I've recent been noticing I have severe anxiety, and now I got some weird rash that has shown up. I think it's from anxiety/stress but I keep scaring myself into think it's some cancerous rash. Has anyone ever developed some rash from anxiety?

    Could just be a simple itchy rash. wash the area well with no soap. Then put on some cornstarch over it and reapply before bed.  if you on a antibiotic you should tell you gp otherwise really it is a rash from a irritant. Forget about cancer has no play in this.

    yes you can get a rash..hives from anxiety

      Thank you, I'm new to all this and it's scary. I keep thinking I have all these types of cancer. Cause of these weird things I've never felt. Muscles being sore for no reason at all to just stabbing pains that last for a second. I hate it and it feels like it's eating me

      I know so many really strange things happen. I understand too well. Im dealing with tinnitus at this time. Most does go away within a couple of months. New stuff happens lol. Its very exhausting and scary at times. You are not alone in this. Many people have all different symptoms. Some classic textbook with their hearts and limbs but a ton with varied weird stuff. Theres a strong theory most of this stuff existed but now we focus in on it or worry about rather then ignore it. I know when i was younger i used to say oh ill be fine next week..and i always was. Now i worry what if..and scare myself at times.and i know better but you can really get debiliating weird transient things. Thats when you realize what you had before really wasnt so scary haha. Hang in there.  They say people with nad anxiety disorder tend to live in the future, always worrying about the future and not in the present time. The what if people.

    Anxiety can cause a rash in some people , although the main anxiety symptoms usually run accross the board there are things that affect some people and not others.

    I sometimes feel a creepy tingly sensation on my scalp if i am really anxious and that used to scare me to death. 

    I sà my GP and he reassured me it was anxiety.

    I have heard of anxiety rashes before , the same as some people can get very flushed.

    Good luck and i hope things improve. You could also ask your pharmacist for some antihystamine cream that can be a cure all for a rash.
