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.

I have a rash on stomach, back, and shoulder. It's red bumps that are individual and not together. They are raised up and are now starting to itch.

Folliculitis: It sounds as though it could be a folliculitis which is an inflammation around the hair follicles. They're little red bumps which may or may not be itchy.

The red bumps in the back are most likely taste buds. If in doubt, see doc. ...Read more
