Avatar n tn Hi Your rash could be caused directly or indirectly by stress, allergic reactions (hives) heat or sun exposure, bacterial, viral or fungal infections, underlying medical illness or medications. Skin rashes are diagnosed clinically based on the history and appearance of the rash. You should consult a dermatologist so that he finds the exact cause and gives you medications to treat the underlying cause.

4950316 tn?1394188185 Only 5 days in on triple tx, with Incivo (incideous I call it), and I'm getting rashes inside my arms etc. As my nurse says it's too early for the Incivo rash, is this a Ribo rash? If so, do they last the length of the treatment, or come and go? And when may I expect the Incivo rash to come a knocking (IF it is!)? Also, you talk about Tylenol, which here is Australia it is Paracetamol, is this without codeine?
Avatar m tn hi, i am 15 years old, and i get rashes on my skin if scratched. It usually comes as lines and i can write on my skin using my fingernails. also my body becomes itchy.The dermatologist says that it will be there for a maximum of 2 years and go away. I have been taken pills to decrease the itchiness, which was given by the dermatologist. however these rashes will occur still.
Avatar m tn I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.
Avatar n tn Stress often causes several body changes. Skin can be one of them. 'Satellite' type (round) patches are often a sign of either a fungal infection or eczema (could be a number of other things as well)(itching could indicate eczema). Depending on the cause, (fungal, ecz, bact.) there are a number of treatments. For one, try showering with cooler water, keeping the areas clean (try cleaning with hibiclens).
Avatar f tn For two years I have suffered from a skin rash which mimics scabies. I have had various tests including biopsies. The rash now covers my entire body and itches a lot. For many years Ihave been on thyroid medication for nodules on my thyroid. Could the rash be related to my thyroid?

Avatar m tn anxiety when you it comes to itchiness and rashes on the skin? I have been extremely anxious and stressed out over a penis irritation and the symptoms have been coming and going for almost 10 weeks. Could my stress & anxiety be prolonging this irritation? Can stress & anxiety create skin problems or at the very least, make existing issues worse?
Avatar f tn For about five years now I have suffered from abdominal pain, bloating, spasms, fatigue and skin rashes. The gastrointestinologist diagnosed me with IBS. I have tried high fiber diets, herbs, acupuncture all of which offered some relief but never got rid of the symptoms. I don't have the energy I used to and lifting and stretching seem to make the pain and bloating worse.
Avatar f tn I know how that is!
Avatar f tn Dermatographism can be caused by stress, tight or abrasive clothing, watches, glasses, energetic kissing, heat, cold, or anything that causes stress to the skin. It can be treated by antihistamines or cromoglicate and sometimes steroids, as they prevent the histamine from causing the reaction. As the underlying cause of dermographism is not known, it can last for many years without relief. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn The course you describe is not compatible with pityriasis rosea, although it may have looked like that to begin with. Some viral rashes result in peeling of the skin on the palms and soles, so that's a possibility. I'm not sure, however, how to interpret the persistence of both new areas and older white spots. I suspect that all this will turn out to be something in the eczema family (that can affect hands and feet too.
Avatar m tn Docs said, skin rashes may go by age 15 - 16. She still has skin rashes, which sometimes go and sometimes come.
Avatar f tn I have been to a doctor, allergist, and a couple of dermatologists and none of them were able to tell me why I am getting these rashes. I even got a skin biopsy done but results came out as inconclusive. The rash starts out as a tiny red dot that itches terribly and the more I scratch the bigger it gets and spreads. When it spreads it turns into hives and it becomes really hard not to scratch or rub the area. When it goes away, it doesn't fully go away and I am left with a flat brown mark.
Avatar m tn My wife suffers from a severe condition since she was a little child. Skin rashes that come and go, on her arm, legs, face, all over her body. They are red, ich a lot and and the skin peels off like it was dust. We have spent all the money possible (and impossible) to figure this out. We've been to all sorts of doctors, who have suggested many different causes such as food allergies (lactose, gluten, fruits and the list goes on...), psychological problems, stress, fungus...
1038715 tn?1274311044 God bless all. A stress rash or hives on the skin can develop when a person is under stress. Whether stress or anxiety has this effect on an individual depends on many factors and no two people will react the same. Stress and especially constant daily stress affects the health of individuals in many ways. Often health problems are difficult to link directly to stress, but without a doubt, it does play a role in poor health. Heart problems, high blood pressure, mental disorders, etc.
Avatar f tn i'll clench my teeth for example while stressed and get a headache as a result. Are these rashes related to stress or is it pure coincidence? if it is stress related, how do i manage this? These rashes are painful and embarrassing,and i don't expect the stress to subside anytime soon (i'm in my 2nd yr of college). Thank you so much!
Avatar n tn Vitiligo also causes pale, white patches to develop on the skin. This is because that particular area of skin has little or none of a type of pigment called melanin.It is also found mainly on sun exposed areas. In my opinion,a consultation of a dermatologist will be the best as treatment modalities for both are different. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn Hi There is a common skin condition called hives or urticaria, which causes red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin. Hives can occur anywhere on the body such as the trunk, arms, and legs. Hives are usually allergic (food, medication, cosmetics and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found. Most cases are mild and resolve on their own. They usually go away on their own.
Avatar n tn hii,i am 21yrs old female.i have rashes on my face and i have been to dermatologist many a time,he suggested me some medicines and cream lke ketoconazole ,azirab etc.but the effect of all these medicines was in vein .I have this fashes from the last 6 monthes on my entire face.first they were on my forehead and chin,and now they have spread on my entire face giving a ugly look to it.
Avatar f tn What you need to do is to find out the cause, which can be best established under a good medical supervision. Plus, one very important and (in your case, significant) factor is stress. Stress always hampers a steady recovery and on the top of it, it worsens the skin (and other) disorders due to hormonal changes that we can't really make out. So, the first thing to do is try to pacify your mind, some positivity and stuff.
Avatar m tn After that the itching went away and the skin was slightly dry and I could peel off the dead skin. But I also had some redish marks on my toes and outside of my foot. My second unprotected exposure lead me to massive stress/anxiety filled research on the internet. During this time I developed full body rash that looked like a sunburn.
Avatar n tn Hello, From your symptoms eczema and psoriasis are important to be ruled out. Eczema is a skin disorder which is experienced as inflammation of the outermost layer of the skin. The causes are- allergy to soaps, detergents, dust, smoke, medications, sweat and some food. Eczema around eyes can be because of extreme changes in temperature and psychological changes in a person due to stress and anxiety. Boosting your immunity can help in faster recovery.
