Doctor can evaluate: Bumps and rashes are difficult to visualize in words. Rashes or bumps may be folliculitis, which is an infection in the little hair follicles in the skin. Rashes that itch a lot may be allergic reactions and/or skin infections. An STD is possible. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate to decide on a diagnosis and talk about treatment options.
