Lots of things: Rashes are nearly impossible to diagnose correctly without seeing them, especially with so little information. Is it light or dark? Raised, flat, or depressed? Fine bumps? Big welts? Does it blanch when you push on it or no? Are you sick or well? What other symptoms do you have? If it bothers you, and to get it properly diagnosed, see your doctor.

Have a itchy rash with lumps on side under armpit, have also been feeling very weak and tired.

Have a itchy rash with lumps on side under armpit, have also been feeling very weak and tired.

See doctor: A skin rash with systemic symptoms is usually troublesome. If the weakness or fatigue persists for more than a week, you need to see your doctor. On the other hand, a viral infection may cause these symptoms but usually improves within 10 days.

I have a non itchy rash on my left arm and chest that spread to my neck and back over night. What could it be?

Many causes: If it lasts for less than a couple of weeks, then I won't pay much attention to it. But if it gets painful, it may be from shingles and you need to see your doctor ASAP to get started on an anti-viral drug to reduce potential complications. Suspect shingles if the rash does not extend beyond the mid-line of the body.

I have this itchy rash like in my chest just right near my arm pit. It so itchy what can I do. It scars and it shows wen I wear sleeveless.

Cannot say: You need to see a dermatologist to make a diagnosis and prescribe a treatment regimen. If he or she does not know what it is you may even need a skin biopsy, although that is unlikely.

Depends: What you have is a skin rash which may sometimes be loosely called eczema by some. The potential causes range from a contact allergy, fungal infection to psoriasis. If topical hydrocortisone does not help, you would need to consult your doctor or a dermatologist.

Real bad itchy rash on arm by wrist. That's spreading n I itched them so bad they r open n pus comes out. N they be burning. Itch bad. Help swell a lil?

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) & see a doc: If the rash is bad, and especially if there is pus coming out, you should be seen by a doctor as soon as possible. In the meantime, otc Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (25-50mg every 4-6hrs for an adult) can relieve itching and swelling, but may make you feel sleepy, so be careful driving, etc.
