Eczema on the neck

Common Questions and Answers about Eczema on the neck


Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be eczema skin. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used, whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid. Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin.
Avatar n tn This is from a chemical peel on my face neck and chest. I realize the dangers of using too much of this ointment for a period of time, but if I can use it on my face would it work?
Avatar n tn It started on my arms then moved to my stomach and back. Now it's on my neck coming towards my face. I went to the emergency room and seen a doctor. The doctor said it was a form of dermititus. They gave me some medication. Some pills for the itching, and then a antibiotic to speed the process of it going away.For some reason it is still here and itchy as ever. I dont know what to do please someone give me advise!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn Hi I have a severe case of eczema. I flare up extremely bad on face and neck in the winter. Also when I sweat excessively I itch. Is there any help or products I could use to keep me from looking like a frosted flake in the winter months?
395795 tn?1215116490 My little guy has this on his cheeks. His doctor said to use Lubriderm or Aveeno lotion several times per day. We use Lubriderm, which really helps as long as we keep up with it.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. With a past history which is positive for eczema, the most likely cause for the rash could be eczema again. People who suffer from this disorder should avoid contact with triggering factors like soaps, cosmetics, jewelry, clothing, and detergents. Sometimes sweat, changes in temperature and psychological stress are known to trigger these episodes. So, the best way to prevent attacks is to identify those substances which you are allergic to and avoid them.
6333619 tn?1386601982 Some people say it may itch more when you nervous or worried about something but when I was younger it was always a problem w/ me just keep my hands clean.. for me unfortunately I had it just about EVERYWHERE! It was on my arms, hands, underarms, neck, stomach & also behind my knee caps. I never really completely got rid of it, it just goes away for awhile as long as I keep my body clean & moisturized..
326352 tn?1310997895 has worked well for now Mupricin (for staph) Clotrimzole and Betamethasone Diproprionate -- using for yeast with eczema spots on neck and diaper area Atarax (oral med) for itchies OTC: Freederm (did not work well) Tide Free Cetaphil Eucerin Cream (my preference and hers) Eucerin for Itchy Skin (awful when the skin is open) Cetaphil lotion/cream Aquaphor So, what has anyone else used and to what success or failure?
Avatar n tn How bad does my eczema have to be to get discharged from the army. It started on my neck but it spread to my eyelids.
Avatar n tn ) I have good days and bad days. The worst part right now is that I got eczema on the back of my neck, but the Elidel isn't helping! Oh, I also take Omega-3 Fatty Acids (odorless!) and it also helps.
200558 tn?1189759425 Bad flaking of the scalp, along the hairline on my neck and forehead, behind the ears, and around my eyes. It was embarrassing to go out in public the flaking was so bad. My doctor diagnosed the condition as eczema and prescribed a 10-day program of prednisone, starting with 60 Mb/day reducing to 20 Mg/day plus cortisone-valerate 2 percent creme. By the end of the prednisone routine last week my problem had cleared up and I was home free -- I thought.
Avatar f tn It says you can't use it on the neck but if I'm prescribed Bethamethasone, surely I can use Hydrocortisone which is much weaker.

