Allergic rash on chest

Common Questions and Answers about Allergic rash on chest


Avatar f tn I've had a rash on the trunk of my body for 3 nights already. Last night I went to a walk in clinic and the doctor gave me chlorphenamine maleate tablets. At first they were working fine and the itch started to go. But I've been getting chest tightness, shortness of breath and also the rash is spreading further out to the peripheral body parts. Is it due to the drugs given? Should I get checked out again?
Avatar m tn a few months ago a rash started developing in localized areas. A ferw spots on my arms and thishs and chest. I thought it was bed bugs, scabies psriosis everything really. Today i woke up to itchy rash just on my thighs where the skin was harvested. i don't know if its allergic reaction to beer, chocolate or what. I took prednisone and everything cleared up accompanied with hydrocortisone cream. any ideas?
Avatar n tn I have an itchy rash on my chest that started in one area and has slowly moved across the chest (as it fades in the initial area). It actually started around a road rash burn on my shoulder several months back, and is now all the way across my chest on the other pectoral. The bumps eventually form a head which I eventually itch off in exasperation. Please help.
Avatar n tn I am a 24y/o female and have a rash on my upper chest. I have had a cat for the last 20 years (I recently put her down) and my housemate just recently got a new one (about 2 days before the rash broke out). The rash is red and inflamed and I am unsure if this could be an allergic reaction to the cat. I have not gotten a rash anywhere else on my body. There are no rashes on other places on my body where the cat has touched. Also, the rash has no puss or blister like qualities.
Avatar f tn I developed a rash on my chest about a week ago, mainly on the right side and it looks like mosquito bites and itches a lot but not constantly. I don't know whether it's just a rash or if it's connected to STDs. I haven't had intercourse for over a month and I wasn't exposed on anything that might cause an allergy. I haven't used anything on it yet. Could someone help me figuring out what it is? Thank you This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/599938'>chest rash</a>.
Avatar m tn From the research I did, there is a possibility of this being a poison ivy rash. Is it? The rash area on the skin now becomes less sensitive upon touch. the itchyness is felt more after a shower or while sweating. Can anybody give me a hint at what this might be? Have you encountered similar symptoms? thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn There are a few on my back and as I said above, none above my neck or on my stomach or chest. I looked up hives, herpes, rashes... everything I could search on the web and nothing looks like this. They are not insect bites or bed bug bites. At this point I think it's an allergic reaction of some kind and wonder what I should do next. Because I'm not really bothered by it I hate to go to the doctor and pay all the fees... help!
Avatar n tn 14 days after having oral protected insertive sex accompanied by fingering (albeit with a small cut which was not bleeding but i believe scabbed) i developed the rash shown in the attached photos. the rash is mainly in the chest and back areas. i had been out doing some water sports wearing a rush (polyster) vest earlier in the day). is it possible that this is ARS/HIV rash? or is it heat rash?

Avatar m tn Rash on chest as well. and Point about "how would I know if the condom broke" I should add that I was quite drunk at the time. I am as close to positive as I can be that it didn't break, but I didn't check all that closely. But would I have felt it break?

Avatar n tn I just recently, (One week) got a rash?, I'm not sure if you would call it a rash. They started as small red bumbs that itched in the middle of my chest between my breast,(I'm a man) and hairy. They itched a kinda of developed a kinda of scab, now I see them on the sides of my torso. Am I dying or am I allergic to something? They are little red dots.
Avatar n tn I have a rash on my upper arms, chest, and torso. The rash is fine in appearance and seems to itch more at night. Oral antihistimines give very limited relief. I should mention the rash is on my upper thighs as well.
Avatar n tn my son has a red rash on his chest back and neck .its not itchy but very sore looking.what is it?should i bring him to a doctor?
Avatar n tn In powder form, you could just sprinkle it over the rash. The rash disappears in a day with cooler temperatures.
Avatar f tn hi, i developed this rash about two months ago along whats thought to be swine flu, i have had it once before on my back after traveling for 5 hours in a car with leather seats and it went away so just assumed it was a heat rash, as i did this time until it hasnt gone away it started on my back then spread to my shoulders and now in my cleavage.
Avatar m tn one more question i just got another one and they come on one or two at a time i just got one on my chest its kind of hard does it sound like folliculitus?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn The rash will clear up as long as I am on Antiobotics. The rash is on the center on the chest area right below the collar bone. I have been to the Dr. 5 to 6 times since January. I have been on steriods 2 or 3 times and antiobotics 4 to 5 times. I have taken AM & PM allergies medication giving to me by perscription.I have taken cough medication in PM. Every time I come off the antiobotics, the rash will appear on my chest a few days after I finish up my antiobiotics.
Avatar f tn Ok so I have cluster headaches and they started in the beginning of November well 3 days after my first headache I started to get an itchy rash on my chest and arms and they finally went away just this last week but I also have a rash on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet and a few on my genital area now and I'm scared anyone know what it could possibly be? I have been using hydrocortisone cream daily 3 times a day and it's starting to disappear.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be viral rash, allergic reaction, heat rash, scabies, lice, insect bites or infection skin as the swelling under the jaw can be a swollen lymph node. You may try calamine lotion on the rash. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. You can also use a barrier cream with zinc oxide paste or calamine lotion or a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash. For the itching you can take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin.
Avatar n tn I am taking cisplatin and gemzar and after completing 3 cycles I have developed a rash. The rash is on my forearrms, upper chest ,lower half of thighs and lower legs. My internist thought it was areas that had been exposed to the sun and appears to be an allergic rash. This chemo protocol is working very well bringing down my ca125. My oncologist is going to try pre medicating me with decadron next cycle. What can you tell me about rashes due to gemzar and can treatment continue?

Avatar f tn Hello, Such type of rash can be due to contact dermatitis, allergies, viral rash (less likely) or heat rash. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Make him 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.
