May be: Fordyce spots, which visible sebaceous (oil) glands that are present in most individuals particularly on the genitals. It's hard to say though without visualizing the lesions. Your best bet is to at least see your primary care doctor if not a dermatologist.

I have small pimple like bumps on my legs. They are not in clusters just one here and there, but the skin around them is itchy all the time.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. In the meantime try to stop shaving your legs, if you do that, and see if that resolves the matter.

Keratosis pilaris: These are more of a cosmetic issue than anything serious. Some people hate them and use a loofa to scrape them off of the backs of their arms. They happen more in kids and teens and less in adults. You might try some low-potency Hydrocortisone cream to see if that might smooth out these little bumps on the skin.

Consider MD visit: Any unusual rash that worries you deserves a trained eye by MD to examine. Try not to scratch open as an open wound is more likely to get secondarily infected. Make sure if you shave your legs to use quality gel and razors - not just soap and water - to avoid irritating the hair follicles.

Rashes and bumps: Bumps are notoriously difficult to diagnose here. Consider bug bites, flea bites. Things to discuss would be any fever, itching, sore throat or other symptoms.

Pimple Like Bumps: Folliculitis is a very common, benign skin disorder that looks like scattered pinpoint red bumps on the skin. However, without seeing these skin lesions it is impossible to be sure of the diagnosis. If folliculitis treatment is usually oral antibiotics.

Newborn rash: If your baby is a newborn, then it's most likely the common newborn rash erythema toxicum. The rash should clear on its own. No treatment is needed. However, there are similar looking rashes that do need medical attention, so check with your baby's doctor. Here's a link for pic and info: www. Webmd.

A picture ; history: When is comes to rashes there is no substitute for seeing, either directly or a pic. How long has the rash been there? Is is a long term rash or did is come in the last few days? Is the rash itchy? Could these be bug bites? I would recommend seeing your pediatrician if this rash doesn't go away in a few days or becomes worse. If is looks like this pic it is a form of warts.

Keratosis pilaris: It sounds like it might be keratosis pilaris, which is commonly referred to as "chicken skin". It is harmless but can be a cosmetic concern. It most often occurs on the thighs and back of the upper arms. The best treatment is exfoliation on a regular basis. There are some prescription creams that will exfoliate and smooth the skin while maintaining hydration. Best to check with your doctor.

Could molluscum: Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection that cause a warty like papule that has a central indent (umbilication). These are benign, and can spontaneously improve, usually over weeks, not minutes. These could also be allergic type reaction. Should be checked at some time when he has them to get correct diagnosis.

Little bumps I have little bumps on my legs where I shaved. They almost look like giant pimples. They're red, and painful. After a while, they pop, swelling goes down, and scab over. Then after that ones gone, I get another one. What are they?

Very: Very difficult to answer without a clinical examination so I would see a dermatologist. Perhaps they are seborrheic keratoses, warts, molluscum, folliculitis (bacterial spread from shaving), or other possibilities. See a picture of these conditions at the link below. I hope that helps.

Mgt: I would advise an oatmeal bath preparation eg Aveeno, to remove any potential irritants such as poison ivy. For itching please provide one dose of Claritin (loratadine) as an anti histamine. She should see her pediatrician soon.

I'm just getting over a sty but I now have hard pimple like bumps on my stomach, hips, and legs. They do not itch but some are tender.

I'm just getting over a sty but I now have hard pimple like bumps on my stomach, hips, and legs. They do not itch but some are tender.

Likely staph: Your sty and or these sores are likely evidence you have been colonized with an aggressive staph germ. Every time you tough your face & then scratch, you are potentially spreading staph. I would consider going in to see your doc. You will likely need an oral antibiotic to chase off the staph & cure the sores.
