I have started getting tiny, itchy water filled bumps on my arms and chest when exercising (indoors). Are these sweat blisters? Any prevention tips?

Heat rash: It sounds like a type of heat rash known as miliaria crystallina. See if online pics match. Avoid situations that can lead to excessive sweating, such as hot, humid environments and strenuous physical activity. Dry your skin thoroughly (baby powder as needed); and wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothes ideally made w/cotton. However with all this said, take a picture and bring it to a derm ; confirm. ...Read more

I suffered from a 2nd degree burn on my chest, my wound had blisters, it left a scar. I applied contractubex gel but it made the scar itchy and red. Help.

So you got scammed: Learn from it and throw away this useless product. See a dermatologist. Meanwhile you can use hydrocortisone. How long since the burn? What kind of scar? How large? You will not find effective scar treatments on your own. ...Read more

Have a rash on my chest small patch three patches on back. Slightly itchy and sore. Red very small blisters. Also suspect I have a yeast infection.

Possibly shingles: If the patches are in a line-like pattern (as opposed to a random pattern), it is likely you have shingles (reactivation of chicken pox virus), and you need a prescription for an antiviral medication if the rash began within the past 3 days. Sometimes a steroid such as Hydrocortisone or Prednisone is also prescribed. The yeast infection can be treated with an antifungal medication. See your pcp. ...Read more

Allergic reaction?: There are many possible causes of widespread skin rash. If you are otherwise well (no fever, diarrhea, cold, etc) then an allergic reaction of some sort might be possible, especially if you are taking any drugs that can cause allergic rash. (It doesn't have to be a newly started drug; could be something you've been taking a long time.) Best to see a doctor and take it from there. ...Read more
