Unlikely: There are many more likely causes for what you describe: Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) is common in Winter as are other dry skin issues. Try an OTC cream - ask pharmacist for recommendations - if it gets worse do have an PCP exam - but those locations are not often shingles. Look at online photos and relax. Best!

I have been getting clusters of two or three raised bumps on my arm and shoulders they do not pop and are not red inflamed the spots are too big t be kp and I have had folliculitis before and know that this is not it any suggestions on what it could be?

Keratosis pilaris: Keratosis pilaris comes in a variety of sizes, so unless the bumps are huge, it could still be kp. There are also various kinds of folliculitis, so you can't rule that out either. There are other, more esoteric possibilities, but you will have to be examined directly by a dermatologist to know for sure.

Infection: Description is consistent with staph infection. Cleaning with anitbcterial soap can help. You should be seen fr evaluation and probable prescription of antibiotic.

There are strange bumps appearing on my arms, legs, hands, and feet in groups of three. They itch like crazy and won't go away. What are they?

Probably bedbugs: If you stayed in a hotel recently, good chance you picked it up there. If you look carefully, you can usually see them. They are tough to get rid of. Get professional exterminator.

Have it evaluated: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Rash is a rash: Short answer is you need to get yourself to a doctor, who can gather pertinent history and visualize this rash then determine the next step. Otherwise it is almost impossible to give a diagnosis with a simple description. Hope this helps. This is also what HealthTap doctors do. Pay for the service and get treatment! :)

Infection: This is possibly a viral infection or bacterial which should be seen by your physician. I would recommend going to the physician today. You may need antibiotics or other treatment but with the symptoms that you described it needs to be evaluated soon

I Have small red bumps sporadically around my legs, hips, and arms but only around a total of 10-15 over all areas and three just appeared on the roof of my mouth. They're almost like what a pimple that just started to form looks like. Completely red, no

I Have small red bumps sporadically around my legs, hips, and arms but only around a total of 10-15 over all areas and three just appeared on the roof of my mouth. They're almost like what a pimple that just started to form looks like. Completely red, no

Papules: It really sounds as if you have two from us. I cannot envision what are the bumps on the roof of the mouth would relate to the bumps on your skin. But there are such conditions, they just need to be evaluated personally. The most important asset of a dermatologist is his/her eyes, so you need to have this rash evaluated.

I've had a bump on my chest for a while now and now I have three of them. They are bright red and are itchy. I noticed one of my elbow last week.

I've had a bump on my chest for a while now and now I have three of them. They are bright red and are itchy. I noticed one of my elbow last week.

Likely benign: Could be hair follicles underneath the skin (folliculitis)....Although if the one on the elbow is related then, who knows....Unless you have hairy elbows....At any rate, just keep them cleansed with neutral and water for the time being and get an appointment with your doctor to make sure they don't need treatment.

My son has a rock hard bump under the skin of his forearm it is not outside noticable but you can feel its very hard what is it? It is a hard bump under his forearm. He was playing and barley bumped it when he was playing with his lil brother. He is three

The: The most important question here is if the lump was present prior to the incident where he bumped his arm. This is a common, the discovery of a lesion that is thought to be from the injury that occurred but was actually present prior to that. The bottom line here is to have your son evaluated by his primary care provider. It may just be a simple cyst or lipoma, however it needs to be seen. Best of luck.

I developed tiny red wart-like bumps on my forearm. It's been three days and it hasn't spread and I have not itched it. Could this be scabies?

I developed tiny red wart-like bumps on my forearm. It's been three days and it hasn't spread and I have not itched it. Could this be scabies?

NO: This is not scabies. This is not the appearance of scabies. NO ITCH = NO SCABIES. Have you been exposed to scabies? If so, you need to be treated before you become itchy. It is imperative to treat all contacts of any person with scabies.

My mother has three bumps under her armpit and one looks like an ulcer the other two look like the first one did initially. What could it be?

Plan: Please, make appointment with doctor for evaluation. Nobody can tell you what is this not seeing the patient. So far use triple antibiotics cream twice a day. Or bacitracin.

How can I get some bumps out of my arm I've had them for 3 years already

Dependes: It certainly depends on what the bumps are. You may be describing harmless lipomas that are resulting in a cosmetic issue for you. These will have to be removed surgicaly, and it is not likely you insurance with cover the procedures.

Bumps: It is nearly impossible to diagnose a skin condition without seeing it. I recommend a doctor visit in order to get diagnosed and treated. It could be something as simple as a wart, or something else altogether. Please get it looked at.
