I went to the park across the street to grab my son. I was gone for about 20 minutes. It wasn't a hot day. When I came home, I noticed a red chest rash while washing my hands. It passed shortly after. 30-60 minutes later it was gone.

I don't know how to post a picture but I took one. Is there any way someone could look at it and tell me if it resembles photosensitivity, please?

I get red rashes when out in the sun or under fluorescent lighting.
It makes me think of the measles, but raised up on me.
I'm very photosensitive. It makes me feel very ill and weak.

Do you have any other symptoms going on besides the rash? If it's just a rash it could be from certain medications.

No, not the only symptoms. Too long to list. I'm bouncing between specialists who all have their guesses. I've seen a neuro for neurological issues - MS has been ruled out but diagnosed with TN and Myleoitis (or something like that ) and just spent 9 months wasting time chasing a Crohn's possibility. Now I'm finally being turned over to a Rheumatologist.

This rash is not raised. It looks very much like a sunburn but wasn't as red. It had little lines in it that looked like the red lines in the white of an eye.

I don't take any medications. I had a CT scan 3 weeks ago. The contrast is the only substance my body has received. I wonder if that would could be the culprit.

I should add that the Myleoitis is a "temporary" diagnosis. He cannot find the cause of the neurological problems.

I seem to be baffling everyone bc I have notable problems but all tests seem to lead no where.

A good rheumatologist will be able to figure out if it's autoimmune or not.

I hope you can get an answer soon.

I buy my sun protection clothing from coolibar.com. It helps me when I go outside.

I'm just so tired of going from doc to doc. It's been years now.

Preach it, sister. I hate doctors too.
