Customer Question

Hello, I have a rash on my neck it is about 2cm*1 cm wide. It is not itchy. I had the same rash in the exact spot 1.5 years ago, then the doctor gave me a cream to use which cleared it in a couple of days. But I d like to know what it is or what it is caused by.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?
Customer: No it doesn't itch at all. It is only pinkish red. It wasn't there last night when I was going to bed.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nope I am in quite good shape in general.

Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip

If it doesn't itch then it isn't an allergic rash.

It's eczema--a benign dermatitis condition that can be brought on by stress at times

A cortisone cream applies three times a day for a few days will rid you of it
