    I don't necessarily get a rash you can see but I do get areas of skin that are super sensitive to touch and other areas that just itch like crazy.

    My face breaks out on the sides of my cheeks and down my neck below my ears. Never thought it had anything to do with fibro.

    I've had a chronic rash for almost a year now & can't seem to attribute it to anything other than the fibro.

    The rash is mostly on my back, some on my abdomen & some on the arms. It flares at night when if I start itching, I just can't seem to stop. The itching is sometimes worse than the pain of fibro.

    Skin rashes prove a tough challenge for doctors & patients. I've given up trying to figure out its cause & refuse to try steroids or any other damaging drug.

    I do believe that it's caused by a weakened immune system, much of what explains many of the fibro symptoms.

    Best of luck in finding relief.
