Recently Ive been getting so many rashes its rediculous. I had a horrible rash all over my chest and neck and chin, and realized (after putting some on my wrist) that I was allergic to my boyfriends shampoo because the spot i put it on my wrist blew up in a swollen rash. He stopped using it. The rash gradually went away, but now its coming back a little, in like spots on my chest. Theres a couple of patches of rash. And randomly a patch on my wrist (not where I put the shampoo) and now on my palm. I havent come in contact with any poison ivy, oak, sumac, or any poison plant. Im a serious hypochondriac and seriously freaking out. why do i have a rash?? Is this a symptom of like cancer or something serious...I can barely sleep at night...
These rashes can be due to contact dermatitis or pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching.
No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months).
