Really itchy rash on one side of face that was in the sun. What can I do to even out color and stop itch?

Depends: You should treat the symptoms with a mild topical steroid and see if that helps. If this is really one-sided then this may be a sun-sensitivity problem, meaning something other than a sunburn. The change in skin tone may even out with time. You should probably see your doctor. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I've been on lLamictal for 7 years with no problems. Two days ago an itchy rash appeared on the right side of my face. Could this be a Lamictal rash?

I've been on lLamictal for 7 years with no problems. Two days ago an itchy rash appeared on the right side of my face. Could this be a Lamictal rash?

Unlikely: Usually, as you are I think surmising, the Lamictal rash comes on when you have begun this medication. It can be localized on the face alone, but usually it is more diffuse on the body. Again, it typically comes within weeks (not years) of administration. However, given the potential seriousness of rashes with the drug, I would get checked out with a dermatologist as soon as you can. ...Read more

My mum was taking actonel (risedronate) and now she can't go out into the sun because of red itchy rash on her face. Could this be a side effect?

My mum was taking actonel (risedronate) and now she can't go out into the sun because of red itchy rash on her face. Could this be a side effect?

Absolutely: Actonel (risedronate) can make you extremely sensitive to sun exposure, and you may easily develop sunburns. Always use sun protection when taking this med—long sleeves, pants, broad-brimmed hat, sunblock/screen of at least #30 spf applied several minutes before going out into sun. Make sure sunscreen blocks both uva & uvb. Discuss this side effect with doc who prescribed it. ...Read more

What can I do about a itchy rash that I am developing on my stomach, chest, back, neck, and is slowly showing on the side of my face?

Eczema: Do you have a history of allergies, asthma, or atopic dermatitis? If so, you may be experiencing an eczema flare. I would start by using an otc product like aveeno (oatmeal) eczema therapy and an otc hydrocortisone. If that does not improve your problem in a week, I would see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Husband has itchy rash (blister)looking on hands, feet, face&and some on torso. One day fever only, already had chickenpox.?

Chickenpox: A "blistering" rash in that many areas in an adult is most likely to be chickenpox. The leans will be the size of a kitchen match on a pale pink base surmounted by clear blister with an indentation (umbilication) at the top. The blisters turn cloudy and then collapse into scabbed lesions. A past history of chickenpox is not always accurate. I recommend a dr. Confirm the diagnosis promptly ...Read more

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.
