Rosacea unlikely: If it is only on your neck and chest, it is unlikely to be rosacea. The fact that it does not itch tends to rule out allergic causes and fungal infection. Unfortunately, one really needs to examine and feel the rash in order to help make a diagnosis. Best to see your doctor for further evaluation. Sorry I cannot be more helpful. Read more

Don't worry: Idiopathic craniofacial erythema may be the basis. Some people also experience sweating. It's not caused by anxiety - just normal arousal - but it can cause anxiety. Hopefully, you can avoid that or w/ cbt dispel it quickly. You may just have an overactive sympathetic nervous system. If it's not too bad, nothing needs to be done. Or, you can consult a neurologist. Stay comfortable and well. Best! Read more

That is difficult: To answer without seeing what you are describing. My first guess would have been urticarial, but unlikely if it doesn't itch. The fact that it is sensitive to touch indicates that it is likely exposed dermal tissue and should be looked at by someone with a medical background. Read more

Hives: If you have hives, the rash should be itchy and it should be dynamic (each spot tends to move or disappear before being replaced by another spot). First or second line antihistamines are a good first step if you suspect hives. If this is recurring or persisting for more than a week, consider a virtual consult to discuss potential causes and the necessary work up. Read more
