My chin was super itchy and after I started scratching it a bunch of bumps that look like and appeared? I don't get acne normally and it's still itchy

Cause of the itch?: You need to look back at what triggered the itch: if you were shaving, you probably irritated your skin and by scratching your hair follicles became infected or inflamed (these are the bumps). Your skin may also be allergic to a cream which you might have used. For now apply a little bit of hydrocortisone cream and antibiotic cream (mixed) once or twice. ...Read more

For a sun burn: What you described appears to be the usual progression of sun burn.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

A few weeks ago the skin under my eyes became very dry and itchy. the skin is peeling and it really hurts. Ive tried lots of lotions bt idk what to do?

Contact allergy?: I suspect that you may have become allergic to agents you have been using on your face particularly near the lower eyelids. Since the reaction does not usually appear until 24-72 hrs after the contact, the cause may not be obvious to you. Consider not wearing any makeup for a week and see if this improves. See derm or allergist if problem persists. ...Read more

A : A rash on your penis definitely warrants medical investigation, meaning a trip to your doctor. You could be dealing with something as simple as an allergic reaction/dermatitis or something more worrisome like an std. Regardless i can't make a good guess without seeing the area in question. Also you may need testing depending on your doctor's diagnosis. Best of luck. ...Read more

I have a small patch of bumpy skin on my face. The bumps are not red, nor do they itch or hurt. Is this just dry skin? Or maybe acne?

Facial lesions: Bumps on the face could be multiple things. Acne will turn red eventually. Eczema (associated with dry skin) can result in bumps that may or may not itch. A fungal infection would gradually spread and may not itch. If the bumps have a small central pit it could be a benign infection called Molluscum that resolves over time. Using steroids like hydrocortisone will worsen a fungal infection. ...Read more

There is a patch of skin on my fore arm that is very tiny bumps, not red, not itchy. I had shingles last year and it is on the same arm. Dry skin? Or?

Skin lesions: May just be dry skin (try moisturizing cream several times a day; avoid very hot baths/showers & harsh soaps). Might be sun damage from too much exposure; see doc for evaluation; actinic keratoses are easily treated via many methods. Use sunscreen when outdoors, even on cloudy days. If blisters form, may be recurrence of shingles (not common) but best treated early. ...Read more
