Hives: It sounds as if you are having a dermatologic condition called urticaria. Urticaria is the medical terminology for hives. It is the bodies response to a certain stimulus, such as an allergy. The body will release histamine in response to a stimulus and histamine causes redness, swelling and itching. Other triggers of urticaria can be cold/heat, stress, medicines, or with you, pressure on skin! ...Read more

My wife's back "upper part" is almost full of itchy bumps, she just got them suddenly, also a big spot on her chest and some red bumps on her face.
Hives: Thisis an allergic reaction most likely. As long as she has no breathing problems or loss of blood pressure these are hives. You can try bendryl but you will need to see your doctor. Look for exposures like a new medication, a food, now fabrices, new chemical exposures, infection = the list is very long and often we can not discover the cause. We call this urticaria. ...Read more
Have a tiny red spot on skin under right chest (upper rib). Not raised or itchy. Looks like cut but isn't.I have 2 others on left pectoral(also tiny)?
Not to worry: This sounds like what are called cherry hemangiomas. These are little gifts that you get from one or both of your parents. They are simply made up of hundreds of small blood vessels. These growths never turn bad. You will continue to get more as you get older. They are very easily treated with a laser without leaving any marks. ...Read more

Infection?: You may have an infection of some type, possibly fungal or bacterial but what you're describing sounds like a tinea corporis type of ring especially if it's red all around and there may be a small area in the center which is clear and it's itchy. An exam would definitely tell the doctor what it is and how to fix it. If you'd like to chat more about it write me: www.healthtap.com/dr-drsaghafi ...Read more

Small spots on upper chest, red in colour. Not itchy. Is this a symptom ov HIV, even tho had a rapid finger prick test at 27 week and result was Neg?
Doubtful but: Skin rash can be caused by many things including viral infections other than HIV. You did not mention whether you have had unprotected sex during the past 40 weeks and thus a negative test at 27 weeks cannot tell you whether you have contracted HIV or not. Nonetheless if it is from another viral infection or a drug reaction, the rash should resolve in ...Read more

I have what feels like a cold no sorethroat nor fever a day ago a itchy localized rash on my chest came thats slightly risen red spots. What is this?
Doctor can evaluate: Rashes can be hard to figure out without looking at them. Cold symptoms can be seen with colds, strep throat, flu, allergies, etc... A rash can happen sometimes if a person's body is reacting to the germ causing the cold symptoms (sort of like an allergic reaction). Strep throat bacteria can make a toxin that causes reddish rashes. Over-the-counter antihistamines may decrease rashes and itching. ...Read more

I have red itchy spots randomly all over my legs, stomach & chest. They itch horribly. I do have Lyme disease could it be related or other causes?!
Not sure of the:
context. Lyme disease is an infection. It can have a rash and would need treatment. Mostly people mean "I think I might have had lyme disease sometime in the past". And the organism would certainly be entirely gone with treatment. While one can have an injury from it, it is less likely to have rash from treated lyme than treated gunshot wound.

I have a rash which started on my wrists. It's now spread to my chest, back legs, arms and scalp. It's red like spots which can be itchy.
Need pic:): Best to see a picture...you can use HealthTap to send one if you wish.
