I have little red bumps on my back and my chest. They kind of look like flea bites but i'm not quite sure what they are. Can somebody please help me?

Agree w Dr Raff.: Flea bites may be clustered into 3 itchy bumps that bleed & blanch (turn white) when you press on them. They tend to be found at skin folds (breast or groin) & folds of joints (ankle, knee, elbow, axilla) as well as the legs. A rash may develop and swelling can occur as well as secondary infection from scratching. A skin biopsy is sometimes needed to make an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

My 1 month old son has developed rashes in form of small red bumps all over his body including face neck chest and back . What should I do ?

Baby acne?: It's likely to be baby acne at his age, assuming that he is otherwise well and feeding normally. Baby acne tends to occur right around this age and looks like red bumps that get redder and stand out more when baby is upset or just after a bath. This goes away on its own in a few weeks. It is caused by maternal hormones that crossed through the placenta. No treatment is needed. ...Read more

Possible: looking at the rash in the picture without actually seeing the patient will suspected a viral lesion condyloma contagiosum. This can occur in patients with weakened immune system if you took Prednisone. It will spread by scratching it. It will usually resolve after a long time without treatment. Use anti itch meds may help. A visit to a Dermatologist may clarify diagnosis and help in management ...Read more

Not at all: You should not worry before you have a test to determine if you have HIV or another sexually transmitted disease. Simply make an appointment with your doctor, discuss your sexual activity and ask for testing for STDs as well as for advice regarding safe sex. Do not be shy about doing this, we are all prepared to have these discussions and to address these concerns. You are part of a generation that seems to have a higher rate of anxiety about many things, health especially. It is not clear why this generation has such a high rate of anxiety or, as you call it, paranoia, but rest assured you are not alone. ...Read more
