After 7-10 days: It looks like you have a cold but if this lasts more than 10 days or is getting worse, then you should see your doctor.

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. In the meantime if you're uncomfortable you could take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the itch but be aware that it can cause drowsiness. Claritin is less effective but does not cause drowsiness.

PCP, dermatologist,: Not allergist. Raynaud disease can be associated with autoimmune disorders, so a rheumatologist may be needed. Protect hands and feet from cold. Some meds help it, others make it worse.

I have a non itchy rash on my left arm and chest that spread to my neck and back over night. What could it be?

Many causes: If it lasts for less than a couple of weeks, then I won't pay much attention to it. But if it gets painful, it may be from shingles and you need to see your doctor ASAP to get started on an anti-viral drug to reduce potential complications. Suspect shingles if the rash does not extend beyond the mid-line of the body.

Protect: Avoid things that make you break out, soaps ; wetness. Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot. Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.

I have a non itchy rash all over body, on my arms. Legs, stomach, back chest and neck. I have been prescribed a steroid cream and antihistamines. I've been using these for two weeks but the rash has got worse. What could this be?

Needs re-evaluation: Not possible to diagnose without at least a picture, you need to see your doctor again who would refer you to a dermatologist. Please hold the steroid cream for now, it could be a fungal rash or something else, good luck

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

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.

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.
