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. Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash. However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

I have a red bump on my upper back that hurts and never had one before? It looks like a pimple but I have never had a pimple like this.And never had pimples/acne on my back just wondering if it could be a bite or somthing else.
Without : Without examining you, its hard to say for certain what you have, but the red, painful lump you are experiencing could be a boil. Boils usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should see your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. ...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?

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't scrub: Please don't scrub your back! your skin is not a pot, it should not be scrubbed. In the long run that will only make your acne worse. Back skin is second only to the soles of your feet in thickness, so most of the time an oral medication is necessary to control it effectively. Topical medications have very limited efficacy on the back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lots of ways: Back pimples are a turn-off for some women and if this is the case, you want to get treated. I have had a great deal of success with topical Clindamycin for patients; my own acne was severe and i spent many years on tetracycline with good results. Failing that, a dermatologist is needed to prescribe accutane. There's no reason that in the 21st century your acne can't be controlled. ...Read more
