See a doctor: Find out what the rash is before applying creams. Consult a dermatologist.
Hello doctor, I have small red spots over my torso and some on my arm that look like a rash. I'm not sure what it is? Recently had a viral.
See derm: This may be from the viral infection but see a dermatologist to make sure.See 1 more doctor answer
2 red spots, 1 on each fore arm, not itchy, painless, clears when the skin is pulled/stretched, not pimple like, dry, flat, slightly raised, HIV rash?
Red Spots: Heat, fungus, parasites, bacteria and virus can cause red blotches to appear on your arm. Rosacea, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, eczema and shingles can cause large red patches of skin to appear and become itchy and uncomfortable, hives, cellulitis and insect bites can create red splotches of skin that become irritated. See your doctor for a diagnosis.
Noticed a few red spots on my elbow last night. They don't itch but other wise look like bug bites. Are there any skin conditions that ca do this?
Insect bites: Most likely an insect bite; being localized on an elbow, we should not worry about anything!
My 3 year old has cluster of red spots like pimples on her elbow, its there for 2 weeks now and its spreading, what it could b?
Red spots with a white centre on my hands, elbows, feet and knees, they are very itchy, what could this be?
Dermatitis: Dermatitis, or inflammation in the skin can cause this pattern. Eczema (atopic dermatitis) can do this, and the rash associated with gluten allergy (celiac sprue) called dermatitis herpetiformis can also do this. Hives can present similarly as well. Erythema multiforme is rare, but can appear this way and eventually makes little "target" lesions. A dermatologist should be able to diagnose you.See 1 more doctor answer
Why is it for the last 3 days I have small red spots that itch and sting like ants, particularly on the hands, elbows, legs, and feet?
Many possibilities: What you describe, painful and itching red spots on your extremities, could be related to an allergic reaction, to something you have come in contact with or eaten, or could be due to a viral infection. It is hard to be more specific, but I see you are trying an antihistamine and topical steroid cream. See your doctor soon if these treatments are not working.

Been experiencing small red rashes and/or lumps on the inside of my left elbow only, vary in size. Usually not itchy, but always in the same spot.?
Need more info: Dermatology is pretty visual, so it's hard to know what is going on without seeing it. Eczema, psoriasis, and urticaria (hives) can develop around the elbows, though eczema and hives tend to be itchy. Sometimes an irritant or mild allergic contact dermatitis can present in the same place as well. I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist to help solve this one.
I have an itchy rash that appears only on my elbows. It appears as red dots or sometimes pus filled spots. I notice outbreaks mainly in the summer.
Poison ivy: Could this be a reaction to poison ivy, oak or sumac?
Hi I have a rash on both my inside arms from just above my elbow to just before my armpit it's achy, hot, the skin is red and so are the spots x?
Itchy rash: This can result from a multitude of things and needs to be examined to determine its cause, you need to see your doctor first and if necessary they can refer you to a dermatologist.
Itchy red rash looks like petichiae (pink red pin spots) raises up when itched. Crook of elbow-bicep-stomach. Platelets are 160-230. Do petich. Itch?
See your doctor: Make an appointment with your doctor for an evaluation.
My skin gets itchy, when I scratch it, it turns to red spots. Like rashes. I don't have food allergies. What could this be?
I drank alcohol, the next day I woke up I got red spots or rashes in my back, chest and arms. Is it allergy?
Maybe. Maybe not: Write down everything you ate or drank that night....If the same thing happens again, bring all the info from both times to an allergist.See 1 more doctor answer
