Chest rash alcohol

Common Questions and Answers about Chest rash alcohol


Avatar n tn For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.
689528 tn?1364139441 Uuuuuugh!! I just wanna scream and cry!! LOL I've had this rash that started Saturday. It started around my collarbone. Now it's gone down to my chest and is creeping onto my belly!! It is sooo itchy. I put no name aveeno on it last night and it BURNED!! The best way to describe it is like a heat rash because it's prickly like that! Can't catch a break I tell ya! No idea what it's from. I've had allergy testing in the past and am not allergic to common allergens.
Avatar f tn Do let us know how things work out— Bill Denise, I reacted to her description of the rash being on areas that were sun-prone such as her arms and chest; perhaps I didn’t read her description thoroughly. As always, it’s nearly impossible to guess what conditions a person has over the internet but maybe this gives her something to bounce off her primary care doc. The PCP is often unaware of associations with HCV/Porphyria; this might help? I dunno :o).
Avatar n tn Recently, a friend of mine experienced a severe 'rash' on the face, neck, chest, back, upper arms and hands. The areas were bright red (noticable in a dimmly lit room) and the skin was very warm to the touch but not visibly swollen. We thought that this may have been a reaction to seafood. There was only a slight tightness in the chest, with no difficulty breathing and no change in heart rate. The rash was gone the following morning with no visible changes in the areas.
Avatar f tn Some hours had passed and eventually I noticed that I had developed a rash on my face, neck chest, and wrists. After I saw the rash I used some cortisone lotion, and I quit drinking, and when I woke up the next morning the rash had gone away. I hadn't eaten anything unusual or had any medications in my system. Is there any chance that this could have been alcohol poisoning?
Avatar n tn Ever since a bad experience with alcohol a couple of years ago, i have been having very strong reactions whenever i drink. Before this incident, i did have some kind of reaction to alcohol, having a red face and increased heart beat. Now, i have the same symptoms, but in addition if feel very ill to the stomach and have the need to regurgitate the alcohol. I do not feel drunk at all during this experience, which occurs from as little as 1/2 a bottle of alcohol.

