I have a itcy rash on my neck and the top of my hands. Why?

Allergy?: An itching rash can be a number of things but considering its locations might be from something you came in contact with. Less likely, but still possible, is eczema which is another form of itching rash. People who have asthma and/or seasonal allergies are more prone to eczema. Keep an eye out for possible triggers to help differentiate the cause of the rash: detergent, pets, poison ivy, etc. ...Read more

I have got rashes on stomach, neck and hands. Took Allegra for two days but not helped. Took Benadryl (diphenhydramine) today morning and so far same situation.

See doctor: Many things can cause a skin rash but the more common ones are viral infection and drug reaction. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) only benefits hives caused by histamine but not other rashes. If you have no other symptoms, you may wait a week and see if it disappears. If the problem persists beyond that or you start to develop other symptoms, see your doctor. ...Read more

Strep throat, prescribed amoxicillin. Then red spots on top of hand, rash along both bottom sides of arms. Doc says unlikely allergic relation. STD?

Strep throat, prescribed amoxicillin. Then red spots on top of hand, rash along both bottom sides of arms. Doc says unlikely allergic relation. STD?

Strep related: There are at least two forms of rash associated with strep. One is related to a toxin released by living strep germs, typically flat, sand papery and rosey. Anther is a hive like eruption (bumps) that can be associated with it. There are a few STD associated rashes, but what you describe is not how they appear. ...Read more

I've been taking fexofenadine for one week and I have come out with a rash all over my neck and my wrist and is now starting to spread to both hands.

Unlikely: Fexofenadine is an antihistamine and mast cell stabilizer which can help reduce an allergic reaction. Usually drug rashes appear to come from beneath the skin and all over the body rather than localized to a few areas. Discontinue the fexofenadine for now and try diphenhydramine. Also look for other sources for the rash. A new piece of jewelry perhaps! ...Read more

Putting hand sanitizer on a skin allergic rash? Rash has been present for about a month. Neck first, then upper back. Neck disappeared now slight.

Hand sanitizer on: A rash is not helpful and may even make things work. You need to find out the cause of the rash, e.g., allergy to a specific food, clothing, metal, etc. Your doc can help you w/this. Please see him or her. Avoid any lotions that contain alcohol, which is drying. ...Read more

For the last two days, I have been itching all over my body. There is no rash, but I itch on my feet, my hands, my neck and my inner thighs. I?

See a DR: Itching without visible skin changes is extremely difficult. There are hundreds of possible causes, some of them very serious. On any meds? Vitamins or supplements? Illness or any other symptoms? Ever before? You need exam, blood tests, xrays, maybe biopsies. No antihistamine helps this. Brand of laundry detergent is not of interest. It is not diet and probably not allergy. ...Read more

Was taking amoxicillin. Ended up w/ a rash on hands, feet, elbows & knees. Now it's on my neck. Breathing fine, itch driving me crazy. Had for 1 day now?

Remember this in the future and do not take Amoxicillin or penicillin. Always inform your doctors of this reaction. ...Read more

My father has a very itchy, red rash with some scabbing on bilateral hands, neck, and chest. He also has redness around both eyes. What could this be?

Dermatitis: That's great that you care enough to ask.
There are so many possibilities. Need more clarification such as how long, palms vs back of hand, occupational / recreational exposures and other history that could narrow it down. Shooting from the hip I would explore eczema and/or contact dermatitis. He can definitely be helped. ...Read more

This: This is one of those situations where "a picture is worth a thousand words"--really needs to be seen by a medical professional. Eczema is common in children and can occur on trunk and extremities. Topical moisture with heavier, cream-type moisturizers is best for eczema. If it does not resolve, it may require topical prescription medication. But a quick "eyeball" visit will clarify the issue. ...Read more
