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.

I have a rash on my neck and arms after sun exposure. Sometimes I feel nauseous and exhausted. I spend 1 hr. In the sun max. Why does this happen?

Sun poisoning: Your rash is due to sun exposure. Being in the hot sun dehydrates you and alters your electrolytes and metabolic makeup causing nausea and fatigue. Be warned that too much sun can result in much more serious problems like melanoma.

Allergist dx constant flat rashes neck, arms, are from choligenic urticaria, the heat from exercise and a mix of detergent reaction. Says try zyrtec (cetirizine)?

Urticaria: It's difficult to tell if you truly have cholinergic urticaria from your description. Usually urticaria is raised. But some people have what is called dermatographia which causes flat red hot skin especially when stressed, touched or hot. In either condition Zyrtec (cetirizine) should help

My daughter has a cigarette burn type rash on her face neck and arms. A few on her butt what could it be?

Couple of things: I have seen this with chickenpox and impetigo. It may be best to have her looked at because strep A can be involved and the risk of not treating is the same as strep throat.

Large painful bite looking bump on side of neck, allergic reaction to bandaid covering it, now rash around neck, chest, legs, and arms. Very itchy!

Large painful bite looking bump on side of neck, allergic reaction to bandaid covering it, now rash around neck, chest, legs, and arms. Very itchy!

Mgt suggestions: From your description, the area on the side of the neck may be an insect bite, and the total body rash part of an allergic reaction.Exam the neck area for any bite marks, stingers. I would suggest not attempting to remove the stinger. Applying Hydrocortisone and Calamine in combination with an antihistamine may provide relief. I agree that if you have any breathing problems, proceed to the ED.

Mgt: From your description there may be an allergic reaction. I would advise letting your PCP know and a dose of over the counter children's anti histamine such as Claritin (loratadine) may be used. It may be related to the virus or an allergic trigger. Your PCP will obtain a history including whether there were new foods, medications, lotions etc.
