Read up on...: Cholinergic urticaria. See if this is what you have. If I'm way off, please forgive me, write back with more details & maybe one of us can make an educated guess -- though diagnosing rashes without seeing them is a challenge. Best wishes. ...Read more

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?

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

There are small red bumps on my chest and I try to get rid on it for the past 3 days, do I need to go to a hospita?

Not an emergency: Doesn't sound like an emergency to me. Cool compresses might help. Find out if there is something that you are ingesting, applying locally, (sun screen?) or maybe your detergent or fabric softener. Could be an allergic reaction to a medicine that you are taking. A doctor's visit should do the trick. It will save you lots of time and money over going to the emergency room ...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

Small red bumps some have a white head on them. Started on upper chest and now on arms. What could this be?

Small red bumps some have a white head on them. Started on upper chest and now on arms. What could this be?

Doctor can evaluate: Bumps may be conditions such as keratosis pilaris, eczema, comedones, or folliculitis. Each would have a different treatment, so a primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate and give some recommendations. Rashes are hard to describe in words. Little white heads are more likely folliculitis. If recently using a hot tub, such a rash could be due to that. ...Read more

I'm worried I have hiv. Right now I have 2 small mouth ulcers and small red bumps on my back and chest that don't itch. Also I have a headache. Its been 2 weeks since I had unprotected oral sex. I am a paranoid person so how worried should I be?

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
