Rashes/blotches appearing on neck and stomach?

Rashes/blotches appearing on neck and stomach?

I wasn't sure which forum to post this to but anyways,

At the back of my neck I have always spotted this sort of issue, it smells really foul - as in very sour and when I scratch it brown stuff comes off in my nails. I've been trying to scrub and wash it hard and as much as I can with different types of soaps, cleansers etc but makes no difference.

Secondly, I noticed small blotches on my stomach which expanded and now they show up as rashes. And just since past few days I've noticed spots turned into a rash and a blotch right above. Help? I have also posted a collage of the parts - apologies if you find them unpleasant to see.

Please stop scrubbing at this ...just wash it carefully with clean water.

If you have a minor injuries unit at your hospital, I'd pop in & ask their advice.

If you don't have such a unit make an apt to see your doctor.....

Hope it settles down soon.


Hi aaa28mg,

Have you spoken to your doctor about this? Speaking to your doctor can allow him/her to provide you with the correct treatment and to perhaps refer you to a dermatologist if required.

It is advised that you do not pick or scratch your scabs/rash as this can cause further irritation to the skin.

We published an article on our blog about coping with itchy rashes, you may find some of the tips and information in the article helpful: lupusuk.org.uk/coping-with-...

Please let us know how you get on, all the best.


Scratch itch cycle. Try and stop scratching and see your GP. This is not a minor injury, so get an appointment with your GP
