It could be scabies. The intensly itchy rash gradually spreads and is worse at night.

100% cotton bed linen is what I diagnose that you need.

Allergy or heat rash?

@WetSausageRoll yes! Definitely worse at night, it wakes me up (after taking ages to fall asleep)

@quitecontrary123 I had a test around the time it started and it was negative, could still be possible I suppose

@Lozzie51 not shingles, I've had that before, horrid!

@DobbinsBobbins yes! It looks similar to that but in smaller patches. Oh god, I hope it doesn't spread further.
I'll give the GP a ring anyway then and try the advice on the NHS site. Thank you

Is it more itchy at night?

Covid rash is a thing.

Lozzie51 Fri 15-Jan-21 21:22:41

Is it on one side only? Blisters? Shingles?

No I haven't, I didn't think of that, thank you! Off to fish out the piriton.
I agree, just trying to avoid going if I can, fingers crossed that works!

Have you tried antihistamines? Might be an allergy.

Otherwise its back to the GP.i am sure there are other creams they can prescribe.

Sorry, posting here for traffic

I've had a rash which has gotten better and then worse over the last couple of months. It's on my ribs and across my breasts.

Well now it's come up on the back of my neck and where the waist band of where knickers would be on my lower abdomen.

I genuinely want to rip off my skin, it looks a bit like hives but then there's also a couple of parts that look almost like bites, but no one else has been bitten and there's no fleas in the house.

The GP had a quick look when I was in for something else and said to try steroid cream, which I have, but it's not helped at all. I'll try anything at this stage, please help!
