I wonder if this isn't mite bites? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Dermatology/Extremely-Itchy-Skin-on-Neck-and-Upper-Back/show/244296">Extremely Itchy Skin on Neck and Upper Back</a>.
soon i noticed that my ear on the same side contained the same type of rash. my ear and neck are now very painful and it is rare that i dont awake to a bloody pillow in the morning. The rash has now escalated to open wounds for the most part and sometimes drip a clear odorless liquid. I am treating this several times a day first with peroxide and then aintibiotic and benedryl ointments; none seem to help. I feel as if my left side (ear and neck ) are decaying.
When I get out of the shower after taking a long hot shower, I have noticed that sometimes I have a red rash around my shoulders and chest, and up on to my neck. Sometimes noticable on my face as well. I've had this for a few years now, but never really thought anything of it, since it goes away after a few minutes. It happens after sweating too, and sometimes just when I undergo drastic temperature changes I feel.
It seems as i have the same thing on the back of my neck on my traps. What I noticed is after I constantly use head and shoulders shampoo for a few times it goes away; when I stop using it, it comes back. Any idea what this is?
I have the exact same problem. My rash started on the back of my neck and shoulders. It started to spread onto my collar bone, so now it's only at the collar bone and the left side of my neck below my ear. Hot water irritates me and turns my skin dry and rough. It itches insanely and has been off and off for a few months now! I have no idea what caused it. I have done nothing to my lifestyle that would affect me.
Hey, around a month and a half ago I just out of no where got these little red dots on the upper part of my shoulders, lower neck at sides, and a few on upper chest. I've never had anything like this happen before, that I can remember. If you look at them close enough, they sort of look like dried out skin, but red. Each one is about 0.2 of a cm in diameter (estimate), and sometimes I will feel a slight tingling, almost like tiny little bugs crawling on my skin, and they'll be slightly itchy.
The pains all go away when resting except for the neck and back pain, however strangely the neck pain can entirely subside for a week or so at a time. It should be noted that these issues arose during a brief period when I was not exercising frequently. I am now back exercising regularly, and it is difficult at first, but after a few minutes the muscles warm up and are okay.
Now a few more raised bumps have been developing near that area on my upper back and shoulders, I even found one on the side of my neck. When I pick at them they sometimes flake in the center and are surrounded by a darker section. Any idea what this is? Should get it checked out before it worsens or will it go away on its own?
), no shortness of breath, no fatigue. Nothing. Just the cough and the rash and the swollen gland on the right of my throat. Questions: 1) Does anyone know if one day after taking medicine is too soon for Drug Allergy symptoms to show? (I have never been allergic to anything before, I dont think.) 2) What does an HIV rash look like and does mine sound like one? Well, thats about it really. I am going to the local Action for Aids clinic tonight for a 6 week rapid-test...

A few days later I noticed a red rash looking thing across my chest wasn't sure if it was a rash or not because I get red in face and neck area easily when upset and I was upset at the time. Then it appeared again the next day after a hot shower. I went to the dr and he said it was allergies even gave me a white blood cell count test to calm my nerves it came back normal he gave me some allergy meds. I came home the cold symptoms went away.
Shortly afterwards I started itching on my scalp and hands. The rash and itching has not appeared on my neck and shoulders and where my bra line is. When I vomited I noticed several remnants of pills that appear to be the Klor Chon that I have been taking - there have been several and I only take one each day???
a fine rash - looks more like blushing -seems to be triggered by adrenaline. (stress, even small stress). Pink on sides of neck (mostly on left) just about all the time and itchy shoulder and back. I don't smoke and I was tested negative for chemicals. I do not have extra exposure to sun or heat.
I have had a flat rash/skin discoloration appear in large parts of my upper body only -- it appeared and spreaded pretty quickly. It is on my back (upper and lower), trunk, stomach, sides, shoulders, chest and the back of my neck. It appears in dark blotches that resembles stretch marks, some white blotches, and sometimes if I don't moisturize, it becomes scaly. I just went to the dermatologist today and the doctor told me I have eczema and prescribed two topical creams.
My husband gets this rash on his chest and back and sometimes on his upper legs, it is really dry and itchy. He says it feels better after I amply lotion to it. Could this be the rash they say you get when you show symptoms of hiv or is it just egzema? We have only been together for two years so it worries me.
I just saw on TV the reports of Victoria Secret bras.... I was shocked.... I don't wear that brand but I have the same symptoms going on.... anyone else out there?
I have been having incidents of pain in my neck, shoulders, back and eventually spreads to arms and legs and is followed by severe stiffness of muscles that have sometimes left me bedbound for days. My neurologist is treating me with Mirapex ( I am currently up to 1 mg three times daily and the effects are again wearing off and will need to be increased again. All my neurologist has diagnosed me with is Neuropathy and she says the Mirapex is for my restless legs....??
it started on the sides of my face and has now spread down my neck to my chest and theres even a few bumps on my shoulders and on my stomach. its not painful or itchy and i mistook it for a break out until i saw it spreading. i just had my blood drawn and my endo told me to stop taking my methimazole because the dosage is too high, i didnt get my levels but im assuming that instead of being hyper that i am hypo right now cause she asked me to stop taking the methimazole immidiately.
INSTEAD OF MUSCLE PAIN I SEEM TO HAVE PAIN SPOTS IN THE CENTER OF MY CHEST ONE ON EACH SIDE CLOSE TO THE CENTER, I HAVE TENDER SORE SPOTS UNDER AND ON THE SIDES OF MY UPPER ARMS, ALSO IN MY SHOULDERS AND LOWER BACK. NOT A WHOLE LOT OF THIS TYPE OF PAIN IN MY LEGS. I DO HAVE SOME ARTHRITIS PAIN IN MY KNEES. MY PAIN IS WORSE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING AND AT NIGHT. I START MY DAY STRETCHING MY LEGS AND FEET AND ANKLES BEFORE I GET OUT OF BED I ALSO DO SOME MILD MOVEMENT WITH THE ARMS.
It started with a single red circlular rash which a couple of weeks later developed into sores on my back, around my neck and shoulders and on my abdomon. Some of the rashes are circular, the other spots are just sores about 1cm in diameter, the largest is about an inch and the smallest about half a cm. they are slightly risen and i have had the rash in total for about a month now.
now ive lost my job and insurance and cant afford to go back and problem still their itchy neck and ears and sometimes rash on cheeks tried to get them to do a bi-op but they said you dont want that yet it would involve a 1/4 inch cut in my face what I didnt know at the time is they dont care about treating me but setting up a new appointment was #1 to those Dicks....try this and come back....try this and come back im late for my tee time...
It seems that doing so causes severe neck, shoulder and arm pain, and nerve dysfunction. I hate sleeping on my back, but it is the only way that works anymore. My stiff neck attacks now seem to come 'out of the blue' without correlation to physical exertion, or strain. I still believe that all or at least a great majority of my decades of neck, mid-back, rib, and lower back pains have been due to the original HCV infection.
I have had this problem for atleast 10 years, and i feel like it runs my life. This stupid rash occurs at anytime, and always starts on my chest and works it way up to my neck and face, it makes me extremley hot. i will also get it if i drink, work out, or in hot weather. I have very very VERY fair skin, so when i get even slightly red...its RED. I have notcied that it will occur when im more nervous, but it has also occured in happy, sad, exciting situations.
