Not serious but: It is highly unlikely that you would get an allergic reaction from taking the first dose ever of this medication.

My neck and chest feels sore to touch, similar sensation to sunburn (but  it's not). There is no rash, redness or other symptoms. What could this be?

Tenderness,dysthesia: Such tenderness, if it's the skin, without rash or redness, suggests a hypersensitivity of skin disorder. I would look for deficiencies of magnesium,calcium,iron,vitamin b12, and also check thyroid status. Anxiety is a possible cause also. Discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

Needles stabbing my stomach/neck/back but there's no redness or rash. It happens when I'm hot or touch something warm.Lasts 3 days after I drink.

Skin irritation: Skin irritation can have several causes. If no rash is present, then itching is usually related to irritated or dry skin. Alcohol is particularly drying as it causes renal water loss, but is also a trigger for histamine release. Bathing with hot water can also cause irritation/dryness. Be sure to moisturize aggressively with non-alcohol containing lotion (eg Vanicream). Cetirizine may help too ...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

Many possibilities: Many things can cause a red bumpy rash, including a virus, a medication, or an allergic reaction to something you applied to your skin (or a detergent or fabric softener, or something you ate or inhaled). If over-the-counter Hydrocortisone cream does not help, you'll need to see a dermatologist to get a precise diagnosis. ...Read more

Yes but slowly: The way you describe your rash strongly suggests that you had shingles (Herpes Zoster). It is now in the stage of healing. As long as there is no pain associated with it, then give it some time to heal. Skin discoloration can stay for a long time. ...Read more
