Red burn like marks on abdomen and back with itching. Remedy?

I am a 36 5 4 160 lb female professional who recently addressed her issue of adrenal fatigue and targeted neurotransmitter supplementation, as well as, discontinuing her excessive addiction to diet soda has now been a month of this healthier behavior and I have noticed unusual red marks all over my abdominal and back, almost like burn marks that are mild to dark red. I am confused and I swear they itch... they are large in size like the size of a quarter and have lasted at least a week... confused and not sure where to go next.

Thanks for writing in.
The red marks could represent an allergy or a fungal infection (This is less likely). You could be allergic to the soap or some thing that you have started using off late like a moisturizer. I dont think this is related to your adrenal fatigue or leaving diet soda. To relieve the itching, you can take tablet Zyrtec 10 mg once daily for 2-3 days. You can use Tablet Benadryl 1 tablet at night. This will make you sleepy, so dont take it in the day time. I would suggest you see your physician to get this rash examined.

Thanks for writing to us.
The red itchy rashes on the abdomen and back might be related to a viral infection or allergy or dermatitis. A direct examination by a dermatologist is teh best way to get them diagnosed for proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
