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. ...Read more

Itchy or not?: If not itchy but sore, see your doctor to determine whether a topical antibiotic may be needed. If itchy and not oozing, try topical hydrocortisone. It is hard to say what it may be with so little information and no direct examination. ...Read more

Many causes: Rashes are challenging even when the doctor can see them, so even harder in this forum. Small red bumps on both legs make me think of reactions to clothes, or something in contact with that area on both sides. Bites can do it. It could be heat rash, a reaction of the skin to warmth and occlusion from pressure. Some drug reactions can do that as can conditions like eczema and psoriasis. ...Read more

Itchy rash on back of neck and in hairline also on lower back?

Itchy back: You might be allergic to your shampoo or another hair care product. Without a medical exam it would be difficult to say. Consider using only a non sensitizing shampoo such as free and clear and avoid other treatments. If that doesn't work seek out a board certified allergist or dermatologist. ...Read more

Depends: It is hard to tell even with direct examination but impossible without a more detailed description. Having said that, most rash tends to be transient. However if it lasts more than 2 weeks or gets bothersome enough, see your doctor. ...Read more

Brown itchy rash on lower abdomen, lower back and tops of legs starts off pinkish becomes extremely itchy then turns brown?

Rash: A rash is best diagnosed and treated when it is visualized by a doctor, who can then make an appropriate recommendation. If the itch is driving you crazy, try topical Hydrocortisone cream, an oral antihistamine to calm down itch, and cool showers or baths until you can see the doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
