A doctor's visit should do the trick. It will save you lots of time and money over going to the emergency room ...Read more

Each would have a different treatment, so a primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate and give some recommendations. Rashes are hard to describe in words. Little white heads are more likely folliculitis. If recently using a hot tub, such a rash could be due to that. ...Read more
