Common Questions and Answers about Itchy scalp rash on neck

itchy

my 7yro daughter started having an itchy scalp w/ a rash behind her ears & on the back of her neck. This has been going on for 3 days; we recently changed shampoos and we believe that this may be the problem. I have been bathing her in baking soda baths & baby shampoo w/ multiple rinsing, 12.5mg of Benadryl PRN and Hydrocortizone Creme @ hs & in the a.m. The rash has lessened, but, still itching & the rash is milder, but, still there.
My daughter (13) has an itchy neck and scalp. On the back of her neck, under her long hair, is an area with small red bumps. These bumps have persisted for several months, without change. Changing shampoos has not seemed to help. There are no signs of flakiness or redness on he scalp. The itchiness is intermittent, but moderate in severity. We are currently trying a cortisone cream on the back of the neck. Any ideas on how to treat this?

I have developed a rash on the back of my neck and lower part of the scalp there. The rash is painful to the touch, like a burning feeling if i touch it. It is raw and i cant find no reason for it. I have changed my beddings and washed my hair which seems to relieve the pain but only temporarily. Any suggestions.
Not sure why your neck would be itchy unless it's near your scalp/hairline? If so, I started getting this all of a sudden about 3 years ago. I think the doctor called it Seborrheic Dermatitis (a severe type of dandruff). I tried everything (before going to the dermatologist) to get rid of it but I had bad itching, flaking, peeling, and even a little bleeding on my scalp.
I have been having a kind of non itchy rash/pimple on the back of my scalp just little above the neck for the last 2.5 months. The rash/pimple keep coming when the current ones are dried up. Can this be related to HIV? Please advise.
The second worked, she has been feeling fine since other than her non stop itching. She itches on the face, scalp, neck, legs, and arms. She has tried benadryls, calming lotions, and herbal suppliments. Nothing has helped. Tonight i found about 5 unexplained cuts all over her scalp. Im not sure if she should be checked out or if i am over reacting. She is currently taking baclofen and diazopine. Please help me out. She would really appreciate it!
During that time, another patch started on my scalp just above my hairline(in my hair)on my dorsal neck. This patch is what is bothering me now. It is spreading, has been intensely itchy, it is wet sometimes, like it is weeping and there are large flakes of skin that slough off daily. Sometimes it bleeds a tiny bit. The area seems raised from the rest of scalp. I also think it is important to note, it has a foul odor. It is litterally driving me insane.
not that long. My eyes are also irritated and itchy which has happend since i got this rash and ive had neck ache..and back ache which ive had for a few years (doctor said that was because of posture) i just feel like my lifes over already if i have maggots inside me. i'm going doctors asap but im really scared and want to know what is going on.
I've tried using moisturizing treatments and sticking with one shampoo/conditioner. Nothing seems to help. Lately, I have noticed that the back of my neck is itchy, now my breasts, the center of my check and my stomach also itch. I don't have any apparent rash or hives. The only thing I have noticed are a few small red dots on my arm or chest that I scratch and pick off.
Over the past couple of days my scalp has been flaking more than usual. But over the past day or two, my scalp and the back of my neck and my tops of my shoulders feel like it's gotten a light sunburn, but I haven't been out in the sun. I also noticed that the back of my scalp is red in a very splotchy (medical term...I know) fashion. Could this just be stress? I've been under alot lately...or is this actually something?
For the past few weeks I have been having a very itchy scalp, and it tends to spread to the back of my ears, neck, arms, and hands. Becuase of my itiching, there is now red spots in those areas except my head and ears. They are beginging to fade but I was wondering is it a rash or allergic reaction? I dont have lice but once in a while I have dandriff problems. But if it is dandriff, wouldnt it just affect my head and shoulders?
I have been to the dermatologist, had skin tests done etc. The rash is tiny itchy red bumps, only on my face. They seem to have clear fluid inside, but are very tiny. They sort of rise to the surface a bit red, they itch, then when I scratch them, the fluid comes out and they sort of go away. THe doctor said they are not hives and that it is a contact dermatitis. I am only using products I know I am not sensitive to from the patch tests that were done.
at night time or when he is irratated/crying. It started on the neck and has spread to the side of the scalp and now is on his forehead. I also noticed that he has a small lump on the back of his ear and one on his head. I have taken him to his ped. but he told me that it's a rash, to apply cortozone and wash his head with Senson Blue. I have done both and neither one seems to help for an extensive amount of time. His itching is so intense that it's disturbing his sleep.
Looking at me, it doesn't look like anything is wrong, although the itching is unbearable and I'm constantly scratching. The itchy part is around my eyes, temple, forehead and small part of the scalp - all connected, on the left side of my face and hasn't spread to any other area or gotten bigger. Thanks again for taking the time to answer my question. I appreciate your help. Have a wonderful day!
A few days ago, my scalp, back of neck, and now my pubic area has become extremely itchy. Everyone in my family has checked my head, but they don't see any nits or lice. My neck has become red in spots I itched it. Cortaid doesn't work, neither does gold bond cream. I could have gotten something when I went to Panama two weeks ago and was in close contact with children there. I was wondering what this could be so I could treat it right away.
I discoverd a couple of days ago a red rash on my neck. It itches like crazy. The back of my neck, around my hair line, has been itching for months. I have always just assumed it was dry skin, or my scalp was dry. There are like 6 different spots on my neck. I am wondering if it is Psoriasis? If anyone has any information, its greatly appriciated.

My daughter had a baby this week and the day after baby's birth she developed an itchy rash of red bumps on the back of her upper thighs and buttocks, with one thigh having raised welts like hives. I gave her some Claritin which helped the raised welts go down, but the rash is still present. Switched her to Zyrtec after reading about it here, and will try some other remedies mentioned here too. She is soaking in an Epsom Salt bath now, and will try the sea salt bath too.
There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.
It is almost as if I’ve developed plaque psoriasis but it is not evident in my family, but I have been under a great deal of stress. To make matters worse I have now developed a bumpy rash on both sides of my neck, both armpits & small patches else where. I do suffer from eczema & hay fever so didn’t know if any of these are related. I would be grateful for your dermatologists opinion.
My face and scalp itch. What works for me is rubbing on a vitamine E oil, at least on my face. It knocks it dwon about 90% and lasts all day. I haven't seen a dematologist yet, but plan to in the near future..
I also have developed a slight red rash around my neck which isn't painful or itchy but has cropped up the same time as my headache. Are these effeccts of a cold?
