What is the best way to get rid of pimple scars, pimples, and these little pimple rashes I get by where there's a zit by my nose? Help please!
Variety of causes: The "zits" description leaves a lot to the imagination. This could be bites (flea, ant), yeast (candida albicans), hives (allergic) or a mild skin infection from skin germs, or bites originally that became infected later. If these do not fade over a few days and or continue to enlarge or incrase in number, an office evaluation is worth while. ...Read more

I have littles zits in my penis is that normal? And some microscopical bumps in my penis head, ni rash or something else!
What? Extremely itchy rash on thighs, stomach, wrists -perfectly round papules (clear fluid), early menses with dark brown flow, and huge purple zit.
It is important to: Seperate these phenomen. The period is not related to rash onset. The papules could be a few things but if itching like crazy, at night, u may have a skin mite, bed bugs or something requiring permetharin cream. The zit is likely coincidental and, if your periods are bad then itching all over and having a zit will put u into disaster mode.

Have a rash that looks like tiny pimples (they're spreadout) all over body only itches at first, turns into sores. Hubby and child have too. Seen 2 different doctors and 2 different diagnosis. Help!!!
It would help...: ...to know what diagnoses the other docs gave you. Some conditions just have to "run their course." For example, chicken pox can start as tiny blister-like bumps which then become ulcers or sores. With proper cleansing and voiding scratching or rubbing, most of them heal w/out scars. Herpes can act the same way but, except in infants, usually are localized to 1 area. Need more info! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My two month old has a rash that looks like very small pimples and is very red and in some places its blochy and red. Is this normal if what's going on?
Patience: The baby acne is a common event that reflects hormones transferred during the pregnancy. While the baby is floating in moisture, the skin is will not respond, but within weeks of birth they break out for many weeks before the hormone levels begin to drop ; the acne disappears. Keeping the skin clean ; avoiding irritating soaps helps. Occasional use of a 1/2% hc once daily can calm some lesions. ...Read more
