No hot flashes, but definitely sweating. I am now having the hot flashes but no sweating!! Maybe putting a call into the Dr wouldnt hurt. I was hot last night and my temp was up a bit and I thought it was a fever, but it went down after an hour or so. Dr just called and said he needs to know these things, but it is perfectly normal to get hot etc... Good luck!
I AM A 42 YEAR OLD FEMALE THAT IS SUFFERING FROM A SKIN RASH/REACTION ON MY FACE. THIS IS THE 2ND TIME THIS HAS OCCURED. THE FIRST TIME WAS NOVEMBER 2006. I WENT TO ALLERGISTS, DERMATOLOGISTS, ACUPUNCTURIST, ETC. AND NOTHING WAS ACCURATELY DIAGNOSED. ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO I USED AN OIL FREE ACNE WASH- A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER I NOTICED WHAT SEEMED TO BE SMALL BUMPS OR A RASH ON MY FOREHEAD, THE T ZONE AND CHIN. IT HAS BEEN 3 WEEKS AND I HAVE SEEN LITTLE IMPROVEMENT.
Try to use hypoallergenic or mild soap to help prevent such lesions. This could also be caused sweating or from sweat rash or miliaria, a skin disease marked by small and sometimes itchy rashes. If it persists, have this evaluated further for proper management. Direct clinical examination will help with the diagnosis. Take care and regards.
I can understand your concern for the itchy skin rash and have checked the photograph. From your symptoms, there can be many possibilities but few important possibilities which need to be ruled out are: 1) Contact dermatitis: Irritant contact dermatitis which occurs when chemicals or physical agents damage the surface of the skin. These irritant can be everyday things as water, detergents, solvents, acids etc. 2) Second possibility is of sweat dermatitis. It is a form of atopic dermatitis.
Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be rash due to viral infection,contact dermatitis,rash due to friction rub with clothes, dermatitis (atopic, contact, allergic) or excessive sweating causing sweat dermatitis. You may try calamine lotion on the rash.You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
for about 6 months, I have had a skin rash around my mid section. I also have some on my outer arms and parts of my legs. If I am in bed and it gets a little too warm. I start to itch. I was taking terazosin 1mg that my Doctor had prescribe. I thought this was the cause so I stop taking it. It has been awhile since and I still have these little red bumps around my sides of my chest and outer arms and back. If I put lotion on it, it is better. If I scratches it, it makes it worse.
The main treatment for sweat dermatitis is prevention. The best thing to consider is to prevent that portion of the body from sweating like by wearing light and cotton clothes,taking cool refreshing baths,maintaining the temperature in your homes and cars and avoiding strenuous activities. If however sweat dermatitis occurs,then pls apply mild corticosteroid creams like dermacort or hydrocortisone or calamine lotion on the rashes.
Everytime my body temperature rises, my face will turn red and feel of stinging sensation due to initial sweating. After sweating for more than 5~10 minutes however, the irritation will subside but return at a later time after my body temperature has cooled down. I have noticed the problem to be under control when I am in environment of high temperature and high humidity. I experience frequent occurence in Fall and Winter in dry weather environment.
As soon as i took a dive into the pool the rash started forming again. (Assuming that travel from home to pool already caused me to sweat a little) while i was rubbing my rashy forearm in the water i could feel my arm was slightly oily, i assume that it is my sweat. Am i right to say so? The rash completely fades away in about 30 minutes, it doesnt appear on my face, neck, below waist area and buttocks. I just want to clarify that i do not have any excessive sweating problems(Hyperhidrosis).
i recently visited a immunologist, she took some skin test, she told me that i was allergic to alot things, could my sweating come from alergies.
Hi, Rash in body folds is referred to as intertrigo. This is due to relatively high skin temperature, moisture or sweating, and friction from movement of adjacent skin. It is particularly common in those who are overweight. Because of this, bacteria and yeasts which are normally resident on the skin multiply in such environments and may result in further damage to the skin. Tests may be done to determine the cause of intertrigo.
