  • Rash over my entire body

  • Skin Itching

  • Skin over the entire body is red

  • Skin is broken from scratching

Questions your doctor may ask to check for autosensitization dermatitis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose autosensitization dermatitis

  • Did a small lump or bump on your skin suddenly spread all over your body?

  • Do you have any skin problems?

  • Do you have any symptoms on the skin of your stomach, chest or back?

  • Do you have a rash all over your body instead of just one area?
