My 2 year old has a feverish, red, rash. kind of spotty blotchy. Started as 1 spot about an inch long oval shape on inner thigh. Now all over body

Viral?

Rash
Viral infection is often accompanied by a rash. If the problem goes away in a few days or is improving, then no worry. If it is getting worse or the child appears to be ill, then you need to bring the child to your doctor. (assuming that she is not having a drug reaction).

I was camping & got a red spot on my leg. It's painful, has swelling, itching redness and a lump under the skin. How can I know what it is?

Bug bite

Itching_all_over
You probably got bitten by a bug of some sort - impossible to tell what sort without seeing it in person. Could also be a small Staph infection, or a bite that has become infected. Apply warm soaks 2-3 times/day, but if it doesn't resolve in a few days see your doctor or a dermatologist.

I have trochanteric bursitis in my hip. I also have a very tender indented spot 6-8 inches down my leg. No injury/trauma or redness/swelling Concern?

Probably not

Hip
Bursitis can occasionally herald an inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis or spondyloarthritis. More commonly, however, it is due either to overuse such as running with poor form, or to obesity. Stretching, antiinflammatories like NSAIDs, and using proper technique when exercising are ways to lessen the bursitis pain. If it comes back, have your doctor check it out.

Dr. Raja Abusharr answered:

Face is red and blotchy after a warm shower, what can i do to help the redness go away? Take an antihistamine? No i dont have rosacea

Flushing of face

Rosacea
Common problem and related to (1) rapid dilation of superficial blood vessels called capillaries that increase in diameter and blood flow in response to heat. With dilation, the body cools down by running more blood through the surface of the skin and it transfers heat away from the body (2) release of chemicals in mast cells that an antihistamine could block if you take it regularly.
