280369 tn?1316705641 Sounds more like a heat rash. When you get chicken pox, they start as little red bumps, but quickly fill in with fluid and then pop, creating a scab. VERY itchy too, if you recall when you had them. You would probably know in the next day if it is chicken pox by the change in the spots. As for you, it shouldn't be a problem if you already had the chicken pox.
Avatar m tn However, it seems from your description that the lesions might be some kind of allergic eruptions, milia, heat rash, skin infections / contact dermatitis. Hives are usually allergic caused by food and insect stings also besides medication or cosmetics. Sometimes they may also be due to infections, heat, cold or stress ((emotional / physical). Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.
Avatar f tn My little sister was sleeping and woke up with a rash all over her back, shoulders, arms, and neck. She said she felt hot and that her back was wet when she woke up. What is it? Is this dangerous? What do you recommend we use?
Avatar f tn The dermatologist can give you stronger medicine, but I can usually control it with cortizone cream. The reason the rash tends to stay on your arms and legs is from the heat/sweating in those areas. Cotton clothing breathes the best.
Avatar n tn I have been to an internal medicine, Derm, and allergist and no one can figure out what is going on with me. I had an outbreak of a pimple/blister like rash all over my arm and legs. I was put on a heavy dose of prednisone starting at 40mg then 60mg next round, steroid cream, benadryl, sarin lotion. Finally after months it went away. It now is back and on my neck and spreading on my cheeck and chest. Im going through the whole routine again but nothing is helping.
689528 tn?1364139441 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. I haven't used anything different soap wise, detergent or shampoo. What the heck?? Anyone know if Benadryl is safe to take? I think I'm gonna dab myself in calamine lotion before work later!! :( This girl is giving me a real taste of a bad pregnancy I tell ya!!
3202871 tn?1352133377 As you can see below, about 1/3 of the patients treating with Inf/Riba alone did still experience the rash. I was unfortunately one of them. Heat and sweating were the main triggers so do your best to stay cool. But it was managable with hydrocortizone and otc antihistamines. As eric mentioned above, many used hydroxyzine (atarax) to successfully control the more severe rash.
97615 tn?1212682189 but on top of that I have chronic hives..which is whole another story. i think the heat rash it some sort of hives actually....i've had the form you have all my life. it's just how your body is built. i have pretty sensitive skin and just driving in the heat brings out red blotchy on my chest. when i take really hot showers i get them where my skin is thin. if your itchiness is really bad try putting really thick lotion on. i know it's frustrating to hear that you have to live with it...
Avatar f tn I have POTS too the heat can its issues with me as well. I do have a cooling vest myself and I am an adult. Your son can get prescription for one and have written in his IEP (individual Education Plan) that he can wear it. Also may help if you look into possible weekly IV saline infusions if he is symptomatic. I have found it helpful for me and I get year round. I get 2 liters weekly. Some medications may be helpful. Two good sites to look into for more information is www.
Avatar n tn What exactly do you look for when reading package labels for protein concentrations. I too have the neck rash and terrible heat symptoms. Does anyone else have a problem using different soaps?
Avatar n tn For about 2 weeks, several times a day, I feel heat starting to form on the outer side of my right leg. But I have no rash and my skin does not feel hot to the touch. Please someone help us figure out what is going on.

Avatar f tn My daughter has had a rash that just wont go away.. Sometimes the bumbs are skin colored and othertimes like when shes wet or in the heat they are red.. The bumps are everywhere and not itchy, they dont really seem to bother her, but the look of this rash looks awful! literally from her neck to her feet and some overlap. I have been to the pediatrician and all they can say is they have never seen anything like it and think its viral..
Avatar n tn Your rash could be the result many causes such as irritation, dermatitis (atopic, contact, and allergic), hives or insect bites, heat rash, excessive sweating, folliculitis or some medical condition like SLE. The diagnosis would be based on the presence of any accompanying symptoms such as fever, pain, swelling, itching or any rashes/swelling in other parts of the body? Sometimes use of any new soaps, perfumes etc can result in an allergic reaction?
