My skin has a redness to it, and when rubbed there is an itchy sensation?

Dry? rash? history?

Dermatitis
Your skin may be dry, especially if you've been out in the sun a lot, or there may be something more going on. Is there a rash, or just vague/generalized redness? Any other symptoms? Exposure to any foods, plants, chemicals? Any medications or medical conditions? Try moisturizer lotion 2-4x/day for a few days, and if not getting better, get checked by a dr.

Dr. Jan Lei Iwata answered:

After getting my eyebrows waxed my skin around it had a bad reaction would tea tree oil calm the redness and get rid of the tiny itchy pimples?

Tea tree oil may sting

Skin
If the area is already irritated, using Tea tree oil may sting, burn, or irritate the skin. So it may make the area more red and inflamed. You're better off using something that's much more mild and less stinging. Pure lavender oil (Lavandula agustafolia) is more soothing, because it has less camphor in it, but if it's made from (Lavandula), it will be just as irritating as tea tree oil. So read your labels.

I have oily skin and facial acne, mostly on the forehead and around the chin bone, slow treated and redness around the acne and sometimes itchy?

Get treated

Acne
If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated (try 5% 2x/day for starters) hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength Rx. Life's tough enough without dealing with this as an adult.

Herpes

Red, itchy, painful episodes of rash in the boxer shorts area is herpes until proven otherwise. Breakouts may occur during times of physical or mental stress. Treatment can include anti-virals, which may either be taken on an episodic or daily preventive basis. You can get a blood test that tells you whether it's HSV I or HSV II.

Dr. Johnnie Alston answered:

what causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction

Leg
Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved I would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor.
