Common Questions and Answers about Under arm rash photos

rash

I recently developed a rash under my arm that is raised, round and red. It is about 3/8 in size and developed a scab after about a day. It does not hurt or itch. The scab came off and it is now looks scaly. I have had it for 5 days and it is similar to the first day I noticed it. I cant find any photos or info on the web that have the same raised round appearance.
I agree with patsy10 - but just to say I had something sting/bite me last week - it was very itchy - then it did swell and was hot to touch - on my arm too - it looked like a EM rash - I even took some pics. - but I know it was a 'mosquito' type gnat - so there are other 'bugs' that cause a 'bullseye rash' . I would see the doc.
Prior to the outbreak, I was taking bactrim, so could this also be an allergic reaction? I'm completely puzzled. What could this be? Pics of the progression are under my profile photos, please refer to them if you will before responding.
A little over a year ago I got a rash on my penis. After a week it didn't go away and I made a doctor appointment. I have been in a healthy relationship for more then 6 years so I knew it was not an STD. Regardless I went to my doctor and had blood work done. Tests came back clean for any and all STD's. He wanted me to see a dermatologist. Before I made the appointment the rash went away. It did leave minor scaring. I never went to the dermatologist.
The other thing is that a dermatologist will probably have some better ideas about what may work to get that rash under control so you are not suffereing. I don't want to be the harbinger of possible bad news, but my rash never showed up until week 10 and I still have it at week 27. My case manager thought it was the Incivek so she did nothing thinking that when I got off Incivek it would go away. Well, it did not. It got a lot worse.
about five years ago I suffered from a very unpleasant rash. it was characterized by small white blisters that itched severely and then hurt severly once broken. though the itch is most definitly the sensation by which I would define the outbreak. once broken they produced puss on an ongoing basis and seemed to spread to surrounding tissue whenever broken. it started on my hand, at the far end of one index finger.
Nurse said if the doctor wanted to see me after reviewing the labs she would call. She ask me how the rash was...I told her my right arm is swollen terribly bad and I still have full body rash. End of conversation. I have tried every thing. Oatmeal baths, tons of water to hydrate, eating veggies, yogurt, nuts. I don't like who I am becoming. Thanks for listening. Would appreciate any help on what I can do. I am assuming a white blood cell count of 2.3 is normal for the treatment.
At 4-6 weeks postpartum with my 3rd child (now 7 months) I got a nasty red bumpy rash under my armpits, on my forearms, in the folds of my elbows, and random other places. No one new what it was and since I was nursing, I just had to deal with it and use topical cortizone type creams. These did nothing. It eventually disappeared at about 8 weeks postpartum. I attributed it to a hormone change. Suddenly, I now have the same rash again.
But I had a similar attack on the right side about nine days ago, and I let it go for a few days. I could feel the muscle spasms going under my right arm, under and into the breast. Went to a different massage therapist who really presssed too hard and the pain got worse. I had breast cancer seven years ago, so immediately called my oncologist, had a cat scan of the chest. Nothing.
After a few months they started appearing in similar locations on both sides of my body. Worst was on the hips and inner part of the arm (don't know the medical term but the area opposite side of the elbow). Also on my shoulders, stomach, forearms just above the elbows, groin and lower penis (I was worried at the time it was an STD but the doctor said that, unfortunately, it was dermatitis there too).
) Im 16 and have had this rash for a year now. I never had it up until i started a job after school and on weekends in a store. I havnt met anyone as young as me who has the rash except for a girl 2 years older than me that has left my school but i never got to talk to her about it. I have terribly pale skin which doesnt help when i get this rash. I read on a website quite a while back that exercise helps. My family has bought a treadmill so i have been on that up to half an hour everyday.
He's refusing to go to a doctor and says it will go away again - and the spots inside his arm have already disappeared again (but he's had it for a couple weeks this time, all over his body...) I have studied every kind of round/circular rash - and looked at photos. Everything looks more irregular and/or more inflamed than this.
( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up. I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
(the photos section shows there are 3 photos but nothing is visible). Just for your information, a swimming pool rash is common either swimming in either chlorinated, polluted or infected water. The skin regions exposed to pool water containing excessive amount of chlorine may also lead to such rash. Although chlorine is a necessary element in swimming pools in order to kill bacteria but it may lead to allergic reaction to some sensitive skinned people.
PS. MY FAMILY MEMBER ALSO STATED SHE HAD BEEN TO THE DOCTORS & ER MULTIPLE TIMES FOR SAME PROBLEMS...ITCHING & RASH...THEY TELL HER JUST BACTERIAL SKIN INFECTION & RASH...NOPE...ENDED UP BEING SCABIES.EEEK!
Hi ladies, I posted 4 photos of my ds' rash...it first began just like little red spots...my mil took a look and said it was a normal baby thing...okay...sure...now 3 days later this is what I saw after giving him his bath...He has been really irritable, stuffy nose, etc these past 2 days...but just a slight fever..nothing too serious in that case, he still has his appetite..well WHAT is this rash????
In the US the rash treatment you want to get ASAP is either a strong steroid cream, or Fluocinonide, and the antihistamine to calm the itch is Hydroxyzine 50mg. There are too many doctors being part of these treatments that do not have ANY IDEA about so much of the SX. If no one will listen, go to Emergency at your closest hospital, and demand these levels of creams.
He told me to stop the bupropian and prescribed benadryl. Five days later the rash had grown in intensity-the hive like rash had stopped. but the rash that started it all (the two round ovals) had progressed and spread to the whole front of my stomach. It is very itchy, burny, thick feeling skin-totally red all the way down the front of my thighs and above the belly button. It then somewhat disperses into this red blotchy rash that is all over my arms,legs, back, and chest.
i posted a little while ago about having an intense itch all over my body with no signs of rash.. slowly i began to develop a little rash on the inside of my arm and after seeing 3 other doctors(and even having my blood tested) the 4th finally figured out i have scabies. i am sure that most of you are probably aware of scabies but the thing i never knew that you can have scabies for months (as i did) with no rash. when i finally showed signs of it i figured it was due to my constant scratching.
My youngest daughter has it on her face,both eyes are swollen,and its under her arm,her belly, and is spreading to her shoulder blades. My son has it on his face and ear. Dr. said scabies,I treated with permethin cream 5%. Treater them from their scalps to the soles of their feet on Moday night at around 8:30. They woke up the next morning looking worse. I told the dr. and he said it should be better by this evening. They are showing no signs of improvement and its actually spreading.

