  • I would say it's an allergic reaction...to a medicine, a topical cream/lotion, or a certain food.

    I would make an appointment with an Allergist and have a skin test performed. You'll have your results in an hour, and you'll know EXACTLY what things to avoid! :o)

  • First of all--you can get a rash from stress. It happens to me
    Second--even if nothing has changed, you can develop a sudden allergy to it.
    I was on a particular brand of birth control for 5 months without any problems. I suddenly started to get a systemic type rash. I went to the doctor, they gave me prednisone and it went away. A week or two later, it was back, again, they gave me prednisone and it went away, they tried to figure it out and couldn't. The third time it happened, they switched pills to see if that helped. I didn't get that rash again.
