Bra rash is super itchy, red, stings to the touch, raised \u0026 inflamed. Days after still red now with bumps with black dots? What are these black dots?

Your initial: Description sounds like an inflammation of skin hair follicles or a friction rash or, infrequently a contact type dermatitis (doubt), the fact that it stings suggests that there is some superficial skin breakdown. If the black "dots" brush or wash off easily and you wore a black bra it is just fibers from the bra. Wouldn't know what else would cause that without seeing. ...Read more

There are few red spots on my scalp, which makes my scalp very itchy. How to cure it permanently? Thank you

Sometimes, this kind of problem needs a doctors evaluation. Other things this could be include tinea capitis (fungal infection), psoriasis, discoid lupus, lichen planopilaris, early alopecia areata among many others. Get it checked out. ...Read more

I have had red spots/raised under my belly button since the beginning of the week and they are a bit itchy at times. They also appear to have puss in ?

Few possibilities: I assume that you are asking what these spots are. Sometimes it can be eczema, but since some of these seem to have pus and the rash is new, I suspect other causes. Common are contact allergies(nickle on the inside of metal buttons)or infection of the hair glands(folliculitis), particularly if you shave this area. Might also be impetigo. Infections need meds and CD needs avoidance and cortisone ...Read more
