as i sit on suite i feel itchy if that makes sense

not unless animals got into furnitre village :w00t: But i must admit my first thought was this but we havent been anywhere that have cats

If it's brand new then it could even be the fact that it's recently been scotch guarded. If that's the case then it will become less of an irritant with time as it wears in and settles a bit.

Well someone once said a lot of animals work there:giggle:

suites are like new clothes. They're stiff, starchy and sprayed in ****. They've been from abroad to factory to shop and are covered in invisible dust. I know its a stupid thing to say, given its a new suite, but give it a light clean and a good vacuum.

Also this is the time of year for dust mites. They hide in furniture and beds and love heat. With it being so cold suddenly over the past week perhaps you need to turn over your mattress and leave the window open for a day?

Hope it clears soon hun!!

and before Syzable starts invisible dust is not some magic thing :D

how about mattress mites perhaps they are in the suite.this is possible on a new suite so i have been led too believe.must be something you can spray it with perhaps worth a try or even the fire retardent in the material

Hi Sassie

Id definatly take some antihystamines they will help with the itching.
Just double check if you take any other medication for conflicts on the packets info sheet. (I used to work in a pharmacy)

You may only need them for a few days as some allergic reations can calm down after prolonged exposure.

Just a couple of quick questions...

1) Are the places where the rash is bare when sitting on the sofa?...

As lots of new sofas etc are treated with a stain resistant spray and this can cause irritation if contact with skin.
or it could also be some of the fibres may be poking through the cover and scratching the skin...these fibres will wear away after a while...or maybe sit on a blanket for a few days.

2) do you have a cat/dog? or has the carpet likely had cats/dogs on it?

As fleas can stay unnoticed in carpets etc for months and just suddenly appear when heating is used etc...I had this in a flat I lived in once and we had no pets at all!

3) or is it likely that you have come into contact with anything else that could have caused a reaction?...new bath products etc?

Hope this helps,
I hate when my allergies flare up...drives me insane!!:x

(blimey I must be slow typing as theres lots of my suggestions have already appeared lol)

when i plonk my bum on it, even when clothed it feels *****ly, the suite is rather smooth so i can't understand where the *****ly feeling is coming from and i just know what i have said makes no sense whatsoever but it did to me:roll:
#26
Try going naked for a while as you may be allergic to your clothing fibres too and use a leather settee, if you havent got a leather sofa you can borrow mine.........................cancel that the OH may get a bit worried finding a naked blonde lying around the house, even I wouldnt be able to explain that one :giggle: Seriously though hope you get to the erm bottom of it you havent change wash powder or like toiletries lately have you?

As daft as it sounds it has been known for people to get fleas and bedbugs with new furniture as it is transported in the same lorries/vans as they take the old ones away in, scary thought or what?
#27
there's no need to use such foul language ha ha
#28
Perhaps the suite is allergic to you! :? :p Its payback time! ;-) (Well, how would you like it if someone sat on you!)[SIZE="1"](if Gemma Atkinson...drool!)[/SIZE]

well i am thinking on that as i really cant see it being just an allergy, as the lumps have a pin ***** hole in the middle, and although i know you can get allergie lumps i didnt think they had like a puncture hole, i have been googling all night but not getting very far:oops:
