Hello! I am currently in between insurances & have been unable to have my 12 year old daughter looked at. Being the Mom that was always so paranoid when my children were really young, this has been a challenge for me. I have read on the internet, to no avail. I'm hoping someone has an idea of what it could be.

1 week ago, a red rash appears on the back of her neck.
It does not hurt & it only itches when touched.
It appears "dry" & is pretty flat.
After a few days, it becomes brown (like that of a birthmark).
I thought it resembles a "chemical burn" but no chemicals have touched her...
It's also not a burn from her curling her hair.
She said no bug has bitten her (& there are no apparent bug bites).
The brown stage "appears" to be the recovery stage????

Ahhhh! I need insurance, but we have to wait a MONTH! :(

Please, if this sounds like a rash similar to anything you or someone you know has had, please let me know! I hate trying to self disgnose anything (especially on my child) - this sucks!
Thank you all in advance!
