I have been having this very odd rash lately that is on my left shoulder, parts of my back, parts of my middle right arm, both legs, and itches. It is small and pimple like. In addition I have had normal cold/flu symptoms such as coughing, etc. I have also been fatigued and occasionally dizzy.

I may have a stiff neck. Precisely what is this? Does anyone know? I cannot go to a free clinic until tomorrow and don't have the money to go to a regular doctor.

Thanks in advance.

  • Impossible to say and you need to get it checked out. Sounds like Chicken Pox though.

  • Have this rash on my stomach, side of my stomach, ichey, eyes sore, headaches, felt cold put heating on. Taken pain killer. Don't have the typical shingle rash with watery spot. Itch on arms around breast and upper arms. Anyone know what it could be. I am in UK and been in a few taxis lately and public transport. Suspect Shingles but as I say not blistery rash! Oh I do feel tired but this is because I have a thyroid problem anyway underactive. On Levothyroxine been on that ages now, so not that. Feel off food just want to drink tea. Katbabe

Katbabe It seems a lot of the Thyroid medications reformulated ....I was unaware of this as I never relly look at my bottle...but happened to notice ( reform) recently and I have had a growing, oozing, crusty rash for several years that started in my left arm and has now gone to the right side of my body. It was around then that my Throid med was reformulated, but I have no chice as I have loe Thyroid and without it I fall asleep drivinf home from work as I tried to take myself off because of the horrible itchy reash. The skin after it heals has no sensitifity and is hard and very stiff.
