Rash on back

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on back


Avatar f tn I don't know if it's a symptom, but I have a bunch of bumps on my lower back going up a bit, and spaced out. They itch like crazy. I haven't been in any poision ivy and it's not bug bites because I washed everything and I still keep getting more. There aren't a ton of them, but they are big and if itched or rubbed the wrong way by accident they start to throb because they itch so bad. Is this because of Hep C or could this be something else?
Avatar n tn Do you have any idea what this rash might be? I recently got over a case of tinea blanca on my back and I'm wondering if this rash is connected in any way. Any help with this matter would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have this rash that reoccures on my back by my shoulder. It comes back every year around this time. It itches and breaks out.I kinda looks like a insect bite. What should I do?
Avatar n tn For about two weeks I have had a brownish-red rash on my lower back...it is not painful, raised, or anything but it is not going away.....I am concerned because I had unprotected sex a few weeks ago, but it doesn't look like any of the STD rashes as far as I can tell. It is covering much of my lower back but sometimes fades if I treat it with olive oil or chamomile, then comes back....could it be from drinking too much or from a more serious disease?
Avatar m tn I have been having this acne-rash on my back for years I have been going to different dermatologist none of them seem to have an answer for my problem. I have a small area on my stomach with the same thing. Any one else having this problem? I have a clean medical history, I am 100% healthy. Right now all I want is a resolution.
Avatar f tn For the past several years I developed a skin rash on back and neck area every time I sunbathe. Lately I get the rash on my back even when I'm not in the sun. Could this rash be related to medications I'm taking or to vitamins I'm taking? This rash started after I was post menopausal - did not have this problem before that.
Avatar f tn I have a rash on my back. It keeps recurring in the same spot. It isn't red. It is a little darker then my skin color and it itches too. It's below my bra clasp, so I know it isn't my bra irritating it. It’s been going on about a year. I don’t have it anywhere else just in that one spot. If anyone knows anything about this I would really appreciate any information you have. I haven’t gone to the doctors yet. I really don’t know if it is that serious.
Avatar n tn Hello all, I just noticed today I had a red rash on my back and I have no idea what it is. Also I am not one to have pimples on my back but within the rash I seemto have 2. I do not have time to go to the dermatologist as I am under a heavy workload (obviously I will go if needed but im turning here first). Here's a picture of the rash I noticed on my upper back. Please any insight u can give would be greatly appreciated. Is this anything to worry about?

Avatar f tn Hi, I work at a tanning salon. So once I got this rash on my back I thought it could be ringworm. It was really itchy and once I itch it it got bigger. Was red in the middle and white on the outside almost in a circle. Thats why I thought it was ringworm. Well now I'm getting it all over my back and a spot on my stomach. Nothing I'm putting on it is helping it or helping the itch. And like I said once I itch it gets bigger. What can this be? I've never had this before.

Avatar m tn Ok, so about 2 months ago i returned from a vacation to Mexico City, when i started developing a rash on my lower back which started with a mosquito bite feeling bump (it itched). I had not had sexual intercourse for almost 9 months, and she was a virgin (seriously) we were both each other's first. I was prescribed an antibiotic for what almost looked like a pilonidal cyst. The rash went away for what seemed completely for a while, but then the bump had returned.
Avatar f tn i have a spotty rash on my lower back where my shirt gets tight. it doesn't itch or hurt and it has started to appear under where the wire of my bra sits. it like of is like large red spots and they have been there for about 6 months now. and sometimes they go away but other times they flare up but the light red spots still stay there always. is this like a fungus or heat rash or something?
Avatar n tn I have an American Bulldog, he has a rash on both back legs and he is constantly chewing/scratching at them. Are there things I can try to make this go away. The vet wants to try different antibiotics but has no idea as well. His food he eats is Kibbles and Bits dry food but he has been eating this for about 6 months and this rash has just occured. Any suggestions would help.
Avatar n tn then monday I realized I had some sort of rash in my back. A bit in the lower region and on the sides near back ribcage and near neck. Not all red but more like like bumps in my skin... Also my back feels like it's on fire... I had sex with a prostitute not too long ago but used condoms but I read that this could be a sign of HIV. I have herpes so this really made me scared...
Avatar m tn I have been getting this rash primarily on the back of my hands as well as my elbows for the last 10 years or so. The rash is not itchy and consists of small red bumps which are swelled and after a week or so start drying out starting from the middle and working its way out. While this is going on small rings develop since the edges are swelled slightly while the middle is drying and swelling going down. I have been to several dermatologists and none of them have offered any explanations.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to folliculitis or acne on back. Back and shoulder acne are quite difficult to treat compared to acne on other parts of the body. Thoroughly wash your body everyday, especially the back and shoulder part using a back brush and frequently change your bed sheet, as it is conducive for bacterial growth. Engage in a diet that is low in sugar and fat but is rich in vitamins. This prevents acne by preventing the buildup of excess oil on the skin.
Avatar m tn my fiance has a rash on his chest and back. It started on his neck and back, then moved to his entire upper body. We have used cortisone creams and oatmeal baths. They work for a short amount of time but the rash has lasted almost 2 weeks and is barely begun to fade. He says it itches but doesn't hurt. It also doesn't seem to be contagious. Do you have any ideas?
