I have an intensely itchy rash to one side of my face that is spreading quickly to my jawline and neck. It's happened before but I can't figure it out

Hives?: If the rash is spreading rapdily within hours, it is possibly hives, see an allergist, especially if it happened before. If the rash is spreading over days, it could be a contact allergy and I have seen such rashes as a reaction to plastic cellphone cases, if you hold the phone against your cheek. An allergist can help you figure it out. ...Read more

Inconclusive: This is a low positive or borderline ANA result. All it means is that you have some autoantibodies but not nec an autoimmune disease, especially if you have no classic symptoms of Lupus like cheek rash or joint disease etc. A FALSE positive result can be seen in about 20% of healthy people. Specific subtypes of ANA are more specific than others, such as the anti-dsDNA. ...Read more

Neck and chest and left side of head itch no swollen or rash help please??? sleep on furry pillows and use baby lotion and wash with dove and nivea

Skin irritation: Focalized itching without rash is rarely due to underlying organ disease. I suspect skin irritation (sun coming through car window, the furry pillow, etc). Try changing both the pillow and the lotion. Rec fragrance-free non-alcohol containing lotion such as Vanicream, Eucerin or CeraVe. Use 2-3 times daily and always after bathing. ...Read more

What can I do about a itchy rash that I am developing on my stomach, chest, back, neck, and is slowly showing on the side of my face?

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. ...Read more

I have an itchy red rash on my face and neck. I had a CT scan on Tuesday and a bone scan on wednesday could one of them caused it? Thank you

Radiant Glow.: Yes, either one of the test could have caused it. It is not all that common but the contrast medium used in CT scans as well as the radio tracer element used in bone scans are both capable of causing an allergic reaction. In your case, a rash. You might give the testing center a call and see if they have a protocol to deal with this issue. ...Read more

I'm diagnosed w/ low vit. D. Was given Synergy Vita-D 1000iu. After a week I started having rashes on my face & neck. Could it be the Vit. D causing it?

I'm diagnosed w/ low vit. D. Was given Synergy Vita-D 1000iu. After a week I started having rashes on my face & neck. Could it be the Vit. D causing it?

Not Vit D but...: Vitamin D is a hormone our body produces and can't possibly cause rashes. However, supplements have other ingredients. I wasn't able to find the other ingredients in Synergy Vita-D but it's possible you are reacting to one of the other things in it. It could be a coincidence but it's reasonable to try a different brand. Most adults need 4-8000 iu/day in fall/winter.
