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?
