I've never had a problem with acne. About 3 months ago I got what seemed like a rash all over my back and it hasn't gone away. It doesn't itch.

Acne on back?: If you have an acne rash on you back for the first time, it could be cased but Omer sweating during exercise without showering right away. If this rash is not like acne and does not itch, it could be Pityriasis Rosea. Especially if it started with a similar lesion a few weeks earlier that was much larger. If this lesions are oval to round, slightly raised with a fine silver scale.

I had sepsis a while back and took some hardcore medication. Endied up getting a rash all over my back. Why did that happen?

I had sepsis a while back and took some hardcore medication. Endied up getting a rash all over my back. Why did that happen?

Delayed reaction?: Well it all depends on the medications you were given, sometimes sepsis is treated with more than one antibiotic and if your blood pressure dropped they may have used other medications too to stabilize you. The rash can also be secondary to low platelets from the sepsis. The key is to find the culprit. Make a list of all meds taken and see an allergist to help you with the answer.

I suffer with mild wear and tear in lower back but lately as the pain has got worse I e started to get a rash all over my back, arms. And chest.?

You have 2 issues: I don't think the 2 issues are related. The back issues is super common and just requires heat, massage, stretching, a chiro, acupuncture and pt. See my other pain answers. The rash will have to be seen my your doc to id. A rash requires the "eyeball" test. One has to see it to make any assumptions as to what it might be.

Fever and rash: You could be experiencing a feature of a viral illness or a drug rash. More history and an exam would be required to be sure.

W/ hand foot mouth, pediatricians, is it normal for my 2 yr old to develop a rash all over the back of his legs and butt? Small red dots. Treatment?

W/ hand foot mouth, pediatricians, is it normal for my 2 yr old to develop a rash all over the back of his legs and butt? Small red dots. Treatment?

Yes: The area around the bottom and upper legs is a common additional site of hfm, it just didn't make it to the label when the pattern was being named. If that's the only site and there are no blisters it could be something else. Te variability of hfm is quite diverse, with some having only one area involved.

Rash: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.

Rash: Without an picture it is difficlt to give you a definitive diagnosis. It could be an allergic reaction or possibly a heat ransh. Try giving benadryl (diphenhydramine). If rash persists see your doctor.

Several things: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

I have an itchy rash all over my torso neck back and now has spread to my legs?

I have an itchy rash all over my torso neck back and now has spread to my legs?

Need a picture: Rashes are tough to diagnose with just limited description. Often even with pictures and biopsies rashes can go undiagnosed. It is important to see the rash and get a thorough history including new contacts, foods and medications taken as well as pattern of spread to get an accurate diagnosis. I would get seen if this rash is spreading and causing discomfort.

Rash: This sound like pityriasis rosae. Starts with 1 big patch then spreads allover. It is caused by a virus & is a self limited condition that will resolve spontaneously over tIme. It is best if you show it to your Dr to make sure. Your health comes 1st. Good luck.

I have rashes all over my legs and back after a day at the pool and a bath?

Summer's rash: Rash after swimming in a pool can be due to a reaction to chlorine in the pool or from bacteria if there is not enough chlorine in the pool water. Bathe carefully to remove chlorine from your skin and hair and take antihistamines like benadryl (causes drowsiness) or claritin. If you're not sure whether too much or too little chlorine was the problem, get help from your physician or a dermatologist
