Dr. Peter A. Lio answered:

Been experiencing small red rashes and/or lumps on the inside of my left elbow only, vary in size. Usually not itchy, but always in the same spot.?

Need more info

Dermatology is pretty visual, so it's hard to know what is going on without seeing it. Eczema, psoriasis, and urticaria (hives) can develop around the elbows, though eczema and hives tend to be itchy. Sometimes an irritant or mild allergic contact dermatitis can present in the same place as well. I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist to help solve this one.

I have red skin like rashes/spot like formations that form at night over my body and disappear overnight. What is it? And what could be the cause?

If it disappears

Skin_rash
completely overnight, you are probably reacting to something that you consume or come in contact with before you go to bed. You can try antihistamines such as diphenhydramine OTC. If it persists, consult a dermatologist.

My baby has a red spot behind her neck that itches her alot, the edges get lil rashes. At times , what can this be?

Eczema or birthmark

Itch
This can be a type of eczema or mild inflammation of a birthmark typically called a "stork bite." Moisturize the area with vaseline multiple times per day for 1 week. If that doesn't work, follow-up with your pediatrician.

I had unprotected sex few monthes back and started to have rashes recently. Red patches with little red spot. So is it HIV?

Rashes and HIV

Rash
Given the time frame you mention I am much more worried about syphilis. You must be tested. HIV can show up with a pale full body rash, but this is rare. Syphilis can be deadly. IT is time to get to a testing site or to your family doctor. Do not let fear delay you getting the information and testing you need.

Dr. Layth Maolood answered:

I have a small rash ory dy itchy spot on my breast for almost two weeks it itches but bo redness or swell or pain what can I use to heal it?

Eczema or ringworm?

Itch
Dry and itchy spot is probably eczema. You could try 1% hydrocortisone cream OTC for a week. If that does not help then an topical antifungal for 2 weeks could help with ring worm. If neither don't work then a trip to your doctor id warrented.

Red spot like rashes on the tip of my penis,itchiness and slight pain, moist and foul smell are some symptoms i have. Which type of doctor to go to?

Primary care doctor

Urology
A primary care doctor evaluates and treats rashes and infections on the penis. If it is a tight foreskin problem, the doctor can help too. He can refer to a urologist or a dermatologist if necessary.
