Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)
Adolescents and young adults typically have the rash in the same locations as children, as well as on the hands and the feet. When infected, eczema rash leaks fluid that crusts over when scratched.
Some of the more common skin allergy triggers for hives are: exercise, sweat, hormones, stress, illness, scratching, cold, sunlight, pressure, or vibrations. Skin allergy triggers vary from person to person.
Allergic Contact Dermatitis
Following a detailed medical history, your skin allergy doctor will typically order skin tests and blood tests to help determine what is causing your allergic reactions.
Skin allergies are often linked to asthma, nasal allergies, or food allergies, so additional testing for these conditions may be required to pinpoint your skin allergy triggers.
