i am a female,never had sex but lately been getting extremely itchy bumps on inner thighs that come and go, what could they be?

Bumps

It could be something simple as folliculitis which is infected hair follicles. You can try benzoyl peroxide topical wash or topical gel on it. Try not to shave until it is resolved.

What is a viral rash & how do I get rid of one? Causing red itchy bumps in random places that come & go. Doc said side effect of post-viral bronchitis

Antihistamines

Rash
Good morning, Viral rashes could vary in nature from macules and papules due to chicken pox and mononucleosis to hives, which can last for a long time. Red itchy bumps suggest hives. Viruses come to our body, enter the cells of different types and take over the management of the affected cells just like a new manager. Our immune system reacts by antibodies to reject them, and will eliminate them.

What could be the cause of itchy bumps all over the body(legs,arms,neck,top and bottom of feet, sometimes face and hands) that come and go?

Itchy red bumps

Extremity-foot
The description of itchy red bumps that come and go is very much the description of hives. Hives or urticaria is very common affecting 25% of people. Sometimes there is swelling. Causes are many and unfortunately treatments available are fewer. While hives are not dangerous or contagious, the itching can be very uncomfortable. Allergist or dermatologist can assist in diagnosis and treatment.

?eczema

If it is a chronic skin condition on your hands with itchy, red dry areas then I would think eczema is a strong possibility. See my web site www.KleinAllergy.com and click "Allergies and Asthma" so access info on eczema. A link is provided below. http://kleinallergy.com/allergies.html#6

How come I get itchy bumps on palms of hands?

Contact dermatitis

Extremity-upper-hand
Most itchy bumps/spots of the palms are due to a contact dermatitis, or irritation from some exposure in our day-to-day world. This includes anything from lotions to our clothes to our tools at work. If these are new I would think about new exposures you might have had. If it doesn't improve with cessation of those exposures then I would talk with your primary physician.

Bumps on my itchy elbows dont go away! what do i do?

Hyperkeratosis

Pruritis
When skin thickens on the elbows and knees it gets bumpy, rough and sometimes itch. This is best treated with a skin exfoliating cream. There are over-the-counter creams with 12% ammonium lactate to start with. However, sometimes you may need a prescription cream to help those really stubborn spots.

Itchy red bumps after shower that go away in an hour?

Everytime?

Some people develop hives after a hot shower and sometimes it can happen after swimming too, called cholinergic urticaria. Another hematological disease called polycythemia vera can also cause it. take a picture of the rash and show it to your doctor. Try taking taking an oral antihistamine 30 minutes before showering and see if it helps.You could also be reacting to the soap if it is new.

How come I get itchy red bumps on me all of a sudden?

Hives

Open-uri20131228-2346-w52owr
These itchy bumps may be hives due to allergy to agents taken internally(foods,medications,etc) or by exposure to external things(cold,exercise,etc) Insect bites may also be a cause. Keep a diary of what you ate or what you were doing when the itchy bumps appeared. Benadryl may offer relief but can cause drowsiness. Claritin is less effective but does not cause drowsiness.