Avatar f tn My PCP prescribed a medication which temporarily relieves the rash, but the rash eventually returns. It is slightly red, bumpy, and scaly. When I do any type of exerice or any sweat-inducing activity, the rash itches. Moreover, I have noticed that I have a tremendous amount of dandruff in my hair. I have been taking anti-dandruff shampoo (prescription strength) but it has done little to alleviate the problem. Could these two problems be related?
363682 tn?1299492962 For around three or four years now, I have been suffering from headaches some two hours or more after the consumption of any amount of alcohol - although typically as few as two drinks upwards of any kind of alcohol. The headaches come on slowly but persistently and follow a line from the left side of my neck across the top of my head to just above the left eyebrow. They are not sharp pains but more of a constant 'throb' and can go on for hours.
Avatar n tn there are loads of people dealing with this, so many people have posted similar stories about their rash. The only thing i can suggest is talk to your doc about betablockers. They helped for me (only temporarily as the doc didn't want me taking them forever) but it's worth a try. mine was called nadalol i think, i only got the rash once in 3 months when i was taking them and i usually get it every day.
Avatar n tn "ars rash in on body" What does that mean??? My rashes have been a rash across shoulders, small flat red spots (this was after a long night of consuming a lot of alcohol) approx 5 weeks after and a rash covering my thighs and chest only which consisted of tiny red pimple like spots approx 13 weeks after.
Avatar m tn i left it alone them broke out in a rash around the cyst. soon it spread to my chest, i went to the doctor and told me it was irritation caused through the deodorant i was using. she prescribed my an antibiotic then a anxiety medication to relieve the itch...the anxiety medicine didn't really work much, been taking the antibiotic for almost a week and the rash keeps spreading to my other armpit stomach and neck and arms. i havent been able to sleep much at all.
Avatar m tn Usualloy, my hans and my feet itch a lot and then after a few ays I satrt to see target rashes appear, first on my hands and then on my arms. On a few occasions, it has spread to my chest and back. I take hypertensive medicine and my doctor thought that this might be the cause (an adverse reaction to the drug). I have changed medication from Diovan HCT to Benecar to Losatum Potassium to DoxaZosin. I still have the problem.
Avatar n tn The last time it happened the whole right side of my face became numb for over a day (similar to the feeling of receiving novacaine at the dentist), the inside of my head from the ears up also felt numb-like, and I had a tightening feeling in my chest making it difficult to breathe laying down. I do avoid drinking alcohol 99% of the time, but occasionally I am not bothered by it so once in a while I will try drinking beer or wine.
Avatar n tn I have had an odd rash for several months now and it appears to be getting worse, as in, spreading. It is red, slightly raised, itches, and will get flaky white. Usually oval or round in shape. I had it on the back of my neck - looks almost like a giraffe and tanned darker. Now, it is coming around to the front on my chest. Also, I have small spots on my upper stomach right below my breasts. What is this????
Avatar n tn 3 days ago I woke up with what I thought was flea bites on my chest. (we have 3 dogs) I was wrong. Flea bites don't spread to back, tummy, arms, legs, arse, neck, tops of feet. Let's see if I can accurately describe the bumps. red, raised, most (but, not all) have what looks like a white "head" on them. they're filled with some kind of fluid, that when they pop, stings and burns for less than a minute, then don't bother me after that.
Avatar n tn I've had this rash now for about a month & I don't know what it is exactly. I got it suddenly after doing yoga at a studio & using their provided towels. I had shaved earlier that day and was sweating profusely. I used the towel mainly on my upper body (heavily on exposed arms & chest, & a little dabbing on my stomach and back) where it manifested immediately & still these areas are the most affected. The day after I had a few really itchy bumps on my arm.
Avatar m tn i have to add that this rash symptom is occuring since 4 days and 16 days after exposure
1662720 tn?1302805406 I get pink blisters that pop up on my chest when I get really stressed out.....they dont really hurt, they just itch really bad.....I scrub with rubbing alcohol and then put canfocfanic on them and they dry up and go away. What is this?
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 23 years old and everytime i eat, drink alcohol, get nervous and hot i get a rash on my neck and chest. It looks like oval rashes all over. Please advise if you know why this is caused and if there is a treatment for it?
Avatar m tn It's good to hear how well you have your life on track with your school but be more cautious with your alcohol. It sounds like you have worked very hard to get where you want to be but don't think for a minute alcohol cant get to you too. It has gotten to a lot of people who have worked harder and done better. You say you are not an alcoholic but you first got drunk when you were 14? Blacked out 10 times by the age of 21. Your posting with concerns in an alcoholism forum.
Avatar n tn 15, 2008 Herceptin every 3 weeks until June 2, 2007 Now I have developed a rash on my chest. It is not along the incision line. It itches like crazy. More of the rash is in the radiation field. I have seen 5 doctors with this rash. They aren't dure what it is. Yesterday the breast surgeon took 2 skin samples and sent them to be biopsied. Question: Has anyone else had a similar problem and how did it turn out?
Avatar f tn i have a rash which appears when im in hot conditions; a hot car, shower, direct sunlight, initially as i consume alcohol, exercising, talking to someone i dont know, under pressure etc. it appears on my neck, chest, arms legs and face, or one of these areas and eventually spreads all over, especially in sunlight, seemingly in places where the majority of sun exposure has been previously, although i rarely go out into the sun.
Avatar m tn At 6 week, I got another negative elisa test (should be 3rd generation too). At 43 days, I started checking my chest for rash, and I found a small patch of redness on my middle upper chest, just below my neck, I would say about 5cm in length and 2cm in width. It is flat and not raised, no pain, no itchiness, no irritation, infact it feels the same as normal skin. It could have been there before but i never noticed. It is still there today.
Avatar n tn As I continued the medication, the rash spread across the front of my chest, to the other side of my body and now it has spread down my arms and a little further down my stomach. The initial rash is starting to clear up somewhat and it has been about a wk since the medication stopped. But, as I have said, the rash has spread a little further down my arms and stomach. My skin feels bumpy in the areas that are affected. Almost like sandpaper.
Avatar n tn I work at a nursing home. We have had an chronic outbreak of a rash. It is scattered with single raised bumps with no pattern mostly on the arms (particularly upper), back and chest. It itches like crazy and can be especially bad when in the shower. It itches so bad it can keep you up at night.
Avatar f tn I got this rash from using facial cleansing cloths. And I get a really bad rash all over my face which then spreads down my neck and chest. I have an allergy to certain foods but have never had a reaction to a face wash. What can I do to get rid of this rash and prevent it from coming back??
Avatar f tn hey guys i was about to start treatment but ive put it off for a month due to personal reasons, about a month ago i got my hep a and b shot first one and since then ive had a ras on my chest that has spead to my arms and back it is so itchy ive also started antidepressants and i was just wondering has anyone heard of lichen planus?
Avatar m tn For the past 4 years, I have been getting a rash every March that usually lasts until May. I've been to three or four doctors and they have no idea what it is. I also have been to an allergist and am not allergic to any common foods. The rash resembles poison ivy but I have not been in contact with it. It always starts on my forearms closer to my wrist and I will have erruptions on the front of my legs and on my chest. It is usually just a few bumps in each area but it is extremely itchy.
