@rohit-kapoor Hello, Stress rash often affects people who have underlying skin conditions, such as eczema, rosacea, or allergies caused by environmental triggers, such as pollen, animal dander, or certain foods. Some people even develop rashes from sunlight or weather changes. Still, even without an underlying condition, you can still develop a stress rash. Stress rashes often appear as raised red bumps called hives. They can affect any part of the body, but often a stress rash is on the face, neck, chest, or arms. Hives may range from tiny dots to large welts and may form clusters. They may be itchy or cause a burning or tingling sensation. Stress rash is rarely a serious problem, but if you have difficulty breathing or your throat or lips swell up then visit a doctor as soon as possible. Home treatments, such as cool compresses and ice packs, can help relieve swelling and itching. Stress is simply the body’s reaction to a situation that feels overwhelming or creates anxiety. Once stress is controlled these rashes get milder. To manage stress, exercise, meditate, eat healthily, and get enough sleep.
