Why do I get a red rashes on my neck when I get nervous?

Why do I get a red rashes on my neck when I get nervous?

Anxiety Rash: It's not the anxiety itself that causes a rash, but the stress caused by anxiety. Stress puts your body in a state of extreme tension, and releases a great deal of cortisol and adrenaline into your blood stream – both of which are known to lead to skin reactions. Try to take deep breathes, drink plenty of water, and do some activities that relive stress. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Rashes: Knowing what the rash is and it's cause is helpful in both selecting the correct treatment and how to prevent reoccurrence. Absent that a few reasonable things to try would be: 1% Hydrocortisone cream, organic unrefined coconut oil, lavender essential oil All of these are over the counter and available at a health store. If these fail consult a physician. ...Read more

Rash comes and goes: Hello Anna, you have opened a real can of worms because a rash could be almost anything. It also helps to tell if it comes after exposure to something, does it itch and what makes it go away. But without knowing much detail I can say it could be allergic, acne, solar dermatis or related to hormones. I would see a dermatologist and have a little more detail for a better answer. Good luck :) ...Read more

Time/fluids: It sounds like you have had an allergic reaction to this medication. Please make your doctor aware of this so that you are not prescribed anything similar in the future. Consult your doctor before using other antihistamines. Pushing fluids and time will get rid of the rash and itching but if it is severe see your doctor as you may need a steroid prescription. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Plan b one step pill and hives related? I took the Plan B pill 2 almost 3 weeks ago and I've started to get hives or rashes on my stomach, arms, legs, back and neck. It weird because I had no other side effects. But I was wondering if it could be related

The: The odds of you having an allergic reaction from a Plan B taken three weeks ago are highly unlikely. Even if this was the case, there is no treatment aside from over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for itching. Consider other potential allergens like new products, lotions, or soaps.
Good luck. ...Read more
