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

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.

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?

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

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
