Question Can someone plz answer my question... I am going crazy here...

Ok let's see.... I have had this bad skin rash for years now (mainly on my neck and chest and back). It is little red and pink looking bumps that itch really bad. Some of the bumps do get pretty big though(about the size of your fingernail). I have been to several doctors about this and they have all told me different thing. One said it was bad acne. The other said it was caused by yeast and put me on medicine that didn't clear it up. I am 25 and it only gets worse as I get older. Can someone please give me some insight on what this is or what I should do about? It does get really bothersome. Thanks for any replies.

Do you use dry cleaning or starch on your clothing shirts? Is there a chemical plant near by? Heat rash? Poisin Ivy/Oak? spiders in your closet or drawers? Tick bites? how long have you had it? perfume allergy? try baking soda paste, try changing your detergents and soaps. change your pillow cases and bedding more often and dust behind the bed weekly.

Hey There, Thanks for replying. I have done everything you've suggested. I have had this rash for quite a few years and I have been to several doctors and they all tell me something different. I really don't know what it is I was hoping someone on here might have some insight for me. Thanks.

Do you own a cat that sleeps in your bedding while you are away?

Hey there, We don't own any animals. Do you think it could be hives or something. I had one doctor tell me that the rash was caused from yeast. Have you ever heard of that? Thanks.

See a dermatologist. You may have Grover's Disease which the cause and cure are unknown. Or it could be Lichen Plantus.

Check internet for the two above conditions and see if it sounds anything like what you have.

believe it or not, it could be due to stess!
When I'm under stress, i can sometimes break out in hives.
Stress is a very strange thing. It seems like a harmless word, but you wouldn't believe what it can do to your body, look at ulcers.
Until you can find a doctor to dx it, I'd invest in some hydro cortizone & an alergy med to help with some of the itching.
Good luck
Corissa
