Doctor visit: Unfortunately the next step is not via computer, but to have a doctor actually view your skin. By seeing the lesions and pressing upon the skin the doctor (like myself in the emergency department) can get the context of the rash. Your description is good, so remember to tell the doctor about your symptoms just as you have written. Good luck to you. .. Feel better. ..

7 year old developed itchy rash first on back of neck later in day it spread to arms, stomach and legs no other symptoms, what is it and what to do?

7 year old developed itchy rash first on back of neck later in day it spread to arms, stomach and legs no other symptoms, what is it and what to do?

Hard to say: If the rash is moving from a local to a general distribution it is unlikely a simple contact dermatitis like poison ivy. Generalized rashes can be secondary to an infection (virus or bacteria) a food reaction or bug bites. Without examining the rash it is hard to speculate on a cause or specific treatment. If it itches, Benadryl can be given for comfort.

Very itchy rash around my neck its splotchy and very dry. What to do for it?

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.

Different causes: There are different causes of this type of rash includung allergy to foods, medications, etc. Have a physician or dermatologist evaluate the rash if still present.

I have an intensely itchy rash to one side of my face that is spreading quickly to my jawline and neck. It's happened before but I can't figure it out

Hives?: If the rash is spreading rapdily within hours, it is possibly hives, see an allergist, especially if it happened before. If the rash is spreading over days, it could be a contact allergy and I have seen such rashes as a reaction to plastic cellphone cases, if you hold the phone against your cheek. An allergist can help you figure it out.

What can cause an overnight itchy rash on my chest, arms and neck?

Allergic reaction?: An itchy rash on chest, arms and neck could be due to an allergic reaction. If it suddenly occurred overnight, it is is possible that is is due to a reaction from something in the bed like bed bugs. Try OTC antihistamines (zyrtec, allegra) to see if rash resolves. If not, please see primary care provider.
