Can someone help diagnose me? I am an 18 year old female. I’ve noticed three symptoms (I do not know if they are related/ have the same cause or not).
1. After I shower, I get this rash on my back, shoulders, chest, and area just below the ribcage. It looks blotchy with some raised areas that resemble mosquito bites—light bumps surrounded by redness. It itches a lot. I’ve tried changing my shampoo, conditioner, and soap, to no avail. This has been going on for a while.
2. More recently, I’ve noticed a lot of bruising on my thighs and some on my arms. Around 7-8 bruises in all, and I don’t remember bumping anything.
3. A little uncomfortable mentioning this but the area around my vagina inches a ton.

Any ideas? Thanks.
