Unhappy A confusing Rash...or maybe its just me!

Hiya everyone! Hope your all ok! Thank you for having a look at this post for me

Last week I got sunburnt pretty badly on the top of my back and down the side of one of my legs. (More annoyingly was that i had actually caked myself in suncream before hand grrr!). I have been putting creams and such on, and the burns themselves have been going down fine, but a few days ago my sister notcied that i had a small rash on the lower art of my back. The rash has now spread to my sides, stomach, my arms (from elbow to wrist), chest, neck, face, bum and some parts of my leg. The rash itself doesnt itch at all anywhere, and the 'spots' are very very small, very pale (the ones on my stomach, face, neck and sides are light pinky red) and the rest are skin coloured raised bumps. The 'spots' are spread apart from each other - like all over the place rather then teaming up in little groupings. On the day that the beginnings of the rash had been spotted, I had also had been to the gym.

I am kind of putting it down to maybe heat rash because of my sun burns? or possibly some kind of reaction to the creams ive been using? Sweat from the gym? I really dont know. can anyone share some light on this?

Thank you in advance!!

Re: A confusing Rash...or maybe its just me!

Hi I was just wondering....... when you say creams and such. have you ever used tanning Oils. I had one summer where, i had a rash that seems familiar. Little bumps all over my back, sides and thighs. I stopped using any kind of oils and, have not had any rashes since! I hope this is of some help to you. Oils will clog your pores and, sweat glands! Good luck in your quest for answers!
