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

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

I have an itchy, painful rash on my collarbone, extending up both sides of my neck. Ent doc n reg doc doesn't know why I have it. What could cause it?

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

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read more

What would cause an itchy, painful rash over collar bone?

Plant juice, maybe: There are several things that could cause such a rash, especially if the rash is only on one side, not both sides. Shingles is a possibility. I'd expect clusters of small blisters to develop in that case. A contact rash from a plant or chemical, either alone or combined with sun exposure could cause this.
