Hi Your rash could be caused directly or indirectly by stress, allergic reactions (hives) heat or sun exposure, bacterial, viral or fungal infections, underlying medical illness or medications. Skin rashes are diagnosed clinically based on the history and appearance of the rash. You should consult a dermatologist so that he finds the exact cause and gives you medications to treat the underlying cause.
Could this tingling sensation have been caused by my initial anxiety or stress about contracting polio? I was VERY anxious about polio. I think I handle stress well (I have a stressful job) but worry about the most ridiculous 'health issues' (like polio for instance when I had nothing to worry about since I was vaccinated as a child). The more I research this tingling sensation on the internet the more over-wrought I become, imagining the worst.
Stress often causes several body changes. Skin can be one of them. 'Satellite' type (round) patches are often a sign of either a fungal infection or eczema (could be a number of other things as well)(itching could indicate eczema). Depending on the cause, (fungal, ecz, bact.) there are a number of treatments. For one, try showering with cooler water, keeping the areas clean (try cleaning with hibiclens).
Hello, What your boyfriend seems to be having is called dermatographism. Dermatographism can be caused by stress, tight or abrasive clothing, watches, glasses, energetic kissing, heat, cold, or anything that causes stress to the skin. It can be treated by antihistamines or cromoglicate and sometimes steroids, as they prevent the histamine from causing the reaction. As the underlying cause of dermographism is not known, it can last for many years without relief. I hope it helps.
could either of these issues have been caused by anxiety or is there more likely an underlying medical condition? I was definitely under a great deal of anxiety and stress prior to any of my skin problems appearing.
God bless all. A stress rash or hives on the skin can develop when a person is under stress. Whether stress or anxiety has this effect on an individual depends on many factors and no two people will react the same. Stress and especially constant daily stress affects the health of individuals in many ways. Often health problems are difficult to link directly to stress, but without a doubt, it does play a role in poor health. Heart problems, high blood pressure, mental disorders, etc.
Really appreciate er response mate. My rashes are slowly responding to the drugs prescribed by my doctor (which is a good thing) am 10 days into medication & already I can notice a massive improvement. The spots/Rashes are fast disappearing (they are getting smaller & smaller, ultimately disappearing completely) I just hope they don't come back, soon i will be able to move around in shorts & sleeveless.
Fatigue that is so extreme, BP that falls as low as 70/35 and causes me to pass out, recurring pancreatitis, headaches, permanent swollen glands in throat and axilla, itchy skin that rashes up at will, and a beautiful Mediterranean sun tan without the holiday. Nausea when eating, loss of hearing in one ear and blurry vision also add to the pot pourri of symptoms. I have had every specialty look at specific areas except Endocrinologist and Rheumatologist. ANA negative, Ca 19.
Onion, Kiwi, Pine Nuts, Bupropion I've been dealing with the following for almost a half year now and it's starting to become unbearable. Last year I had a bout of dermographia which was caused by an allergic reaction to Wellbutrin. It's been over 8 months since I last took it and the dermographia is no longer "official" (ie: no longer going on 24/7) I am now on Cymbalta. I also take Neurontin, Temazepam and Clonazepam.
I haven't had any outbreaks on my body (as I've researched herpes is caused by an original skin contact or sexual escapade). After 2 days of putting gold bond ointment it has almost gone away. I'm waiting for a blood test results that the doctor took and won't come back until next Monday. Just trying to calm myself down and seeing if it's possibly not herpes but a rash due to sweat and hair in that area. Regards.
1. When I was 17 years old I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. I was missing patches of hair for about a year and a half & then my hair began to grow back again. (Currently, I am not missing any hair.) 2. Again, since I was about 17 I have had extreme pain in my knees. I went to a specialist, got an MRI, & they told me nothing was wrong. 3. I've also had many skin problems since I was about 17. Every so often I get rashes that last for weeks.
Near the foreskin, there are small,red, and *slightly* swollen rashes that itch a lot. The skin is slightly foldy and dry at the base of the penis. When erect, these outward signs are barely visible. The condition has worsened from day 1 to day 2. There is no constant urge to itch during the day, but it gets very itchy if I stroke or rub the penis. I've been refraining from masturbation since I noticed this, and have used some moisturizing lotion.

Since my fibro symptoms started years ago, i've had a lot of rashes,like hive and very sensitive to heat skin. I thought it was allergy to food but it got worse and then I thought it was from one of the medications. I was on several muscle relaxants, pain killers, sleeping pills that I had no idea which caused the symptom. I tried to drink lots of water in hope that it'd dilute the toxins but didn't help much.
Hello, You seem to be having dermatographism. Dermatographism can be caused by stress, tight or abrasive clothing, watches, glasses, energetic kissing, heat, cold, or anything that causes stress to the skin. It can be treated by antihistamines or cromoglicate and sometimes steroids, as they prevent the histamine from causing the reaction. As the underlying cause of dermographism is not known, it can last for many years without relief. My sincere advice would be to consult an allergist.
My hair is constantly coming out especially when I shower there is always a ball of hair in the drain- I've been told this is caused by stress. I have a lot of stress in my life so this is believable. I struggle wth depression as well and my memory has become progressively worse. I also have this problem where I'm always scratching my scalp- idk why it's like a nervous habit. Could this be causing my hair loss?
The area of the skin that is affected by the rash or skin lesions caused by shingles can remain sensitive for several days, even after the rash and lesions have disappeared.

But I have had taken a few different antibiotics a month ago. Do you think its caused by chronic stress that I have been having? I am normally healthy, exercise daily, but I have mild IBS. I am delaying my visit to the doc because I have an unhappy stomach with gastritis after taking so many antibiotics. Though my gastritis is under control now anything could trigger an attack. Please advise.
Hello, Your symptoms are suggestive of pityriasis versicolor. It is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climate. Most cases of fungal infection respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine, ketaconazole and clotrimazole.
com about a woman who's daughter of the same age as me had it in 1999 but there was not much mention of the condition of hyperbeta blah blah. On wikipedia it is related to post traumatic stress.

This led me to believe that the itchiness may have been caused by a skin parasite afterall as I thought this might have been some sort of egg or mite faeces? However I visited yet another doctor today who advised that what I had looked like a fungal skin infection and that scabies do not leave behind what I described. This doctor prescribed cetirizine (hydrochloride 10mg) tablets to be taken one daily and a miconazole nitrate 2% / hydrocortisone 1% cream for my bottom / groin area.
Hi, This an allergic reaction to the chemical composition of Tide probably.Contact dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin caused by direct contact with an irritating or allergy-causing substance (irritant or allergen). Reactions may vary in the same individual over time.

My doctor thinks mine may be caused by high cortisol at night. We did some tests (saliva) and he recommended a supplement call Phoshatidylserine (PS-100). It will lower cortisol levels only if they are high and it has good effects on your brain. It is the main essential fatty acid in the brain and it is the compound that declines with age. So even if it doesn't help the insomnia, it is good for me!
You say you don't believe it is a "bug." Your website says: "This skin disease is believed to be caused by an organism which has been difficult to identify." In one of your responses, you say: My take on why this organism has not been identified is similar to what happened with the discovery of Helicobacter pylori and ulcer disease. An organism is a living thing, whether you call it a bug or not. What makes you think there is a living thing causing these fibers.
