What would cause an itchy, painful rash over collar bone?

What would cause an itchy, painful rash over collar bone?

Plant juice, maybe: There are several things that could cause such a rash, especially if the rash is only on one side, not both sides. Shingles is a possibility. I'd expect clusters of small blisters to develop in that case. A contact rash from a plant or chemical, either alone or combined with sun exposure could cause this. Even bacterial infections, like impetigo or fungal infections, like ringworm, are possible. ...Read more

Have you worn any: New, especially unwashed, clothing? Have you switched from cotton clothing to wool? Any new foods, medications, change in your environment? It does sound like you are reacting to something. If you haven't already tried one of the non-sedating oral antihistamines, such as fexofenadine or loratidine, you may want to try one. If the symptoms still don't help, please discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Necklace Sensitivity: Very commonly the area of the neck is irritated by clothing or jewelry. In the case of costume jewelry, some individuals are allergic to a component of the metal such as nickel. If the chain, pendant or a suspended ring contains the metal it will cause itching and then a possible rash if ongoing exposure. Some types of fabric often do this as well with perspiration activating the reaction. ...Read more

Why is the area around my collar bone inflammed?

Why is the area around my collar bone inflammed?

Lifting weights: I see that you are 21 years old. The most common reason for this in a presumably healthy and active person is resistance exercises with the upper extremity. Classic examples include lifting weights, push-ups, and even certain yoga positions such as downward dog or plank. These activities cause a lot of force to go through the ac joint and collarbone. ...Read more

While lifting weights, my collar bone/shoulder area suddenly started hurting really bad. What could have caused this?

Stress and strain: Lifting weights can cause stress and strain in the shoulder, especially where the collar bone (clavicle) connects to the wing bone (scapula) in an area called the acromioclavicular joint.

If two doctors have said a swallon gland on my left collar bone does not require medical action should I still b worried due to area?

Usually NOT: Lymph nodes in that area are very common. The thing you should remember is that you should keep an eye on it. Watch to see if it is getting larger and more importantly feel the area to see if more nodes are coming out.
Usually single nodes like you have go down and disappear on their own. But if it enlarges or multiplies definitly seek medical help. ...Read more

Pain around collar bone area. Could it be heartburn?

Need 2b specific: There are many possible causes of pain in the collar bone area. In order to narrow the list of possible diagnoses you need to be more specific about your pain - how long are you suffering?, when in the day is it happening?, what helps it? What makes it worse? Etc.

The area under my right collar bone is numb and slightly swollen, nothing hurts but it's been this way for 3 days with no improvement I'm 17?

Watchit awhile: It is too early to tell if there is something real going on under your collar bone. You may have bumped into something unknowingly. So give it one or two weeks to evolve...it will likely go away if it is nothing serious. If it gets bigger over 2 weeks, then you will need medical examination to check it out, and get tests like X-rays which can look deeper under the skin. I wouldn't worry rite now. ...Read more

Yesterday I started to have shooting pains right in my shoulder collar bone area, when I take deep breaths. I'm still having them today. Is it cancer?

Wait to worry: Not every pain in your body is due to cancer. So you need to wait and see how this pain evolves over the coming several days. If it is getting worse, you need to go see a doctor for a check up. In the meantime, you can take a couple of tylenols (acetaminophen) if you are hurting persistently. Are you worried about anything else? . Sometimes the stress of your life can cause you to breath excessively which can lead ...Read more
