Injury from tree between neck and shoulder, severe pain, stiff neck, red itchy rash burns when touched and swollen lymph nodes? Been to chiropractor

Injury from tree between neck and shoulder, severe pain, stiff neck, red itchy rash burns when touched and swollen lymph nodes? Been to chiropractor

See a physician: Nothing against chiropractors but the rash and lymph nodes are not in their field of expertise and should be evaluated by a physician. If the chiropractor has been unable to help with the neck and shoulder discomfort I would take any imaging he/she has done and seek an opinion for an orthopedic doctor. Could be just soft tissue injury or maybe a small fracture. Please see an md for evaluation.

How long and how often can be combiderm applied to cure neck rashes? Not itchy. I am very cautious in taking steroid creams but my GP prescribed.

Work with your doctor: Combiderm consists of Betamethasone Dipropionate, Clotrimazole, Gentamicin. Take some pictures of your rash. Then use cream as directed by GP for 2 weeks. Take new pictures. Compare to prior pictures. If no improvement go back to doctor. Or set up. Dermatology visit. Good luck.

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Time/fluids: It sounds like you have had an allergic reaction to this medication. Please make your doctor aware of this so that you are not prescribed anything similar in the future. Consult your doctor before using other antihistamines. Pushing fluids and time will get rid of the rash and itching but if it is severe see your doctor as you may need a steroid prescription.

Can food allergies, including to cucumbers or berries, cause itchy rashes on neck, back, legs? (does not look like hives)

Rash: Your rash may or may not be related to food allergies and the foods you mentioned, especially cucumbers, are rarely associated with this type of rash. I think you need to have your rash examined to determine what it is.

Dust allergies: Fairly common symptoms for dust allergies. Builds up as you sleep. They are worse in the morning. Pollen allergies are worse as the day goes on. Allergies cause itching ; tearing. Over-the-counter allergy medicine ; eyedrops help relieve it. Zaditor (ketotifen) is a good eye drop for allergies. You can also take over the counter medicine like loratidine in the morning or zyrtec before bed.

Hello. My 5months old baby has red rash behind both ears, it's not itchy. She also has miner rashes around the neck and legs but not red.

This sounds like: Eczema or seborrhea, both of which are quite common at this age. Depending on where you live, this could be affected by dry weather and sometimes a food/milk allergy. You can try over-the-counter Aquaphor. If that doesn't help, please discuss with her pediatrician.

Difficult to say...: Irritant response to a new skin care product, detergent or environmental change? Without hives, this seems to be most likely given that description. A physician might offer more likely alternatives with more information about you and the episodes. Lab testing may also be of benefit.

Try HC cream: Without seeing the rash it's hard to tell what caused it, but it's likely an allergic or irritant reaction. Try Hydrocortisone cream, which is available without a prescription. If that doesn't work you'll need to see a dermatologist.
