About a month ago, I went to the doctor with and was diagnosed with a heat rash. They gave me a steroid cream and told me to use it until the itching went away. I used it for roughly three days and the rash and itchiness went away. About 3-4 days my skin (mostly upper body) started feeling very irritated as though I have mild case of rug burn all over. I haven't gone back to the dr yet, because there is no rash or redness at all. Just the sensation that I've been "rubbed" the wrong way. It doesn't seem to matter whether or not I have a shirt on or not, but it doesn't bother me while I'm sleeping, but once I wake up and get going it seems to kick in and last all day. Everything I have read online says it's stress, but the problem is, I'm not stressed or depressed. I'm a 30 year old healthy male and have made no changes in my life. Any help would be great!!View Thread
