I've had an itchy spot on my face for about a week now that won't seem to go away. No redness but I see/feel some light bumps... What could it be?

Allergy? Herpes?

Hydrocortisone
It could be localized allergic req tion or a variant of herpes simplex.If it is mild you could try hydrocortisone cream for 1-2 days. If it persists or gets worse see your doctor.

I have a small rash ory dy itchy spot on my breast for almost two weeks it itches but bo redness or swell or pain what can I use to heal it?

Eczema or ringworm?

Itch
Dry and itchy spot is probably eczema. You could try 1% hydrocortisone cream OTC for a week. If that does not help then an topical antifungal for 2 weeks could help with ring worm. If neither don't work then a trip to your doctor id warrented.

I've recently started getting really itchy all over my body but the worse spot is my stomach, back and my thighs. there are no noticable bumps or rashes but when i do end up itching them i get some pretty extreme welts. what could possibly be causing this

Dermatographism

Itch
Your condition sounds like Dermatographism. This is a type of Urticaria (Hives). It normally resolves in a few months, but some patients may persists with symptoms for years. Treatment with anti-histamines like Zyrtec or Allegra are usually very effective. Be sure to consult with your Dermatologist to confirm your diagnosis and evaluate you for possible triggers.

Dry red spot appeared on skin by hip, rash covering my body followed. Red, circular, ITCHY, spots from neck to groin, front and back. Help!!

Rash

Dermatitis
Sounds like it could be Pityriasis Rosea a non dangerous self limiting rash in younger people. Google it and see if it matches. However, you should see a dermatologist to confirm this and to make sure you are not dealing with anything else. Hope this helps.

2 red spots where the line of the vagina starts above the clitoris in between the line red,itchy and both in exact spot in opp sides? Shaving caused ?

Could be

Pruritis
these could definitely be because of shaving, just irritation. at the same time, if you had unprotected sex, you need to watch the spots, and if they grow, start to weep or have pus, please see your primary care provider. in the future, please use protection.

Been experiencing small red rashes and/or lumps on the inside of my left elbow only, vary in size. Usually not itchy, but always in the same spot.?

Need more info

Dermatology is pretty visual, so it's hard to know what is going on without seeing it. Eczema, psoriasis, and urticaria (hives) can develop around the elbows, though eczema and hives tend to be itchy. Sometimes an irritant or mild allergic contact dermatitis can present in the same place as well. I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist to help solve this one.

You have a Staph infection. This is urgent and needs attention at your physician's office today. Until proven otherwise this is the drug resistant form of MRSA. Please call your family doctor today.
