Rash on 2 year old butt and lower back that look like zits. What do I do?

Rash on 2 year old butt and lower back that look like zits. What do I do?

Variety of causes: The "zits" description leaves a lot to the imagination. This could be bites (flea, ant), yeast (candida albicans), hives (allergic) or a mild skin infection from skin germs, or bites originally that became infected later. If these do not fade over a few days and or continue to enlarge or incrase in number, an office evaluation is worth while. Read more

I have a spot on my lower back that doesn't hurt but its like a pimple and u can squeeze puss out. Should I be worried about it?

Skin lesion: If u can express pus from lesion, best to have it checked & treated. With so MRSA now in the community, it's best not to take chances. See doc; give good history: how long it's been there, bleeding? Pus? Pain? Redness? Fever? Insect bite prior to appearance? Read more

Small back bumps: Could be folliculitis which is an infection of hair follicle, a sebacous cyst or sebacous gland infection (acne), rarely a wart or growth. Would have it checked out by doctor /urgent care, as they can enlarge. May improve with antibiotics either topical like bacitracin or oral. Read more

The skin tone on my stomach, chest, neck, and lower back is uneven. Occassionally bumps similar to pimples will appear too. I have a history with eczema. What can I do to get rid of this?

The skin tone on my stomach, chest, neck, and lower back is uneven. Occassionally bumps similar to pimples will appear too. I have a history with eczema. What can I do to get rid of this?

See Your Doctor: Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition; causes dry, itchy areas; treated with topical steroids, moisturizers & more. Once the eczema clears, involved skin may become lighter due to loss of pigmentation. Return of pigmentation can takes wks to yrs. Treatment involves watchful waiting while using cosmetic cover-ups, laser, & more. Pimples sound unrelated; visual exam is needed. See your doctor. Read more

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?

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. Read more
