I had rash, covered my whole stomach, now it is on my neck?

I’m 21, with no history of allergies or skin conditions. About six months ago, I had gotten the first rash I’ve ever had. As I irritated it with scratching it eventually covered my whole stomach, and was scale-y feeling. After some time it went away.

Currently, I’m having the same problem. This time it’s my collar bone/neck. A few days ago it itched, and now it’s getting larger and has the same scale y texture.

I wear the same necklace everyday, and it shouldn’t be contact dermatitis from that. The rash is only in one small area and I have no metal allergies and I’ve worn this jewelry for quite some time.

What is it, and how can i prevent this issue? It only itches occaisonally, and it’s not painful or inflamed. Theres no “gunk” crust, or gross discharge of any kind.

hi
this may be due to a dry and sensitive skin that you may be having. you can use skin conditioners and moisturisers to see if it helps. another possibility is of a low grade skin infection. applying local creams can help.
will be able to guide you better if you could post the photograph of the lesion here.
thanks

Hi…
Let us know that allergy and developing allergy is of no specific age or substance, your body can develop allergies to any substance at any time of your life…
so what you are describing is a type of allergy/contact dermatitis… so try not to use this substances whether they are metal or whatever for some time and notice what exactly causes your allergy…
take an antihistamine as well and try washing the area thoroughly with no soaps or detergents … just water….
