Red rash looks like sunburn

Common Questions and Answers about Red rash looks like sunburn


Avatar f tn Hi everyone I went out 2 nights ago and woke up in the morning with a rash that is about half the size of an A4 piece of paper. It looks like a sunburn, but not too red. It doesn't hurt to touch although the area feels tender on the inside. The area is slightly swollen and occasionally it aches in that area. Today, I have felt really weak all day and my left arm is sore, and i can taste metal in my mouth sometimes. I'm not too concerned with the pains today because maybe i slept badly.
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 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 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 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 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 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 f tn He has put me on 3 different meds. NONE of which have worked. This rash feel like Im burning like sunburn but it comes and goes.

Avatar f tn s tonsils and they were swollen and the rash had continued to spread and started to look like a bad sunburn. He was also getting red streaks at the folds of his arms, legs, and neck. He is now on antibiotics for 10 days.
Avatar n tn It looks like he was clawed and it will be red, the clawed like areas are raised. this is usually on his back and sides. Sometimes looks almost cut along underwear line. Then it can spread and he will have red areas on his face, arms, neck and stomach. Sometimes will small bumps. It itches him and sometimes burns a bit. Benedryl helps. What is the hell is this??? It started several weeks ago. Just randomly gets it.

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 m tn Dr., For over the past two weeks, I have had a flat, red rash that appears like a sunburn on my face and particulary the neck. When I am in the sun or heat, it increases in itchiness and burning. A few days before the rash started, I had finished my second five-day course of 750mg Amoxicillin for dental work. Also, a few days (3 or 4) before the rash started, I had a very brief (3 seconds or so) unprotected oral sex exposure of which I was the recipient (I am male, received from female).
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?
