I have red blotchy rash on my stomach, back, neck and arms

I have red blotchy patches on my stomach, back, neck and arms. It s flat and normally doesn t itch. Sometimes it s hot. It seems to fade but never really goes away. It brightens in color after showers. It came on when I was pregnant with my first child nearly 3 years ago.

To my opinion your red bloachy spots are may be due to Vasculitis.
Thorough investigations are needed under proper medical advise.
Probably the treatment answer will be corticosteroids orally in tapering doses under medical supervision
You can take some immunity booster medicines also. That will help you in releiving your symptoms.

My son has a blotchy rash, it started as rings and moved in ripple effect on his legs. It has spread over 36 hours to arms, hands, fingers, stomach, back, neck and face. It disappears when he goes to sleep and reappears in a different place. He has been vomiting daily, once it twice a day for 6 days. No fever. A&E did blood tests, CRP is 40. Consultant said its viral. I m not convinced, his stomach was very bloated yesterday, he is lethargic at times and generally not himself. He was born at 29 weeks he is now 16 months. Medication is ventolin, clenil. Singulair & ranitidine have been stopped as these are new meds.

Tonight about 2hrs ago, while getting changed into nightwear I noticed I had a red blotchy rash around my neck that feels sore with a burning sensation but not itchy at all. This maybe coincidental but I then had an extreme hot flush lasting about 5mins soaking the back of hair but not had another since. I,ve never experienced this before either. 6wks ago I started using Systen Sequi HRT Patches so could this b some sort of reaction? Again this is a 1st if it is a reaction to these patches.
