Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on skin that don't go away


1415174 tn?1453246703 My forehead and cheeks broke out in a face rash that had small red non itcy bumps. That went away but then I have some larger itchy bumps that won't go away. I don't think they are an infection it is related to the allergy. I am only washing my face with Cetaphil and then adding 10% glycerin for some hydration to these spots. Glycerin is a natural substance found in the body and I don't think that is causing a problem. I do have eczema on my legs, and hands. 1. what could this be? 2.
Avatar m tn I have felt low grade flu like symptoms with mild headache and sore throat and general ill feeling since the prodrome that waxes and wanes but will not go away. I have been on 2 grams of acyclovir per day for pretty much the whole time, switching to valtrex once, but nothing will make this completely subside. I was also put on 2 courses of doxycycline for ten days each that didn't seem to do much..
Avatar f tn I have dry skin so i generally put baby oil on my face but i discovered that if i dont put any on the bumps they start to dry up and go away. They're not always red and they don't hurt its just there. They're are in the perfect circle like ringworm but i know its not ringworm because i've had it before and they don't itch or anything. I'ts right on the top of my left cheek bone and its driving me crazy because i can't cover them up and its the size of a quarter.
1407066 tn?1281294558 (I have since stopped taking it) I took Benadryl and used Hydrochortosone cream on the rash and it went away (mostly) I still had a few bumps on my neck and several on my back after two weeks. Shortly after that I developed a raised bump on my hip and each day I got more and more bumps although these new bumps don't itch. I have them now all over my body, oddly, except for on my face and neck.
Avatar m tn I'm also having issues with skin thickening and cracking on my fingers. It appears to be slowly spreading to other fingers. I recently went to a dermatologist and received a prescription for Umecta crème. My medical insurance didn't cover so I had to pay $190.00 out of pocket. I have noticed a big improvement. This med comes in the form of a cream and a mousse. Be sure to get the cream. I will update at a later date.
Avatar m tn I now have the red itchy bumps all over my body excluding my genital area and face but they are starting to appear on my neck and I worry they will soon be on my face. The bumps do not go away, they turn into scabs or dry flakey spots and itch/burn now. I've changed nearly everything I use soap wise, which did not help. I've noticed that scratching only make's them worse and they swell up like a mosquito bite, but they itch so bad it's hard not to, and after showering is the absolute worst.
Avatar f tn It is red, has small bumps (they are not pus filled), and the skin on and around it is very dry, but not flaking. The dry skin makes it rough but it is mostly flat unless I touch it, then the bumps raise and it slightly burns. I don't have the rash anywhere else on my body and I have never had anything like this before. Any thought on what it might be?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn My entire family has a itchy blotchy rash that will not go away. My wifes appear to be bites but other family member are bumps and blotches. I have bug bombed the house and our dog stays outside. There is a pet snake in the house, could this the cause? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn This condition is spreading very slowly, and does not go away. The is not dermatitis or eczema, that is BS that a dermatologist will tell you when they have no idea what it is. Also, eczema is red scalling patches. If anyone has an update to this condition's true cause or name, and treatment options, it would be greatly appreciated.

So lady said dryskin bumps but she was wrong an her boss thought I was crazy when I said she told me that also she gave me a cream called Triamcinolone Acetonic cream that didn't work just made me itchy more. they come an go.
Avatar f tn Over the yrs I woukd go to the Dr, get a steroid injection or and or be placed on prednisone and the hives would go away for quite some time. The last time I had the hives now was 3 yrs ago.at that time, I had my current rash along with the hives. I got the steroids, it all went away for 1 yr. The next yr around mid to late May the red, bumpy insanely itchy rash reoccurred and I have not been rash free for more than a 2 wk period since then. The rash is much, much worse from May to September.

Avatar n tn I was wondering if you have any recommendation of anything i can do to make the fungus and itching to go away and to heal the small cuts i have that i think reopen when i get an errection. I really don't want to go back to my Dr this week because I cant afford it and he will probably just tell me to go see a dermatologist which I cant afford. Thanks for your time and help, it Is greatly appreciated!
Avatar f tn in august 2008 i was diagnosed with VIN 3 (vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia high grade), which is severe precancerous changes on my vulvar skin. it's been likened to changes that happen on the cervix, but it's on the outside; and it can go unnoticed to the naked eye. a vulvoscopy (like a colposcopy) is required to see all of the affected areas. i understand this is relatively rare, but like cervical changes, it's largely caused by HPV.
Avatar m tn I have a strange rash that has been appearing mostly on my legs and feet in large numbers, though they have appeared on my scrotum and shaft of penis a couple times in very small numbers(like 1 or 2 spots ever), off and on, and this started to happen sometime in the summer of '09 I believe. They started out as small red marks that soon went away after a day or 2, primarily located on my feet and shins.
Avatar n tn This is a condition characterized by itchy tiny bumps that give the skin a sandpaper-like texture. The bumps may be red in color or flesh-toned, and they most often occur on the thighs and upper arms. These are only few possibilities. Only an external examination can determine the exact cause of your condition. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Do keep me posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn Dec I had chicken pox but they went away and in jan until now I have strange itchy bumps and sometimes welt bumps that comes and go away an some lady said dryskin bumps an gave me triamcinolone acetonide cream that didn't work but made me itchy more an the man who own the place I told him,he look at me like I was crazy,I don't know what these strange bumps/welt that come and go are
Avatar m tn most recently I started using lotrimin anti fungal cream that seems to help heal it about 3 days ago I noticed I noticed about 5 small bumps on red puffy skin on the shaft they didn't hurt accept feel slightly irritated I was able to squeeze them off and they seemed to be wet when I applied cortizone the redness and puffy-ness went away and all that was left was the red spots where the bumps had been.
1143036 tn?1293034684 However, I am pretty sure that mine are little Spasmed muscles that get sorer as a headache comes on. When I push on them they roll and it hurts but they don't go away. Mine feel more like lines than bumps too.. Another suggestion, after surgery...I had little bumps like that all down my neck...I think that they were small lymph nodes. They didn't feel like normal lumps...sort of like tapioca pudding I guess!! The weird thing is that the places you describe finding them..
Avatar n tn Hello, 3 days ago I began to see little water bumps on a few areas on my body. a couple on my leg, stomach and chest. They are itchy and once I scratch they turn red and then a scab forms. I thought they would go away but instead I see more and more. I am not taking any medicine, have not changed my diet nor been in contact with anyone sick. I have tried putting tea tree oil but I don't know what it is or how I got this. Can you help?
Avatar f tn I shave my lower legs all the time but I only shave my upper leg sometimes in the summer time. My upper leg has a bunch of non-itchy skin colored bumps on them. I don't understand what they are, where they are coming from or how to make them go away. I need some help.
Avatar m tn Hey. On last Friday, I noticed red bumps on my upper arms and they don't itch at all. They are small, like half a centimeter in diameter. A couple of days later, more bumps appear on my lower arm, and some appear on my neck and my waist, and also 3 bumps appeared near my knees. Now, they vary in size and some of them look like insect bite. I thought they were mosquito bites since I got them when I slept without wearing a shirt. However, from my experience insect bites would itch.
