Dry spots: Dryness of skin can be due to environment, lack of oil in the diet, or a skin condition, or if itchy from low B 12. Please see you doctor for a proper diagnosis and help. Please avoid any skin lotion containing alcohol. That will dry the skin more. Peace and good health.

This could be: folliculitis. they appear as bumps on the inner thighs at the pores from clogged hair ducts and then dry up and scab. But are not spread all over the body. The other possibility is allergy as that coul dbe all over the body

Red dry spots all over my upper body that itch. I was recently given tinctures when I was sick. Is it an allergic reaction? They itch too but not bad

Red dry spots all over my upper body that itch. I was recently given tinctures when I was sick. Is it an allergic reaction? They itch too but not bad

May be: What kind of tinctures you received? And what for? Drug related reactions that produce rashes are multiple and confusing even to experts, so you need to be seen by a dermatologist for better management, best wishes

Baby has a dry rash appearing in different spots on her body. How can I treat this? Is it possible that her formula could be a reason?

Baby has a dry rash appearing in different spots on her body. How can I treat this? Is it possible that her formula could be a reason?

Atopic Dermatitis: Is most likely what is happening. Formula is not usually a cause. I recommend you see her pediatrician. In the meantime, moisturizing lotions without perfume, warm not hot baths with cetaphil as cleanser. Put lotion on her before you dry her completely after bath. Her pediatrician may have you use a steroid cream but hold off on that until she is evaluated.

Mgt: Your baby may have eczema. This can usually be managed by using Eucerin cream a few times a day to the affected areas. I would suggest avoiding long baths and a moisturizer prior to bedtime. Watch for any signs of foods as a possible trigger.

I have redish dry itchy bumps on body slightly raised on edges some are dime size and some are smaller all of my body about 15 or so spots.?

Rash: It's really difficult to accurately diagnose are rash without seeing it. How long have you had the bumps? Did they start all at once, or did you start with one and have progressively got more? I recommend a visit to your doctor as they may be able to give you a prescription that will help resolve the problem. Good Luck.

Baby has eczema spots all over her body due to the cold dry weather but nothing is helping! Is it really eczema? Is there something else I can use?

Soak and Seal skin: Change body wash to a dove, olay or cetaphil/cerave liquid body wash or no soap at all at bath time. Immediately apply moisturizer (aquaphor healing ointment) with you can adjust frequency depending on the complexion (average 2-3 times daily or more). Lighter lotions evaporate from the skin quickly. Greasy stay in longer-not as pleasant feeling. 1%hydrocortisone cream can be applied after.

I have brown, dry spots that I was told was Scarlet fever residue. I am 59, I was 8 when I had the fever. They cover my body from my knees to my neck?

I have brown, dry spots that I was told was Scarlet fever residue. I am 59, I was 8 when I had the fever. They cover my body from my knees to my neck?

Can't accept that: I have seen & treated scarlet fever over decades and followed the patients for years afterward. I have never seen any skin discoloration as a long term consequence of this problem. The rash, when it arises is temporary. The skin, renews itself over the years and by the time decades have past, you have new surface cells & many imperfections (environmental exposures) that were never present in childhood.

Have them seen...: Make an appointment to see your doctor. Without seeing the area of concern, it is impossible to give advice that is useful.

Dry red spot appeared on skin by hip, rash covering my body followed. Red, circular, itchy, spots from neck to groin, front and back. Help!

Rash: Sounds like it could be pityriasis rosea a non dangerous self limiting rash in younger people. Google it and see if it matches. However, you should see a dermatologist to confirm this and to make sure you are not dealing with anything else. Hope this helps.

Chronic pain: You should follow up with your doctor to discuss the next step in the evaluation of your symptoms. What you have could be medication side effects or hormonal change due to menopause. You could have an autoimmune disease. Chronic tender spots could be fibromyalgia. Chronic hepatitis c or b could be another consideration.

May not be related.: There are many types and causes of skin rashes that could cause itching. 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.

Hand foot and mouth?: It's very uncommon for adults, common for kids. In the last few weeks I've seen several adults with hand, foot, and mouth disease. It's an uncomfortable but not dangerous viral illness, improves within a few days, but if your symptoms, worsen, change or fail to improve you should be seen.
