I have had this rash under y neck the last few days, and I thought it might be my perfume irritating my neck as I don't normally spray directly on my skin. I stopped doing that and it's still very itchy. I just noticed that it's on my groin area as well as over my hips at the back.
DH is saying I have measles but I think he's just trying to scare me! Ha ha. It's only on "hot areas" of my body. I haven't used any new products, eaten or drank anything different. It's not heat rash as its still cold where we live.
Possible TMI but I took photos! Please help! Does this just look like skin irritation to you? Or something worse?

Heat rash maybe?

Op says its not heat rash.
I have no idea what it is though, sorry! Definitely not used different washing powder? I can't think what else it could be given its so wide spread.

Have you been around pets? Could be flea or lice bites? Or do you hang your washing outside? Might be an insect in your clothes

I know you said its not heat rash but it looks exactly like classic heat rash to me. I get it all the time, even worse in winter because I snuggle up under a feather doona and sweat in my sleep.

If its can allergic reaction of any kind it should go straight away if you take an anti histamine

Ok lovely. Now it's on my knees. I think I'll try shedding a layer and taking an anti histamine!

Do you get hayfever by chance? I've been getting the same kind of rash with hayfever flare ups. Sucks big time.

Thanks all. Nope, no hay fever. I've just started thinking about all the different things I've been taking lately, and I started antibiotics on Friday, for my teeth (root canal next week) maybe a reaction to that and the panadine forte together? It didn't occur to me earlier because I only started them on Friday evening and this has been on my neck all last week :/
its now on my knees and chest, the antihistamine has taken the worst sting out of what's on my neck but hasn't stopped it spreading.
I'm in the wars! Ha ha. :/

If it was the antibiotics it would be in your tummy. I does look like a heat rash. You can buy cortisone cream over the counter. I'd try that for 3-5 days (no longer)
