I have a rash of red spots on the back of my right wrist that rarely itches. It's been there for several years and has pretty much stayed the same?

Could be anything...: ...From a fungal infection to any one of several skin tumors. Only a dermatologist can tell you exactly what it is after a direct examination, and possibly a biopsy.

Red Spots (Definition)

Strep throat, prescribed amoxicillin. Then red spots on top of hand, rash along both bottom sides of arms. Doc says unlikely allergic relation. STD?

Strep related: There are at least two forms of rash associated with strep. One is related to a toxin released by living strep germs, typically flat, sand papery and rosey. Anther is a hive like eruption (bumps) that can be associated with it. There are a few STD associated rashes, but what you describe is not how they appear.

May be issue in park: If you are a tourist in a national park, then anything that touches the skin can do this, ranging from a reaction to the soap used in hotel laundries to the grass and flora of the park. If this persists after you return home, see your physician for an evaluation of the problem

What can cause a sudden face rash with burning sensation? Also have several red spots on my arms.

Facial rash: Facial rash with burning can be cause by an allergic reaction to something that touched your facial skin, a viral infection like herpes, shingles on the face, photo-drug reaction to a medication you are taking, and other causes, skin diseases like Lupus. You should see your local dermatologist for the correct diagnosis.

Yes: It is likely that you have a new onset allergy to penicillin. Stop the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and contact the prescriber. At some point in the future you can see an allergist to get skin tested to confirm.

7m old low grade fever of 101.5 (day)103 (night).Two red spots on his cheek and sore on the roof of his mouth has a bit of diaper rash? Cause?

Hand foot, mouth dis: Hand foot and mouth disease is most likely. Causing sores on the palate, around the mouth, in the diaper area, and hands and feet, they look like red spots or canker sores (white discs with red around them). Fever and pain are possible. It's viral and runs its course. Pain control is key. If this doesn't sound like what your child has, get it checked.

A rash for 4 months: What are you waiting for? See a DR if you can. Is cost an issue? If it is, find a free clinic. Your description lacks enough detail for any kind of guess.

Red spots: Haha ~ if a red spot disappears when you press on it it means it is made up of tiny blood vessels and thesis called an angioma. Don't pick at them because if you break them open they bleed profusely. If you are concerned see a dermatologist thanks

Red spots on hands, wrists and arm. Help! What could it be?

Red spots on hands, wrists and arm. Help! What could it be?

Need more info: How big are they? Do they itch? How long have you had them? As much as more info may help me help you, though, the best thing for skin problems is to have them looked at. See your doctor, or go to an urgent care if worrisome.

Found red spots on hands, wrists and arm. What could it be help?

Tough to say: The computer is not the best palce for diagnosis, especially with rashes. Rashes can be caused by an allergic trigger (something you ate, came in contact with) or a virus or a bacterial infection, etc. See your dr. For a visual inspection of the rash and the proper diagnosis, that way the treatment will be geared to help you best. Good luck.

Allergies: Your symptoms sound like it might represent an allergic dermatitis. It may be from a personal care product, soap, perfume, laundry detergent, fabric softener, or even a food you ate recently. It the rash is really bothersome, see your physician for diagnosis and treatment.

Itchy?: This sounds like hives. Hives are a raised bumpy type of rash that can occur anywhere on the body. They tend to come and go rather quickly and change position throughout the day.

Is this blood clots? I slept on my arm, & noticed swelling, red spots & numbness when I woke. I couldn't move my hand & saw a bulge in my wrist vein.

Is this blood clots? I slept on my arm, & noticed swelling, red spots & numbness when I woke. I couldn't move my hand & saw a bulge in my wrist vein.

DVT upper extremity: It could be a blood clot in the superficial or deep veins or both superficial and deep veins and the only way to know is to get a noninvasive scan called a Duplex venous ultrasound. I suggest that you get one as soon as possible.

My skin gets itchy, when I scratch it, it turns to red spots. Like rashes. I don't have food allergies. What could this be?

Angioedema!: Some people with stress release histamine in the skin. When scratching occurs, red welts occur. Try combining an over the counter drug like Claritin and zantac (ranitidine) (2x 75mg). I bet you get relief!
