I have a bright red (and itchy!) rash on the back of both my legs, between my butt and knee. It looks like small bug bite like bumps. Not spreading.?

Many causes: Rashes are challenging even when the doctor can see them, so even harder in this forum. Small red bumps on both legs make me think of reactions to clothes, or something in contact with that area on both sides. Bites can do it. It could be heat rash, a reaction of the skin to warmth and occlusion from pressure. Some drug reactions can do that as can conditions like eczema and psoriasis. ...Read more

Can very dry skin cause red itchy bumps that look like bug bites? I'm getting sporadic red itchy bumps on face it's very dry and itchy!

Can very dry skin cause red itchy bumps that look like bug bites? I'm getting sporadic red itchy bumps on face it's very dry and itchy!

Yes: Skin that is very dry can develop irritation. The best treatment would probably be to use a cream that is both an exfoliant and emollient. I generally recommend either a lactic or a glycolic acid cream to help get rid of the dry, rough skin.

Itchy bumps appear often (mostly arm/leg/back), can be goosebump-like or can get as large as bug bites. Disappears in a few hours. Usually not red.

Hives / urticaria: Usually, itchy bumps are urticaria, or hives. They go away in a few hours and the skin looks normal. They are white in the bump area and usually it is pink around the outside. The bumps are called wheals and the areas around them are called flares. If you don't have ANY redness anywhere, it may be eczema or something else. Antihistamines like zyrtec, Allegra or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) help the itch. See a doc! ...Read more

I would highly: Recommend a visit to a podiatrist or dermatologist. There are a few different things this could be….you may need samples of the fluid or biopsy of the lesion to ultimately figure it out.
There is a blistery form of athletes foot that is possible, bug bite, autominnune reaction, herpes, and the list goes on. ...Read more

I have bed bug bites all over my entire body. Possibly infection. Itchy not painful. Some are red with dry blood. 100s of bumps and hives. Treatment?

I have bed bug bites all over my entire body. Possibly infection. Itchy not painful. Some are red with dry blood. 100s of bumps and hives. Treatment?

Antihistamines: Are a good "start" but the MAJOR effort here is the DISPOSAL of the affected sleeping materials or ERADICATION of the bugs (very frustrating often not effective methods) I would "vote" for DISPOSAL!
BTW if infected the bites need local ans well as possibly systemic (antibiotic) treatment!
Good Luck. Hope this helps!
