Upper Back Redness
My upper back gets red and hot sometimes. My left cheek flushes every day and my left arm does sometimes. No other symptoms. Can anxiety cause this?
Anxiety is amazing!: The things it can seem to do are almost limitless - especially in experienced sensations. Eventually damage may result but early effects on things you 'feel' and how it appears can be wild! Yet, you don't want to miss a sign of other illness that could be treated. So, discuss w/ a Dr - maybe have an exam/tests. Definitely consider CBT to learn management skills and curb anxiety. ...Read more

Upper back pain with a red swollen bumpy rash that doesn't itch, more like aches. Also have a small outbreak of the same kind between breasts.
Shingles?: A painful, localized rash w/ bumps could be due to Herpes zoster (shingles). It could also be due to contact dermatitis. Stop any fragrances in soaps,lotions, detergents, & see your doc to find out what's causing it. Drug treatment for Herpes zoster has recently been found to be less reliable/effective than previous studies implied. Good scientists gone bad, again!

My upper back keeps becoming inflamed, and red. It's also accompanied by a burning/pinching feeling. What could it be? Doctor says I'm fine.
Medical massage: If the Dr is right, that's good! What you might have is related to fascia (read: https://www.verywell.com/what-is-the-fascia-3120347 ) and a liscensed massage therapist will see it. Only some are trained to release it, but they would refer you if needed. Once released there may be specific exercises you can do to keep it free. So, seek a good MMT - the only negative is it's probably not covered $. ...Read more

I turn red and blotchy on my chest, neck, upper back and face in social situations, even when i'm comfortable with the people i'm with. Ideas?
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
