Moisturizer: You may just have dry skin which can be helped by applying moisturizer on your skin within 3 mins after bathing and again about 12 hrs later +/- bathing. Avoid antibacterial and scented soap. If this still does not help, see a dermatologist.

Raised itchy area of skin on back, small area and I don't think the bumps have fluid in them, could it be a heat rash or?

Can be anything: Try some Hydrocortisone cream for a few days. If it does not work, see your doctor. The cause may never be known however although a viral infection or drug reaction needs be ruled out.

Rash: It sounds like it maybe a fungal infection similar to what a diaper rash would be. Occurs often if u sweat a lot, thighs rub against each other and occurs often in diabetic patients.

Seen 2 derms-no answers. Rash mostly on back/sides. Itchy bumps when scratchd follow ¼-2" cut line under skin. Crawly on face. Antifungal wash helps some.

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

A: A rash on your penis definitely warrants medical investigation, meaning a trip to your doctor. You could be dealing with something as simple as an allergic reaction/dermatitis or something more worrisome like an std. Regardless I can't make a good guess without seeing the area in question. Also you may need testing depending on your doctor's diagnosis. Best of luck.

Eczema vs infection: This rash could be a dry skin patch like eczema that is now becoming a superficial skin infection. It is important that this be evaluated by a physician to determine the correct treatment. Eczema can be treated with topical steroids and moisturizers while an infection requires antibiotics.

I have itchy skin every where no dry skin and when it itches it starts to burn and get red but no bumps or rash what is this?

Well: It gets red and itches then goes away, no rash or bumps. It could be a rash or what is called idiopathic urticaria, release of inflammation due to stress. Oddlly enough sometimes an h-2 bkocker like tagamet for the the stomach can help. It may be allergic reaction or something else and I would not avoid seeing a doctor. I would trey Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and tagamet is pretty cheap. Look up idiop.

Tiny, itchy bumps all over body. Do not look like a rash & are not in the usual places for scabies, but could it be? Maybe from tanning or dry skin?

Allergy?: Good morning, tant itchy rash with red bumps suggests that your immune system is trying to reject something such as an allergen or a virus. The itching is a signal that something is not right. Dry skin often causes itching, but rarely a rash. Tanning could trigger some rash. Finding the cause is the first order of business, please see your doctor. Moisturizing creams such as cerave may be of hel.

Pimples in glands: Direct clinical examination is required. A red bump is an infection, ANT may be required. A plain pimple, is usually present in 10-20 % of the male population, sometimes 2-4 may be present. They require no treatment. Some patients however, may request therapy to alleviate anxiety or for aesthetic reasons. Ablation using carbon dioxide laser,

Itchy: Two choices: 1: Go to the nearest Pharmacy and they are very likely to recommend some cream or similar. Cost is low. 2: If you don't like that idea please go to the nearest Emergency facility. Not my first choice.

Probably unrelated: You may possibly have contracted scabies from the contact but there are also other potential causes unrelated to the sexual contact. See a doctor if this has been presented for more than 3 days or been getting worse.

Rash: Sounds like an urticarial rash. Hives are a red, rasied, scattered and intensely itchy rash resembling mosquito bites. Treatment is to remove the inciting agent, and to use topical anti-itch and oral non-sedating antihistamines.

Rash: The description of the rash isn't sufficient to make a diagnosis without examining you. A possibility would be insect bites. If the rash doesn't resolve or if new lesions appear see your physician or a dermatologist for diagnosis and advice.

Diaper rash: If your baby wears diapers with an elastic band, she may have a latex allergy. Without seeing a picture olof the rash however, one can only speculate.
