Common Questions and Answers about Rash on neck itchy

rash

Since I've been home I have developed an itch on my neck that just won't stop. Its bumpy in the area but it's not red like a rash. It's kinda in the fold of my neck when i look down and on the sides, so i was wondering if it may have something to do with swear, however i havent been extremely warm (as it is the middle of a cold winter!). I havent changed my make up or lotions, so i was wondering if anyone knows whats going on with my itch!
For about 3-4 weeks I have had a burning and extremely itchy rash on the back of my neck, below my hairline, just above my collar. I have checked my soaps, detergents, shampoos, cosmetics, perfumes etc. and have not usd anything new or unusual. The only medication I take is Synthroid for Hypothyroidism. I can not see the back of my neck to examine it, yet my husband says that the rash looks mild and there are small red bumps visible.
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.
For the past few days I have developed a rash on my neck over my thyroid gland and now has spread up my neck and onto my face. It is very itchy and red. Could this be related to my Thyroid Disease?
Hives or urticaria causes red and sometimes itchy rash on the body such as face, neck, trunk, arms, and legs and perhaps anywhere on the body. They are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found. They usually go away on their own, but in sometimes oral antihistaminics (such as cetirizine, loratidine, benadryl available over the counter) may be needed.
But it has now spread to both of my shins, behind my neck near my ear, my stomach, wrist and a little on my back. it is redish and lumpy and so itchy i am going insane!!! i have been to 5 doctors and some are saying its dermatitis, others ezcema, and one saids scabies. so i have been given all these creams, anti histemenes all which have done nothing, but it did get a little better when i was taking pretnasoine.
A few days ago, I woke up with a very strange rash on my neck. There were two circles that were red, slightly raised, and very itchy. My whole neck seemed to be swollen. I have not changed the makeup I am using, and my cleanser is one that I have been using for years and I have never had a problem with it. I proceeded to see my doctor who explained that I should take a reactine or benadryl and apply a cool cloth. This helped take down the swelling and redness, but the itching still persisted.
Hi Everyone, I also have a rash on my hands, top crease of bottom, and the nape of neck. I first noticed it when I used a nail glue for glue of tips, but now I have stopped using tips & that glue and its still happening. I do still use acrylic nails and gel overlay so maybe they are just as bad? Not really sure. It may also be a nickel allergy or something to do with my hormones being imbalanced as I am also menopausal.
This morning I noticed I broke out in what almost looks like a rash. It's a group of little bumps on my neck that are extremely itchy and very irritating. I stopped using the medication after 2 doses. I was wondering if this could be an allergic reaction. Please help!
but now the severe itching is back and i can't stand it . it spread to my face, neck, ears, but the worse is on my legs. no bumps just itching.
The symptoms of this condition are symetrical itching on neck and arms with no rash, especially at night. Hope that works for you all as well!
I have an itchy rash that started under my arms and has spread to my back, neck, arms, and stomach. I went to dr and he gave me prednisone but today is the 10th day on it and the rash has not budged. I have not used a different soap shampoo or soap powder. I use ivory soap, borax soap powder (pure), and a scoriasis shampoo I have been using for a while without any problems. I did buy a comforter and the next morning I woke up itching but this has been going on for 2 wks now.
I have an itchy blotchy rash on my back, with several raised bumps (there are no blisters/heads to them). The whole red area is about the size of the palm of my hand, excluding my fingers. It started a couple months ago as a couple bumps where my bra strap is sewn into the back part of my bra (note:not a new bra). I really thought it was just the bra that was itching and tried several different bras (new & old).
The rash mainly effects torso, our backs around the waist, back of knees, upper and inner thighs, a bit on the wrists and neck. Nothing in the genital area. The new house we live in suffers from damp and mould due to our proximity to the sea... we use a dehumidifier... We are stuck for ideas now, doctors havent helped us nor have pharmacists. The next Dermatologist appointment we can get is in a month. We need help now! We have tried antihistamines and certain creams but to no avail.
I have a slightly red rash that's blotchy but not too noticeable that comes and goes that's located under my ears on the sides of both my neck. 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?
Not sure if I have asked this yet or not.. sorry if I have! Anyways, since my first "flare" in May 07 I have been getting an itchy rash just below my belly button. It starts as intense itching and then turns into welts/bumps. The more I itch the worse it gets. When I do have it it lasts several days and may not show again for several more months. Last night I woke up itching and it it back! At first I thought it was an allergic reaction to the buttons on my pants.
What you have described sounds typically like hives.Hives are raised, often itchy, red welts on the surface of the skin. They are usually an allergic reaction to food or medicine. When you have an allergic reaction to a substance, histamine and other chemicals are released into your bloodstream, causing itching, swelling, and other symptoms. Treatment may not be needed if the hives are mild. They may disappear on their own.
I have had a rash on my lower stomach below my belly button for several months now.It is itchy at times but i have been using anti itch cream which only seems to help once in a while.It is light red and blotchy and is surrounded by what looks like goosebumps.What could it be?
I recently have developed an itchy rash on my abdomen which at first resembled poison ivy. They started out as small clustered itchy bumps with slight blistering along my waist line. These red itchy bumps are now spreading one at a time along my legs arms, one on my neck and ear, now resembling small mosquito bites. I was recently away on business and I thought at first that the rash may have been caused by something from the hotel bed, but after I came home these bumps continued to spread.
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?
Hi, Are you on any medications? The neck rash could be due to several causes. You would need to see a skin specialist to rule out eczema, sweat dermatitis, heat rash, acne, folliculitis, etc. You could take some oral antihistamine or antiallergic medications like loratadine or cetrizine and see if it helps with your symptoms. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions to help soothe the itching. What other symptoms are you having? Since when have you noticed the lesions?
