Allergy to bactrim, I was using an albuterol sulfate inhaler. I have muscle aches, large itchy bumps, and abdominal pain. These two allergies related?

No: Sulfa in Bactrim is entirely different from sulfate which is rather inert. Muscle spasm may result from albuterol especially when used above the recommended dose or frequency but would not account for the itchy bumps. I suspect that your problem is likely from a viral infection but do consult your doctor if the problem gets worse or persists for more than a few days. ...Read more

Folliculitis: Small itchy red bumps that then develop a white head and appear in crops may be an infection of the hair follicles called folliculitis. Folliculitis is commonly caused by bacteria on the skin. Warm compresses may be applied to the rash but often it will resolve on it's own. Avoid shaving the affected region until the rash clears. ...Read more

Allergic reaction: Either from an insect bite or from the food that you ate. Did you use any Bug Repellent spray? Rx Benadryl or Claritin like drug.

I have an itchy bump within my pubic hair. It is about half a centimetre large. It is hard and doesn't produce any puss. What could it be?

I have an itchy bump within my pubic hair. It is about half a centimetre large. It is hard and doesn't produce any puss. What could it be?

Cyst: It is probably a seborrheic (coming from oil glands) or epidermal inclusion cyst, both benign lesions. It is probably itchy because of surrounding dry skin. It doesn't sound like the worrisome things: cancer/infection. Both of these would likely have open or irregular surfaces, be draining, or be darkly pigmented. You can put some Aquaphor or Vaseline on it. Still questions? Have your doc check:) ...Read more

Lump: One would want to know if it is hard and fixed or is it freely moveable. Any discharge from nipple or skin changes around lesion. Any family history of breast cancer? How long has it been there. Are you breast feeding? Sounds like a cyst or abscess forming but you would need to be checked out in person so the right treatment could be started on you. Hope this helps ...Read more
