Possobly hives: If the itchy bumps go away in 24 hrs, and then come back; or they have an appearance of " moving around", they are probably hives. But there are a lot of skin rashes looking like itchy bumps, like bug bites.... Better to consult a dermatologist or allergist to make a diagnosis. ...Read more

Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash. Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash. However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

Itchy palate: It could be allergies. Have you been treated for or diagnosed with seasonal allergies or an allergic reaction to certain meds. Gilberts syndrome does show the potential for itching w/o rash. I woulod consult your physician to determine if any further testing is necessary if it is something that happens frequently. ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

How long ?: How long have you had this problem? If it has been present for less than a couple of weeks, a viral infection or drug reaction may be the cause. See your doc if this goes beyond a couple of weeks or gets more severe. ...Read more

Best to see doctor: Hard to say without more information to help pin down the cause, and even then, rashes can be tough to diagnose without seeing them! i think i'd recommend a visit to your doctor. In the meantime, for the itching cool compresses, or lotions containing calamine or pramoxine would be good over-the-counter anti-itch treatment. ...Read more

Both forearms red with an itchy rash?

There are lots...: ...Of possibilities, but this time of year it is most likely to be an allergic response to something that came in contact with your arms, such as poison ivy, particularly if you've been working in the garden or camping or clearing weeds. Over-the-counter creams are too weak for such rashes, so let a dermatologist give you a precise diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

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
