1657646 tn?1302281413 ve had all the blood work done and continue to see my rheumatologist. Discussing physical symptoms I mentioned a raised rash I get on my chest, shoulders and arms after I've been out in the sun for extended periods of time. While my blood work comes back negative for lupus, my rheumatologist says that lupus can have overlapping symptoms. So do I have lupus, but it's not showing up in blood work? Will lupus eventually develope more?
571042 tn?1271447141 Brock has very sensitive skin, and I have asked about allergies as well. One of his cheeks is always red. The ped. said that one sign of allergies is a rash around the mouth...not just redness, but a splotchy, red rash. I'm assuming it looks darker. We haven't had any issues with allergies to foods.
Avatar m tn Hello, How are you? The features that you mentioned can be due to SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus). Lupus is a condition characterized by chronic inflammation of body tissues caused by autoimmune disease. When only the skin is involved, the condition is called discoid lupus. When internal organs are involved, the condition is called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Both discoid and systemic lupus are more common in women than men.
Avatar m tn I started experiencing a rash, night sweats, and sore throat a few weeks after engaging in unprotected sex. Initially my doctor suspected allergies and I was prescribed presidone for one week. The rash, which covered almost my entire body is now contained to my torso and arms. Sometimes my face gets really red. The rash tends to get better but suddenly worsens again. After doing some research, I saw that the symptoms I was experiencing may be a sign of a recent HIV infection.
666921 tn?1254990618 Absolutely. Ever since the bullseye rash I have been plagued with frequent rashes and allergies. They are very itchy and bothersome. I have a rash right now that is pretty much all over. They seem to last for about 6 weeks then start to resolve.

Avatar n tn THYROID IS FINE, IM NOT DIABETIC, NO SICKLE CELL ANEMIA, I DONT HAVE HIV, LIVER PANEL SHOWED I WAS NORMAL, NO SIGN OF ANY INFECTION OR DISEASE. I HAVE HAD SYMPTOMS THAT WOULD SUGGEST MILIARIA PROFUNDA EXCEPT I NEVER GOT A RASH. I WOULD USUALLY GET IT WHEN STRESSED,NERVOUS,EXERCISING BUT IT WOULD GO AWAY AS SOON AS I WOULD START SWEATING. NOW IT SEEMS IAM ITCHY ALL THE TIME AND I CAN NO LONGER SWEAT.
Avatar f tn Psoriasis can appear that way, but early rashes can look very similar to one another. It is very hard to help you without lots of history, the location, a picture, your age, other symptoms. But common causes of itchy rashes are eczema, ring worm, other fungal infections, psoriasis. You can get a rash called a Christmas tree rash that is on your torso. I'm not sure if those itch or not, but that one is a virus that goes away on its own.
Avatar f tn The ER doctor gave her meds for the pain and rash of which the rash is slowing going away but the pain in her joints is still there. She doesn’t have any precondition autoimmune diseases that we are aware of but she does suffer from hypertension, neuropathy in her feet, and carpel tunnel syndrome. We have no idea what is going on with her??? She doesn’t have the flu although she did have a bladder infection that is being treated with medication...

Avatar m tn If you face any of such symptoms again, please take an over the counter antihistaminic like Benadryl or zyrtec.If symptoms are severe, oral steroids may be needed. Also, if it is your private pool, then ask swimming pool manufacturers to replace chlorine with some other chemical to which you are not allergic. If you sense any difficulty in breathing after entering the pool, then please consult an ER immediately as it can be life threatening anaphylaxis.
Avatar n tn My 14 month old has had an hand rash that looks like tiny red bumps on her hands and forearms. My husband and I have also seen it on our hands in a less severe form. The bumps come and go and feel like splinters, I have also seen them on my palms. The rash is intermitent, it comes and goes. beneadryl has not worked and the corticosteroid prescribed has not made a difference either. Any idea as to what this could be?
Avatar n tn A history,and how it started,associated symptoms like fever,itching would help to come to some diagnosis.As spotter i can think of a viral rash,ampicillin drug allergy,nothing serious though.
Avatar f tn they are allergies. and yes, go to the doctor to get some medication.

Avatar f tn So I have suffered from daily allergies all of my life. Every winter I would be so sick I would miss tons of school, at least a month every year. I thought I had a horrible immune system, and was really embarrased that I was always sick. Just recently I was diagnosed with rhinitis and given a steroid nasal spary. It worked for two months. My symptoms are back. I'm dizzy, exhausted, sometimes confused. I feel disoriented at times, have headaches and migraines.
Avatar f tn a few hours later, his cheeks were still red and seemed to be getting worse. as i was getting him ready for bed i noticed a rash appearing around his neck and gradually moving towards his back. i got worried and gave him some bennadryl instantly. the red cheeks went away as well as the rash and he fell asleep. i assumed the aloe vera was to blame. the next day he woke up, no red cheeks but still a rash. i kept him out of the sun and went to the park instead.
Avatar m tn This sounds like food intolerance or allergies. Is the rash like hives? If so I would keep a food diary to enable me to see what was causing symptoms. Severe symptoms need medical investigation and treatment as severe allergies can cause anaphylactic shock.
Avatar n tn Fungal infection may present with a rash with a well defined border. The rash may be itchy and scaly. In a sweat rash, the rash may present with small vesicles and they may also itchy. They are usually associated with excessive sweating. Do you have any of these conditions? I suggest ,that you have this assessed by a dermatologist. You may need an antihistamine for the itch. Microscopic evaluation of skin scrapings of the area may help define a fungal infection. Do you have any allergies?
Avatar n tn 4 days into taking the Bactrim i started to get congested in my head. I took an antihistamine for allergies which cleared my head..I soon developed sore neck muscles in the next couple of days. The final day of taking the Bactrim i had sore neck muscles on both sides and i started to get a rash which started at my ankles and soon spread over my entire body. The rash itched. I went to the doc and they said it was a reaction to the Batrim, but I had taken the Bactrim for 10 days...
Avatar n tn No pets, no travel, no flu like symptons, no history of asthma or any other allergies, now some of the spots look more like a heat rash, but they go away and come back in a different spot, either as a dot or as a small patch. Only on her chest and stomach, last time i went to the dr they said it was a mild case of chicken pox, because she was vaccinated, but now this is the same thing so I don't think it was pox the first time either.
Avatar n tn Is it common that these might cause a rash? I do not have any rash on other parts of my body....just my neck and upper chest area.
Avatar m tn Hello, This itchy rash can be allergic reaction , eczema which is often precipitated by allergies or some chronic skin disease. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used, whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid. But they are available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a dermatologist. Symptoms can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin.
Avatar m tn t know if this is a heat rash, or if seasonal allergies can do things to the skin as well as sinuses? Does this sound familiar at all? Thank you in advance!
Avatar f tn , ive learned to keep a small blanket with me at all times and usually within 10 minutes of wrapping myself with it the rash disappears. ok but my biggest problem with this dumb rash is EXERCISING!!
Avatar m tn Hello, In the absence of a rash and from the symptoms it can be due to allergies, sweat dermatitis, neurodermatitis or eczema. Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. Also wear cotton clothes and apply good quality moisturizers. If the symptoms persist then please get it examined from a dermatologist as you may need steroids.
