What is the most likely cause of a left side swollen painful clavical with a non itchy red rash?

Shingles: Shingles (herpes zoster) is a painful, blistering skin rash due to the varicella-zoster virus, the virus that causes chickenpox. After you get chickenpox, the virus remains inactive (becomes dormant) in certain nerves in the body. Shingles occurs after the virus becomes active again in these nerves years later. See your doctor for treatment. ...Read more

Hard to say: From the short description, it is hard to say. But, the location and the presence of itching suggests a contact dermatitis--an immune reaction to something that is touching your skin. This can be due to the metals in necklaces, detergents or starch in your shirt collar, or a number of different things. See an allergist or a dermatologist for a better evaluation. ...Read more

What can cause itchy collarbone? I've had this problem on and off for years.

Collar bone: I doubt it is your collar bone itself. However the area of the collar bone can get moist for some people. Moist areas can get itchy and even a fungal infection. Keep the area clean and dry and see if that helps. You may want to try and over the counter anti-fungal. See you doctor or a dermatologist if the problem persists. ...Read more

I noticed a lump at the end of my rt clavicle where it meets my sternum. I noticed it because the area has been itchy all day.

Lump at sternum: May be a bite, allergic reaction of unclear origin, bump due to itching , itching from prickly heat, ringworm w/ itching (fungus) but also must consider lesions in the lung/breast, check CXR, mammogram. Rarely liver conditions can cause itching (and the bump from itching) but most have known liver disease. Would try topical steroid/ antifungal . F/u/ w/ doc ...Read more

Hard knots in both clavicles red itchy skin flu like symptoms but no flu or injury getting bigger?

See a doctor: With flu like symptoms and a rash, I would seek urgent evaluation. I would at least call your doctor or go to an Urgent Care center. When you say 'flu like' -those symptoms can include fever--so that is what has raised my alarm. There must be more to your history to help figure this out. Because symptoms seem to be progressing I would not waste time. ...Read more

Help. Just broke out in rash of 3 itchy raised bumps under sportsbra over collarbone. Bug bite? Shingles? (had one outbreak on back in 2003)

Itching raised rash: Localized itchy rashes suggest a local effect - exposure to the skin by an irritant or allergen, or insect bites. A metal clasp on a bra strap can cause a contact dermatitis. Poison oak or ivy, or other allergens possible. Shingles expands from an initial patch to a larger area of rash that does not cross over the midline, and is painful/sensitive. Topical steroids unless shingles(acyclovir helps). ...Read more
