How do you know if you have food allergies? Like rash on legs and neck area, very dry and itchy? Can this also be related to thyroid problems?

How do you know if you have food allergies? Like rash on legs and neck area, very dry and itchy? Can this also be related to thyroid problems?

Correlate with food?: The best way to know if your symptoms are due to food allergy is to have a diary and write down the foods with worsening of the rash. Rash limited to legs and neck area alone are not usually caused by food allergy. Rash on area of contact and if it is recent you may suspect contact allergens such as poison ivy. It is not likely related to thyroid problems. Seeing an allergist is an option.

Easy to explain: It makes you sweat more and move less while sleeping. I'm glad you're eager to make a change. You're still young and probably vigorous. Head down to the local gym or sports center, let others see that you're working hard on your body, and they'll accept you as a friend and support you in your body transformation. A lot more is at stake than just the skin in your groin and neck. Best wishes.

Are red rashes on the sides and back of my neck caused by dry skin or sensitive skin?

Difficult: Hard to answer without more details and seeing the area....In general dry and or sensitive skin can cause red patches on the neck. When the occur, see a dermatologist for evaluation and in the meantime you may try a Hydrocortisone cream.

Neck Irritation: A red rash or bumps after shaving are common signs of irritation. I would first recommend using a razor blade with fewer blades (ex. Some razors have up to 5 blades, so choose something with 3 or fewer). Another option is to try a product called tend skin to reduce irritation on your neck after shaving.

Skin rash: Best option is to have your doc look at it. Next, would be a virtual consult on HealthTap. There is a fee for this. Make sure it will accept your photo first. Peace and good health.

I have a itchy burning skin rash on my body is it due to they thyroid, I have taken thyroxin for years?

I have a itchy burning skin rash on my body is it due to they thyroid, I have taken thyroxin for years?

Maybe (not). . .: It might also be due to your oral antihistamine or seroxat (paroxetine). Lots of other possible reasons. New soaps/lotions/detergents? New clothing? Recent travel or camping? Bottom line: go see your doctor & tell him/her about your concerns. Also be sure to give timeline as to when rash started relative to any of above, eg new bottle of medications, perhaps due to switch in generic manufacturers.

Itchy?: At this young age, I would be more suspicious of eczema (atopic dermatitis) which may be linked to food allergies as well as airborne allergens. If these rash itch, then eczema is more likely. If you are using Cetaphil lotion, be sure to use it regularly and apply it within 3 mins after bathing. Talk to your pediatrician. A discussion of eczema can be found elsewhere.
