I have red itchy bumps on my inner thigh, and now I have one on the skin of my testicals.?

Folliculiitis maybe: The list of possibilities for "itchy red bumps" is rather long. Folliculitis is inflammation in the root of the hairs, can be caused by friction, bacteria, or fungal (especially yeast). Hives will sometimes present this way. You really need a dermatologist to determine the cause, and prescribe appropriate therapy. ...Read more

I had hives in August, they healed but my skin is itchy off and on. Now I have red itchy bumps in lines of 2 or 3 on my arm. Mites? Husband is fine.

I had hives in August, they healed but my skin is itchy off and on. Now I have red itchy bumps in lines of 2 or 3 on my arm. Mites? Husband is fine.

Continued histamine: Very likely the immune reaction which caused the hives, with histamine release, is still somewhat active. I doubt you have mites or any insect problem. Continue using the anti-histamines you were likely treated with (Benadryl?, Allegra (fexofenadine)?) or OTC topical cortisone as needed to control your current red itchy bumps. Best wishes! ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

What are these red, non dry non itchy spots not bumps, spots? They are about the size and circumference of a grain of rice. No skin texture change.

Some thoughts...: You do a great job of describing the rash, but unfortunately there are still very many possibilities. It could be a medication reaction, a viral exanthem, tinea, eczema (even if it doesn't itch), a vasculitis... It's a long list. Your doctor will ask how long it's been there, any associated symptoms (fever, etc), they'll see if it blanches, if there's any scale. Hope this is somewhat helpful! ...Read more
