Doctor insights on:
Neck Itching Thyroid
Depends on the cause: There are many things that could cause the skin to itch. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
See your doctor: You may have a skin condition that needs treatment and follow up by your doctor. You may have anything from an allergy to one of many forms of dermatitis. Your doctor will get you started on a plan to feel and look better.
Cyst, abscess?: This is a common area for an ingrown hair or sweat gland which can get inflammed, swollen, and irritated. Rarely it could also be an infection. See your doctor it may be a cyst that needs to be removed or an infection that needs to be draind. In the meantime, use warm compresses and try to avoid squeezing or poking at it.See 3 more doctor answers
Back and sides of neck itches. Turns red and feels kind of like a sunburn. For a couple of weeks now. Gets worse wearing my scarves and a sweatshirt?
This sounds like: A contact rash, possibly from your scarves. Is the rash anywhere else? How long does it last? I would recommend having it checked by your doctor. Or if you are a HealthTap Prime member, getting a consult where you can send a photo to one of us. You can also try not wearing the scarves and see if it goes away. Antihistamines may help temporarily.

There is a muscle between my neck and back that ached last week (I thought it was a spasm) but this week it either aches or itches. Should I worry?
Heat: Heat and do stretching wxercises. Change your positioning for something you are doing is irritating that side.
Many factors: Try to see what has changed - anew shirt, clothing that touches the neck area, new detergents, not rinsing off the laundry detergent properly, etc. If persists then seek help of a physician who can help control symptoms while a work up is started.See 1 more doctor answer

I have m%e9ni%e8re's disease. Every year I get a skin lesion on my neck about 1" long. It burns, itches & hurts. Could this be related to menieres? Ty
No.: Meniere's is a disorder of the middle ear; I know of no rash that is associated with it. If the lesion on your neck recurs in the *exact* same spot every time, it is probably herpes simplex. There is also something called a fixed drug eruption, which occurs in the same spot every time you take the medication that causes it. Other possibilities exist. See a dermatologist next time it happens.See 1 more doctor answer
