What Would Cause An Itchy Painful Rash Over Collar Bone
Plant juice, maybe: There are several things that could cause such a rash, especially if the rash is only on one side, not both sides. Shingles is a possibility. I'd expect clusters of small blisters to develop in that case. A contact rash from a plant or chemical, either alone or combined with sun exposure could cause this. Even bacterial infections, like impetigo or fungal infections, like ringworm, are possible. ...Read more

Have you worn any: new, especially unwashed, clothing? Have you switched from cotton clothing to wool? Any new foods, medications, change in your environment?

Some types of fabric often do this as well with perspiration activating the reaction. ...Read more

Hard to say: From the short description, it is hard to say. But, the location and the presence of itching suggests a contact dermatitis--an immune reaction to something that is touching your skin.

The two processes are usually linked because antibody production depends on communication between t-cells and b-cells of the immune system. See doc. ...Read more
Ingrown hairs: Those are ingrown hairs due to shaving too close to the skin. Modern razors are so good, they actually shave *below* the skin surface, which sets up ingrown hairs. Use a single-blade razor or electric razor and shave with the grain, not against it. You won't get as close a shave, but that's the idea. ...Read more
Many possibilities: Rashes are quite hard to describe and diagnose in words. A pediatric, primary care, or dermatology doctor will have to look at a genitals rash in order to tell what it is.

If viral or some other infection, other treatments can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
