Skin Rashes on the Waist

Skin Rashes on the Waist

Rashes can be annoying, especially when it appears in parts of the body that are often constricted by clothes such as the waistline. Some rashes occur because of an underlying condition, but most skin rashes around the waist are caused a certain material that is often found in jeans.

According to experts, most women develop an allergic reaction to nickel. Dr. Marie Jhin, a dermatologist based in San Francisco, discovered that skin rashes developing around the waist were caused by nickel plates sewn in jeans.

The skin rashes that occur around the waist are often itchy and they can appear as bumps, red welts, dry patches of skin that look like a burn, and blisters if they become severe.

Unknown Cause

Unfortunately, dermatologists have yet to discover what exactly causes nickel allergy. It may be that some people’s immune system simply does not see nickel as a harmless substance and upon contact their skin will react negatively towards this material.

It’s easy though to find if you’re allergic to nickel because this type of rash is not limited to your waist. If you’re wearing jewelry that has nickel in it then chances are you’ll also develop a rash around the area where you wear that accessory. Also, experts have found out that women are more likely to develop nickel allergy compared to men so we suggest you hold out on having your belly button pierced until you’ve found out if you’re allergic to nickel.

Treatments

Dermatologists say that right now there are no cures to nickel allergy but that doesn’t mean you’ll never get rid of that rash around your waist. Experts say that there are certain creams you could use to relieve those rashes. You can use Corticosteroid or Non-steroidal creams to get rid of those rashes. You can also use Oral corticosteroid or Oral antihistamine as well to get rid of the rash around your waist.

Be careful though in using these treatments because they have side effects that might be uncomfortable for you. The Corticosteroid cream can make your skin thinner if you use it too long. The Non-steroidal cream can make the affected area feel a sting. The Oral corticosteroid can lead to weight gain, mood swings or even increased blood pressure. And the Oral antihistamine can relieve itching but may not be as effective in getting rid of skin itching.

    By wearing 100% cotton undies – but turning them inside out , I could eliminate/ minimise the direct elastic skin contact in the leg folds.
    The increasing itching of the anal area I finally realised was caused by the common toilet paper ( that undergoes a bleaching process).As soon as I use" hypo allergic" type toilet paper – problem fixed.
    Shampoos/Conditioners, Antiperspirant under arm roll on products, Laundry powders /liquids and and (hand) dishwashing detergents started to gradually giving me allergy reactions as I got older and was all fixed by buying all natural products which are now available in most large stores at a reasonable price ( Often on special ),in Australia. Took a while to find out the culprits hidden chemicals, even tooth pasts and of course skin creams and other beauty products can be culprits. Thank you all for sharing what worked for you!
