Avatar n tn I also have little red bumps popping up on my skin. They are on my arms, legs, and belly. Like Tommy (the original question I found, same situation, they are too small to be mosquito bites, and I don't lay in the grass to get chiggers. One of the doctors said something about it being a heat rash and using benadryl cream for the itch. How can heat rash be prevented? Does suntan lotion help?

193609 tn?1292180293 He has been on the same dog food for years, and never had any skin problems. The spots resembled the spots of lyme disease, but since I wrote this, the individual spots have merged into a big rash. You can still see the dark outline of all the individual spots, but they are all touching and look like one huge spot now!!! I have no idea what is going on and can't get to the vet until tomorrow!
Avatar n tn s a burrowing mite that gets into the skin. Demodectic mange is a mite that is on all dogs, but some dogs are more succeptable to becoming a host, usually due to an immune system problem, high stress, or malnutrition. If either type of mange goes untreated, it can lead to severe skin infection. Both forms of mange are treatable, but the treatments are long. My dog is recovering from demodectic mange right now, and he will be on Ivomec for 30-40 days.
Avatar n tn I noticed today that my dog has a red splotchy rash only on his belly, where there is no fur. He was running around outside in our backyard today and eating some grass. This is his second time outside as he is pretty young, the weather has been cold. The rash looks like red lines and is not raised at all. I don't know if this would be allergies.. And I don't think that it could be poison ivy.
Avatar n tn Could be dry skin or mites, like ear mites in your dogs ears. Cats get these mites too. Check the dogs ears and if not, maybe could be simple case of dry skin or possible allergy. Check with your vet of course.
Avatar f tn By getting to bad, I mean her skin is so red and warm( more than normal), covered with a rash, and an offensive Oder. She started,from puppy stage, with Beneful puppy food. When she was about 1 1/2 yrs, I switch to Iams,(for 1 to 6 year old, about 2 weeks ago I changed her to Blue for small breed, purple bag. Her treets,are from pecto. She loves the chocolate chip, and one cookie like with, what looks like raspberries. She has only eaten dry dog food ever, and never table food. Can you help??
Avatar n tn I have a 1 year old Redbone coon hound who has a red scaly rash on his inner thighs and stomach. This appeared almost 2 months ago. I took him to the vet the first time and he told me it was fleas and to give him a flea bath, etc. I did all of this and my dog does not have a flea on him. I took him again a second time he told me it was allergies and prescribed a cortisone pill. My dog has taken all the med prescribed and he still continues to lick, scratch at this rash site.
Avatar f tn Allergy would manifest itself as a red bumpy bacterial infection (what lay people call a rash) or yeast on the skin. Usually itchy for the dog. If that's not happening then I would think possible thyroid issue which can be tested for in a simple blood test and easily treated with medication. Thyroid usually causes patchy hair loss with no other symptoms.
Avatar f tn but soon after that i guess you could say, i started to get a few red bumps on the inside of my upper thighs. they became VERY itchy. Then recently a few bumps appeared on my lower legs (calves) and im quite confused! I thought it was mosquito bites but it does not look like that! i also have dogs that sleep in my bed but i'm pretty sure flea bites don't look like that! I'm thinking about going to a deteramotologist to figure out whats wrong.
Avatar n tn Today, four days later since his bath we noticed a small dime sized red rash around his neck, about half and inch or less in size. Soon after we saw this rash we gave him a warm bath with oatmeal mixed into the water and washed him off again hoping to get rid of any of the shampoo that we previously used on him. He still drinks water regularly and eats food regularly so he doesn't have much of an appetite problem.

