They tend to be found at skin folds (breast or groin) & folds of joints (ankle, knee, elbow, axilla) as well as the legs. A rash may develop and swelling can occur as well as secondary infection from scratching. A skin biopsy is sometimes needed to make an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

What are these red bumps on my chest? It started from the chest and now I have them on my back and arms. It is also a bit itchy.

If the rash is worse, see doc. ...Read more

I have what looks like a heat rash covering belly chest and back, is this heat rash or could it be something else? All the red bumps are raised

The excess accumulation of dead cells blocks the sweat glands and cause sweat to accumulate under the skin. This causes small papules (bumps) and vesicles (tiny blisters) to

I'm worried I have hiv. Right now I have 2 small mouth ulcers and small red bumps on my back and chest that don't itch. Also I have a headache. Its been 2 weeks since I had unprotected oral sex. I am a paranoid person so how worried should I be?
Not at all: You should not worry before you have a test to determine if you have HIV or another sexually transmitted disease. Simply make an appointment with your doctor, discuss your sexual activity and ask for testing for STDs as well as for advice regarding safe sex. Do not be shy about doing this, we are all prepared to have these discussions and to address these concerns. You are part of a generation that seems to have a higher rate of anxiety about many things, health especially. It is not clear why this generation has such a high rate of anxiety or, as you call it, paranoia, but rest assured you are not alone. ...Read more
