Insect Bite Allergy: Most probably it is insect bite with cutaneous allergic response. He might have scratched it which is causing oozing. Keep the area clean, give some anti itch medicine / cream. Make sure, it is not tick bite with spreading red rash, changing places. Then he will need evaluation by his pediatrician. ...Read more

Shaving?: Are you shaving your legs? Shaving can irritate the hair follicles and cause a bumpy rash. If there is any pus in the bumps it could be a skin infection called folliculitis. Folliculitis needs antibiotics, if it just irritation from shaving, you might want to try a different product and shaving less often. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Could be minor...: Dermatology is all about appearance. I am guessing it is an erythematous papule ("red bumpy"), which honestly could be an insect bite, or contact dermatitis, both of which are common. However you mention pregnancy; there is a condition called PUPPP: Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy, which are terribly itchy red bumps! See what the dermatologist thinks! ...Read more

Intertrigo: The rash may be due to a yeast infection from chronic heat and moisture, or be an intertriginous rash from tight clothing, and chronic irritation. Try avoiding very tight clothing and apply an antiyeast ointment. If there is no improvement, consult a dermatologist. ...Read more

My 11 year old has scattered severe bruising all over her legs, ringing in her ears, dizziness, headaches and a red bumpy rash? Chance of leukemia?

Needs to be tested: I would have a CBC (complete blood count) performed today. The bruising makes me think about low platelets. This can happen in leukemia, but is also common in post-infectious situations like itp. Her headaches and ringing in her ears could be viral infection, or even bacterial infection. However, headaches can be seen with anemia. A simple blood test will be very helpful. Good luck. ...Read more

Have it checked: This could be a number of things and hard to know what it is without looking at it. Most commonly, this could be reaction to something (like an allergy) or infection that may need to be treated. I suggest you see your doctor soon to have it checked out properly. ...Read more

Dr,  I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab.. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?

Probably not: but you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more
