Bumps on skin that spread

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on skin that spread

bumps

They aren't red or contain pus, but are just raised clear bumps on the skin. They usually form on my arms, legs, and stomach. I visited the doctor and he said I am probably having an allergic reaction to something. I do have seasonal allergies, and am currently experiencing nasal drip, have woken to my eyes being very goopy and closed shut, and have had coughing and sneezing episodes.
Last summer red blotches appreared on my ankles then the spread started and took a few weeks. it is almost a year and they have not gone away. it didn;t itch. it spread up the front center of my calf to the crease at the knee, in about another week it went up my thigh to my hip and my rear. Now it has reached the pulse points of my wristes and my under arm. It had faded to a brownish red and new blotches pop up around the old blotches. It does not hurt of itch.
I have had itchy bumps on my skin for the past five months. They started with just one bump and have continued to spread. They are mostly confined to my back and chest, however I have some on my arms and legs. The bumps are not red and are not noticable when they start itching. The bumps will eventually go away. I have seen four doctors and none have helped my problem. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
What causes big bumps that look like tonsils underneath the arms? At first I thought it was roll-on and decided to stop but the bump continues on the other hand.
Recently a series of about 30 small bumps have appeared on my left upper arm. They aren't clustered but are from the shoulder blade down to the elbow. Each day they've seemed to grow slightly and have gotten pinker and have begun to itch. Eleven years ago I had a shingles variation on that same arm but it was from mid upper arm to my hand. Are they related? What are the bumps? They kind of remind me of hives but are more spread out.
When I looked on my body, my upper legs, and upper arms were very itchy, and had little bumps on them. The bumps didn't look particularly bad, just a lot of sporadically placed bumps. On my thighs and upper arms (bicep) is where they are en masse (though my arms aren't so bad anymore). I have a few randomly on my stomach and lower back, but only one or two bumps at all for my entire torso.
I was told by my docs that i most likely don't need a test. They didn't see any lesions or bumps on my penis and its been since the beginning of November. In november i allowed someone to perform oral sex on me who was not my girlfriend. We've talked about it and are working it out. I got nervous because she said she has these 2 old looking pink flat skin things or scabs on her butt cheek. But we are not sexually active at all, we are waiting for marriage. All we do is kiss.
it stated off as little bumps after getting a hair cut.. i put alcohol on it and it did nothing.. it seems to spread and itch very bad...WHAT IS THIS AND WHAT WILL GET RID OF IT.
in the beginning, the smaller bumps were shaped in small circular patterns, but now the circles look much bigger and they sort of blend in with the other bumps. and the funny thing is that they're only on my legs and feet, and nowhere else. like, they haven't spread higher than my knee, but i think they will sooner or later. i dont have any on my arms or legs or anything, so my friends think that they're allergies. but looking at it more and more i believe it isnt.
It can take months from initial infection to experiencing signs. It's passed by skin to skin contact so it's easily spread via sex. It can/will go away on it's own, but takes a long time. There are treatments for it that speed up the process. Your GYN may know of it, but a dermatologist will know for certain.
Welcome to the STD forum. Unfortunately, I can't help very much in figuring out the cause of the bumps. Skin absorbs water on prolonged exposure, which can make minor variations in skin texture more prominent than otherwise -- the same reason the skin of your fingers wrinkles when wet for a long time. Warts do not come and go, and almost always are obvious on direct examination.
I did a sits bath before I went to bed and today I woke up and I have little bumps on the outside lining of the flap of my clit. on both sides. Im so scared. I am a 38yr old female who has HPV and had it treated in like 2006. I havent had a outbreak since. I don't know what this is and I am freaking out. I haven't been treating my body very nice. smoking weed , lots of drinking and blow. a bad combination when you have a crappy immune system. please help me understand what is going on..
Hello, Please elaborate more on the symptoms and description of rash so that a list of differentials can be made. Since the bumps have been present for such a long time, so the possibility of them being benign growths is there. I would suggest you to get an examination done by a dermatologist and preferably a biopsy skin to confirm the diagnosis. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing. Warm regards.
For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
i went to a dermotologist who treated this as a yeast infection and i thought the ointments and some once a week pill had solved the problem until they came back even worse. then something spread around to my tale. it seems like every where that two body parts with skin that touch have gotten this including under my armpits, my tale, my groin, my foreskin on my penis and even the inner thigh area which i thought was just me being gaulded until powder did not solve anything.
It was extremely painful and also spread and created even smaller bumps. They were so painful that I was taking 600 mg ibuprofens to rid the pain for sometimes I could barely sit or sleep. They seemed to spread for I got one on my ankle and also my knee and my boyfriend had gotten one on his inner arm and on his stomach. We treated them with antibiotics and waited until they formed head and a thick green mucous head would finally pop out leaving a hole. Very scary.
2 days later a simular rash spread up my arms and on the palms of my hands..
Folliculitis is a bacterial skin infection. It may be spread through direct skin to skin contact. I suggest that a gram stain or microscopic evaluation of skin scrapings or of the discharge be done to ascertain the cause. If discharge is present, then a culture may also be done. Your daughter may need oral antibiotics for this. I suggest prompt consult with her pediatrician.
I am not sexually active so I know it's not herpes or STDs. I thought that the red bumps on my leg might be razor bumps, but they've changed from red bumps to flat red areas on my leg. A doctor told me that I have molluscum because some of them had "belly buttons" on them, but I haven't shared a towel with anyone or come into contact with another person.
and had unprotected sex with a female partner...would she contract the noticable skin bumps from MC being that it is very contagious?
Did they retest you for bacterial and fungal infections again when you developed this rash later on? It's very, very unlikely that you contracted genital herpes thru fingering though in theory you could've contracted it from his urinating on you if he had an active herpes infection going on at the time that the urine was flowing over and picking up active virus. It's a reach though even with that. Did they do a herpes culture?
Now I have some bumps under my scalp and I'm afraid that they are warts. I also have a couple bumps on my face, but I have so much acne that I can't tell if they are warts too or if they are just irritated acne that will go away. How can I tell if they are warts? How are warts spread to parts of the body other than hands and feet? Can I infect my co-workers and family? I would like as much information as possible, but my doctors have not been helpful. Thanks.
