Rash that looks like sunburn

Common Questions and Answers about Rash that looks like sunburn


Avatar_n_tn No, doesn't look like that at all. Looks just like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> on the first day.
Avatar_n_tn thought I might have some for of Rocesea since a biopsy of tissue showed inflammaation but not much else. The warm weather is what really aggrivates this condition. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> looks pretty much like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> when I get really warm the redness increases. It is only localized to my neck area and is not on my chest or face. I have also tried hydrocortisone creams and those don't provide any relief either. I am also a long time user of the drug Dipentum which I take for Ulcerative Colitis.
Avatar_m_tn The skin is pealing like a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> but it is flaking off now like when I get out of the shower. Looks like really dry skin then. Almost tempted to say this is a chemical burn, but I have not spilled any chemicals on myself. Any thoughts would be great.
Avatar_f_tn Two days ago I noticed a bright red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that looks like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> all over my body (not my face). It hurt to the touch. It has since gone away mostly (no redness) but now I am extremely itchy. I don't have a fever but I have a headache, some nausea, body aches and pains (especially in shoulders, jaw, and lower back) and fatigue. I just don't feel right and I am having a hard time concentrating or focusing on studying (I'm a full time student). The itchy is driving me insane! Please help.
Avatar_n_tn My GP is at a loss as he has never seen a rash like this pop out of nowhere on a persons neck only that has a sort of necklace pattern even though I do not wear jewelry nor have I ever had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> like this. It's flat, angry and looks like a sunburn though it itches like crazy! Anyone have any idea's? I would greatly appreciate any help someone might give here. Thank you.
Avatar_n_tn I have lived with a neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that looks exactly like a severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span>.........right in the front area........and it never goes away........Just thought you''d like to know......I'm also hypothyroid.......and have been treated for that......almost as long.........my very best to you in finding out the cause of your disturbing symptoms.........peace and love.......
Avatar_f_tn Hi. I wanted to know why my skin looks like its sunburned or that I've been out in the sun. It doesn't have a rash or any lesions nor does it itch or peel. I would really appreciate any suggestions or answers you may have....I have had this condition for quite awhile and just wanted any feedback .
Avatar_n_tn Last week my face started again same as before, today its so bad it looks like ive been burnt, I am struggling and feel I dont know what to do with myself its that painful. I am going to get an emergency docs app tomorrow but am worried they will not be able to advise that well. Any idea/help welcome.
Avatar_n_tn Hey, sounds crazy that the backs of your knees would be swollen like that, I know. But could be that sun poison has spread. That happened with me and now I have to be extra careful out in the sun for any length of time. I have also had sun poison on my face and lips - and TRUST ME - it was horrible. I hope that you can get some relief soon - if you haven't seen your doc, I would make appt....some type of Rx might help.
Avatar_n_tn I have a very itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that looks like ringworms. It goes away and comes back but only on my arms. When the sun shines on it, it burns like a sunburn. I have been to several doctors and have taken numerous medicines. No one knows what it is. It could be this, it could be that. PLEASE HELP!!!! The itching is driving me crazy.
Avatar_f_tn Now it has gotten worse and looks like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> instead of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. The hospital has suggested that it may have been caused from the colonostophy (some sort of a bad bacteria in the procedure). He is seeing his Doctor again tomorrow. Any ideas?
Avatar_n_tn i have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on my face and neck kinda looks like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> that itches like crazy! i went to the doctor and got a steriod shot and it went away for two days then came right back.
Avatar_n_tn i have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> running up my arms to my shoulders that looks like small blisters, after exposure to the sun. it is extremely itchy. is there anything i can use to get rid of it. i do use suncream as i am blond with fair skin and burn easily.
Avatar_m_tn Actually, it feels, looks and hurts just like regular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span>. Also, the day I got the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> was only a sunny 72 degreesF (no sweating involved).
Avatar_n_tn One day it may almost completely disappear, then all of a sudden it reappears. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> is not bumpy, it actually looks like a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span>. But it's shape looks like that of a clown's painted on mouth! It is very evident and very odd looking. He has had this off & on for about 3 weeks. I have taken away various foods to see if that could be the cause. I've even changed to a much milder toothpaste and have been very careful when I'm brushing his teeth. I've given him benedryl (sp?
