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

had sex-Balanitis on penis head, non painful white spots on tonsils won't go away, red spots look like molluscum base of penis. 3.5 weeks total. HIV?

Get examined: None of this suggests any STD, unless you have molluscum contagiosum. If you do, maybe from some other exposure; 3.5 weeks probably is too soon. The chance of HIV is low and your symptoms don't suggest it. But since you're worried, and have possible MC, you need to see a doctor or clinic for personal exam and STD/HIV testing. You'll never get final answers online or by self testing. Good luck. ...Read more

Telogen effluvium.: With telogen effluvium, the spots you develop can be without hair for several months. When the hairs start to grow again, they will of course be very short, but they will regrow to normal length eventually. This growth can take many months however, so patience is needed. Hair grows very slowly, unfortunately. ...Read more

What can I do to cure the red spots from shaving?

What can I do to cure the red spots from shaving?

Several thoughts: Play detective. Different shaving creams/lotions may provide a better "skin conditioner" before you shave, making for less red spots. Shaving after a hot bath/shower. Where your pores are open, is more conducive to a "clean shave" as well. Invest in a good razor that does not irritate you. You may need a razor for "sensitive skin." hope this helps. ...Read more

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

Hard to say: A picture is worth a thousand words and that is certainly true in your case. Most skin diseases need to be seen to be diagnosed. Red spots that last for years could anything from rosacea, cherry angiomas or even skin cancers. I suggest you make arrangements to have a doctor physically look at your skin to make the right diagnosis. ...Read more

Nothing serious if..: How old are you? Do you have tight long foreskin? If yes, have you had inflammation/infection there? If young and not bothersome, leaving it alone is best thing to follow.

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

Both get checked: Some people are sensitive to resident bacteria or fungal infections their partner may be harboring. Not the same as a sexually transmitted disease, intermittent superficial irritations sometimes indicates a yeast infection. A condition called balanitis can ensue causing intermittent itching and irritation. In uncircumcised men the yeast can reside inside the foreskin and be passed back an forth. ...Read more
