Off/on for past year+ i've been fighting an itchy rash on my butt (btwn chks). It comes/go. Recently I have had other symp-hair loss, rash on back of neck, behind knees. I have hypo thyroid. What cause?

Skin: Hypothyroidis even uncorrected would unlikely to cause the skin lesions you described. I think at this time you need to have a work up to rule out other autoimmune diseases. Also, seeing a dermatologist would be helpful. ...Read more

I have a lump about the size of a pea on the back of my head right above my hairline. I also noticed a rash on my neck that looks like a heat rash.

Cyst: The pea-sized bump is probably a hair follicle cyst called an epidermal or pilar cyst. The redness or heat rash worries me in that the cyst ruptured and the skin around it is now getting infected. You may need to see a dermatologsit and have the cyst removed and then take a 10 day course of oral antibiotics ...Read more

Tiny raised bumps on my forehead and neck, little itching. My trunk and back look like a small heat rash typically at night. Is this hives?

Tiny raised bumps on my forehead and neck, little itching. My trunk and back look like a small heat rash typically at night. Is this hives?

Hives: A hive lesion does not last for more than 24 hours. If those raised itchy bumps on your skin move from one place to another within a day, they sound like hives. When you don't have lung or GI symptoms, simple otc antihistamine would help in most cases. If you have hives more than 6 weeks, you need to see a physician to be evaluated for chronic hives or chronic urticaria. ...Read more

My baby is a month and a half and i notice a red line on her neck and i think its a heat rash can u help me?

Neck rashes: Neck rashes are common in infants. Until their necks elongate with growth, the chin folds trap moisture (formula, spit ups, sweat), which causes the skin to break down and be prone to rashes. Applying cornstarch to the area regularly to absorb moisture may help, but fungal infections are frequent in this area and might require prescription medication in the form of an antifungal powder or cream. ...Read more

2 month old had a heat rash to neck 1 month ago. Enlarged lymph node appeared. Now new one appeared to other side-occipital? When worry lymphoma?

2 month old had a heat rash to neck 1 month ago. Enlarged lymph node appeared. Now new one appeared to other side-occipital? When worry lymphoma?

Infant lymph nodes: Hello. The enlarged node is most likely unrelated to the heat rash your infant had 1 month ago. Occipital nodes are more noticeable in infants because their skin is thinner. The nodes should be "rubbery" in feel and move easily. Most common reasons for enlargement would be a scalp rash like "cradle cap." You can get the nodes checked by the pediatrician, but they are probably normal. ...Read more

I think I got a heat rash on my neck from the heat a few days ago. The bumps are either red or look like whiteheads and are super itchy What can I do?

I think I got a heat rash on my neck from the heat a few days ago. The bumps are either red or look like whiteheads and are super itchy What can I do?

Heat Rash: A heat rash is usually red and non itchy. It often resolves with a cool compress and getting out of the heat. The fact that the rash is persisting and contains whit bumps suggests you were in contact with something you may be sensitive to. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and a mild hydrocortisone cream topically to see if this helps. Follow up with your doctor. All the best. ...Read more

I have this red patch on the left side of neck 2 inches under jaw line. Does not itch, hurt or burn. Weather has been humid. Could it be heat rash?

Rash: Usually, heat rash looks like little bumps or pimples. This could be a fungal infection - usually a red blotch that is scaly. Or it could be impetigo, a patch that often has a honey colored crust. Fungal skin infections are treated with topical antifungal creams like clotrimazole. Impetigo, a staph skin infection is treated with antibiotics. ...Read more

On cruise. After massage & hot day wake feverish mornings, afternoon better. Have chronic tonsils but not inflamed. Sore throat mucus. Had heat rash. ?

Doctor can check: Throat pain can be a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Strep throat can cause a reddish rash that may look like a splotchy sunburn. ...Read more

When I can warm or hot or when I exercise, I get stings (electrical needle like) all over my body, primarily head and back. I hope there is a cure for this, I think it might be heat rash? But there is no rash, just pain.

When I can warm or hot or when I exercise, I get stings (electrical needle like) all over my body, primarily head and back. I hope there is a cure for this, I think it might be heat rash? But there is no rash, just pain.

Warm up: It is good that you are exercising. What you described is likely due to onset of sweating and the sweat gland trying to put out water quickly. Try a 10 minute period of warming up before progressing to hard or vigorous exercise. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
