I developed a severe itchiness on my face cheek, jawline, lips, neck and forehead. Went to the doctor and their anti-itch cream didn't help at all.

How to get rid of rashes on side of neck? Have it for 5 months now, and have tried some creams and they haven't worked. Please someone help me!!

Rashes: Knowing what the rash is and it's cause is helpful in both selecting the correct treatment and how to prevent reoccurrence. Absent that a few reasonable things to try would be: 1% Hydrocortisone cream, organic unrefined coconut oil, lavender essential oil All of these are over the counter and available at a health store. If these fail consult a physician. ...Read more

Tiny raised bumps on my forehead and neck, little itching. My trunk and back look like a small heat rash typically at night. Is this hives?

Tiny raised bumps on my forehead and neck, little itching. My trunk and back look like a small heat rash typically at night. Is this hives?

Hives: A hive lesion does not last for more than 24 hours. If those raised itchy bumps on your skin move from one place to another within a day, they sound like hives. When you don't have lung or GI symptoms, simple otc antihistamine would help in most cases. If you have hives more than 6 weeks, you need to see a physician to be evaluated for chronic hives or chronic urticaria. ...Read more

In your case it sounds like irritant contact dermatitis, a form of allergic reaction to the medication. Stop using it. See your dermatologist for alternative medications. ...Read more
