Rash on back of hands and arms to elbow started with red raised skin and tiny itchy blisters that release clear liquid that causes flaking hot skin?
I have an itchy spot on the back of my scalp the size of a ping pong ball. Scalpicin hasn't worked.
I believe Scalpicin: contains very low dose hydrocortisone. This is a reasonable first-line treatment for one of the most common causes of an itchy scalp spot: seborrheic dermatitis. But it may not be strong enough or the spot could be a sign of psoriasis or other skin disease. I believe your next step is to see Dermatologist, make sure of the diagnosis, and possibly get prescription strength medication. Good wishes:) ...Read more
My 21 yr old daughter periodically gets itchy raised scabs in the back of her head in her hair. They bleed when she scratches & scalp reddens.
My daughter woke up this a.m. with a painless raised red, itchy, swollen spot on the back of her L. hand. I'm worried this may be a spider bite, help.
Mystery bites: Based on your description, this could be a spider bite (but very unlikely to be a dangerous one), or a bite from insect, flea, etc. Sometimes bumps like this represent skin infections which may NOT come from bites. If it looks bad to you now, have a doc look at it today. If looks okay now but increases in size, develops red streaks toward the wrist, or she gets new symptoms, see a doc right away ...Read more

My husband has multiple light red spots on his back, not itchy, not raised. We noticed it after he showered. Should we be concerned?
Concerned enough: You should be concerned enough to have your doctor take a look at it, diagnose and treat it if necessary. Off hand, it's unlikely to be something serious, but why be concerned unnecessarily? On the other hand, why ignore something that you should be concerned about? Again, it's best to know for sure what the rash is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
