Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash looks like pimples


Avatar_m_tn looks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a diaper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> at first then small pimples form. It goes away a in a week's time. I just brought this up with her and she said she has just had a HPV test with her normal pap and will get back to me with results. But has no symptoms herself. Could HPV be causing this and why do I have a breakout only when I am with her?
Avatar_n_tn Well, I have to problems...the first is on my hands, it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> the skin is peeling most of the times especially on the palms of my hands as well as my finger tips and sides this doesnt itchy but doesnt look too pleasing either, There is also a visible cluster of pimples that dont itch. I had eczema at some point when the little pimples got realli severe i hid my hands but i got treatment. This was almost three years ago.
Avatar_m_tn Hello, From the symptoms it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> irritated hair follicles only. It does not look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> jock itch which does not present as bumps but is a red itchy rash. Folliculitis starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing or blockage of the follicle. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics and calamine lotion. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
Avatar_m_tn About 3 weeks ago I got some sort of contact dermatitis (or so the doctor says). He was convinced I was in poison ivy, I was positive it was a bite since I wasn't near poison ivy, and it started as three small dots that I found when I woke up. Long story short, it exploded into a disgusting, pussing mess, and spread violently, so after steroid creams did nothing, I was put on prednisone, 50mg x 5 days.
Avatar_n_tn I get a pink <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> across my face about twice a day, usually when I get too hot. It <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> like I don't know how to use blush. I sometimes get a fever with it. My doctor told me he does not think it's lupus, but we're waiting for blood tests to come back. What else could it be?
Avatar_n_tn The bumps look like small mosquito bites or pimples clustered together around a dark red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that developed after I scratched the initial two small bumps. After I scratched the bumps, some clear white substance came out followed by a little bit of blood. Over the last week, a red uneven rash developed around the 2 initial bumps, and more bumps appeared at its edges. Other than being a little itchy, the rash does not bother me. The area is cool, and does not smell.
Avatar_f_tn I have these dark and dry spots around my private area. I'm a female and these bumps and spots started appearing when I shave. So I stopped shaving but for months now it won't go away. I don't know if it's some kind of STD but it really looks like razor bumps but IT WON"T GO AWAY AND I"M REALLY SCARED. I've been to clinic and gotten blood tests but none of the doctors didn't find anything in my wrong in my blood systems.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, From the symptoms it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> infected hair follicles or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> due to friction rub. Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. I hope it helps.Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar_f_tn Hi Doc, Thank you for your response,my eczema rash has gone away with the help of the melaleuca products,oil,n renew lotion,its a miracle to me,i just have the "pimples"which used to have pus like fluid exactly like a acne pimple,not big but there,however it doesnt have that now,n looks to be drying up,but but seems it has scarred the little red bumps on my skin.As for the rash its now gone so no itch,scaling,dryness,all gone.
Avatar_n_tn I applied some dermlotion and Goldbound in the mornings. The red pimples morphed into scolded (heat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>) type <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. Now, I've had heat rashes in the past and usually get them between my thighs. It's been three days now, i notice the redness is almost all gone...but i notice a few more spots up around the crown. Any idea what this could be? I've scheduled a doctor's appointment for next week. But would like some piece of mind.
Avatar_n_tn This develops when your sweat ducts become blocked and perspiration is trapped under your skin. Heat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a red cluster of pimples or small blisters that maybe associated with itching. It is more likely to occur on the neck and upper chest, in the groin, under the breasts, and in elbow creases. Adults usually develop heat rash in skin folds and wherever clothing causes friction. Most often, heat rash goes away on its own.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, This could be due to acne/pimples/ or infection of the hair follicles called folliculitis or some bacterial infection/ fungal infection or some skin nodules etc. Nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions. It would be best to consult a doctor about the symptoms if they do not resolve and get a proper clinical examination. You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.
Avatar_n_tn I have a rash that keeps coming back in right at the end of my tailbone (in my butt crack!) I would say it comes back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> every other month or so. It kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> little pimples. It itches, and eventually, the little pimple like things break, and then it goes away. Any ideas? Should I call a doctor or is this just like a heat rash or something?
Avatar_m_tn so a while back she had a yeast infection in we continued to have sex in i got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> and small red pimples on my pennis i had went in got checked and january everything was negative....they gave me some cream to get rid of it and it did n bout 3 days.......but the other day w had unprotected sex and the same systoms occured again...