Body folds are prone to inflammatory rashes because of relatively high skin temperature and moisture from insensible water loss and sweating cannot evaporate. Friction from movement of adjacent skin also results in chafing. Bacteria and yeasts which are normally resident on the skin multiply in such environments and may result in further damage to the skin. Diagnosis needs a swab for microscopy and culture of micro-organisms, or a scraping to rule out fungi.
Had RAI two months ago, sweating worse and still going through it. I will go from freezing (hey, it's Utah and it's COLD) to drenched in sweat in a flash. Night is crazy, shivering under three blankets then laying on top of the sheets drenched in sweat 5 minutes later. Hot coffee will make me have a hot flash, a warm bath will do the same thing. It's insane. I've been sweating through hypothyroidism (TSH over 70) to my now hyperthyroidism (TSH .
The bumps are skin color, now I work out alot, so i don't know if it's from that. I also wash my face daily. It doesn't itch at all, nor do I feel it there. I also have a rash behing my ear, I think it from my earings but I'm not sure. It really red and it's bumpy and there in big blotches!
Hello, From the symptoms it can be contact dermatitis or heat rash or sweat dermatitis. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort. For the itching antihistaminics like Benadryl or Claritin can be taken.
I also put unscented gel deodorant on my inner thighs sometimes to keep from sweating and chafing and getting a rash.

The reason the rash tends to stay on your arms and legs is from the heat/sweating in those areas. Cotton clothing breathes the best.
You should reconsult with your doctor to rule out the following possible causes - 'Perfumes, chemicals, or dye on toilet paper can cause an allergic reaction.

Rash on chest-rectangle from bra strap to bra strap. Makes me think its fabric allergy, but it started this summer hot weather in a seatbelt distribution neck/collarbone area-that area no longer has the rash. Distinct red bumps, reminds me of measles which I caught 4yrs ago from MMR shot. Itches insanely.
i later found out that if you have had mono or ebstein bar in the past that your are 80 percent likely to develop a rash. After i realized what the rash was from i figured id take medication and it'd go away. well i was wrong. I was put on a steroid and the rash did get much better, but never completely healed. After about 2 weeks the itching completely stopped until yesterday wen the itching started up again.
It is more likely to occur on the neck and upper chest, in the groin, under the breasts, and in elbow creases. Adults usually develop heat rash in skin folds and wherever clothing causes friction. Most often, heat rash goes away on its own. Severe forms of heat rash may need medical care, but the best way to relieve symptoms is to cool your skin and prevent sweating. Keep the affected area dry. Dusting powder may be used to increase comfort.
They are tiny and seem to be located just under the skin, gathering in clusters that resemble 'mini-blisters'. They are skin coloured and very hard to notice unless I look at my hands closely. They seem to come and go, currently I don't have them but I did a few weeks ago when they were quite severe, I'm guessing it is an allergy to something that sometimes I have handled. 2. Two weeks ago I noticed I had a few red spots on my left arm just above the elbow on the outside.
However, it seems from your description that the lesions might be some kind of allergic eruptions, milia, heat rash, skin infections / contact dermatitis. Hives are usually allergic caused by food and insect stings also besides medication or cosmetics. Sometimes they may also be due to infections, heat, cold or stress ((emotional / physical). Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.
Since then the areas are still there. They seem to get worse after sex. The areas become flaky and a thin layer of discolored skin will peel off(especially after showering or sex). I have been diagnosed with eczema before. I also have these areas around my nostrils and one area on my ankle that is very similar. I was concerned it could be herpes, but it doesnt look anything like the pictures i have seen. If you could give me your opinion i would appreciate it.
the hair follicules look irritated and deep red, and i have refrained from shaving for the duration of the rash. my skin feels raised and mottled but theres been no change in diet, environment or medication. sometimes the itching is at a minimum and the rash seems almost gone, but then it flares up (usually at night) and i cant even stand it! please help, im suffering!
