Avatar n tn I have a small area on my back, maybe the size of a babies hand that is pinkish and looks like sunburn.... is this consistent with ARS rash?
Avatar n tn I began to get a strange sunburn like rash around my neck only a few months ago (it has now gotten worse). It feels very systemic. It is not a typical rash. It is not raised. There are no bumps or scaliness. I posted in the thyroid forum because I am having thyroid issues and wondered if it could be related but my endocrinologist doesn't seem to think so (of course doctors are notorious for missing things that can be obvious). It's only around my neck and it's making me miserable.
Avatar f tn my daughter had a rash that was like that and was also not eating or sleeping well and i forget the exact name for it but it is basically caused by a viral infection and it just has to run it's course but i would take him to the dr to make sure.
Avatar f tn I have a rash that looks like scratches and keeps spreading. Itches sometimes but not always. What is it? http://i63.tinypic.com/212iidt.
Avatar f tn Two days ago I noticed a bright red rash that looks like sunburn all over my body (not my face). It hurt to the touch. It has since gone away mostly (no redness) but now I am extremely itchy. I don't have a fever but I have a headache, some nausea, body aches and pains (especially in shoulders, jaw, and lower back) and fatigue. I just don't feel right and I am having a hard time concentrating or focusing on studying (I'm a full time student). The itchy is driving me insane!
Avatar f tn - the butterfly rash, when I try to google it it looks very extreme. Does anyone know of a source of less extreme or maybe it doesn’t work like that? Can it be more faint?

Avatar n tn I have a very itchy rash that looks like ringworms. It goes away and comes back but only on my arms. When the sun shines on it, it burns like a sunburn. I have been to several doctors and have taken numerous medicines. No one knows what it is. It could be this, it could be that. PLEASE HELP!!!! The itching is driving me crazy.
Avatar n tn Have been on Lamictal one year, then all of the sudden this sunburn rash started on the back of my neck and then chest, and now full body. Dry, red skin, itchy, hot and tender like a sunburn. I was out in the sun without a shirt for about 30 minutes the day before the rash started. Has been 2 weeks now, and still have it. At first my doctors did not believe it was the Lamictal since I had been on it for one year already.
Avatar n tn For two years now, I have suffered from a rash on my chest. It looks like a sunburn, and it burns and itches. The rash comes and goes. Could this rash be related to Lupus? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I've been to a dermatologist, that's who told me that I had tinea versicolor. But it doesn't seem to respond to any of the medication that has been given to me. The ointments don't make the tinea go away, they just make me break out. The rash, especially on my chest, just looks like I've gotten a sunburn through the neckline of my outfit. Except that it doesn't ever go away. It's not the red of a fresh sunburn but the dull red of a days old sunburn.
Avatar n tn Could nodules or goiter cause a sunburn like rash around the neck? They also found that my Vitamin D level is 8 so that concerned them and they are giving me Vitamin D 50,000 IU's each week for a month to start. Could the low level of D cause this odd type of rash? I am at my wits end because this rash seemed to come on strong before my period and leave but now it just stays all the time. We checked all my other hormones and they are normal (not near Menopause or anything)..

Avatar m tn I had a severe allergic reaction. Broke out in hives and while in the shower my tongue started swelling. Took Benadryl ASAP and the symptoms started going away. The next day I had a bright red ring around my abdomen. It looks like a severe sunburn and it very itchy. I've had two cortisone shots with no relief. I just started a new job and have no insurance for a few more weeks so have been going to a clinic but I'm starting to get worried this thing isn't going away.
Avatar n tn 50 mcg for the past 5 years daily. About 4 months ago I began to get this strange, itchy, sunburn like rash down the sides of my neck that has now spread to my entire neck area. It seems to grow stronger near my period and then it wanes only now it appears to be here to stay. I have not made any changes to what I eat, wear or exposures to anything new. The rash is nowhere else.
Avatar n tn 3 days after taking the cortisol manager, I developed a red rash that looks and feels like a sunburn on my legs. could the cortisol manager be the problem?
Avatar f tn Next day same thing but spots darker red on belly, back and neck, and looks a lot like a sunburn on face arms..feels like it too (radiating heat, sensitive to touch). Havent been in the sun. Ive been taking lamotrigine for about 2 weeks and I know its associated with some serious rashes. Went to GP when the rash wasnt this bad and she said its probably something viral and possibly the medication, talk to the person who prescribed the lamotrgine.
Avatar f tn I have a rash on my hand that looks like a burn or a scrap. It doesn't itch or burn. It actually looks like a scab. I thought it might be shingles, but I looked up the symptoms and pictures of shingles, and my symptoms don't match and the pictures I seen don't look anything like what I have. I also looked up scabies, and that doesn't match either. Does anyone have any idea what this might be?
Avatar f tn just looks like sunburn, reddening of the skin and has no other characteristics than it feeling hot, like sunburn. in some cases it can appear and disappear in 10 minutes depending on the situation im in, other times it takes a little longer to disappear. i have tried to search many skin conditions on the internet but can not find anything which matches, as no other symptoms persist. hopefully this helps.
Avatar m tn Since yesterday my deltoids and half of my chest is red, it looks like a sunburn but I havn't been exposed to sun. Yesterday I used a corticoids ointment and it went away but came again, today after a cold shower it went away again but its slowly coming back. It doesn't itch at all but it has a small burning sensation (just like when you get sun burned) I havn't used any new shampoo or ate anything different from usual. I'm totally lost, what do you think this might be?
Avatar n tn I started getting spots on my chin about 2 years ago, around the age of 30, and my doctor prescribed Duac Once Gel. The gel seemed to work (although it did make my skin dry). However, for the past year or so I have been developing a strange rash on my forehead which seems to come and go. The rash isn't itchy at all. It is like raised bumps all over my forehead and the skin appears greasy. The bums are generally skin coloured, not red.