Avatar_f_tn i had unprotected sex with a prostitute 3 months ago and recently had the ora quick test come back negative. i have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that looks like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> with bumps in the middle(flesh colored).i was in the sun the other day so i suppose it could be a sunburn. could you tell me what an hiv rash looks like?does it resemble a sunburn at all?should this be cause to get re-tested?
Avatar_n_tn However, for the past year or so I have been developing a strange rash on my forehead which seems to come and go. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> isn't itchy at all. It is like raised bumps all over my forehead and the skin appears greasy. The bums are generally skin coloured, not red. When I brush my hand over it, it feels a bit like sandpaper. It started when I was about 4 weeks into using the Duac Gel and appeared quite suddenly, within about 2 days.
Avatar_m_tn My son has a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that looks like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> on his forearm and thigh. It does not itch but hurts like a sunburn. Looks as if he has been burn but he has not. It has even a perfectely straight line on part of it as if it had been covered from the sun. I have worked in the medical field for 20 years and have not seen anything like it. No blisters or spots of any kind.
Avatar_m_tn they are gone after I took anti-histamines and rubbed hydroquarterzone on them. However on my face they still exist. It looks like I got a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> (red/hot to the touch) - no raised bumps however. Does this warrant testing? and are these ARS symptoms?
623944_tn?1244039090 Hi, I've been going to the doctor for several years for ringing in my ears which is 25/7, burning skin pain without a rash, (feels like I have a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> but skin looks fine) neuropathy, intolerance to cold, very frequent cold sores which I take valtrex for, pain in fingers and toes like I've been out in the cold and motion sickness type feeling. My bloodwork has been normal except MRI of brain shows signal abnormalities in marrow, very slightly elevated kappa/lambda ratio (3.
Avatar_n_tn For a couple of years now I notice a strange <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on my penis. At first my skin looks a little dry, then I notice little skin peeling ( similar to what you would see from a sunburn). After the skin peel it turns red. Not much itching going on. Just looks bad at times. This happens sometimes a few days after intercourse. Sometimes its in a small area other times it large. Mainly located on the shaft right below the ridge. I put Cultivate on it, this usually clears it up in a few days.
Avatar_f_tn Next day same thing but spots darker red on belly, back and neck, and looks a lot like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> on face arms..feels like it too (radiating heat, sensitive to touch). Havent been in the sun. Ive been taking lamotrigine for about 2 weeks and I know its associated with some serious rashes. Went to GP when the rash wasnt this bad and she said its probably something viral and possibly the medication, talk to the person who prescribed the lamotrgine.
Avatar_n_tn On the second day a bright red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> (looks like a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> but isn't) appeared on my upper ankle. On the third day I began taking furosemide. The edema is getting better but the rash has spread almost all the way around my lower leg and is very sensitive to the touch. There is also some red coloring appearing on the outer side of my foot and small toe. What could this be?
Avatar_f_tn My problem is I just started taking it 5 days ago and now I feel like bugs are crawling all over me. I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> starting on my leg that itches like a razor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. I am not sure if I am having severe anxiety attack or if this is a side effect from the Lamictal. Please respond if you know anything about this. I am going crazy.
Avatar_f_tn Hello, Since the rash is non itchy hence it looks less likely to be due to allergies. It looks like due to sun burns. Apply cool compresses on the area and take bath with cool(not very cold) water. Do not scrub your skin or shave your skin and use a soft towel and gently pat your skin dry.Also use a sunburn Over-The-Counter remedy containing aloe vera and a light moisturizer or a dusting powder to relieve chafing.
Avatar_n_tn It will start to look like it is about to heal but as soon as I get direct sunlight it flares up again. It looks like it is going to leave a nasty scar and refuses to completely heal. I also have one lesion on my stomach and one on my back that look similar. These do not look like they will scar but they do not go away either. Do you know what could cause this? I am not on any meds but I do have vitiligo. I have had it since childhood. Could this be causing the sun sensitivity?
Avatar_n_tn The bright red rash is only somewhat itchy, but after about a day, it fades and looks a bit like old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sunburn</span> at that point. I often get a darkening of the skin in the area, almost like a tan. I have noticed my skin becoming more sensitive as I get older. I wonder if it's a sort of heat rash. Do you think that might be what yours is??
999891_tn?1407279676 Have you ever looked into your thyroid? That is one cause of having very dry skin. Also, have you tried prescription steriod creme? I use Bethamethasone 0.1% ointment and it does help if I am good about putting it on. Maybe something you can try? I'll let you know what I find out!
