Avatar n tn Hello, I have this recurring rash on my neck. It comes whenever my menses is to start. I was wondering if it could come from having oral herpes. Recently I have had a sore throat twice in one month two weeks apart. The rash on my neck is very painful. My doctor seems to think that it is some type of fungus. The dermatologists suggest that it is eczema. But I don't think that is the case. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn Here is a picture of a rash on my neck. I also have a rash on my left arm thats bigger. They have lasted a few weeks. I have had recurring rashes for the last few years that come and go on my arms, upper legs and inner thighs, my neck and upper chest. They don't appear directly on my genitals or my back, or at the bottom of my feet. They itch and have a slight discoloration of red. They are slightly raised non-blister bumps, and have been lasting longer the last few months.
Avatar n tn The neck pain can be due to stiff neck or torticollis but in a child with fever, stiff neck should be investigated for meningitis. Please take her to a doctor immediately. Take care!
5529196 tn?1369294482 Out of no where a rash came up on my neck which you can see in my photo. It has been there for a couple of weeks now. No blisters just a bumpy rash, nothing I have put on it has made it go away. Could this be a herpes symptom?
405370 tn?1332206110 So Amiah has quite the rash on her neck. She's going to the DR. next week, but I'm wondering if other babies have this. It doesn't bother her, but it sure looks like an allergic reaction. We've been putting Aquaphor on it...Any suggestions? Thanks!
Avatar n tn We have a 13 yr. old neighbor girl who comes to visit when our granddaughters are here. I couldn't help but notice that her neck was puffy. In between where the lines are in her neck, it is puffy. Does she have cancer or something or a thyroid problem?
Avatar f tn Symptoms of fever, poor appetite and sore throat can appear three to five days after exposure. A blister-like rash on the hands, feet and in the mouth usually develops one to two days after the initial symptoms. There is no specific treatment. Treatment is aimed at fever control and maintaining good oral hydration. Since it is a viral infection, it will disappear in a few days. However if it is a molluscum infection then it will require specific treatment for its removal. I hope it helps.
1867791 tn?1320155874 on thursday, october 27th, i noticed some itchy red bumps on the inside of my left elbow, which later spread to other areas on my arm, and to my neck, face, ears, and a little on my stomach. i went to a doctor on sunday, and was given some benadryl, and prednisolone. ive been using the medication the way i was told, and ive also been using a 2.5% hydrocortisone itch lotion, and nothing is stopping the itching or making the rash go away.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I developed a bump on the back of my neck about the size of a pea. Today its the size of a baseball and feels more like a knot with swelling around it. I've had a rash on my neck previous to this thinking it was a heat rash and I'm not sure if it's related.
Avatar m tn I had almost the same situation with you. No fever, but rash on the neck. I also have sore throat and slight diaherra (diarrhea). But my exposure is oral sex and mutal masturbation, which I got my partner's sperm on my penis. I am very worried as you are.
Avatar n tn A few days ago, I woke up with a very strange rash on my neck. There were two circles that were red, slightly raised, and very itchy. My whole neck seemed to be swollen. I have not changed the makeup I am using, and my cleanser is one that I have been using for years and I have never had a problem with it. I proceeded to see my doctor who explained that I should take a reactine or benadryl and apply a cool cloth. This helped take down the swelling and redness, but the itching still persisted.
Avatar n tn Thank you for responding. My gut says it's not an ordinary rash. Is it possible to get any other symptoms on the skin from Herpes? I'm still having a very tough time dealing with the idea that I have Herpes and I feel even more depressed now. At least when I had an outbreak on my bum, no body knew but me. I don't even want to show my husband what's on my neck. It's bad enough I feel disgusting when I have a recurrence on my bum but what could this be on my neck?
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. http://imgur.com/rEDIF.jpg http://imgur.com/qp5Za.
Avatar f tn I have a slightly red rash that's blotchy but not too noticeable that comes and goes that's located under my ears on the sides of both my neck. It seems as i have the same thing on the back of my neck on my traps. What I noticed is after I constantly use head and shoulders shampoo for a few times it goes away; when I stop using it, it comes back. Any idea what this is?
Avatar f tn Staph infections, especially MRSA infections, are very common in children in that area. She should continue to follow up with the dermatologist as needed at this point since it's not unusual for staph infections of the skin to come back repeatedly.
Avatar m tn ( im really really scared and im on vacation so i cant go to the doctor...
Avatar m tn She took a nap and when she woke up she had a red blotch streaching across her forehead. As the evening went on it went to her neck. Now it is down her back. A few red areas on her legs. Her whole forehead and neck is red. It looks like it breaks up and you see more light areas as it goes down her face and back. I did some research and it sounds like roseola. It mainly is on her face and neck not her trunk so I just needed some feedback from someone to confirm. Thank you so much!!
Avatar n tn I have had a red rash on my neck for at least 6months now. It hasn't really bothered me too much, as I tend to wear my hair down and it's not very visible and also doesn't really itch very much, hence I tend to forget about it! However, it has recently started to irritate me as it does not appear to be going away and is more visible if I tie my hair up. There is also an additional red patch at the base of my hairline at the back that I have recently noticed.
Avatar f tn s thyroiditis about 6 years ago and am taking 150mcg of synthroid. Last week I developed a rash on my lower cheeks down to my collarbone on both sides of my face and it's very itchy at times. Can this be related to the thyroid? I've noticed that my earlobes are warm all the time too.
Avatar n tn It is best that your child be isolated from other children at home. Most rash in children are viral in origin. Adequate rest, plenty of water intake and good ventilation will be able to help.
Avatar f tn My baby has that on occasion when he's too hot. I just put neosporin on it & it goes away.
Avatar n tn I noticed on my neck that a rash appeared which looks like folluculitis. Obviously this has got me extremely worried. My test for everything has came back negative but am still convinced i have contracted HIV as i obviously have to get tested after 3 months. I have also had a few night sweats which i know is another symptom altho this could also be because of anxiety!
Avatar m tn then after one day of reassurance from my endocrinologist i started having a severe rash, migratory urticarial in nature, itchy, involving the small joints of the hands and the neck with elements of conjunctivitis. i was admitted, stopped all treatment and given IV steroids and chlorpheniramine which resolved the rash in about 3 days.
Avatar n tn I have had a rash like small hives around the neck and upper chest, very itchy I have gone to the doctor several times and have gotten steroid injections and have only helped for a week and then its back, currently he put me on Predisone 40 mg and have tappered to 5mg and now the rash is back. It seems to surface at night and I noticed that I am real sweaty at night not to mention very itchy. I do have Rheumtoid Arthritis. Could there be a connection?
