Itchy bumps that turn to pimples that turn to scabs. Only on stomach. Not a home allergy, as everyone at work (a restaurant) seems to get these bites.

Bites: That is a big concern. If that is only happening to the staff you must have the boss close down the restaurant and have a team come in and get rid of the causes of bites.
This is even a bigger concern if folks coming in for food and drink also have the bites.
MUST BE DONE ASAP!! ...Read more

Acne? Medication?: Thanks for uploading that photo - I was able to see it. The pustules are all a very similar size -- were they a result of a topical medication you might have applied to the area previously? Did you receive any oral medications that preceded the onset of this rash? There are many causes for such an eruption and a proper evaluation and examination by a medical provider would be essential. ...Read more

Luteal phase. ..: You describe symptoms that can occur in the second half of your menstrual cycle (the luteal phase) after you ovulate or release an egg. Progesterone hormone is made by your ovaries and causes the breakouts, breast tenderness and bloating.

I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

Many possibilities: Any of several skin conditions could cause this. Although people often assume insect bites, it's an uncommon cause. But I do wonder about scabies, or perhaps pubic lice (crabs). Or folliculitis, i.e. hair follicle inflammation, especially if you shave the area. No STD is a likely cause. See a doctor or clinic if more spots keep appearing or if not clearing up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

The acne, or sweating itself, or some other cause may account for the itching. ...Read more

Allergy: It's possible that the serum in the original bite contained material that caused additional allergic reactions in the surrounding skin. Have you applied cortisone type cream to the rash? Taking an antihistamine like benadryl (may cause drowsiness) will also help the reaction and the itch. If redness and burning appear you may be developing cellulitis which requires antibiotic medication and cream. ...Read more

Pimple like bump on side of foot that are itchy. Bumpy but itches like a mosquito bite. What is this?

Hard to say without: Seeing it. It could be a contact rash to something. Is it only on one foot? Any new creams, lotions, shoes? Do you have the rash anywhere else? I would recommend that you have it seen by your primary care doctor or a dermatologist, so that it can be diagnosed properly.

Unlikely: Most common lesion on the back as you described is a pimple or sebaceous cyst. Both of which are localized skin infections/inflammations. A spider bite could occur on back but is less likely. A spider bite could get infected or it could cause tissue necrosis as with the brown recluse spider bites.

Tiny itchy pimple like bump on arm. Leaking clear fluid. Might be a mosquito bite. What could be causing the fluid?

Skin irritation: Any time you have significant enough skin irritation, the cells in the skin can make extra fluids to try and sooth/protect it. Think of when you burn yourself and you get a fluid filled blister - same thing. Keep area clean and monitor for redness. If drainage becomes purulent or area gets red, then seek medical care. ...Read more

I think I got a heat rash on my neck from the heat a few days ago. The bumps are either red or look like whiteheads and are super itchy What can I do?

Heat Rash: A heat rash is usually red and non itchy. It often resolves with a cool compress and getting out of the heat. The fact that the rash is persisting and contains whit bumps suggests you were in contact with something you may be sensitive to. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and a mild hydrocortisone cream topically to see if this helps. Follow up with your doctor. All the best. ...Read more
