Suddenly developed itchy white bumps covering my buttocks and out towards my thighs. Have lasted 5 days now. Don't pop like a pimple would.

Itchy bumps: Bay City, MI is a nice place - enjoy!

With the itchy white bumps you could contact your primary doctor or, in my opinion better still, please go to the Pharmacist and they will almost certainly recommend something to control your buttocks etc. I don't think you will need a prescription.

Hope all goes well - please keep me posted. ...Read more

My 7 year old son has a red pimple looking rash on his chin but it is not itchy. Any suggestions?

My 7 year old son has a red pimple looking rash on his chin but it is not itchy. Any suggestions?

Yes: Leave it alone. My rule of thumb is, if a rash bothers the patient, it needs to be treated. If the rash bothers the patient's mother but the patient is otherwise fine, it can be watched to see if it improves on its own. Often, they do. If it shows no sign of getting better or it bothers him, see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a slightly large pimple like sore on my back. It's not itchy but it is painful. Could it be from a spider bite?

Unlikely: Most common lesion on the back as you described is a pimple or sebaceous cyst. Both of which are localized skin infections/inflammations.
