Rash that looks like bug bites

Common Questions and Answers about Rash that looks like bug bites


Avatar n tn They look like a lot of mosquito bites or ant bites, just some kind of bites. That is the only thing wrong with me, nothing else visible and not even a change in how I feel. It still worries me though. The "bites" don't itch at all. it seems to be some type of rash but I dont have a clue. Anyone have any ideas what this may be?
Avatar f tn Hello, This can be due to papular dermatitis of pregnancy which presents as an extremely itchy rash consisting of red, raised spots that look like insect bites. this rash can erupt at any time during pregnancy and then spots continue to appear until childbirth when they clear rapidly. Apply some calamine lotion on the rash and consult a doctor for steroids prescription if the rash persists. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn not wanting to infect my cats, after they left I did a thorough cleaning. At the time, I had no visible signs of bites - just a rash that was very itch. My cats did not show any signs of fleas then, nor do they now. In the middle of July, after the rash began to look like a series of bites (legs, arms, chest), I went to see a dermatologist. She suggested I had mites (not scabies given where the biting was) & prescribed permethrin.
10784532 tn?1412774651 I have no idea what they are and have looked at photos of brown recluse bites, bed bug bites, scabies, etc... I don't see anything that looks similar. The bumps are slightly itchy and slightly painful.
Avatar f tn many mattresses that are setup for those with allergies have plastic covers just under the sheet, so if they start to sweat for periods of time they can also develop a rash that looks like bug bites. There are other things to check but start here and if these do not pan out let me know and I will give you the next set of possibilities. I hope this helps...
Avatar n tn I know that you posted years ago, but I was wondering if you ever figured out what was causing your symmetrical, itchy bumps that look like bug bites. Reading your post, you described exactly what I'm experiencing. The bumps have mirrored from one elbow to the other, the same spot on the backs of both of my arms, the sides of both of my hands, same spot on the top of both feet, both knees, under both arms, both sides of my upper torso.
Avatar f tn About 2 days ago my arm started getting really itchy and i noticed so bumps on my arm near my elbow and it seemed to get itcher then noticed it on my other arm my legs feet and chest it looks like litte bug bites but their not always itchy but when they itch it seems like their never gonna stop i recently got over a virual infection of some sort do u think this has to do with the infection
Avatar f tn Like I said these are clusters of two or three next to each other, not widespread and spread over the torso and arms like I’ve seen in pictures (maybe 11/12 spots in total). Does the rash sometimes look like individual insect/bed bug bites? And would it usually come without a fever (I’ve measure myself temperature at its 36.1 Celsius).
Avatar f tn After a mud run this past weekend in Ormond Beach FL, I noticed a weird rash that almost looks like ant bites. Thought maybe stinging nettles or something, but the bites don't look like welts. They are irritating and uncomfortable, but I can't say they really itch or burn-more just they are tender. Benadryl and Zyrtec seem to do nothing. I'm allergic to dust so I usually take the Zyrtec anyway, used Benadryl spray. Nothing seems to help and they just look more inflamed.
Avatar f tn I looked at his neck, face and hairline, at that time, he appeared to have what looked like bug bites all over his neck, a few on his face, on his scalp and a few other areas on his arms. I gave him 2 benadryl tabs. Less than 1 hour later, he bagan complaining stating we had to leave the restaurant he was so uncomfortable. On the way home, he said it felt like his back, armpits, stomach, chest, back, scalp, buttocks, and groin area were uncomfortable and so itchy he couldn't stand it.
Avatar m tn I also developed a rash on my arms and legs which look like bug bites but burn and itch more than bug bites. All happened around 2 days after that exposure. Is this herpes 2? How do I tell. What was my risk for that exposure. Is there a test?
Avatar n tn I was not sure which topic to ask this under so if anybody else has a better place for me to post it tell me. I just got these bug bites I think they were from a type of fly that was flying around. And I have a bunch on my legs and some on my arms and one on my hand. They are red and slightly raised. They itch and hurt. When I scratch them they get bigger and red and inflamed.
Avatar m tn I was babysitting the other night and the kids wanted to play in their yard. I was watching them, and we were only out for id say 30 minutes. I came home to find a few bumps on my arm that I just shrugged about passing them off as mosquito bites. But I woke up early that morning and my whole body was burning. As the day went on, I counted 35 red, itching, burning, stinging bumps that looks like regular bug bites but they don't feel like them..
Avatar n tn There are also 2 or three on my arms, but on my lower legs it looks like there are a million bug bites. They extend down to my ankle but not really to my feet. When I stand or walk sometimes I feel pressure on my legs and it sort of hurts. Each one looks like a little red bug bite. They aren't really itchy but they are itchy places once in a while (one time in a day). I got all of the rashes over night.
Avatar m tn I spotted some old scars on her skin in lower abdominal and lower back of her body. Some of them look like healed bug bites and some of them like rash. She was unknown lady and only one time I had sex and it was last within 20min. I use condom and take care to protect. However 3 days before I had small rash on my left thigh and it is bit itching. I don't have any other symptoms. It looks dry and very tiny dry blister around the small round shape spot.
Avatar f tn About 3 months ago my boyfriend developed a blotchy white welt like rash on his thumb that burned and itched and as soon as he put cold water on it, the welt like rash appeared. Again last night it happened but this time it was all over his hand. The rash disappears and is asymptomatic after 30 minutes to an hour... I have never heard of anything like this. Has anyone had this problem or know what is causing it.
1794671 tn?1338795391 I have this weird rash, but it doesn't seem like a typical rash? It definitely is NOT PUPPP and it isn't bug bites, BUT it looks like spider bites.. there are 7 little round rashes on my back.. 3 on my arm that are huge mostly because I have been itching them.. and some on my leg but they are not in like clusters? Anyone know what it is? Allergic reaction? Why would it be in small amounts in weird places.. and not clumping together when I scratch them? so weird..
Avatar n tn Bed bug bites are small, and there are normally many in a row. Also there will be many bites than just a couple most of the time. I had bed bugs once and had so many I mistook it for a bad rash because the bites didn't really look like bites. So you could just have a misquote running around or maybe a spider.
Avatar m tn They concern me less because i was in the woods and they look a little like those bug bites where the bug burrows in the skin....not sure what its called. Its just really random....its never happened before but im worried.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the response. I'm 22 and not on any kind of medication, nor do I have any health problems (that I know of). I've never had allergies before either. Since their appearance 5-6 days ago, they have slowly started to go away. I didn't develop any kind of irritation like burning or itching at all. I picked at the tiny white (which came out clear) tops of each bite or whatever they were and after that, they just started to clear up.
Avatar f tn what does it look like is it redish like a rash or is it little bumpes that almost look like a white bug bite or is it rashy and red but almost seems like dry skin paches?
