Sounds like: Insect bites! Look around your bedding etc Just a thought! Dr Z
Rash: It needs to be examined for proper treatment.
Antihistamines: Hives tend to move and migrate, come an go, are itching, and usually don't last for more than 24 hours. 1st generation antihistamines will work the fastest, such as benadryl (diphenhydramine). For longer lasting effect, taking a daily 2nd generation antihistamine such as zyrtec, claritin, or allergra will be helpful. If they persist, seeing an allergist would be helpful for prescription medications and work up.
Itchy, tiny red bumps all over body for two months and my doctors thought it was a prescription allergy. What could be wrong?
Tiny, itchy bumps all over body. Do not look like a rash & are not in the usual places for scabies, but could it be? Maybe from tanning or dry skin?
Allergy?: Good morning, tant itchy rash with red bumps suggests that your immune system is trying to reject something such as an allergen or a virus. The itching is a signal that something is not right. Dry skin often causes itching, but rarely a rash. Tanning could trigger some rash. Finding the cause is the first order of business, please see your doctor. Moisturizing creams such as cerave may be of hel.
Believed to have eczema or HPV, cavity at the end of my penis head, it is now healed and bumps all over body itchy. Imiquin was diagnosed.
Here are some...: I hope you got right diagnosis for the described area at the glans penis. In fact, imiquimod is not a diagnosis but a drug to treat genital wart, superficial basal cell carcinoma, or actinic keratosis. To verify what it is, a set of more detailed history and a direct look at it is essential. More? Ask doctor...
Woke up at night with pressure in ears diarrhea, vomiting, itchy bumps all over body. Fine the next day. Has happened 4x's in life -27 yr male?
Episodes: This sounds almost like an allergic reaction of some sort. Try to keep a diary of what you have eaten and been exposed to just prior the episodes and see if you can pinpoint cause. It happens so rarely, that this may be difficult. Good to hear you are fine and that it is short duration however!
Red itchy bumps all over body (except face & genitalia) for 3 months now, esp after stress, waxing, & physical effort. I have asthma & allergies. Help?
Had an upset stomach (tight, gurgling) & diarrhea for 2-3 days. Now have very small red bumps all over body, mildly itchy. Not sure how to alleviate?
Try: Try. Hydrocortisone otherwise see dermatologist. This is probably from echovirus.
Itchy bumps: The causes are numerous, I suggest you see a doctor for a proper diagnosis to treat it correctly.
Take antihistamines: Start by taking a cool shower and apply a safe anti-itch lotion such as Sarna with pramoxime. Also, take a non-sedating antihistamine during the day, such as fexofenadine (Allegra) 180mg and at night cetirizine (Zyrtec) 10mg or diphenhydramine 25mg (Benadryl). If no better with 3-4 days, see your physician.
Bumps: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes.
Skin rashes: Skin rashes need to be seen and evaluated. If the rashes do not last more than 24 hours at a time, it may be hives. You can try taking otc anti histamine if that is the case. If the rashes are there several days, it can be dermatitis due to any reason. Use moisturizer, avoid irritant like soap will help. In any case, you should come see a local physician for evaluation of skin rashes.
