    I was diagnosed with Fibro a month ago. Have any of you had rashes during a flare? I had a rash from my neck to my ankles and the top layer of skin from my waist down peeled off in strips. My dermatologist and rheumatologist felt it was an allergic reaction to a viral infection. I've since read that sometimes rashes are a part of Fibromyalgia.

    I have not heard of the rashes being that bad, but rashes do go with fm.. I just get itchy and have little bumps and they itch clear to the bone. I scratch and make sores on my arms. the dr. called it nerves,, I called it a mess. Hope you are doing better..

    I get little rashes that go away when I take a antihistamine but nothing like that.

    Welcome to the board, you will find lots of info and support here from good people.

    I, too, get rashes, but not necessarily during a flare. In fact I have a rash right now and have been putting Benedryl on it to stop the itching and (hopefully) allow it to heal.

    I've always been sensitive to perfumes and have to be careful what products I use like soap and detergents. Just another fun symptom of FMS.
