Pimple Like Rash On Back
Keratosis pilaris: Is a common skin condition that causes rough patches and small, acne-like bumps, on the arms, thighs, cheeks and buttocks. These bumps do no generally scar unless they are traumatized by excessive scratching. Dark spots that may remain after resolution or treatments usually fade on their own over time.
Pinky Tiny Pimples-like Rashes on the back of both hands & starts to feel itchy after few hours...spreading to arm slowly...can I take Cetirizine?
You could but..: A better choice might be diphenhydramine (Benadryl) but the cetirizine is less likely to make you drowsy so you can start with that and if it doesn't work try the diphenhydramine. You can also try 1% hydrocortisone cream that you can get at the store on the rash to see if that alleviates the itching and the spread of the rash.See 1 more doctor answer

Woke up with a pimple like rash on my upper back. It’s limited to this area. Doesn’t itch or hurt. Back of neck sore but slept on it weird, I think.
Rash: Since the rash is limited to your back and if it is on both sides of the spine, it could be a type of heat rash. A viral rash like shingles stays on one side only. Have a physician examine you if the rash persists or spreads.
I have a pimple-like, non-itchy, rash on my back. Not red or visible from far. Spread to whole back over 2 weeks. No new products or other symptoms.?
Rashes need exam for: Diagnosis. Since it is not itchy or red and located just on the back, it does not sound like allergic reaction or viral exanthema. A common cause of papules on the back is miliaria, or heat rash, which is caused by blocked sweat pores. Alternatively, dry skin can cause blockage of the hair follicle and cause small papules or keratosis pilaris. This is benign, and is commonly seen on upper arms

I take duacc and minocycline for back acne (its worked) but ever since I started exercising I noticed im getting pimples. What do I do?
Back acne: The best over the counter treatment for back acne may be a benzoyl peroxide wash. I recommend 10 percent. One should use it daily. It will ruin one's towels. Often, oral antibiotics are needed and even accutane. If scarring is present do not delay seeing a dermatologist to prevent further scarring. Www. Drbader. Com.

Can back acne (2-3 pimples that had some pus but healed in 2 days) be a symptom of ars (hiv)? Can hives be caused by ars (hiv)?

I use lotion & sometimes face moisturizer. I also use oil free face cleanser. Am I doing something wrong? B/c I have back acne and pimples on my face
Lotion may clog pore: The lotion may be clogging your pores. Try doing without the lotion and see if it makes a difference, On the other hand, it could be hormonal. May or may not apply to you, but sometimes going on or off birth control or changing pills may affect acne. Try these suggestions for starters. Regards, Dr. Lebowitz
