Many causes: Rashes are challenging even when the doctor can see them, so even harder in this forum. Small red bumps on both legs make me think of reactions to clothes, or something in contact with that area on both sides. Bites can do it. It could be heat rash, a reaction of the skin to warmth and occlusion from pressure. Some drug reactions can do that as can conditions like eczema and psoriasis. ...Read more

Why do the outer rims of my ears feel warm to touch  and have red itchy small bumps ?

Red itchy rash ears: Often ears are first to be affected if there is an allergic reaction to hair dye. Ears are swollen, red & itchy with small vesicles. Ingredient in hair color that does it is paraphenalinediamine, component of hair dye that gives it black color, present in all hair dyes except bleached blond. If this happened after dying your hair, please see derm as reactions can be severe & worse w/each exposure. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

Red itchy rash under breast and groin area it looks like sun burn with bumps. I'm itchy all over but no rash other then those areas. What can this be?

Red itchy rash under breast and groin area it looks like sun burn with bumps. I'm itchy all over but no rash other then those areas. What can this be?

Yeast infection?: If you are overweight, the areas under the breasts, the love handle, and the groin are more susceptible to candida infection. If this applies to you, try to keep these areas dry by using antiperspirant . In the meanwhile try some anti-fungal cream on the areas for a few days. If still not improved after a week, see you doctor. For overweight people, losing some weight should be a long-term goal. ...Read more
