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.

Sudden itchy red raised bumps all over face. They disappear after a few hours or so. This occurs once in a blue moon but definitely not a 1 time thing?

Allergy: I sounds like you may be allergic to something in your environment. The fact that it occurs infrequently could mean it is something which is seasonal. See if there is a consistent time of the year or weather condition that is associated with the rash or any environmental condition. At the time you have the rash it should be examined and if necessary a biopsy should be done. ...Read more

On my 10th day of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). I developed an itchy red spot on my jawline last night. Today I have red itchy bumps across my face and neck. Worries?

On my 10th day of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate).  I developed an itchy red spot on my jawline last night.  Today I have red itchy bumps across my face and neck.  Worries?

Stop Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate): Skin rash is not an uncommon complication from amoxicillin (present in Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate)). This is related to a different immune response than the usual drug allergy response. You need to stop the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). The rash should go away in about a week. If the problem is truly bothersome, a short course of Prednisone may be considered. This does not necessarily mean that you are allergic to penicillin. ...Read more

Folliculitis is commonly caused by bacteria on the skin. Warm compresses may be applied to the rash but often it will resolve on its own. Avoid shaving the affected region until the rash clears. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps i first noticed on my face but now they have spread quickly all over and are mildly itchy not sure what to do?

Itchy red bumps: Rashes that are red, itchy, raised and spread can be hives (urticaria) although it is easier to view them directly. It can be helpful to take a photo (to document), not all the circumstances of onset of rash (diet, exercise, medications, stings/bites, fever, other symptoms, etc) to try to pinpoint trigger. Antihistamines like zyrtec (cetirizine) help with itching. See doc if continue or worsen... ...Read more

Hives: Sounds like mechanically (scratching) induced urticaria or hives and a phenomenon known as dermatographism. If this is new, often helpful to use a long-acting non-sedating antihistamine such as cetirizine.
