I have been breaking out with these bumps all over my body in different places. A bump will appear and get bigger and come to a head and start draining a clear liquid. This all happens over a period of a week or so. Do you have any idea what it could be?

That : That is a concerning history there are multiple skin conditions that can cause this. Do you have a history of MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus)? You need to have this evaluated and that is very important. If you develop redness, red streaks, swelling or fever, or any shortness of breath, then you must be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Rash: Without seeing it is incredibly difficult to posit what is going on. It sounds like a rash but from what I have no idea. Any new exposures? New creams, makeup, wash? Any bumps on other parts of your skin? What about other types of rashes. Certain dermatophytes can cause an 'Id' reaction in other areas on the skin. See your doctor or a dermatologist if it persists. ...Read more

Get checked out: Coughs after a viral illness may last for weeks, but you need to get her checked out to make sure that it is nothing else. With the resurgence of things like whooping cough, coughs over a week to 10 days need to be checked. Use a humidifier, lots of fluid intake and aoid respiratory irritants like smoke. Also, get your thermometer checked - ? Reading low. Bumps may be result of infection. ...Read more

With poison ivy you get blisters. ...Read more