Avatar f tn It would go away when the environment was cool and flare up when it got too hot. So I would think of it as a heat rash. This year, however, a huge patch of the rash appeared on both my cheeks. It appeared in February and now its September. I've tried everything to get rid of it but it just won't go away. Its like it's permanent. It doesn't scratch or burn and it only gets irritated if I try to pop the tiny bumps. To me the rash looks as though my pores turned into buttons.
Avatar m tn She's noticed that it gets worse whenever her hands come in contact with water or whenever there's something that traps heat/humidity. She says they are very itchy and when she scratches them too much the water pustules break open. When the water comes out she says that it dries into little ring like circles.
Avatar n tn A couple days later I noticed this itchy rash on my inside forearm. IT looks like a scratch and under it looks like a circular raised red area. no nlisters or anything, just like hives or something. Then I noticed that a smaller one appeared on my side up near my breast. I thought that it was poison ivy or somthing so I started to put some ointment that my sons dr gave him a month ago on it.
Avatar n tn I only developed this about 2 months ago when it started as bumps on my fingers and knuckles and dismissed it as a heat rash that I get every so often. I've gone to the Doctors twice about it and he can't diagnose what it actually is, he just gives me steroid creams to apply thinly 3 times a day. Not only does it look horrible it is very uncomfortable and at my wits end with what to do about it.
Avatar f tn It just means that your thyroid hormones are not regulated. The rash is VERY itchy and it spreads. Heat makes it worse. My doctor perscribed an anti fungal cream. It worked great at first, but now, not so much. I am going to ask my doctor to put me on armour, an older thyroid medicine that Oprah takes, and hopefully it will work better than Synthroid. I'll keep you posted.
1063463 tn?1302278219 my cold rash is hives like i took medicine that I am allergic to....I do not have and pressure rash etc. The sun rash just started this year but it is very annoying because I love the sun. I am a shut in in the winter because the hives get really bad the more exposure that I have to the cold and now this rash in the summer is not leaving many options. I also get very sick in the sun. All of my symptoms are exaserbated 100 times.
Avatar n tn They are red and some are irregular shaped, and have a patchy texture and light brown discoloration to them. Others appear as if it was simply heat rash. Astringents seem to alleviate itching temporarily. I am allergic to nothing. My stress levels have been very high the past several months, but that is nothing new for a single mom. My worry is this may be contagious. I don't want my daughter getting this. Secondary worry is stress on heart muscles caused by some inflamatory conditions.
Avatar m tn Man, sorry to hear of the rash, *believe me* I empathize with you. Although it certainly sounds like you hit the derm-doctor jackpot! Sounds absolutely perfect and that you're in the best hands possible. I wish my doctors had actually experienced HCV and had gone through biopsies and treatment (not that I'd wish it on them of course!). I'm positive my standard of care would be much better. Anyway, sounds like you should be feeling better real soon.
Avatar n tn Ive had this problem for probably a year now the rash came put of no where when i swam in a lake at first i heard it was bacteria from goose crap and it stays in your skin then i heard it was scabies and its not then i heared it was gluten intollerance heat rash etc etc im going to try these things i can go to a doctor dont have the money or health insurance atm but i am a coffee drinker and i could loose a little weight idk if my weight gain after a baby had something to do with it or my eating
Avatar n tn in an area above the inside of my right ankle - several times/day for the last month. There is no swelling and when I feel the heat sensation, I don't feel that heat with my hand. There seems to be no difference the the amount whether sitting, standing or lying down. Of course, I worry about blood clots.
Avatar n tn The problem hurts more in extreme heat, cold. I have been tested already for STD's. I have taken medicine for a bladder infection, a fungal cream, and a yeast infection, and none have helped. If anyone has any advice, please respond. I will try anything to make it better.
Avatar n tn This could in fact be anything from insect / bug bites, dermatitis, heat rash, allergic reactions or eczema. You could apply calamine lotion at the sites, keep the area well moisturized and wash the sites frequently. Avoidance of sun exposure would help too. It would be best to consult a specialist - a skin specialist or a pediatrician if her lesions still persist and get a proper clinical examination for a confirmed diagnosis.
