Hi I have this rash on my body that's like skin coloured and next day it looks kinda like hickeys?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor if it does not go away in a week or so. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I would recommend seeing your own doctor or a dermatologist, or doing a HealthTap Prime consult, so that one of us can look at the rash and be able to help you better. ...Read more

Hive?: Sounds like this is new for you. If the spots come and go within a 24 hour period, then almost certainly hives. Watch out for new foods or personal care products that may cause them, but most of the time a cause cannot be found. If you have no contraindications, you could try otc cetirizine that is longer acting than Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and less sedating. If persistent, evaluation by an Allergist can help ...Read more
