Leech Bite?: It is actually rare to be allergic or to have a reaction to a leech bite. Assuming it was a leech bite, you could have some irritation and itching, but normally should have no further problems if you have good health and no leech allergies. However, if you are experiencing symptoms such as you describe, then you need to seek medical attention as it may be infected. ...Read more

Many causes: Rashes are challenging even when the doctor can see them, so even harder in this forum. Small red bumps on both legs make me think of reactions to clothes, or something in contact with that area on both sides. Bites can do it. It could be heat rash, a reaction of the skin to warmth and occlusion from pressure. Some drug reactions can do that as can conditions like eczema and psoriasis. ...Read more
2 bites on right calf, small white blisters i the center, red and swollen around the blisters. Hard knot under the skin. Itches. No fever.
Fire ant bites: Most likely fire ant bites, they will go away without treatment in several days. The white center is not an indication of infection, so it is best not to break the blister. Just put a bandage over them to keep your little one from scratching. An over the counter antihistamine like Diphenhydramine (benadryl) will likely help the itching along with a cool compress. ...Read more

My daughter has red itchy bumps on her arms and feet. What could be the cause? She was diagnosed with a staph infection but the bumps persist. Bed bugs were mentioned but she is the only person being bitten. Could this be an allergic reaction to something
This : This is tough to answer without a picture. There are several possibilities including bites (fleas or other), eczema or allergic contact dermatitis, lichen planus, folliculitis (staph infection), and others. I doubt bed bugs given the location. I would recommend you try a moisturizer such as cerave cream twice daily and if not better after a few days consider a trip to the dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options. Bites are common in kids so that is certainly a possibility. If they are bites, avoidance plus a steroid gel might be beneficial. I hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.
Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved i would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not hives no redness cluster of small hard clear fluid filled bumps on heel of palm on both hands palms and soles of feet itchy Benadryl (diphenhydramine) no help?
A form of dermatitis: There are a few different conditions that may cause such a presentation. This could be due to an organism. But there are a variety of causes which could be due to eczema or a less common condition called pompholyx. It can be challenging to diagnose in a clinical presentation, so i'm thinking the blisters should be cultured and biopsied. Some rx's usually include a topical steroid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However if the rash gets worse or lasting for more than a couple of weeks, see your doctor. ...Read more

There are also many skin diseases that can cause bumps. I suggest being seen ...Read more
