I have a red itchy rash that looks like mosquito bites. Some of it has clustered on my arm. It is located on my wrists, arms, and stomach. ?

Bedbugs or virus

Stomach
While viral illness could be the cause, don't forget about bedbug ties. Also need to consider what medications/vitamins have recently been taken.

How did i suddenly get an itchy rash? Are all sudden itchy rashes allergic in nature?

Rashes

Rash
Most allergic rashes are itchy however, not all itchy rashes are allergic. A good example is scabies that is cause by an arthroppod (insect) that tunnels beneath the skin. Ask your Primary Care provider to evaluate the rash first, seek a Dermatologists opinion if the PCP can not determine the cause.

What might this be? an itchy rash like cluster of bumps on my lower back just above my buttocks. It looks a lot like a bunch of mosquito bites.

How long?

If it lasts over 6 weeks, see an allergist. If it is short term, try some OTC antihistamine up to 4 x the regular frequency but watch out for drowsiness. Otherwise topical hydrocortisone cream should be tried. If it still did not work, see an allergist.

Allergies

Patients with allergies can develop red and itchy skin around the eyes and on the eyelids from allergies. Behind the knees and on the inside part of the elbow too.This skin condition is called allergic dermatitis or allergic eczema. You can use a hypoallergenic cream/lotion: Cetaphil or Lubriderm and consider contacting your medical doctor about taking allergy pills-such as Claritin or Allegra.

We have moved to Houston, Katy a week ago. My son and I were having unbearable itchy rashes? What is the reason? Looks like hives, sores, ....

Contact vs bug

Itching
Both of you are itching badly , it is from a bug or a contact dermatitis. The pattern of the rash should tell you. Claritin in am. Benadryl in the pm. Hydrocortisone cream 1% twice daily.

Can food allergies, including to cucumbers or berries, cause itchy rashes on neck, back, legs? (does not look like hives)

Rash

Hives
your rash may or may not be related to food allergies and the foods you mentioned, especially cucumbers, are rarely associated with this type of rash. I think you need to have your rash examined to determine what it is

I get big red itchy rashes all over my chest and arms but their not bites, is it possible that im getting it from stress?

Possible, but

Scabies
It's possible for stress to lead to hives, etc. It's also possible for dyes in clothing and/or laundry detergents to cause this; so can using a new soap or other product on yourself. You may want to see your physician if this is happening frequently.

What are these very small, short lived rashes? I am a male, 23 years old, and I have been getting these random red marks that look like itchy rashes.

Hives

these can be hives and they come and go as they please. they usually resolve on their own, and you can take an over the counter antihistamine to help you with the itch, such as Allegra or Zyrtec. If they persist, see your doctor
