Avatar n tn My son is 15 and about one year ago I noticed markings on his lower back. I thought is was from him leaning on the back of our dinning room chair because the marking were red and pressed in, about one inch in width and there was a large red bump on his spine. Over the course of one year he has about 15 marking on his back and they now look like stretch mark slits, one inch in width ranging down the middle to lower back.
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 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.

1485372 tn?1359545131 Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus.
Avatar f tn The rash is probably NOT due to HIV, since HIV rashes do not itch at all.
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 f tn I have a very small rash on my upper back right in the center that appeared 4/5 days ago. The rash appears as small circles and does not itch. It disappears with Allegra allergy meds but hasn’t gone away. The circles are perhaps smaller than a nickel and there is only maybe 4 of them and are light in color. Is there any way this could be related to an STD/STI?
Avatar f tn I dont think i need anything stronger then what is sold over the counter considering its only on my upper back. The itching only comes when my back is exposed to the sun for a long period of time. My fear is that when it is treated and the spots do go away, will they come back? i live in miami florida and it is rather hard to keep my back out of the sun. Of course i will take precautionary care so this wont happen, but is there maybe an allergy pill i can take?
Avatar n tn i have a non itchy rash on my inner thigh and back of my calf. It started low and kept going higher. The calf rash is small and round but the thigh rash is a little larger and more blotchy.
1731798 tn?1310253152 I came out of shower and got burning rash on back of neck still present 24 hours later very sore and red- like weals have had an outbreak of Urticaria in past which lasted some months on chest and sides of trunk.
Avatar m tn It started on my back and has now appeared on my shoulders and upper arms. The rash is smooth and does not itch. It is also not a continuous rash, but appears in isolated splotches. I do not have health insurance, and plan to go to a walk in clinic in my area sometime during the week, but am trying to see if it is something I really need to be worried about. This hasn't been a huge deal to me until the past couple of days when I noticed a new spot on my right arm.
Avatar f tn I have this brownish rash on my back, it starts off as a small spot that itch and as soon I scratch it, it starts to spread. I treated it with ointment, the first time and it went away, Now its back and there's more. It looks like my skin is burn.It really itches and I'm wonder can this be serious?
Avatar n tn I had a spot come up on my lower back a few years ago, that recurred infrequently-maybe 3 times. Always in the same spot, small blisters. It hasn't occurred in at least 8 years. I recently tested positive for hsv-2 and my ob suspects the spot on my back is actually herpes. I've never had any cold sores, fever blisters, etc. on my mouth or genitally. I'm in the process of beginning a new sexual relationship and this, naturally, has caused some concern.
583387 tn?1219627212 I am looking for a possible cause or explanation of growths/lumps on the back of the head about 2 inches from the hairline from the ear. One on the right is about the size of a Hershey kiss and the left one is about the size of a marble. They are not red, scaly or in any way visually showing any symptoms. The areas are not painful unless pressed and have just "appeared" on my 15 year old daughter.
