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

I get rashes on my neck and chin. They are not bright red though it kind of is a dark pigment color and they go away sometimes and then come back.?

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

I get Jock's itch, facial and neck rashes and itch and dry skin the next day I consume alcohol. What could be the problem? I am 46 years old, on obese side, drink alcohol, say weekly...sugar and cholestrol border line with poor eating, not on medication

I get Jock's itch, facial and neck rashes and itch and dry skin the next day I consume alcohol. What could be the problem? I am 46 years old, on obese side, drink alcohol, say weekly...sugar and cholestrol border line with poor eating, not on medication

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

Some kind of rash on my elbow, underarm and back of my neck it is bumpy and skin colored. When you scratch it a lot and over time, it will get tougher and the area appears to be pink. If I keep scratching and scratching until it bleeds, it will become dry

Some kind of rash on my elbow, underarm and back of my neck it is bumpy and skin colored. When you scratch it a lot and over time, it will get tougher and the area appears to be pink. If I keep scratching and scratching until it bleeds, it will become dry

This: This really does sound like eczema. That was my first thought before I even read your doctor's diagnosis. You could also be dealing with a dermatitis, due to an allergy. I recommend you request allergy testing or blood testing (check with your doctor regarding prices), and also a higher strength triamcinolone cream or another steroid cream like Elocon is good. Keep the areas hydrated. Use vaseline, aquaphor, or eucerin cream (in a jar).
Good luck. ...Read more

Sometimes when I eat shrimp I get a rash around my neck and chest. I do not get a rash everytime I eat shrimp. And I am not allergic to Bay seasoning.

Avoidance: Avoidance remains the best approach since shrimp is not an essential nutrient in one's diet. On occasions, one may be allergic to just one species of shrimp and that may account for your occasional symptoms. How well the shrimp is cooked may also affect its allergenicity. See an allergist if you have further questions and are unwilling to give up all shrimps. ...Read more
