Many possibilities.: You don't say how long it's been there, but this time of year it could be as simple as a bug bite. If it hasn't been there long, give it a few days to go away. If it has been present longer than a week, let your doctor or a dermatologist have a look at it. ...Read more

Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash.

Recent rash?: This may be from a viral infection or a drug reaction. If the problem goes away after 10 days, don't worry about it. If the rash persists, then see a dermatologist. If pus is present , consider impetigo It is unlikely to be an allergic reaction in the absence of itching. ...Read more

Have a rash on my left wrist itches and burn sometime pus?

Allergy or infection: A wrist rash that is itchy and sometimes oozes moisture or liquid may be an infection (such as bacteria or herpes) or may be a significant allergy (such as to a bracelet or watchband). A doctor may want to look at the rash a few times to figure things out. It helps to see the rash when it starts, when it is at its worse, and after it has resolved. ...Read more

I had surgery on my left wrist on the 11th. The orange stuff they used caused a very itchy rash and I told them I was allergic to betadine. Any ideas?

? iodide allergy: It sounds like a possible allergy to iodides (iodine-containing substances). If there is a rash in areas which were coated by the "orange stuff", that represents a "contact dermatitis". Contact the surgeon to confirm it was an iodinated substance, and note for the future your iodine allergy. ...Read more

Can you tell me some difference, I am a teenager with acne, but i don't know how that could make me get a rash, usually on my arms/wrists?

Can you tell me some difference, I am a teenager with acne, but i don't know how that could make me get a rash, usually on my arms/wrists?

Likely not related: You can have a zillion other reasons for having a rash on your arms and wrists, nothing at all to do with the fact you have acne elsewhere. If your primary doctor has not been able to diagnose the rash and help you, then I suggest an appointment with a dermatologist so that you can get appropriate treatment. If haven't seen your primary care doctor about it, make appointment there first. ...Read more