1757817 tn?1312745799 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 itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. Initially, a primary plaque, called a herald patch, is seen.
Avatar m tn In the past two weeks he has been losing his hair all over, and seems to have alot of bumps on him. Under his chine on his neck the pumps look like a rash, are red and pimply. I can see them there cause he has white coloration under his chin, but I can feel them on his back, and even he has them on his testicles. We live in hot hot FL and my friend's dogs lose their hair every summer in the heat, and grow it back in the winter.
Avatar m tn Hello, The purple dots can be due to petechiael spots. Petechiae are pinpoint-sized red dots under the surface of the skin. They are common after skin trauma and viral infections. They should go away in a few days. But if they persist then please consult a physician and get other causes ruled out which include allergic reaction, autoimmune diseases, thrombocytopenia, ITP or leukemias.
Avatar f tn It has made her skin red and she is losing her hair, it seems like it is itchy but not extremely itchy. and she has fleas like super bad and i dont understand why. we use flea shampoo and drops. also we thought she might have the mange but we have another dog and she hasnt got anything, her skin is clear and her coat is pretty. and the rash isnt limited to any one area.
679466 tn?1247006054 Additionally, skin infections with bacterial and yeast organisms can also cause a red rash on the groin and armpits, but usually do not improve with cortisone. Contact allergy to things such as carpet shampoos and powders and to wool carpeting occurs occasionally, but less commonly than pollen/grass allergies.
Avatar n tn I have an Akita dog who is about 7 years old he has a list of problem including occasional seizures and a thyroid problem. However now he has a bad rash/dry skin. The vets have tried everything from scrapping skin, steroid shots oral and injected antibiotcs. We use special shampoo and sprays for the rash, he has had this in the past and luckily had a great recovery but now its back and not getting better. Please help its becoming so expensive and I feel he is so uncomfortable.

Avatar n tn ve had a red rash on my penis head and sometimes even on the shaft...in some cases the skin on my penis began to shed its skin. This occurs when the skin on my penis seems to be really dry. Although it doesn't occur all the time it has a tendency to become itchy at times as well. I have tretonin cream because I have had a yeast infection before and it works after a while but then the rash and the peeling continue...what is this?
Avatar f tn It is not a heavy rash; each bump/pimple is surrounded by healthy skin without any irritation. Approximately 20 pimples are visible, about 5 of those have the whiteheads. We know he has pollen allergies that make his skin itchy; he had a cortisone shot and now he seems fine. The skin condition is new.
463595 tn?1333997222 Can anyone help - I have a raised, sore, itchy rash around the front of my neck. Dr said it is a skin infection and so on antibiotics, but each night my eyes swell, my lips are sore and my neck drives me mad with being so itchy.
Avatar n tn About a week ago I got a strange skin rash or infection on my back, Its sore and a little painful, It has delevoped small blisters. Its about the size of a half dollar. Any ideas what it could be? it dosent seem to be going away.
Avatar f tn My dog was out in the woods. We don't see any ticks on her (but they are in those woods) and we don't see any bite marks. She has a big, round red rash on her underside in the crease of her rear leg, and it feels very hot.
Avatar f tn Hi Ghilly...my silky terrier has skin problems, too, and so many good dog foods I tried on him caused him to have either a rash or red blotches. I finally decided it's the fish most good dog foods now have in them and I switched him to Wellness Simple Food Solutions. It's for dogs that need the least ingredients in their food. He eats it well, but, the kibble is not tiny, so, that could be a problem for Mich's chihuahua, unless he could break it up.
Avatar f tn So I went back, I was then told scabies but another doctor who only looked at my scabbed and crusty feet, not any of the new rash. I was not really sure of this diagnosis since I have had no skin to skin contact with anyone, particularly playing footsie... But I followed the advice and used permethrin 3 nights in a row to make sure it was all over my body and I didn't miss a spot. I slept at a hotel for three nights and special requested the bedding be changed each day.
1380071 tn?1279095025 I posted a question about a skin rash, loss of hair, and itching on my dogs back and belly. It was posted about a month ago. I got some great feedback, but nothing seemed to help. Hydrocortisone cream, Rx antihistamine, Benadryl, Hot Spot spray, bathing, NOTHING worked, and it continued to get worse and become very bothersome for him....to the point he was loosing weight from it. Anyways. I decided to take him to the vet, after nothing else worked.
