Likely chiggers: Chiggers (red bugs) are common in the late spring & generally present in tall grass or weeds. Once on the body they crawl around looking for a blood meal & cause a painless bite. If they hit a barrier like a belt line they often bite along that line. Within a day the body reacts with itching & the red small flat wound sites. Treatment focuses on reducing the itching.Scratching can lead to infection.

See doctor: It is best for the child if you take him to the doctor for evaluation. You do not want the skin to scar especially on the face

Try hydrocortisone: Try over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. Contact allergy, insect bites and the like will generally respond. If the rash looks infected however, the cream will not help.

Rash: It's really difficult to accurately diagnose are rash without seeing it. How long have you had the bumps? Did they start all at once, or did you start with one and have progressively got more? I recommend a visit to your doctor as they may be able to give you a prescription that will help resolve the problem. Good Luck.

Many reasons: Not sure if you are a man or a woman, but a man can have folliculitis on the chest hair, both can have acne there too, and many other reasons can cause raised red bumps. Best is to see your doctor to examine the rash and give you a proper diagnosis.

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.

Infection: Sounds like infection. I would try antibiotics. From what you are describing, I doubt topical would help - you probably need antibiotic pills. So you need to see a doctor. There are probably clinics in your community that are free or accept payment on a sliding scale. Don't know until you ask.

Re-evaluation: Depending on the treatment, allergic contact dermatitis can last several days to a month. If would be worthwhile to re-check with a doctor and specifically a dermatologist to confirm the contact dermatitis diagnosis and offer perhaps a different course of treatment. Don't suffer.

I have a rash that only appears on my elbows, red raised itchy bumps. Sometimes it looks scabby or scaly. What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Pruritic skin rashes: Based on your age and description, the most common skin rash that are red, itch, and scaly is atopic dermatitis. Psoriasis could be similar but it is not as itchy. Either case, you can try to apply otc Hydrocortisone cream to the lesions a few times a day plus moisturizer generously to always keep your skin moist. If it does not improve or not completely resolve, you would need to see a doctor.

Prickly itchy rash shows raised bumps, when scratch swell into raised strips. Lasts few mins. Affects diff area of body/hair & diff time. No reason.

Dermatographism: If your rash is a flat one and scratching it causing raised strip, you have dermatographism meaning that your skin is oversensitive. If it is bothersome, taking an otc antihistamine such as zyrtec (cetirizine) will likely control it. Else it is not a major health issue. As always, mention this to your doctor when you see him/her next time.

You got bit by: Some ticks. I would consider going to see a primary care provider if it doesn't go away with over the counter steroid creams (hydrocortisone). They may get bigger and itch worse.

Bumps: This sounds like herpes which recurs in the same location. Sometimes the location is the thigh or back although this is less common. You can have a viral HSV culture done of the fluid in the bumps to confirm.

Get the diagnosis: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
