I have what looks like heat rash in both armpits. Its spreading down my arms & sides, but my arms & sides look like I have chicken pox. What's wrong?
Pustular rash: This could be folliculitis or an irritated infectious rash from rubbing between your skin surfaces. I wonder if you've been hot and sweaty lately? Since it's spreading you should show a doc since it needs to be stopped. There are other things it could be like out of control fungus, contact allergy (any new deodorants?) or less likely the start of some viral infection--I doubt chicken pox tho. ...Read more
Entire body feels as if it's burning, bumps all over my skin including stomach, thighs and arms. I think it's heat rash, but what can I do to cure it?
Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be. For common rashes such as eczema, mild reactions to plants or chemicals, excessive dryness, or little itchy bumps, over-the-counter Hydrocortisone 1% cream for 1 week, usually helps. A doctor can help figure out the cause, look for internal disorders, and decide if Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec would help. ...Read more

2 month old had a heat rash to neck 1 month ago. Enlarged lymph node appeared. Now new one appeared to other side-occipital? When worry lymphoma?
Infant lymph nodes: Hello. The enlarged node is most likely unrelated to the heat rash your infant had 1 month ago. Occipital nodes are more noticeable in infants because their skin is thinner. The nodes should be "rubbery" in feel and move easily. Most common reasons for enlargement would be a scalp rash like "cradle cap." You can get the nodes checked by the pediatrician, but they are probably normal. ...Read more
