I have a blotchy red raised rash that is very itchy on my right breast?

Should see doc: Many types of rash present in this way. If completely new, then my initial thoughts would be hives vs fungal infection vs contact allergy. Taking a short acting Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (antihistamine) may improve the itching, which would be indicative of hives. These would be most likely to persist (come and go) for 3-10 days. If so, then begin a longer acting med like cetirizine. OTC antifungal if scaling rash ...Read more

After 1 beer or glass of wine, I get an itchy, red, raised rash covering my entire left hip and thig?

After 1 beer or glass of wine, I get an itchy, red, raised rash covering my entire left hip and thig?

Sounds like hives: It sounds like you are having urticaria (hives) and I agree that it is probably an allergy to a preservative in the beer and wine- possibly sulfites. When it happens you can try taking an over-the-counter antihistamine like benedryl or zyrtec (cetirizine). Also consider seeing an allergist for allergy testing. Unfortunately it may be difficult to find beer or wine that is completely sulfite-free. ...Read more

I have a bruise on upper thigh with itchy raised rash its a white rash not red. Any ideas to what it could be?

See dermatologist: While my first thought is that this is a variety of lichen planus, you need to see a dermatologist for two reasons: first is to ascertain the correct diagnosis. Second: lichen planus may be associated with a number of underlying problems, including toxicity from medicines that you are taking and hepatitis C. If this is, in fact, lichen planus, it is likely to clear with topical cortisone. ...Read more

I have had a mild flu for 5 days & developed a rash today. Itchy red raised blotches neck trunk arms so far. Don't think it's shingles?

Probably not shingle: This most likely is not shingles, but you still may want to be assessed by your primary care physician. There are number of rashes associated with viral illnesses, and most are not serious, but some do need to be assessed and it would be the safest thing to run it by your primary if it does not resolve. ...Read more

Torso, arms, legs and back are covered in strange "rash" that looks like hickies. Not itchy, dry or raised. Has been spreading/multiplying for months?

Get it evaluated: I recommend getting this rash evaluated by a dermatologist. It could be a variety of skin eruptions including a long-standing reaction to a medicine, an inflammatory disorder (such as an autoimmune disorder, a lichenoid dermatitis, among many others), or a cutaneous malignant disorder (like a cutaneous lymphoma). Depending on what it looks like, you may need a biopsy to further characterize it. ...Read more

7 year old boy, flesh toned raised rash on face and torso. Does not itch at all. Do not appear to be blisters. Worried about staph or strep?

Monitor over time:: Staph/strep disease of the skin usually results in a localized collection of pus, known as an abscess, boil, or furuncle, depending upon the exact type of lesion that is present. The affected area may be red, swollen, and painful. Drainage or pus is common. When staph/strep is in the blood (bacteremia or sepsis), it can cause high fevers, chills, and low blood pressure. ...Read more

When I scratch or bump my skin, on any part of my body, a raised hot white itchy rash develops. What could cause this?

Hypersensitive skin: This could represent dermographism, where you can cause welts on your skin with pressure, like writing. Physical urticaria, or hives, also possible. I usually have someone try an oral anti-histamine for this problem. ...Read more

My son came out with a sudden temperature on Saturday January 17. The temperature subsided today, and now he has a slightly raised rash on his body. He has had roseola before, so I'm thinking this might be roseola too.

My son came out with a sudden temperature on Saturday January 17. The temperature subsided today, and now he has a slightly raised rash on his body. He has had roseola before, so I'm thinking this might be roseola too.

Or scarlet fever?: If the rash is generalized, including trunk, face and extremities, then a viral exanthem like roseola is likely. If the rash is very fine andmainly on the trunk of the body, and especially in the creases such as the axilla, groin, forearm and behind the knees and feels a little like fine sandpaper, it could be a strain of strep throat bacteria and an antibiotic would be indicated.

2yr old girl has raised, on itchy, bumpy rash that is skintone color all over her body. She had a fever few days proir. Developed rash two days ago.?

Need to see the rash: Rashes have different appearances and having a fever 2 days ago make it more likely to be infectious as a cause. I would suggest a consult and I can look at the rash and give you a possible diagnosis. If it is skin tone colored, it might be scarlet fever, and that would entail antibiotics, but it is hard to know without seeing the rash. ...Read more

Prickly itchy rash shows raised bumps, when scratch swell into raised strips. Lasts few mins. Affects diff area of body/hair & diff time. No reason.

Dermatographism: If your rash is a flat one and scratching it causing raised strip, you have dermatographism meaning that your skin is oversensitive. If it is bothersome, taking an otc antihistamine such as zyrtec (cetirizine) will likely control it. Else it is not a major health issue.
As always, mention this to your doctor when you see him/her next time. ...Read more

I've come out in a rash all over my body which is red and raised and when you touch it's warm and really itchy and I also have a blocked ear help??

Hives/Urticaria: Sounds like hives. Most common cause is infection (often very minor in nature) resulting in activation of innate immune/autoimmune pathways in skin that trigger mast cells. Usually, hives resolve and we never know the cause. For other causes: http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/137362-overview#aw2aab6b2b3aa. A virtual consult to discuss triggers can help. If no contraindications, try otc Zyrtec (cetirizine) ...Read more

Four yr old girl has a red raised rash covering 75% of her body once a month since infancy accompanied with a low grade fever any ideas?

Interesting: Red raised sounds like hives...And why monthly? Do not know. The low grade fever may be from the rash itself.... Do a diet chart and see if there is something that stands out...You will have to do it for a month. Consider allergy testing and seeing a chinese medicine practitioner...And immunologist as well. Hard to tell without seeing the rash what it really is. There are some cyclic disorders. ...Read more

Based on D history: You've given, heat rash is the primary consideration. It could be from skin sensitivity to the sun or from blood vessels opening up with increased blood flow after sun exposure.

My bf & I both have a rash on the right side of our necks and right inner elbows. The rashes are red, raised, and itchy. Any ideas what it is?

Allergic reaction?: If two normal healthy people start to get similar rashes on just the neck and part of one arm, and the bumps are itchy, red, and raised, it is likely that they have some allergic reaction. Reactions may be to poison oak, poison ivy, cosmetics, sunscreens, foods they shared, animals they petted, etc... It could also be "bugs" that bit them both, such as mosquitos or other insects. ...Read more
