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.

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.

Everytime I drink alcohol I break out the next day with bumps all over my body. Am I allergic to alcohol?

Yes and No: Alcohol decreases the threshold for allergy cell activation. With a shorter "fuze" your allergy cells are more likely to be provoked into a reaction and cause a break out. All that's left is to find out what's out there pushing your allergy cells (mast cells) to act out.... See a friendly allergist for help.

Avoid the sun: Unfortunately you either have a bad case of heat rash or photosensitivity. The only thing to do is wear well-ventilated clothing (athletic quick dry moisture-wicking clothing is great) and avoid the sun. You might need to wear long sleeves even in summer, which I do. Talk to your doctor for more information. You only need 20 minutes of sun a day for vitamin D, or take supplement.

It: It sounds like it may be follicultis, but please google folliculitis and see if it looks like your condition. Rashes are very hard to diagnose without seeing them, so I would highly advise that you see a dermatologist. You can try using anti-bacterial soap, your pharmacist can recommend one, but I do advise that you see a dermatologist for a diagnosis. If you have pain, redness, fever, or new symptoms then you must be seen immediately.

Everytime I wear jeans, or any type of pants like jeans I break out in small red real itchy bumps ALL over my legs. But not for any other pants. : (?

Everytime I wear jeans, or any type of pants like jeans I break out in small red real itchy bumps ALL over my legs. But not for any other pants. : (?

Irritant vs contact: You may have a contact allergy to one of the ingredients in your jeans. Another possibility is that jeans are worn tightly and may be rubbing on your skin whereas other types of pants are not usually that tight. See a dermatologist or allergist to get patch tested if you cannot avoid wearing jeans.

Is it possible to develop an allergic reaction to an antibiotic while you're taking it? I'm on my second week of amoxicillin and this morning woke up with red bumps all over. I break out in hives with penicillin and sudafed which is why I ask. Thanks.

Is it possible to develop an allergic reaction to an antibiotic while you're taking it? I'm on my second week of amoxicillin and this morning woke up with red bumps all over. I break out in hives with penicillin and sudafed which is why I ask. Thanks.

Amoxicillin: Amoxicillin is very closely related to penicillin. People with a true penicillin allergy like you (causing hives) should not take amoxicillin. I would suggest stopping the medication and calling your doctor right away to find out what to do next. You may need medication to stop the allergic reaction and perhaps a different antibiotic, depending on the reason it was prescribed. People have been known to show allergic symptoms after taking antibiotics for several days and even if they have taken the same antibiotic before and have not had problems. I hope this answers your question. Thanks!

How long?: If it lasts over 6 weeks, see an allergist. If it is short term, try some otc antihistamine up to 4 x the regular frequency but watch out for drowsiness. If it did not work, see an allergist.

My 2 year old has been coughing for 2 weeks now. She isn't running a fever. Her temp. Has been running 93.9-95.4 and started breaking out in bumps.?

My 2 year old has been coughing for 2 weeks now. She isn't running a fever. Her temp. Has been running 93.9-95.4 and started breaking out in bumps.?

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.

My dog haven't had his first shots yet is he the reason im all of a sudden breaking out with bumps?

Your dog's shots: Should not be causing you to break out in bumps. However, it might be possible that you are allergic to your dog. We have dog allergies in our home - so we are very careful of the breeds we have.

Why do I keep breaking out in little fine bumps and they itch. Looks like small rash.

Why do I keep breaking out in little fine bumps and they itch. Looks like small rash.

Contact allergy?: Have you been using a new product- lotion, soap, detergent, parfume? Have you tried a new food or something you don't normally eat? Could it be a heat rash? Where is the rash? There are many causes for rashes. If you think there is something you can avoid, then do. Try 1% hydrocortisone and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for a few days. If no change, see a doctor for evaluation and treatment.
