Need exam: Unfortunately we cannot really diagnose and Treat on HealthTap, especially with rashes over the computer. See the Dr. for an examination of the bumps as the treatment depends on the diagnosis. HealthTap Prime is a payed service and can possibly assist you with a video consult, or take to the Regular Dr. Good luck.

Maybe, can't say: Dermatology diagnoses are typically made visually. Then re-examined, or biopsied and looked via microscope, often with special stains, then blood tests are drawn. Hives, bites, viral rashes, contact allergy, medication allergy, too many possibilities here; get seen by provider. Use antihistamines first, low dose topicsl steroids. Think about possible exposure: plants, cosmetics, adhesives, etc.