Avatar_n_tn Anyway It was about 3 years ago i started taking care of it the way i should but i still have this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a bunch of tiny pimples. it doesnt hurt or itch its just there. use to be just on the foreskin around the head but recently its been on the head itself. what is it and what is the best way to treat it?
Avatar_n_tn the rash is on his arms below the line of his tshirt sleeves and also a few places on his legs. It is red bumps and sometimes what <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> pimples, many of them all over his arms. I really can't figure this out. What could it be? and what should he do? I am guessing an allergy or sensitivity.
Avatar_n_tn A few weeks ago I noticed what <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> little skin tags, or colorless raised pimples on the back, left side of my 5 year old's neck. Since then they have spead to behind his ear and up into his scalp, but only on the left side. I've checked him thoroughly, as has the school nurse, and he does not have lice. Some of the bumps are bigger than others and appear to have a little hard core in them. They don't itch or appear to bother him.
Avatar_m_tn Hello Help! I noticed the pimples-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> lines (that you probably call <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. They're many pimples forming lines) a month and a half ago. I started using my soap (Dettol, which I think is classified as anti bacterial) more on the area thinking it's a hygiene thing and that I wasn't using it enough down there. (but it might be the opposite) The rash (or pimples) persisted for two weeks (a month ago) and even woke me up once back then, felt like they were burning.
Avatar_n_tn About two weeks ago I noticed a pimple under the pubic hair in the middle of my groin, about an inch above the penis. There was no cause for alarm or anything because pimples occasionally appear on obscure places from time to time (back, arms, etc). I had sex around the same time but I'm not really sure if the pimple was there before or after (again, a pimple wouldn't usually cause me any worry). The skin wasn't broken or anything, just a little red bump.
Avatar_f_tn I have recently developed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> around my mouth. nose. and chin. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> little pimples (red with whiteheads). They don't always hurt and sometimes it does itch I usually use Proactiv for a face wash. I was wondering if the rash could be from the Percocet or the tea and splenda. I really have not changed anything else in my diet or anything else. What could I use to treat the rash and make it go away. Any help would be great.
Avatar_f_tn I'm not sure if I have the exact same thing as all of you, but my symptoms are a bit similar. like a lot of you, I've been doing some research of my own on the internet. I came across a rash description that closely matches most of the symptoms everyone is having and a photo (for those who wanted one). The name of the rash is "Lichen Planus". Its on the Mayo Clinic's website. I came across it by looking at a slide show that they have of "common skin rashes".
Avatar_n_tn It's funny how people get from a curling sensation behind your shoulder to your entire body feeling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> you have ants. I would <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> to say that my sensation of something curling under my skin is excitedly where some of the others have felts this. In my case, behind my left shoulder, in a small spot. And always in the same spot. It's been going on now for about 4yrs. It seems to go away during the winter months, but come summer, it's back.
Avatar_n_tn I do not have any fevers, nor redness in that area... it just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a patch of pimples on my thigh and some along the knee, shin area.
Avatar_n_tn This develops when your sweat ducts become blocked and perspiration is trapped under your skin. Heat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a red cluster of pimples or small blisters that maybe associated with itching. Most often, heat rash goes away on its own. Severe forms of heat rash may need medical care, but the best way to relieve symptoms is to cool and dry your skin and prevent sweating.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, Heat rash or miliaria is a skin irritation caused by excessive sweating during hot, humid weather. It <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a red cluster of pimples or small blisters and more likely to occur on the face, neck, under the breasts and under the scrotum. Other areas include skin folds, areas of the body that may rub against clothing, such as the back, chest, and stomach.
Avatar_n_tn It has been five days now and it still has not gone away. Underneath my skin it also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> I have red bumps that's either a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> or pimples that just haven't come up. What could have caused this?
Avatar_f_tn I have had a lot of acne in the past but recently (past few months) I have had what <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>looks</span> just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> pimples on my chest/neck/back of neck and where my butt cheack begins and some around my butt. Could this be regular acne? it looks like it, basically little red dots. Some have whiteheads on it and some are just red. or coud this be something else? Molluscum Contagiosum? anything other then that? I also have few bumps toward the wayyyyy back of my tounge that are the same color as my tounge is.
