I have small red itchy bumps on my back and near my ribs what is it?

Outbreaks of itchy: red bumps are very common and have many different causes: allergy related hives, especially if you've contacted something new (natural/leaves/plant or artificial/household chemicals). A red itchy rash can go along with being sick (chicken pox/impetigo) or parasites (scabies). Try some OTC cortisone cream and antihistamine for a day or two. .. then to Derm if persists. Good wishes:)

Yes: You may be allergic to one of the ingredients. Another possibility is the anti-static strip if you do use it when drying your clothes. Try some hydrocortisone cream on the itchy areas. In the meanwhile, try another brand of laundry detergent. Once you are sure that you don't have a reaction to it (takes several days), then you will need to rewash everything touched by the old detergent.

You got bit by: Some ticks. I would consider going to see a primary care provider if it doesn't go away with over the counter steroid creams (hydrocortisone). They may get bigger and itch worse.

Urticaria: Some people develop urticaria in hot water. So try to avoid hot water; (try lukewarm instead.). Use a mild soap when bathing & cool compresses on the hives.

Lots of causes: For your rash. Commonly, allergic rash present as itchy bumps. Yeast, bacteria or ringworm can aslo occur. Shingles are usually localized and painful bumps. Less common are Lupus or drug reaction. Please consult dermatologist. Please call Healthtap to schedule a video-consult with a skin specialist.

No way to tell: It 'd be best for you to consult a dermatologist unless these bumps have been present for a very short time and have resolved with topical hydrocortisone. The cause of a skin rash is not easy to pinpoint especially when one does not know what it looks like.

Might be scabies: Rashes are hard to diagnose without seeing them. Sounds like a disease caused by tiny mites. Would need a special medicine.

Itchy or not?: If not itchy but sore, see your doctor to determine whether a topical antibiotic may be needed. If itchy and not oozing, try topical hydrocortisone. It is hard to say what it may be with so little information and no direct examination.

Every time I wear a "cheap" necklace I get itchy bumps on the back of my neck. How do I make them go away?

Stop wearing it: Cortisone cream will help the reaction heal. Coat the necklace and any other nickel-containing materials you wear with clear nail polish to prevent your skin (immune system) from coming in contact with nickel.
