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.

Why is my skin reacting (dry patches, itchy rash) to my insulin pump sites?

Adhesive reaction?

Insulin
I would wonder if you are becoming sensitive to the adhesive used at the site. It is unlikely to be a reaction to the insulin. Also, make sure there is no latex in your supplies. You might try putting some hydrocortisone cream on your skin in the area before attaching the insertion needle.

i have an itchy rash on my testicles, very dry skin which splits and bleeds when scratching...?

Dry skin

Rash
You may just have a case of skin dryness causing the itch. Try applying a moisturizing cream. It maybe best to have the doctor look aat the rash to rule out any infection.

See a dermatologist

Dermatology
It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

I have had a dry red itchy rash on my neck for 2 months.  Sometimes it gets irritated and gets what looks like hives on it...white bumps.  ?

Contact dermatitis

Dermatitis
This sounds like a contact dermatitis - either allergic or irritant. Very possibly related to necklace or other article of clothing that may come in comtact with that area.

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.

If over-the-counter steroid creams don't work, see your family doctor.

I am 8 weeks pregnant & over the past 4days I have developed a severe red itchy rash all over my body ther are small itchy red lumps covering my skin?

Call your doctor

Rash
A rash during the first trimester of pregnancy needs to be discussed with your doctor. This can be something very complicated. If you don't have a doctor, get one early next week to discuss this.

Dr. James Fishman answered:

Non-itchy rash on sctorum. skin has become very dry and dots are spreading up my penis. wouldn't say burning sensation but definitely feels warm. ?

Needs an exam

Itch
A medical visit to either the dermatologist or urologist would allow a thorough exam of the involved genital skin to arrive at a diagnosis/treatment. Fungal-type infections come to mind from your description, and these can be treated with topical creams.

Dr. John T. Chiu answered:

BAD/itchy rash that starts under my groin & goes all the round my anus. Its red & can gets really dry. Started last year wen I started track. HELP!

Contact allergy?

Anus
It appears that you have developed a contact allergy to the material used in your sports outfit. Rubber and latex would be the prime suspects. Consider giving your sports shorts an extra rinse with water. Although monilial infection is common in the areas involved, it tends to cause a moist and not dry lesion.
