What to do if i keep getting these white itchy bumps on my skin, what is the cause?

Allergy consult: The issue is complex and you should consult an allergist. Do realize that even though we can usually control the rash, not uncommonly no cause can be found despite exhaustive studies. In the meanwhile, try taking antihistamine 3 to 4 times a day to see if this may help. The dose needed for itchy skin is much higher than what is needed to control hay fever but even then it may not work. ...Read more

When i scratch or bump my skin, on any part of my body, a raised hot white itchy rash develops. What could cause this?

Hypersensitive skin: This could represent dermographism, where you can cause welts on your skin with pressure, like writing. Physical urticaria, or hives, also possible. I usually have someone try an oral anti-histamine for this problem. ...Read more

Can very dry skin cause red itchy bumps that look like bug bites? I'm getting sporadic red itchy bumps on face it's very dry and itchy!

Yes: Skin that is very dry can develop irritation. The best treatment would probably be to use a cream that is both an exfoliant and emollient. I generally recommend either a lactic or a glycolic acid cream to help get rid of the dry, rough skin. http://www.OmahaCosmeticSurgery.com ...Read more

Here are some...: Your described skin changes most times come with no identifiable cause, but personal "dry" skin - rare at 20 - may worsen the itching. So, continue same care and see.

Dermatitis?: This might just be healing of your apparent penile yeast infection. Or some other dermatitis. It doesn't sound serious, and no STD would do this. Beyon that, there's no way to judge the cause in any more detail. Get professionally evaluated if it continues and/or you remain concerned. ...Read more

What could be the cause of itchy bumps all over the body(legs, arms, neck, top and bottom of feet, sometimes face and hands) that come and go?

Itchy red bumps: The description of itchy red bumps that come and go is very much the description of hives. Hives or urticaria is very common affecting 25% of people. Sometimes there is swelling. Causes are many and unfortunately treatments available are fewer. While hives are not dangerous or contagious, the itching can be very uncomfortable. Allergist or dermatologist can assist in diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Your age?: It is hard to tell without you giving us any detail on the history or even your age. Although itching often points to an allergic contact condition( hair preparations especially black hair dye) , it may also be from a skin cancer. Best to get them checked especially if you are over age 50. ...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

Will using permethrin only where the itchy bumps are located on my body eliminate the scabies? It worked last time. Head to toe seems overkill no?

Will using permethrin only where the itchy bumps are located on my body eliminate the scabies?  It worked last time.  Head to toe seems overkill no?

Not overkill: Scabies is not like a simple mosquito bite. Scabies is an infestation of the skin by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei. Transmitted by close person to person contact or by fomites (clothing, linens). To prevent transmission treat with Permethrin 5% cream. Apply to all areas of the body from the neck down and wash off aprox 8-14 hours later. Simultaneous treatment of close contacts advised. ...Read more
