Sudden facial rash?

I couldn't find a truly appropriate topic for this.  I don't know what's causing a sudden rash all over my face and neck.  I had something vaguely similar happen a couple of weeks ago when I was sick with the flu.  But this time is different.  The first time, it started with a little red spot under my left eye.  The spot grew bigger and itchier, then got dry and scaly.  At that point, I got red splotches on my neck and chin line.

But this time, just all of a sudden, I woke up with these red, swollen splotches around and under my eyes, down my neck, and on my chin - all over.  They itch like crazy.

I've tried to figure out if I've touched anything different lately and can't think of a thing in my environment that's any different.  I thought maybe I'd developed some sort of excema, but these two instances are different from each other.

I don't have insurance so I can't afford to go to the doctor.  Any ideas what this could be?

Hi,

This could be allergic reactions to unknown substances, skin hypersensitivity, eczema, dermatitis or sun rash.

Do you notice the lesions trigerred in response to a specific stimulus like sun exposure?

You should try to keep the area dry and clean. Try some powder to absorb the sweat.

Apply calamine lotion at the site and take some oral antihistamine medications for your complaints.

If the symptoms are still persistent, consult your dermatologist and get a proper clinical evaluation done.

Let us know if you have any doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing.

Good luck.
