Our expert says:
Chomps, it might be that you’re allergic to the ink, but then one would expect the rash to be most prominent in the area of he tattoo. On the other hand, the fact that the antihistamines work seems to suggest there is an allergy of some sorts. The best would be to see your doctor and have him examine you properly. If it is an allergy, he can give you cortisone for 5-10 days. Good luck.
