Recently (past 2 months) I've developed a rash on my neck and face. It started with itching, and turned into raised welts. The marks look like fingerprints, as if someone was trying to choke me. There is also a mark on my chin, and in the crease of my left nostril, and one on my right eyelid.
I'm 35 years old and I've never been allergic to anything.
I believe it may have something to do with excessive sweating I've been experiencing at night, because it seems that, other than the chin, these marks occur along creases in my neck and face.
The marks itch, remain for about 10 days, and then go away. When it comes back the marks are in the exact same place!
Some of the marks look like 3 seperate marks merging into one.
My mom is prone to hives, but I've never had them. I also wondered if it could be like athlete's foot, since I excersize regularly outdoors, and don't always get to change right away.
