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.

Local trauma: A hickey is a discolored area on the skin that results when small blood vessels break under the skin, causing a type of bruise (purpura). The appearance of the bruise will normally change in appearance and color over time. Small red dots (petechiae) may also appear. These types of injuries rarely scar, but may stay discolored for a fair amount of time. ...Read more

I have small hickey-looking rashes on my left leg. One on outside thigh and 2 on inner thigh. I've also had back ache and stomach pains(constipation)?

I have small hickey-looking rashes on my left leg. One on outside thigh and 2 on inner thigh. I've also had back ache and stomach pains(constipation)?

Pic worth 1000 words: A digital pic of the spots would be much easier to diagnose. They could be anything from insect bites to an allergic skin rash. Doubt that the stomach symptoms have much to do with spots on your leg. If they get larger, travel to the other side, become more plentiful in number, or start getting swollen etc. you will need to see a doctor. ...Read more

Hive?: Sounds like this is new for you. If the spots come and go within a 24 hour period, then almost certainly hives. Watch out for new foods or personal care products that may cause them, but most of the time a cause cannot be found. If you have no contraindications, you could try otc cetirizine that is longer acting than Benadryl and less sedating. If persistent, evaluation by an Allergist can help ...Read more

My son gets skin rashes that look like scratch marks. The scratch marks just appear and they are not from him scratching. What can it be?

Need to see it.: It is always difficult to try to diagnose a rash without being able to actually see it. I would advise you have your pediatrician look at this. Some possiblities are that he is actually scratching (usually at night) when you are not observing him. How old is he? Where are the marks? Are they actually abrasions or are the more like raised welts? Again, hard to try to diagnose without seeing it. ...Read more
