Red bumps on back rash

Common Questions and Answers about Red bumps on back rash


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 m tn Hives or urticaria is a condition which causes red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin. Hives can occur anywhere on the body such as the trunk, arms, and legs. They are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found. They usually go away on their own. The most commonly used oral treatments are antihistaminics (such as cetirizine, loratidine, benadryl available over the counter).
Avatar m tn Today our grandson, 4 years old, has red spots on his belly and back and on his legs. How can we tell is these are insect bites, bug bites or chicken pox? He does not complain, but we don't want to take him to sunday school and infect the other children of it is more than a bug bite. The bumps are a bit raised, no fever and not complaint of discomfort.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be an allergic reaction to some unknown substance or dermatitis or eczema or insect bites. You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites, use a medicated sunscreen whenever you go out. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine.
Avatar f tn faded to a red rash, almost like mild broken blood vessels. When I finally moved back to California, the rash went away and hasn't been back. As far as medical conditions go, the only thing that comes to mind is psoriasis, but your doctor would be able to diagnose that better than I can =) It may also be as simple as an allergy to something you're using - have you changed body wash, soap, or laundry detergent recently?
Avatar n tn About a month ago, i was in the shower and i noticed several (15-20) small in size, scattered red bumps in my pubic hair region.. Shortly after noticing the bumps i developed a rash on my inner thighs, on both sides near my testicles.. The only thing causing discomfort would be the rash, the small red bumps look like they have white heads in them. I picked at one of them and a small round white looking ball came out of the center of it. No puss and no pain, and it bleed for awhile.

Avatar m tn Here goes, my question, I had around 12 - 15 red painless non ithcy red bumos on my upper back, and some really small light red bumps as well. they were on my upper back, and sides of my middle back. It has been about a moth since I saw them first, and still can see some marks of them, but they have gone most of them, also some new ones appeared, maybe 2 or 3, 3 of them appeared om one sied of my trunk. My question is, can this be considered a rash? Could this be ARS related?
Avatar f tn For about a month I have have small red aka bumps appear first on my stomach about five in different places then cont to my back.
Avatar m tn The first morning i had two on my face, one on my back, and one on my collarbone. The next morning i got another on my back and two on my head under my hair. this morning i got another one on my back, one on my upper stomach, and one one the underside of my forearm. they're not acne and not chicken pox, they itch and are sore at the same time. please help! :) thanks.
Avatar m tn We have sex alteast once per day. I recently have noticed about 20 red pimple like bumps on my penis shaft. There is no swelling or irritation. We have both been tested for std's since we have been together and mine came back clean. She was told she has hpv but her doctor assured me that it would not affect me. We recently went swimming in a newly cleaned pool and it irritated her vagina area (itching) and i was wondering what these could be. Could it be from the pool, too much sex, etc.
Avatar m tn There not filled with any puss and they don't itch, and today, i noticed the same bumps on my upper thighs and groin, along with my back. I have no idea what is happening, and I havent changed anything in my diet, I haven't gone anywhere and things haven't changed at all from before this was far as I know I'm not allergic to anything but I have psoriasis if that helps.
1527614 tn?1291735920 About a month ago, I saw a red dot on my upper shoulder, then it spread about 2 wks ago. Last week, i get red dots on my upper chest, lower back and now on my thighs.. It doesn't itch, hurt or anything.. I started taking benadryl on tuesday of last week and they turned redder this week and alot more came. Now, about a month ago I did change from Tide to Surf laundry detergernt.. Please help me!! What is my next step? Do I continue with Benadry and neosproine?
Avatar n tn Where the rash stoped there was a rough line outlining where my normal skin began again (that line was a brighter red color).. On the upper lip, same deal, + little whitish bumps on one side of the lip. I keep putting Aquafor to calm it down or else it would burn all the time but when I brush my teeth, Use listerine or eat salty/spicy foods, its burns so much. I've had it almost 2 weeks now .. any ideas?
Avatar n tn However, there are only one or two on my legs and scarcely any on my arms. Technically, these bumps don't really look red, but a dull, dark pinkish or a dull light pinkish, depending on how long the spots have been there. It is like, um, crusted. You know, dry skin around it. Oh and I had this some time ago, and it went down after I went to the doctor and had some cream. But now, it is back again (Just noticed it...
Avatar f tn I had a blood test and results came back negative for both types. Since then I have developed a bunch of small red bumps on my butt cheeks. They are spread around and aren't in clusters. They don't hurt or itch and they don't seem to resemble pimples. I'm concerned that maybe my test results were wrong and that it might be herpes. Another reason I'm concerned they're herpes is because I'm pretty sure they appeared the day after I had sex, i read online that sex can bring on an outbreak.
1224651 tn?1267068395 At first they were scattered; a few on the inside of my arm, one on my scalp, a couple on my breasts, a couple on my back, then one just near my pubic area and a couple on my neck. Today I have them all over the sides of my breasts and near my underarms. I did a search and it looks JUST like folliculitis, but the random locations of the bumps doesn't really correspond to that. I also thought it might be scabies, but it only itches mildly.
Avatar f tn I just wanted to know what it mean when you have a small group of red bumps at the top of you breast. Like close to the cleaveage area. Oh, and one of the bumps had a small amount of pus in it.
Avatar n tn Got em - red bumps, skin tags, scraggly thingies growing like cabbage - real attractive! I am keeping the high neckline shirts going until the sweat comes out my pantslegs! Wasnt "Red Bumps on Neck" an old Willie Nelson song.

Avatar n tn is it better that the pimples are not on the rash? the rash is on the shaft right below the rim whereas the pimples are on the head... thanks again for your help. Also, what's your expertise in herpes & other STDs? you seem to comment on a lot of the posts and your help is much appreciated.
Avatar n tn About 3 days ago I noticed 4 red bumps (approx .5mm) on the base of my penis, the tip of my penis, and on the shaft. They were painless and did not itch at all. The bumps have since disapeared (in two days), but now there is a red irritation on the top of my right testicle about the size of a dime. I cannot be certain if there is fluid present or not, but there is definitly a disruption of the skin of some sort. The irritation did not occur in a location that a red bump had previously been.
Avatar m tn for an explanation of why. And I take back my earlier advice of warm compresses, etc. For a rash that bad, you need to see your doctor promptly. Its not an std, but might be a bad staph infection, and you might need an antibiotic. From now on, lets keep this to one thread. I understand why you started another, but pick one of these to stick with. To respond, scroll down, and type your response under "comment" and then click the green "post comment" button.
