Hives?: If the spots don't increase, they might be just bug bites. If they keep increasing, then they might be hives, an allergic reaction (of course there could also be multiple bugs causing new bites). Otc creams or gels that contain 1% Hydrocortisone or the skin anesthetic pramoxine can both be helpful (the dr. Can advise on what age range the meds can be used in). The dr.

Breaking out in a rash and having severe acid reflux. They are little tiny bumps that itch like crazy, come and go all day and night?

See your PCP: Your rash may or may not be related to the acid reflux. The rash could be an allergy to some new medication, a new soap, detergent, plant, animal, an infection, etc. There are many causes of rashes. I encourage you to see a health professional who can fully examine you and determine the cause of it if you have tried over the counter medications such as benadryl (diphenhydramine) or hydrocortisone. ...Read more

See dermatologist: I always recommend anything that has tendency to scab and bleed get seen by a dermatologist. Better to be safe and you live in sunny area which leads to higher risk of skin cancer, but it is not necessarily that, but best to get it checked out. ...Read more

Do I have genital herpes?! I have no bumps but my vulva is bright red and itches like crazy. This is the second time since I've had sex.

Do I have genital herpes?! I have no bumps but my vulva is bright red and itches like crazy. This is the second time since I've had sex.

Probably not herpes: Vaginal itching and vulva redness is more likely due to a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomonasis. Herpes can cause itching but more likely to be painful also. The lesions of herpes are more like blisters or open sores than bumps. The best way to determine what is causing the problem is to have it evaluated by a doctor who can then provide proper treatment. ...Read more