That pain I have felt before. It might just be constipation, and eating more fiber will help, may I say that hot dogs are one of the worst things for you? They're fine once in awhile but more than one a week is too many. Well seeing that your droping weight fast can cause periods to be lost. It's might not be that and missing a period ussaly dosent mean anything. Although if you don't get it again then you have lost it. Don't feel bad about that.
A diluted extract of each kind of pollen is applied to a scratch or puncture made on your arm or back or injected under your skin. With a positive reaction, a small, raised, reddened area with a surrounding flush (called a wheal and flare) will appear at the test site. Confirmatory test is by blood tests (RAST). It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
I initially developed a red mark under my arm which made me think I was allergic to my deodorant, changed deodorant but it continued to develop from my underarm towards my shoulder in line with the edge of the bra. I also developed a really, really itchy rash on the chest band of the bra at the front. A wheal developed and it was very sore and hot. Having read all about Victoria Secret bras I'm wondering if it's the same problem with these Triumph ones.
hi, my husband has a similar rash on his arm. it begins to look like it is going away and then the next day it will be that much worse. the doctor gave him some hydrocortisone with steriods but nothing has worked so far. they are circular red rashes that have spread up and down his right arm, so far, no one else has gotten it, and it hasnt spread beyond that arm. it has little white puss filled bumps in it. it looks like a ring worm in a way but that's not it.
to top it off my rash was bleeding too, in which that same blood from rash could have gotten into the other person too. risk? could this arm rash have been a chancre sore? you said veruca vulgaris is not syphilis, i understand that, i was only wondering if veruca can be a result of syphilis, or the 2 have no link at all.
Yes, i got scratch by a cat also about a year or 11 months ago and i have these blister like bumbs that formed out of the scratch i got on my right arm, i pick the blister and it bleeds, but before it bleeds i can look very close and see little dots on the blister where the blood is flowing to the surface, i think our rashes are the same, because now its all over my right arm and under it and my left arm and i tried everyyyy thing, I got scratch on my left arm, no bumbs, on my right arm, bumbs,
I had the same red dots, but the skin between dots and in surrounding area was red as well (lighter red, tho) Odd thing, this rash appeared on both sides. On each arm, below armpit, inner arm. On both legs, under hipbone area. and on both arms between wrist and elbow. And on both sides of my neck--like those hickey things we joked about during tx. I used Desonide Ointment and lotion 0.05%. My derma also told me to continue atarax 10 mg before bed.
You need to call your treating doctor first thing in the morning (today if you can) and tell him/her about this rash. Most, or at least many, of us have a rash and itching with Incivek and/or Riba, but most of us have red rashes (of varying degrees), not blisters, and not blisters over the entire body. Incivek can cause a very severe rash with potentially extremely severe consequesnces.
Sorry for so many posts...I added pics of my rashes to my page under photos...my profile pic also shows my arm after 3 mins in sun....tell me what you think please! Thank you very much in advance!
