hey everyone for the last few days i've been getting really bad skin irritations/rashes on my neck and chest. i also get them in other places at times but the worst is the neck/chest area which gets irritated everyday atleast twice. i've tried to search for clues from anything that may be causing them but i can't think of any new prodcuts that i've started to use or any new foods either. does anyone know what it could be? my mum had the same thing but much worse (on her face too-swollen eyes and swelling) and it took a lot of doctors and hospital appointements ad 6 months to find the cause-they says she's allergic to parfum, and this other chemical too, both of which are found in most products (shampoos, creams, the lot). i'm worried i may have the same thing....

You can't just become allergic to something. My gues is you haven't washed. Or maybe, when the weather is hot, it comes out as a heat rash. :confused:

Sounds like something I had when I was younger.... mine were all over my neck and elbow-pits. I had to use a different shower gel and I had to clean up any sweat really quickly.

Not sure if you have the same thing, but best to see a doctor. These things are usually rather easy to treat.

i wash everyday i'm really clean! and you can just become allergic to something which you weren't before, that's what the doctors told my mum. example: some people have hayfever some summers but not others, as a child but not as an adult, or the other way around, as your body goes through changes!

Of course you can!!

This is not NHS direct I would suggest you make an appointment to see your GP. While we all like to help each other out on here,as far as I am aware we have no qualified medical doctors.