This usually occurs during the winter months and i would like to know ways of having this treated..what would be the best medication for this type of eczema?
Avatar f tn i was recently introduced to meleleuca products,n they are fantastic! it got rid of all the eczema rash,uses the pure oil,then the RENEW lotion,it is the best thing ive uses so far,it doesnt thin the skin out klike most cortisone creams the doc usually prescribes,my question is this...although the rash n itch has gone away,the awful pimple like blisters have not,does anyone know what i could use to rid of it?
Avatar f tn A few months prior to that, my 16 month old son was diagnosed with Eczema and the doctor just told me to use the over the counter Eczema cream for babies. So, when this same rash appeared on my daugther, I used this cream, but it continued to get worse. At her appointment last week, the doctor said that it probably started as an irriation from something or contact dermititis. He said at this point, it has turned into an Eczema like rash. What does that mean? Does she have it or not?
Avatar n tn A few months ago I also noticed a number of small hard bumps on the back of my neck. I also develop redness next to my eyes at times. I have seen two doctors and both said that it is nothing to worry about, as they were unable to see the rash on my penis. However, the last doctor I saw had me tested for a series of STD's, all of which were negative. He prescribed me the scabies medicine as well as a strong cream for eczema, neither worked.
Avatar m tn It tends to occur on areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as under the breasts, on the inner thighs, and under the arms. Tiny red spots with itching and pricking sensation are the characteristic appearance of this rash. 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.
Avatar m tn Other possibilities are candidiasis, fungal infections, parasitic infestations like scabies etc. In herpes there is a cluster of vesicles on a red base. In moist areas like the vagina it may cause ulcerations. Consult a dermatologist for a better evaluation. Do keep us posted. Best of luck and regards!
Avatar n tn My child has worsening itching, dryness and redness around her inner knees and elbows, with additional patches around her thighs, armpits and neck areas due to her eczema. I put moisturizers (aveeno) and hydrocortisone, but it just doesn't work. I have seen my friend's kid use prescription steriod ointments (i.e.desonide) and it seems to help, but what are the long term side effects?
Avatar m tn The tighter my clothing the worse it is! Well I am going to save the other big points I have for the hash out, Come on proffessionals. Come and try to make this wrong. You will not win. Signed The only man with guts enough to bring this out!
Avatar f tn I have asthma, but the real reason my doctors put me on it was for my very serious eczema. Even though Xolair is not officially approved for this, my amazing doctors went out on a limb and got me approved. It has changed my life. I went about 4 years without a serious flare up and am only having one now (in my opinion) because I moved across country and have been reacting to the stress of that (move, quitting job, new allergens, etc.).
495402 tn?1220621003 Looks like I've got eczema on the back of my head and my upper neck, my doctor told me yesterday that it's most likely a side effect from the Hep C medication, which is all well and good but how to I get rid of it. Where it's on my scalp, under my hair, I can't put any type of ointment on it. Last night my boyfriend put some of his eczema salve on my neck and it did seem to stop the itching for a little while.
Avatar m tn The dry patches on my hands are located between the thumb and the index finger and it feels dry ,rough,Itchy and on some occasion it burns and then once it feels burn the area that is burning Turns red. The same Applies to the neck but the neck does not bother as much as the ones on my hands But instead the neck looks purple ish but it looks similar to a hickey but it feel dry and is very wide ..
Avatar n tn Hi, The neck rash could be due to several causes. You would need to see a skin specialist to rule out eczema, sweat dermatitis, heat rash, acne, folliculitis, impetigo, tinea, even lupus, etc. You could take some oral antihistamine or antiallergic medications like loratadine or cetrizine and see if it helps with your symptoms. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions to help soothe the itching. What other symptoms are you having? Since when have you noticed the lesions?
Avatar n tn allergic reaction, irritation, dermatitis or eczema,infection, acne or folliculitits. Are there other signs or symptoms present? In particular, eczema may present with itchy, reddened, dry skin. Allergies, stress, irritants, and genetic factors are all believed to be related to the development of this condition. It would be best to have this evaluated by your doctor for proper management. A cpomplete medical and physical examination is needed to reach a clinical diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't use steroids if I were you. The doctors prescribe them, but the people that deal with eczema on a daily basis don't use them. They make it much worse in the long run. Eczema will pop up occasionally, it is becoming more of a problem. Just look at this board. Thousands of adults that never had any skin problems are now afflicted with this horrible disease. Yet the dermatologist claim that less then 10% of adults are affected.
Avatar m tn I have had a mysterious rash on my neck for 2 years. I do not believe it to be eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis. I have used several eczema and dermatitis medicines, but to no avail. It is sort of silvery, but not as silvery as it would be if it was psoriasis. It comes and goes like hives, but it is not hives. The skin is rough, scaley, and flakey. It is sometimes red, sometimes pink, and sometimes dark red, There a small bumps too, but they can only be seen with a magnifying glass.
Avatar f tn I had a burning scaling some times weeping rash appear on the back of my neck I've had it for about 3 weeks docs don't seem to know any ideas
Avatar n tn I've had this red ring on my neck for a few weeks now, it doesn't hurt or itch. I feel healthy otherwise. The skin feels normal and isn't rough or painful. It sort of looks like a hickey.
Avatar m tn Am I at any risk with my hands or if I rubbed my eyes after picking up the bottles. (I did not notice any blood on the bottles) After reading some other postings I normally would not be worried but in the last 2 weeks, i have had sore through/swollen glands in neck/ a few episodes of Diarhea/ Fatigue. I believe the sore throat has been from a stuffy nose which I know is not commonly related to ARS. But I have not felt myself for over a week, stiff neck, some muscle aches.
