I have small, painful rashes on my back and legs. My eyes are red and I have swelling everywhere. What is happening?

Insect allergy?

Good morning, Painful rash on back and legs can be due to many causes. One patient developed such a rash after staying in a hotel; my diagnosis was bed-bug-allergy, as the rash was limited to the back of trunk, and back of legs, and the protected areas such as those covered by intimate clothing was not affected. Since your eyes are red and swelling everywhere other causes of need consideration.

Red rashes with knots under the skin on legs only no itching any ideas? female

Many possibilities

Open-uri20130314-20029-1ucx4b9
There are many things that could cause a rash. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

After I undergo chemical peeling on my legs, when my skin peel i have this red humps more like rashes and its very itchy, is it normal?

Possibly

Rash
It's common to have some redness and peeling after a chemical peel (like a sunburn) which can last 5-7 days or longer depending on what kind of peel was performed. But sometimes allergic reactions or infection can occur after a peel so it's important to check with your doctor to see if the reaction you're having is normal. You should receive instructions on how to take care of your skin after peel

it could be eczema or warts, or an allergic reaction to something. rashes are best treated in person so the doctor can see and feel to determine what it is

Toddler with rashes that comes and goes. Is this serious? Rashes (red with small white bumps) all over the body (usually on baby's legs) and face that comes and goes, lasting for about 30 minutes or even less. Does not seem to bother my 1 year old but I n

You can see a small fine red rash after a MMR vaccine but the rash you describe has occurred too long after receiving the vaccine. No need to fear the MMR vaccine. The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit.

May be infected

Open-uri20130420-7661-el6325
If yu have an open wound that is getting more painful, with spreading redness, increasing skin temp, or drainage from the skin you may have an infection. Red streaks from the area or symptoms like pain behind the knee or at the groin area indicate spreading infection, and progressive symptoms like fever, nausea or abdominal painty indicate blood poisoning. See a doctor right away to be evaluated.
