Do you have an allergic rash on your body? Why is it dangerous?
The skin serves as a barrier that protects the inside of the body. It is filled with special cells of the immune system that can protect the body and skin from viruses, bacteria and other hidden threats.
As soon as the skin cells detect suspicious substances of any type, they trigger a reaction that inflames the area – allergic skin rashes and this can lead to itching.
Immune cells can react to skin, whole body infections, or illness. Some rashes are red, painful, and irritated, while others can lead to blisters or blemishes on the skin.
Itching is a common symptom of many skin conditions. The skin may itch all over the body or only in certain areas. An allergic rash on the hands is common.
Allergy rashes in children are usually caused by the use of citrus fruits (orange, tangerine, lemon), especially in large quantities.

What is an allergic body rash?
A rash is a temporary skin condition characterized by redness, swelling, and itching. A rash is also a common allergic symptom that occurs when exposed to an allergen. There are several types of allergic rashes, including eczema (atopic dermatitis), contact dermatitis, and hives.
The reasons for the appearance of a rash on the skin can be as follows:
- An insect bite to which the body reacts negatively.
- The sensitivity of the body to a certain group of drugs.
- The body’s reaction to a food or supplement.
- Mechanical factors such as friction.
- Severe stress.
- Intoxication of the body.
The reaction can manifest itself in the form of redness, swelling, itching – everything that interferes with normal life, causing constant discomfort.
Types of allergic rash
Eczema causes a dry, itchy, red spot on your skin. Your skin may also appear leathery or scaly, causing small blisters or bumps that ooze. Eczema is very itchy and easy to scratch until your skin breaks, increasing your risk of infection.
Contact dermatitis develops when you touch a substance that irritates your skin, such as cosmetics, hair dye, topical antibiotics, latex, or plants such as poison ivy. Contact dermatitis looks like eczema, but it is limited to the area of your skin that has touched the allergen.
Hives are itchy, raised red scars that form on your skin. Hives vary in size and usually pass in a few hours. However, depending on your allergic reaction, you may have new hives and old ones disappear. Hives are often accompanied by angioedema – allergic edema.
What causes an allergy rash?
A wide variety of allergens can cause rashes. For example, you may develop an allergic rash if you come into contact with:
- Certain foods.
- Nickel, gold and other metals used in jewelry and zippers.
- Medicines you apply to your skin.
- Foods such as peanuts, shellfish, and dairy products.
- Plants like poison ivy.
- Cleaning products.

When to contact MC Altimed
Many people wonder when they should seek emergency help if they have an allergic rash on their body. MC Altimed can help you determine the cause and eliminate allergy symptoms of any severity, even if they are life threatening.
An allergic rash most often appears on the palms, back or legs, pay attention to this fact.
However, any time your symptoms are severe and sudden, you should seek immediate medical attention as they could be a sign of anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a form of allergic reaction that is quick, severe and life-threatening. Symptoms develop almost immediately and the person can die without medical attention.
Anaphylaxis causes difficulty breathing due to airway swelling and low blood pressure. Together, these symptoms can lead to shock.
Other symptoms and signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives, swelling, and gastrointestinal symptoms, may also be present.
Anaphylaxis is treated with adrenaline, a drug that narrows blood vessels, thereby increasing blood pressure. Some people who have experienced a strong allergic reaction always have it with them so that they can inject the drug at any time while waiting for emergency help.
If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the above symptoms of anaphylaxis, do not wait for the symptoms to worsen – seek immediate medical attention. You should also seek medical attention for allergies if you experience a new rash, hives, or other symptoms that make you uncomfortable, although these symptoms may not be as urgent and can be addressed at Altimed MC.
