Common Questions and Answers about Red rash not raised

rash

Avatar f tn I have a red, raised circle. It isn't a ring; it's about the size of a quarter on my upper thigh, and is not itchy. It is sore and is almost completely red, with some very small spots inside of it that aren't. It does not look like ringworm, it is not scaly. Any ideas what it could be?
Avatar f tn 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 sometimes by itching. Psoriasis is a long-term (chronic) skin problem that causes skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin.It is thought that psoriasis occurs when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and flaking of skin. I hope it helps.
Avatar n tn Hi A few weeks ago, I noticed this almost perfectly round bruise type mark on my ankle. It doesn't hurt, and it's not raised at all. I thought nothing of it and just left it. Today I noticed another one about an inch away from the other and it's the same size and shape. I don't wear shoes that go up that high and I don't wear socks in the summer. There's nothing that comes in contact with that area of my ankle so it's really odd. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn I have never been tested for stds and had a high risk encounter 3 weeks ago. about a week ago I got this small cluster of raised red bumps that did not itch on the front of my shoulder and they disappeared and hour later. Today again, I got this small cluster of raised red bumps on the front of my left shoulder and again they are gone in about an hour. any idea?
Avatar m tn 00 pm and it is not the same at all. The rash is not in the same places either. Today it started in the inside of my elbows and spread from one to the other and itches and is red. I have these places on both sides of my lower hip that are bright red, raised, and irregular. I have a similar area in the middle of my stomach above my belly button with lighter colored centers. There are smaller spots on my sides, on the outside of one of my lower arms, and the inside of my knees.
Avatar m tn It started out as a raised bump on each side of my groin area and then had a red slightly raised rash around it. It did not really hurt. I went to the doctors about 4 days later. He said the the raised singular bump on each side appeared to be warts. I had them a few months prior. He said the rash was probably a yeast infection. The rash seemed to heal within 2 weeks. I can still tell where the rash is as the skin is still red.
Avatar n tn A sweat rash may red and raised and they may occur in covered areas of the body. These may be any of the above. At this point,a red rash may also be infectious. The presence of a fever, eye redness, enlarged nodes in the body may actually signify a viral infection .This does not seem to be your child's case. Continue to observe the rash. Application of 1% hydrocortisone cream thinly over the rash and see if it responds may be able to help.
Avatar m tn It has small, raised, almost clear looking bumps on the red patch. Maybe about 10 bumps total or so. That is the only spot on her body. I noticed it a few days ago. Today, my daughter threw up several times and can't keep anything down. I'm not sure if they are related, or she could of had a stomach bug that was unrelated. Should I take her to the doctor to get the rash checked out?
Avatar n tn thank you, honstly tho im incredibly sure its not shingles.. the raised bumps do not contain any fluid and are not really painfull the bumps look more like small hives but i know hives are much larger and usually affect large areas ..anyother suggestions ????
Avatar f tn I looked right under the rim of the tip of my penis and it had a white skit looking stuff that seemed to peel a little so I rubbed that away and a red shiny area was under it. Nothing raised just red. It stayed that way for about a week. I started freaking out and stressing really bad so I asked the girl if she had anything I should know about and she said no.

Avatar n tn Hello, Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. Take non-sedating antihistamines such as Cetirizine(Zyrtec) or Loratadine(Claritin)to get symptom relief. Sedating antihistamines such as Chlorphenamine(Benadryl) are used at night to get urticaria control. Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms.
Avatar f tn After a few days, a rash appears as a band or patch of raised dots on the side of the trunk or face. The rash develops into small, fluid-filled blisters which begin to dry out and crust over within several days. When the rash is at its peak, symptoms can range from mild itching to extreme and intense pain. Treatment of shingles includes antiviral drugs, steroids, analgesics and anti viral eye drops.

713471 tn?1229568771 I recently developed a strange burn like rash on my forehead. At first, I thought it was a big zit forming, but it continued to grow bigger. It feels like a burn and looks like a burn but I never burnt myself, and it's been there for a week. I'm wondering if maybe it is a spider bite or something. I really don't know what to do about it, and it's not going away. It's pretty raised, oddly shaped, red, bumpy, burns, and hurts if I touch it. Please help me out.
Avatar f tn For about 3 weeks now I've had a small patch of little raised red bumps on my left knee. They are surrounding a small scar. They don't itch at all, and at first I thought they were just stress hives (which I get often) so I applied cortisone cream daily. They didn't go away. They don't hurt or anything like that, and so far, haven't spread. I'm wondering if I should go see a dermatologist or just wait and see if they go away.
Avatar m tn t work i started to see some of these bumps that the color is red and when they heel they peel from center it is not raised and no liquid inside just like a patch so i called my doc in my home he prescribed for me lotriderme creme and nizoral shampoo and nizoral tablets and aerius tablets, so when i started the treatment the one they are between my legs has gone the old one on my stomach and my hand also are gone but new ones start to appear in different places , under my armpit under my stomach
Avatar n tn i have few slightly raised bumps on my hand and arm. I am worrying that this might be something else. They look like red rashes and I don't know what causes them. It doesn't look like an allergy coz they don't appear in groups, they eventually go away but now, they came back. They don't look like pimples either. What could be causing these red bumps?
Avatar m tn Hi, i have had oral sex (receiving) from few partners, and had previous outbreaks of cold-sores. however, last week, i noticed a rash starting to spread around my thighs and even to my calf and ankles. they're red, and not bumps or raised. they're pretty small, almost the size of a pimple... i also noticed around 5 small raised bumps on my penis foreskin, though they're not as red as the rashes on my legs, and have no pus or fluid in them. does this sounds like hsv 2 to anyone?
Avatar f tn Thanks Chance. I have 3 full symtpms of Lupus, and I would count 4 with the rash on my nose and cheeks--but not sure if it's butterfly rash. I'm not on anything. But I will research it.
Avatar n tn About 8 weeks ago I got a rash on the head of my penis(around the edge), and it was red and had raised edges. a day after it started, I put a jock itch creme on it, and the raised edges went away, and the darkness of the rash went away. No burning, no itching, other than the rash, the only other thing that seems abnormal is that all the veins on the penis when it is erect are very red. But the rash wouldn't go away. After a few days I started putting hydrocrotisone 1% on it.
Avatar m tn Herpes would not appear so quickly and probably not as a widespread rash as you describe. When you say welts though, do you mean red rash with raised bumps like a mosquito bite? No fluid or anything inside? If that's the case, it sounds like an immune allergic reaction, try some antihistamine tablets and see what happens. Of course follow up with a doctor when you can.
Avatar f tn I have an itchy blotchy rash on my back, with several raised bumps (there are no blisters/heads to them). The whole red area is about the size of the palm of my hand, excluding my fingers. It started a couple months ago as a couple bumps where my bra strap is sewn into the back part of my bra (note:not a new bra). I really thought it was just the bra that was itching and tried several different bras (new & old).
Avatar n tn In the past, his problem areas have been slightly raised, red and feel very dry. Today, I noticed about 50 small red spots all over his upper and lower abdomen. He has also had diarrhea the past two days. The abdomen doesn't seem to itch or bother him in any way and the spots are not raised. What could this be?
Avatar m tn In the past 6 or so months, every so often I have a red rash appear on the head of my penis. I have made a link that the rash only really occurs when there is semen present under the foreskin of my uncircumsized penis (eg. from post-cum after masturbation). I practise good hygiene so it's not like i leave this festering for hours and hours, the rash can appear as little as a couple of hours after the semen being present within the foreskin.
