Common Questions and Answers about Rash on neck chest

rash

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.
I have a rash around my neck and on the front of my chest. It started out as little spots but they have grown bigger. The spots are a pinkish color and they have a different texture than my skin. They almost feel softer than my skin. They are not raised at all and they are slightly itchy but not all the time. I am baffled as to how to make them go away and they just slowly keep getting bigger. I don't know if they could be from wearing a sports bra every day or what???? Help!!!!!
It starts out as a tingling feeling that develops into a red rash on my forehead, cheeks. and neck (some areas on my face will have one or two small raised marks that appear to look like scratches). I will also have a red mark in the middle of my chest. This rash will last up to 20 to 30 minutes and then dissapear. It starts out as a tingling feeling that ends up itching and burning(like a sun burn). It is also not a uniform rash.
For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.
I have developed an itchy and burning rash on my chest and neck for the second time in a few weeks. The first time, I'd been working in the yard and thought it might be some sort of contact dermatitis and so I applied calamine lotion several times a day for about four days and it disappeared, leaving an area of my neck and chest peeling and then healed. It began again last night and I didn't work in the yard yesterday.
So, I have had this mysterious kinda blotchy rash on my upper chest and lower neck now for 3 days going on 4. It's very itchy and hot and uncomfortable. I think it may have started when I was at a softball game lying on my stomach on top of a blanket on the grass, but then again my sweatshirt and the blanket were between me and the grass and this has lasted several showers since then, so I'm beginning to doubt that theory a little.
right below my chin and on my neck are little bumps that feel like the goosbumps, those are on my neck and the back of my neck right below my hair line. on my back and are similar symptoms excecpt they are red dots and more spread out, in random and evenly not in cluttered heavy bunches. the effected areas are not swollen, do not have impalement of skin, and are not hot. i do not have a feaver.

I am waiting to see a dermatologist but in the mean time I have a photosensitive rash that fades and flares up but never goes away on my neck and upper chest. I do have mild rosacea but have had this rash for 3 months now and am really fed up. Thanks for any replys.
I have had a rash which started on the sides of my neck then moved to my forehead and sides of my face and now is also on my upper chest. It seems worst at the end of the day. I've been to the dermotologis, general pract. Dr's. The gave me creams and antibiotics and it isn't helping. They are small bumps, itchy and red, no fluid and are right next to each other (thick). Are worst when I sweat. I am 45 and haven't had a period since I was about 38, could this be part of menapause?
I'm 26 and female, and for the last 5-6 years, I sporadically get this rash on my neck (mostly) and a little on my chest, armpits and sometimes a couple of random bumps just under my eyes or on my lower face/cheeks. The rash does not itch and begins with a blotchy redness, and then about 4-12 hours later (sometimes it will "mature" overnight) a spray of white-headed bumps wll occur where the redness was.
however not sure what to do about my face....sigh. ive read on here most people get the neck/chest rash, does anyone get blotchiness on their face?? the rash comes on my chest when im nervous but if something is really embarassing like a school talk *shudder* or something like that my whole face gets really really red and blotchy and people always comment. so just wondering if anyone gets it on their face? anyway, would love to hear back from anyone!!
So Amiah has quite the rash on her neck. She's going to the DR. next week, but I'm wondering if other babies have this. It doesn't bother her, but it sure looks like an allergic reaction. We've been putting Aquaphor on it...Any suggestions? Thanks!
Here is a picture of a rash on my neck. I also have a rash on my left arm thats bigger. They have lasted a few weeks. I have had recurring rashes for the last few years that come and go on my arms, upper legs and inner thighs, my neck and upper chest. They don't appear directly on my genitals or my back, or at the bottom of my feet. They itch and have a slight discoloration of red. They are slightly raised non-blister bumps, and have been lasting longer the last few months.
Over a week ago I had a bad sinus infection I was given a Z Pak and Prednisone ( this might have nothing to do with this but i am wondering if I am having a reaction to either one) I have been off of both meds for about 3 days now after completing them and yesterday rash started on my neck and upper chest. What should I do?
Hello, For chest rash, you should get pityriasis rosea ruled out. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
I've had this rash on my neck and upper chest for 6 wks now. I've tried everything. Even an allergist, who put me on meds. Rash is back again...nothing is helping. The rash is getting raw and painful. Can't imagine where I could have gotten it. changed my laundry soap and fabric softener. still nothing's working . help!
I would wake up sometimes on my back with this burning heat up my spine back and stomach. Now have this rash on my chest that looks like and feels like a sunburn. Sometimes I feel it on my knees and at times my body itches in different places, head, neck, arms, legs, wrists, feet, hands, and ankles. However, the only areas that show the red sunburn appearance are the chest and knees at times. All other areas become red only when scratched. It often bothers me at night and I sweat.
I have had a rash like small hives around the neck and upper chest, very itchy I have gone to the doctor several times and have gotten steroid injections and have only helped for a week and then its back, currently he put me on Predisone 40 mg and have tappered to 5mg and now the rash is back. It seems to surface at night and I noticed that I am real sweaty at night not to mention very itchy. I do have Rheumtoid Arthritis. Could there be a connection?
