Hi Revelation,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The appearance of a red rash that feels itchy in the neck area can be caused by the following conditions:

Infections, for example:


Tinea corporis (fungus)
Impetigo
Folliculitis
Varicella zoster (chickenpox)
Herpes zoster
Scabies (scabies)
Miliaria (prickly heat)

Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with an allergen or irritant)
Insect bites
Drug eruption

Atopic dermatitis, and so on

At this time, you should check the rash directly to the doctor. To prevent the spread of the rash, doctors need to first identify what is causing the rash. Only then can proper treatment be carried out. If the cause is an infection, then the drug will be given according to the possibility of the microorganism causing the infection, for example by administering antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, and so on. Other therapies, will be adjusted to other symptoms you feel.


Always keep the area of ​​your neck that has a rash clean. You can clean it in the shower, but avoid rubbing it too often because it can cause sores and irritation. Take regular baths with soaps that contain sulfur to reduce itching. Also shampoo your hair and tie it so as not to cause the neck area to become damp. After that, dry your hair and body well and then put on clean and dry clothes. Avoid exchanging towels or clothes with other people to minimize the risk of transmission. If the itching is severe enough, you can sprinkle salicil powder or apply calamine lotion on the itchy skin to make it more comfortable.


Hope it helps ya..
