Hi I have been suffering from this rash for a few years now but it seems to be getting worse and I would just love to know what it is so I might be able to do something about it or If anyone also suffers fom the same symptoms you may have some ideas/remedies etc I could try. I am getting married in 8 weeks and I know the day will be emotional stressfull and I just dont want to be walking down the isle with big red blotchy patches!
Any time I get emotional I get a big oval shape blotchy red rash on both my upper arms and all over my upper chest. My ears go burning red and my face goes blotchy red on the sides.
It also occurs if I drink alcohole in the exact same areas and I dont have to drink much for it to occur.
The areas affected are really hot to touch and I need to cool myself down with water etc.
It usually goes away in about 20mins although the more I think about it the worse it gets!
It is extremely noticable and everyone comments "Oh whats wrong with your arm" "your all red!!" etc etc very embarasing
Is there anything I can do to help this????
I seem to definately be afected by heat as Hot showers and standing in the sun for a period tend to make my legs blotch and a bit itchy but my main concern is definately the bright red upper body rash!
Thanks so much in advance......
