Rash on my back

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on my back


Avatar n tn In the center of my back about an inch below my bra line, there is a small patch of rash. It first started as small pimple-looking bumps and slowly got better... Well, so I thought. Just as I thought they were going away, it turned into a rough patch that itches but I can't scratch it because when I do, it hurts so bad. There are four stray bumps of the same type on my stomach, but they are no where else on my body.

I tried sarna anti itch lotion and it seemed to get worse. I went to emergency and they said it was contact dermatitis and perscribed hydrocortizone cream that did not work and I went back.

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 n tn Hi! I have had an itchy rash on the back of my head for the past 8 years. It is reddish, mostly flat with some raised bumps (some become pimples). There are areas of red that coalesce and thicker areas of skin. I have tried washing with Selsun Blue shampoo before, and occasionally tried Clindamycin gel on my skin with little improvement. Can anyone suggest a diagnosis and a cure? I have included the picture below.

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.

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.

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 Mine appears on the inside of my arms, the backs of my knees, down my rib cage sides, lower back,and now on my ankles.The itching is so severe at times that it bleeds. And it still itches! Through numerous visits to my dermatologist and PCP, no answers were found either. BUT, I found a website to help me that I know you will be VERY interested in! It has worked miracles for me! Click on Freederm .com and go from there. I promise you that you won't be sorry!

Avatar n tn What kind of virus causes pimple like rash on my daughters hands arms legs and feet? with fever will it go away how long will it last? will it come back? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/240507'>pimples on four-year-old</a>.
Avatar m tn I agree with Pooh's advice and I used the same meds for my rash (pics on my profile where you can see the effects of the meds). One member, Dresden O, the original poster in Pooh's link, admitted himself to the hospital due to his severe rash. You're right in resolving not to give up so just be highly proactive in getting the rash under control. I hope it gets better for you and I feel for you.

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...
