What caused my rash?

I have developed a rash over my entire body except for my face. I first noticed it on my arms and over approximately 2 to 3 weeks it has become more prevalent with itching and now I feel a little swelling around my waist and top of my thighs. The only new medication I started within that time period was fluticasone nasal spray. What does this sound like to you?

Sounds like an allergic reaction. See what happens when you stop the spray for a few weeks.
You should see your doctor. There are some viral infections that cause rashes like this and are classic in some cases. Usually benign.
