Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash. Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash. However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

Perioral dermatitis: What you describe sounds like perioral dermatitis, a relative of rosacea. Foods generally don't make it worse but cortisone creams and heavy moisturizers do. We use anti inflammatory medications such as topical creams such as metronidazole, sulfur/sulfacetamide and oral antibiotics to reduce the inflammation. It may take several months to get the rash under control. ...Read more

Possibly rosacea: Does the area get hot and red and flushed sometimes? If so, it could be rosacea. Other possibilities include an allergic response or a fungal or yeast infection. A dermatologist can tell you which it is, and prescribe treatment for it. ...Read more

I have a rash on one armpit, its little red bumps with heads and there is one bump that is very swollen even under the skin. It is painful and itchy?

I have a rash on one armpit, its little red bumps with heads and there is one bump that is very swollen even under the skin. It is painful and itchy?

This Is The Pits...: You may have the beginnings of an infection in that area. If it gets too advanced it could become a real problem that's hard to get rid of and at that point it would be called :hidradenitis suppuritiva" which means a recalcitrant infection of the armpit(s). Best to get it looked at and treated right away. It's not likely to go away on its own and that big lump is a sign of that. ...Read more
