Need more informatio: May be related to the fact you're standing in the blood is pooling, but with the presence of patches of red and raised there are other things we think of. We see this sometimes and people who have elevated immuno globulins call hyperglobulinemia Purpura. You need to discuss with your physician whether it's something as simple as blood pooling or the elevated globulins or something else

What could a red raised itchy patch of skin on the back of the neck be?

What could a red raised itchy patch of skin on the back of the neck be?

Eczema vs dermatitis: This sounds like inflammation of the skin localized to one spot. Dermatitis is a fancy term for inflammation of the skin. Try treating with either a topical steroid such as Cortaid (hydrocortisone) or an anti-itch lotion such as sarna or sarna for sensitive skin. If this does not resolve it, see your doctor.

Suspect fungus: I agree it sounds like fungus but if it dies not respond you can try ketoconazole topcially. If not successul you will need to see a dermatologist. Itis a papulosquamous dermatitis and other causes like psoriasis can be there

What could red, raised patch of bumps on chest that feel like mosquito bites with surrounding skin turning black be?

Many possibilities: Including infection, insect bites, contact dermatitis, and others. Without a full history and ability to examine these it is impossible to diagnose. Go see a primary care physician or a dermatologist.

Photdermatitis: We no longer recommend "tanning sessions" as the long term damage to the skin and the increase in skin cancers is a national problem. You may have a photodermatitis or a photocontact dermatitis or a systemic disease. You should have it evaluated by a dermatologist.

My daughter (age 9), had developed a red spotty patch on her back that is growing with time. I initially thought eczema but the skin is not dry and feels normal. And there are no raised bumps. It has grown from a dime size to about the size of a half doll

Virtual consult: Would need to see a picture in order to make a more accurate assessment. Consider a HealthTap prime consult, concierge consult, or a visit with your pediatrician.

See dermatologist: You will need to be clinically examined. It could be fungal infection/dermatomycosis like ringworm or could be psoriasis or other skin problem. They can have the same symptoms-however different in clinical presentation. Steroids would help psoriasis but steroids will make ring worm worse. You need to be seen and evaluated by your doctor or dermatologist

Irritant: This appears to be an irritant reaction. Check on the products you have been using on your face or even oral products. Are you using teeth-whitening tooth paste? How about mouth-wash introduced prior to onset of the lip problem?

Contact dermatitis: Did you come in contact with poison ivy or other irritants. Do you have known skin reactions to chemical, metals, fibers, soaps, etc. Use topical steroids once- twice per day, for 1-2 weeks

Eczema: It's possible that you have eczema affecting your brows and corners of your eyelids. This condition can also affect other parts of your body, like behind your ears, elbows, behind your knees, etc. Avoid your eyelids, but you may trial hydrocortisone 2.5% cream to the brows 2-3 times per day to see if you respond well enough. The eyelids require prescription grade ophthalmic ointment.

Increasing dry skin on eyelids/hands, I work long night shifts and am concerned it might be a diet deficiency. Also have red raised patch behind knee?

Dermatologist: Is the best doc to see, especially because of the red raised patch behind knee. In general, lubricate from the inside w/olive oil, coconut oil, fish oil, vitamin e, etc. Avoid skin lotions that contain alcohol because it is drying. Peace and good health.
