Clotrimaderm/difluca: These are both antifungal agents. I have no way of knowing what you are being treated for, but you should certainly have been advised by the doctor who prescribed these. Give them a call and ask. Hope this helps.

Fever and fatigue, followed by itchy mosquito-like bumps on hands that spread? Allergies?

Infection: Viral or streptococcal. You should have a rapid step or throat culture to rule-out streptococcal throat infection. If negative you have a viral infection that requires only rest and supportive care. The photo shows a child with scarlet fever, a rash associated with streptococcal infection.

Itchy mosquito bite like bumps where the sun doesn't shine.? "is it possible to have skin cancer where the sun never shines? "

Yes, but: Skin cancer can occur at any site, it is more common in sun exposed areas. What you described does not fit with skin cancer. If the lesions persist for more than two weeks, you should consult your doctor to avoid getting the lesions infected.

Physical urticaria: Many people's skin releases histamine after physical stimuli, such as heat or scratching. If this is a continued problem for you, taking regular Claritin (loratadine) every day can help.

Skeeter syndrome: This is likely from an allergic reaction to mosquito saliva. The treatment is symptomatic-topical anesthetic or NSAID for pain and topical anti-itch agent for itching. If no cellulitis, antibiotic is not indicated. The lesions will eventually subside. Www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/mosquito.../con-20032350

When feeling itchy from a mosquito bite means you were just bitten, or the bump reaction takes 2-14 days to appear? Can't tell when I'm getting bit

When feeling itchy from a mosquito bite means you were just bitten, or the bump reaction takes 2-14 days to appear? Can't tell when I'm getting bit

Usually just bitten: A person can notice a mosquito bite right away, or within a few minutes. If she is asleep, it may take longer to notice. If bitten while sleeping, she should notice the bite upon waking up. A new mosquito bite should be visibly growing in size on the skin surface during the first couple of hours.

Everytime I get bit by a mosquito it leaves big hard itchy bumps on me and sometimes they hurt. Could it be that I'm allergic to them?

Everytime I get bit by a mosquito it leaves big hard itchy bumps on me and sometimes they hurt. Could it be that I'm allergic to them?

Yes: Nearly everyone becomes allergic sooner or later to mosquito venom after a few bites. Try antihistamine. Some people get a huge reaction called Skeeter's syndrome which may require more intense treatment but neither is life-threatening.

These bumps look like mosquito bites, but aren't itchy and they're all around my 6 year olds face?

These bumps look like mosquito bites, but aren't itchy and they're all around my 6 year olds face?

May be bites: Mosquito bites don's have to itch, this is the season for bites, and whether they itch or not depends on an individual's reaction to the mosquito saliva that is injected when they bite you. Some people have dramatic swelling and itching, others have little to no reaction. Keep an eye on these and if they look like they are fading, great! If not get then checked.

ForgiveMe4BeingNosey: Don't mess with it, waddaya think? Don't mess with it for another month or two. Resist scratching it, or fooling with it or touching it, or scraping it with a comb. If after waiting, it's still there, then have a doctor look at it to assess for size, color (s), borders, etc. Of course, you said the bump is on your head. The head includes ears and face. So if this bump is on the end of your nose....

Hives??: If they occur on random parts all over your body, then it is likely hives. Have you seen your doctor during an acute episode? If not, take pictures and bring to your doctor for a firm diagnosis.

ITCHY BACKSIDE: More history helpful but sounds like some form of dermatitis; skin inflammation after contact with something to which your body (skin) is overly sensitive. Since it appears from your description to be localized to one place, you might try a combination of topical (skin cream/ointment) Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Hydrocortisone. Let me know how that works... if not affective... we can discuss other options.

Itchy bumps that look like mosquito bites all over legs, new ones pop up. It's not a mosquito bite because there is no bug on me.

Dermatitis: Most likely a contact dermatitis from something that was in contact with your legs or possibly a lotion that was put on your legs. See a health provider if it worsens or persists.
