Follow up suggested: From your description he may have impetigo which requires a longer course of antibiotics or a different antibiotic. An allergic rash can be itchy and is treated with an anti histamine, or he may have both infection and allergic reactions.

6yr old girl rash - one spot 2 weeks ago. Spread small raised red bumps on trunk. First spot is flat in the middle. Now fever, congestion, sore throat?

6yr old girl rash - one spot 2 weeks ago. Spread small raised red bumps on trunk. First spot is flat in the middle. Now fever, congestion, sore throat?

Rash: Rashes are very difficult to diagnose without some visuals, at least in pictures if not in person. It sounds to me like pityriasis rosea with a herald spot from your description and that the cold symptoms are unrelated. See your pediatrician. Alternatively, you can try Healthtap Prime and upload some photos. ...Read more

My toddler has red bumps on her legs. She also has a few on her trunk and arms. These red bumps are spread out and are not bothering her. Poison ivy?

My toddler has red bumps on her legs. She also has a few on her trunk and arms. These red bumps are spread out and are not bothering her. Poison ivy?

Patches or streaks?: Poison ivy tends to start as small blisters in patches or long streaks where the ivy plant comes in contact or a kids contaminated hand or fingers spread the antigen. The thick skin of the palm or finger pads tend not to break out but ivy juice under fingernails spread where a kid scratches. If you see individual bumps scattered around it is likely something else. ...Read more

2 days ago I noticed a cluster of raised itchy red bumps on my waistline. Now abt 25 on legs & trunk. Start pale red, grow darker. No bedbugs in house?

Likely chiggers: Chiggers (red bugs) are common in the late spring & generally present in tall grass or weeds. Once on the body they crawl around looking for a blood meal & cause a painless bite. If they hit a barrier like a belt line they often bite along that line. Within a day the body reacts with itching & the red small flat wound sites. Treatment focuses on reducing the itching.Scratching can lead to infection. ...Read more

2 year old with red bumps on torso is vomiting. What could this be?

Virus or trouble: A number of viruses can cause vomiting and diarrhea, and some of these also cause a bumpy red rash. However, bumps can come from other causes--like having an allergic reaction to a food or other substance, which can also be associated with vomiting. Regardless, vomiting that worsens, doesn't stop, or becomes green is a cause for concern. Consider contacting your doctor soon if not better yet. ...Read more

I have red bumps on my torso and some on my back. These bumps vary in size and are not itchy. The bumps don't bother me, should I see a doctor?

A choice of outlook: Generally, anything bothering you and unable to solve alone, albeit cosmetic, confidence, image, mood etc... you're not really being the best you that you can be. By all means see your doctor as part of seeking a solution and healthy skin. This may be acne, dry skin, atopic dermatitis, eczema and others. But if the one concern is could this be serious? A doctor visit is not needed at this time. ...Read more

I have had small clusters of red bumps forming on my wrists, inside arms, torso, and groin. They are not itchy. I also have Crohn's disease?
