54 year old female in great health. Under high stress. I have an itchy, leathery rash on the front of my neck and chest. Some on my arms as we'll. very sensitive... Almost prickly feeling on neck and chest. Taking Benadryl at night and using topical during the day. Any ideas? Can a rash like this be caused by stress? No new lotions or shampoos or perfumes. Thanks for your help!

  • Could it be shingles? It can make a prickly rash that comes with stress.
