When I shave the area under my chin and neck have always gotten red. How can I make it stop and go away?

Shaving irritation: Depends. If you are using a regular shaving blade, perhaps try a sensitive skin one. Or try using electric shaver most of the time and when using regular shaving blade, do not shave against the grain to try to get a cleaner shave, as this can cause irritation. Also you may consider a beard to give your skin a rest from shaving. ...Read more

I have an itchy red swollen area under the chin, on the jawline and on my neck. The doctor gave prednisone. Won't this make it hard for me to heal? If this is yeast, couldprednisone be dangerous?

No: Few days of Prednisone would not affect the healing, but help with the itching and help with healing. The rash you describe is not yeast, therefore it would not be dangerous at all. If it is yeast, your rash would still be there, it may spread but would not be dangerous since it it just a few days. ...Read more

I get rashes on my neck and chin. They are not bright red though it kind of is a dark pigment color and they go away sometimes and then come back.?

Rash comes and goes: Hello Anna, you have opened a real can of worms because a rash could be almost anything. It also helps to tell if it comes after exposure to something, does it itch and what makes it go away. But without knowing much detail I can say it could be allergic, acne, solar dermatis or related to hormones. I would see a dermatologist and have a little more detail for a better answer. Good luck :) ...Read more

You: You are probably experiencing enlarged lymph nodes. This occurs when your body is fighting off an infectious process. The lymph nodes are increasing in size because they are producing white blood cells which help fight off infection. They usually decrease in size in about 4-8 weeks. However you should still have your doctor examine you to make sure this is in fact the cause, and to treat any infections that are present.
All the best. ...Read more

Topical irritants / allergens may be found in soaps, detergents, anything you apply to your skin. Are you using a sunscreen? This could trigger the reaction.

I used to chew but not anymore. My neck yesterday has gotten thicker from right under my chin to the middle of my neck. Should I be concerned?

Not cancer: Typically chewing tobacco can lead to mouth/throat cancer, but that doesn't happen for years and when it does it happens very slowly, so this is not likely to be cancer. That said, you could still have a viral or bacterial infection if it is hurting or you are having a sore throat, but this is unlikely related to your chewing history. ...Read more
