I don't know what I have. These are my symptoms:
Recently in the past month and half or so. I've been getting red rashes on my stomach, just right above my belly button. It gets red and very itchy. It might stay for a couple days and then it will go away. Then a week or two later it will reappear again around the same spot. It has reoccurred 4 times so far. I also noticed that it leaves like a brownish mark. It's disgusting. I don't want brown spots over my skin..
This also happened to both sides of my shoulder. Red rashes then it turned brown.
I feel like it could be be a tshirt i bought recently. But I doubt it because I don't think I'm allergic to any clothing material. I've been wearing clothes for 19 years and this is only recently starting.
Anyone help me?
Often allergic reactions leave a brown mark afterwards but it will should away. It could be your tee-shirt. Often clothing is treated with chemicals to "fix" the dyes which is why we should wash clothes before we wear them (not sure how many do this, I don't).
Or it could be your are allergic to the actual material of the shirt. Wool is a common thing to be allergic to but some people are allergic to latex or bamboo or whatever.
Maybe that's where you sweat or there is the most friction. It's a very easy one to test out. Just don't wear it for a couple of weeks. Some chemicals don't wash out easily and if it is the dye or the fabric you could still have problems.
Or it could be just plain old allergies from something you're eating. I get raised itchy spots in the same place every time (forehead, shins, small of back, behind ears) from a viral infection.
Ok I don't think it's the tshirt.. the rash is coming back. I haven't worn the shirt for almost 2 weeks. Plus that's the only tshirt I bought in almost 3 months.
I don't think it's food because i've haven't eaten anything that I haven't eaten before..
