non-itchy rashes/allergy sa face, neck &chest

hi guys,

i dunno what has caused my non-itchy rashes / allergy sa face neck, and chest. i'm sure this isn't measles kasi wala naman akong fever and wala rin sa back, thighs and legs.

i'm now taking claritin.

any initial findings? i'll consult a doctor the day after tomorrow.

please help :mecry:

    ^Please wait for the reply of the physicians.

    It would be best if you skipped work or school and visit your physician immediately. The sooner the better.
  • allergies are usually very itchy although some patients don't feel the slightest urge to scratch.

    Rashes belong to a very complicated gamut of signs and symptoms to diagnose.

    it has to do with when the rashes came out, if you're stressed, any new or fairly recent lotion/cream/ointment applied to the body, body soap/shampoo used, excessive sweating, change in home environment(dustmites/bedbugs), your age, past allergies and the list goes on.................and on........

    sadly some rashes can never be diagnosed. Doctors often have to resort to a shotgun treatment with low dose steroids for a few days.

    Best advice: visit a dermatologist and constant followup should the rash stay in its place even after treatment.
  • guys,

    just sharing... measles nga ata ito. i've had measles na before pero ewan why i have this na naman now.

    the symptoms (spots) are here...nagsimula sa face, chest and arms and now they're down to my thighs and legs too. WALA LANG AKONG FEVER.

    questions lang po:
    1- pwede ba maligo? kung hindi man pwede ang body, pwede kaya to just shampoo my hair?
    2- how many days will this last?! until when will i be nakakahawa?

    thanks :)

    ^Hello there. I'm curious, have you been physically examined by a physician?

    question: i recently noticed some very small white dots on my upper lip. specifically in the middle of my upper lip. hindi itchy, wlang texture. but its getting noticeable. what kind of doctor should i consult?
  • i went to my ob-gyne family friend...i know dapat sa general physician pero she's been our parang family doctor na rin for ages. that's her diagnosis. :bashful:
  • measles occur only once since one infection is enough to confer lifetime immunity. Rashes usually come out starting from the head moving down to the foot, then disappear from the head to the foot. and is usually accompanied by cough and colds.

    if you HAD measles before, its unlikely you're having measles again. The fact that you have no fever makes measles very unlikely. There are a number of viruses that can cause rashes but they don't usually cause any harm. Better yet, consult an infectious disease specialist.

    Rashes are a very tricky business and is not very easy to diagnose at times.

    I agree with Tjmd, if you've had measles before (assuming that you really had it), it's highly unlikely you'll have it again. Since we can't examine your skin lesions personally, we can't really be sure what's causing it. If the spots last for a week, or if you have other symptoms like fever, cough (with phlegm or not), sore throat, colds, malaise (aka panghihina), or if the lesions become itchy, consult your physician. In the interest of others, observing proper personal hygiene is a must. Cover your mouth when coughing/sneezing. Dispose of used tissues properly. Most of all, always wash your hands with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer.

    To answer your questions, yes you can take a full body bath (it's not a contraindication, not unless you're 2 days post-op).

    How big are they? Are they progressing in size? How many days/weeks since you've started noticing them?

    You can consult a dermatologist or a family physician.
  • the rashes are really small lang. parang chicken skin ako (goose bumps) na reddish. the ones sa face and arms have already subsided. sa chest medjo na rin. nalipat naman na sa thighs and a few sa legs. they look like when you're feeling cold, yung parang red and white patches yung skin mo pero pantay naman and nothing nakaprotrude (naka-angat, that's what' i'm trying to say). still no fever, hindi rin itchy.

    i haven't bathed because of the doctor's advice (but thanks to marbles, i think i can bathe na tomorrow!) kasi daw baka ma-impede yung paglabas.

    i'm not taking any med, just drinking lots of water and going for a pee every 10 minutes. whew!

    your thoughts help me a lot, friends. thanks so much.:bashful:

    thanks i will try and consult. they are very small individually kaya i ignored it, but collectively kita sila. they are not growing individually but lately parang dumadami.
