A photo would help: The key to dermatology is the appearance. The 'story' behind it helps lead one in the right direction. Finally, if all of that doesn't make the diagnosis a biopsy is necessary, where a doctor (pathologist) can look under a microscope and tell you what it is. You might want to send an image to a Health Tap doc-there's a new feature about tough to solve cases, maybe you would be a candidate for that ...Read more

Itchy Bumps: A visit to the dermatologist is required to ascertain the nature of these spots of patches of inflamed skin. If skin disorders such as acne, eczema, rosacea or skin allergies are affecting the texture of the skin, the dermatologist might prescribe certain medications to tackle this problem. Topical steroids, creams, lotions, antibiotics or antihistamines might be needed to treat this condition. ...Read more

I have small semi itchy bumps developing on my face! Need urgent help! I am a 20 year old male. ?

This is difficult: to diagnose here without seeing the rash. Did you have any new exposures to foods, soaps, shampoos, medications? Are you sick with a fever or other symptoms? A cortisone cream might help, but it would be best to see your doctor or a dermatologist to be properly diagnosed and treated. Hope it's better soon. If you are a Prime member on HealthTap, you could also request a consult. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps i first noticed on my face but now they have spread quickly all over and are mildly itchy not sure what to do?

Itchy red bumps: Rashes that are red, itchy, raised and spread can be hives (urticaria) although it is easier to view them directly. It can be helpful to take a photo (to document), not all the circumstances surrounding onset of rash (diet, exercise, medications, stings/bites, fever, other symptoms, etc) to try to pinpoint trigger. Antihistamines like zyrtec (cetirizine) help with itching. See doc if continue or worsen... ...Read more

Dermatographism: This is a heightened sensitivity of your skin and an allergic type reaction to something internal or external. Stimuli could be foods, medications, temperature, etc. Often the inciting cause is unknown. If you cannot get relief with antihistamines like benadryl(causes drowsiness) or claritin(nondrowsy), consult an allergist who may prescribe atarax (hydroxyzine) as well as attempt to determine the cause ...Read more

I got my face waxed & It looked a little irritated but I thought it was normal then I woke up the next day with red itchy bumps (hives) help!

Waxing: Can cause physical irritation to the delicate skin on your face and lead to what you got, but calm down, wash your face with cream soap and moisturize your face well, OTC hydrocortisone cream 1%, on affected areas, avoid near eye/eyelids, for a day or so together with OTC antihistamine, avoid driving if it makes you drowsy, if it doesn't improve in a day or so, see your doctor, be careful waxing , ...Read more

Can very dry skin cause red itchy bumps that look like bug bites? I'm getting sporadic red itchy bumps on face it's very dry and itchy!

Yes: Skin that is very dry can develop irritation. The best treatment would probably be to use a cream that is both an exfoliant and emollient. I generally recommend either a lactic or a glycolic acid cream to help get rid of the dry, rough skin. http://www.OmahaCosmeticSurgery.com ...Read more

Your age?: It is hard to tell without you giving us any detail on the history or even your age. Although itching often points to an allergic contact condition( hair preparations especially black hair dye) , it may also be from a skin cancer. Best to get them checked especially if you are over age 50. ...Read more
