My wife has a rash and it goes away an comes back little red bumps on belly legs some on he back ect took her to ER and doc thought it was follicits?

Not folliculitis: I doubt if it is folliculitis and spontaneously resolves. If they are itchy and last only a short time especially after exercise, sweating or hot showers may be a form of hives called cholinergic urticaria. Need to see a physician who takes a more complete history. ...Read more

My baby has born 10 days back and now she is suffering from rashes on all over her body. Please suggest something?

Diagnosis?: An all over body rash in a newborn certainly may be benign rash that is self limited, requiring no treatment. It may also be a sign of something more serious. How is she feeding? Is she sleeping her usual? Does she wake to feed? Does she have some times she is alert and awake. What was your group b strep status? Did you have a fever when she was born? We may be able to help in a prime visit. ...Read more

Possible dry skin: For the next two weeks I would try using no soap at all on your back and if possible shower every other day. Put a moisturizing cream on your back before you go to bed and the lotion in the morning. If that doesn't work you should see your internist or a dermatologist. ...Read more

Hard to say: If localized only to the back we think of factors that would put it there, like laying down on a wool mat or wearing a shirt with a colored decal in that location.

Sounds like eczema.: Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is in the same family of conditions as allergies and asthma. It can't be cured but usually can be controlled. It's best managed by using a sensitive skin cleanser, avoiding bathing in very hot water, and using a sensitive skin lotion at least 3 times daily, even when the rash isn't there. If doing this doesn't help enough, she should see her doctor. ...Read more

I get rashes on my neck and chin. They are not bright red though it kind of is a dark pigment color and they go away sometimes and then come back.?

Rash comes and goes: Hello Anna, you have opened a real can of worms because a rash could be almost anything. It also helps to tell if it comes after exposure to something, does it itch and what makes it go away. But without knowing much detail I can say it could be allergic, acne, solar dermatis or related to hormones. I would see a dermatologist and have a little more detail for a better answer. Good luck :) ...Read more

Hand, foot and mouth: This viral illness may be transmitted for several days after symptoms resolve. Wait a few days after symptoms to go back to school in fairness to the other students.
