Can eczema take form of itchy bumps and blisters instead of just dry red patches? Should I be concerned if anything life threatening?

Can eczema take form of itchy bumps and blisters instead of just dry red patches? Should I be concerned if anything life threatening?

Not life threatening: Just "quality of life" threatening. Yes eczema can take the form of blisters and itchy blister depending on which kind. Atopic dermatitis doesn't usually do this but a contact dermatitis such as poison ivy/oak will. You could also have a infection on top of your dry skin eczema and the blisters could even be herpes but this usually becomes painful.

Rash: Difficult to say without seeing them but the fact they are so itchy makes me think of hives or bites. Send a picture if you can. Keep them clean and use an antihistamine. All the best.

See a doctor: It seems like you may have dermatitis like from sensitivity to something you came in contact. Did change soap shampoo or lotion. See your doctor to evaluate the rash on your scrotum and his penis.

Might be: It might be a poison oak, however poison oak tend to be on areas of the body that were unclothed and in contact with plants, but it might be a contact dermatitis or other allergic reaction, you need to show it to doctor, no one can diagnose rash without seeing it, and you most likely will need treatment that you can't get without seeing a doctor.

Chicken pox?: Have you ever had chicken pox or been immunized against it? If not it sounds suspicious. Of course, without seeing a picture or the rash itself any diagnosis is speculative. In any case consult with your physician.

I woke up with huge red VERY itchy bumps on my feet. They are also hard, painful, blistered, clear liquid coming out and turned purple. Bug bites?

I woke up with huge red VERY itchy bumps on my feet. They are also hard, painful, blistered, clear liquid coming out and turned purple. Bug bites?

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.

Every so often my hands break out in itchy bumps that turn into blisters and leak. What could this be?

Contact dermatitis: Could explain the rash in your hands. Most common source are strong kitchen soaps. Use kitchen gloves in the sink. Please contact a dermatologist if avoidance of this soap does not eliminate the rash.

I have small itchy bumps on my arm and one is blistering. What can this be?

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are very difficult to describe in words, so an exam by a primary care doctor and/or a dermatologist is helpful, when the rash is present. Sometimes rashes occur from bug bites, fungus/yeast, reactions with chemicals, irritants, plants, allergens, etc... Itching makes it more likely an allergic rash or bug bites. If one cannot go to the doctor, a video consult on HealthTap PRIME may help.

I had a few itchy bumps around my feet and now after scratching they developed into blisters. What do you recommend?

I had a few itchy bumps around my feet and now after scratching they developed into blisters. What do you recommend?

Athletes foot: Certain types of athletes foot (fungal infections) can cause small blisters (vesicles) to form. Scratching them causes the fluid to be released and the infection spreads. Try an over the counter anti fungal cream as well as some hydrocortisone to control the itching. If they don't improve after a week seek professional care.

I have tiny itchy bumps on the bottom of my foot. They are all around what used to be a blister and is now a hole in my foot with weird looking skin?

I have tiny itchy bumps on the bottom of my foot. They are all around what used to be a blister and is now a hole in my foot with weird looking skin?

I'm not sure what: Exactly you mean by a whole in the foot...are we speaking of a bonafide ulcer? If so you should see a foot doctor or dermatologist....if its just one of the blisters erupting it sounds more along the lines of a bullous Tinea pedis or athletes foot and a topical antifungal would be a good starting point.

? eczema: If it is a chronic skin condition on your hands with itchy, red dry areas then I would think eczema is a strong possibility. See my web site www. Kleinallergy.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved I would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor.
