Rash starts with white pustule, evolves into itchy cigarette burn style rash. had it for years on back and legs?

Sounds like Impetigo

Leg
This sounds like Impetigo, a bacterial infection of the skin caused by Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes. Have your doctor culture a lesion and inside your nose. If a culture is positive topical treatment and decolonization would be indicated.

I have a rash on my buttock...red, itchy and a few pustules...I have a picture - is there any way you could look at it and tell me what it might be?

No good way

Itching
It is difficult to tell what may be causing your problem since the most important part of making a diagnosis is getting a good history. For example, were you exposed to an environment full of insects prior to the rash? Did the pustules occur at the sites where you had scratched ? You need to see a doctor to sort this out.

I'm 23 weeks pregnant with my fifth child. I have an itchy red rash on my buttocks. Red raised, no blisters or pustules. What should I do?

Try hydrocortisone

Rash
It the rash looks like an even red throughout then it is most likely in the eczema family and 2.5% hydrocortisone cream should help. If the rash appears to be clearing in the middle then you may have a fungal infection so I would rub lamisil cream into rash with the hydrocortisone.

I was woundering what the small itchy blisters that come and go all over my body could be from?

Blisters

Blistering
There are about 1000 different causes of blisters on the body. Diagnosis of these depends upon the person's history, look of the blisters, and distribution of blisters. Some people actually misinterpret these being blisters when in fact they're little pustules with infection. In short, you've got to see a dermatologist to get a diagnosis.

I have itchy white lumps appearing on my thigh & lower back. What could they be?

Folliculitis? Heat?

Open-uri20120819-8572-2mmdpm
Folliculitis is tiny pustules where the hair follicles are. Heat rash is related to sweating a lot, with or without "blocked" sweat glands or oil glands. Other times it's related to sports equipment friction, bacteria, moisture, etc... Being in a hot tub can lead to a "hot tub" rashes. Rashes are quite difficult to describe in words, so a doctor needs to look at the rash to make a diagnosis.

Itchy red raised circles on 6 year old, I've had them to, is this staph?

Sounds like hives

Staphylococcal_infection
This sounds more like an allergic reaction to a food or other trigger. Staph is more likely to have individual bite like pustules that become inflamed at one local, develop a head & may drain like a volcano erupting. A visit to your doc can determine which is most likely.

Hand swollen and red after fire ant bites...itchy...am I allergic?

Possible

Extremity-upper-hand
Hard to tell as the fire ant bite is often red swollen and itchy just like really allergy. The protein component of the venom is indeed allergenic so subsequent stings may lead to progressively more severe reactions. If this happens see your doc.

Can ringworm cause bumps on the face? Skin-color no puss not itchy just ugly

Yes

Face
Ringworm on the face is known as the "great masquerader" so yes it can cause bumps, round scaly patches, pustules and more. Tinea faciale (ring worm) often itches or burns but can be asymptomatic. Consider visiting with a Dermatologist to make sure it is not something else that will not respond to anti fungal therapy.

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and have an itchy rash on my arms and thighs. I also itch under my belly where my pants sit..

Pupp?

Scarlet_fever
Call your OB or dermatologist. Pregnant women can rashes due to infections and allergic reactions. However, puritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPP) is a common cause of rashes in late pregnancy.
