It might also be your age - some people have a histamine imbalance in their eary 20s, which results in painful rashes when hot, nervous or stressed. When I had it my GP was no use whatsoever, so paid 75 quid to see a specialist, who prescribed stronger anti-histamines and at least gave me the re-assurance it would (only) last 12-18 months
I have the same problem! In certain situations my face neck and chest turn brite red and when the redness starts fading it gets really blotchy. I dont know what its from, and it happens all the time. It happeneds to me , when i ask questions, when i cry, when i go to a club or a bar, when i drink (even a sip of alcohol), when i eat or drink something hot, when i talk to people I dont know, when I talk to managers. When I talk about my chest getting red and sometimes for no reason at all. I feel it is rewening my life. I feel uncomfortable all the time and even dropped out of highschool, partially because of this reason. In some of these incidents people ask me if someone slapped me on my chest, if iv'e been scratching my neck, or if i feel ok? Sometimes (Just in good fun) people think its funny to say to there friends. Watch Kari turn red! And that makes me very embarrest and i turn red.
Does anyone else have this problem and is it this bad. Please help I feel nervous all the time and its only getting worse.
i have exactly the same symptoms my face goes hot then the rash starts on my neck sometimes it only lasts a few minuits sometimes im hot for over an hour.i've had to stop drinking i avoid going out with friends to any bars or pubs incase it happens, i even avoid eating infront of people because my face and neck flushes also if im stressed or upset it happens, i have been to my doctor about it before but he didn't know much about it he prescribed propananol (beta blockers) to see if they would help they do a little but i sometimes still get the rash im going back next week to see if he can look in to it a bit more , i have heard of a treatment called "intense pulsed therepy" not available on nhs though about�450 for 20 min treatment apparently it can reduce the facial fushing not sure about the neck rash if anyone knows anymore about it please let me know
Like many of you this rash has completely torn my life apart to the point were i neally fell into depression. Natural therapys and relaxation techniques while they are a good suggestion they simply didn't work for me. Any situation that puts me out of my comfort zone or simply gives me an incling of nervous tension my neck, face and chest would errupt into a see of hot throbbing redness. Finally getting enough courage to go see my doctor and informing him of my symptoms he told me that when you are nervous or indugling in alcahol or stressed your adrenal glands secrete adrenalin making your heart rate increase and blood rush to those irritating un wanted areas. He perscribed me with a drug to block my adrenal gland so that it would secrete only a third of the adrenalin it usually does in those more trying situation. While this drug is not 100% I find that the rash is occuring now only once a fortnight and much less severe compared to everyday. I have been experimenting with the drug and find that higher and lower doses work very effectively in certain situations it really calms you down. Unfortunatley I don't have it with me right now I just ran out and cannot remember the name but I promise if anyone is interested I will certainly get back to you with a name upon filling my next perscription. Good luck to you all my heart really goes out to you I am also living this nightmare.
