Avatar n tn Hi There is a common skin condition called hives or urticaria, which causes red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin. Hives can occur anywhere on the body such as the trunk, arms, and legs. Hives are usually allergic (food, medication, cosmetics and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found. Most cases are mild and resolve on their own. They usually go away on their own.
1701959 tn?1488551541 I have red bumps on my lower legs, lots of them, this is the 4th time in 8 months I have gotten them. They do not itch but hurt to the touch, are red like pimples and are just in the front of my lower legs. They all seems to happen with 24 hours after I shave. I use new razors and shaving cream but I am not sure if I am coming in contact after with something or I am just breaking out in razor burn? I thought they maybe bug bites but they do not itch and no one else in my family gets them.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a rash that appears mostly in the summer months. It appears on my knees and ankles mostly but can also be seen on legs and feet. It's raised red spots which appear to have white around them. It has come back every year for about 6 years. I live in Ireland so the climate can get warm but not very warm and not very often. When i get to the doctor it has disappeared. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Avatar n tn My legs have like small red bruise-like spots on them.. they dont hurt or anything and about the size of a dime or smaller.. can you help me out?
Avatar m tn The question I have is what are some possible reasons I could be having additional rash continuing to spread on both legs? The newer rash ranges between looking like the red, raised lines of the jellyfish sting and smaller, singular red bumps. It is in a bout 5 different spots including both legs and my groin. The lymph nodes in my groin have also felt enlarged this whole time, as my body has been fighting all this off. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated!
1757817 tn?1312745799 Over time I have developed red dots, first a few, nor there are beginning to cover my legs, upper arms and so on..........bigger ones on my stomach. I thought it had something to do with menopause? Now i relaize it is probably a bit more involved. Any ideas...............?
652407 tn?1300737199 I have over the past year had an increase in these red dots on my skin. some of them are about a cm and some are pin point, they are light pink or red. They are flat and do not both me except for the sight of them. the are mostly on my hands but I have two on my upper chest and about four-five cmm ones on my legs. Any Idea what these are?
Avatar m tn It is caused by an allergy, or by over dry skin. They say to not use to hot water on your skin and not let it get too dry. Always keep it hydrated with a coating of one of these products. I also use a topical steroid on my hands. But it is best if you don't get started down that road if you can. There is a specialist at USC that says that you sweat glands get clogged and sitting in the sun is better than using a steroid and it will get the sweat glands working again.
Avatar n tn Why is my skin rough and bumpy on my legs. I've all types of lotions and luffas to solve this problem and I don't know what else to do. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/243217'>little red bumps on arms legs</a>.
Avatar f tn Hi. I've been getting some red spots/dots on my skin. Not itchy. It is mostly on my arms, chest, back and upper legs. Do you have an idea what might be the cause and a possible cure? Is there some place where I can upload a photo?
313193 tn?1194192298 I started to get little red spots on the back of my legs and wondered what they were, whether they was a cause of going on the sunbeds, i lost some hair around the spots too but it grew back sooner or later.
Avatar f tn I have had small red dots on my arms and tops of my legs for as long as i could remember. They are everywhere not just in random places. The ones on my arms have gotten lighter but havent disappeared. Later ones on my stomach appeared also. These ones are raised more than the ones on my arms and legs. They do not itch or hurt but are unattractive and i need an answer. Its hard to wear shorts and skirts or a bathing suit because people ask if i have goose bumps when i do not.
Avatar f tn A month ago, I got these little red dots on my back and stomach. they're really itchy. suddenly, they've transferred into my arms and legs. after sometime they're gone, my skin became "chicken skin". and now when I feel itchy and scratched my legs, red itchy bumps will appear. They're like mosquito bites. But when I stop scratching, they will be gone after few minutes. What could these be?

Avatar m tn for the past couple months, i have been waking up with several red spots/blotches on my skin. sometimes on my arms, hands, shoulders and occasionally on my legs. for weeks i thought they were bug bites and tried and failed to find any bugs. then i thought it was allergy, but changing soap and laundry detergent had no effect. the red spots are not raised at all, and look more like little burn marks, and they do not usually itch at all, although if i get them on my hands they itch slightly.
Avatar n tn i have had these red dots all over my legs/arms for a while now. i haven't gone to a doctor about it yet.. i'm 13 years old and haven't been able to wear any leg revealing clothes for a year now because of this. i put a picture up of what's on my legs and it's pretty much the same thing on my arms. i do wear loose fit clothes whenever i'm home now though (my mom told me it could be skin irritation caused by tight pants) and i'm home pretty much every day but weekends.
