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!

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.

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.

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.

Rashes: There are many causes of rashes--from dry skin to infections. Topical cortisones can help the mild itch, but to identify cause, may need to be seen. This is one of those "picture worth a thousand words" kind of problem.

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

Eczema or ringworm?: Dry and itchy spot is probably eczema. You could try 1% Hydrocortisone cream otc for a week. If that does not help then an topical antifungal for 2 weeks could help with ring worm. If neither don't work then a trip to your doctor id warrented.

No way to know?: Rashes are difficult at best when seen by the doctor. One would need more information and a look to know how to give you a diagnosis. Contagious? Infection? Fungal? Parasitic (scabies and such)? Contact dermatitis (poison ivy/oak)? Systemic disease with rash (lupus and other)? Syphilis? Eczema? Allergic reaction? The story goes on and on. I am so sorry I cannot help you! Get seen.

Red spots over chest (came up yesterday, could it be where I shaved my chest) not itchy. They don't have heads.?

Shaving: It is possible that the red spots are from the shaving. When you shave an area it sometimes irritates the hair follicles and they can appear as red areas. This is especially likely to happen in an area that is not shaved regularly.

I have red spots that are a little bit itchy on my chest and stomach?

Need more info.: Are these red spots raised or flat? Large or small? Singular or confluent? New or old? Recurrent, or is this the first time? Have you traveled recently? Unfortunately, it would be difficult to hazard a guess without more information. A consultation with a photograph of the spots would be an excellent idea

Pityriasis rosea?: This is just a good guess. Could be other things. But if it's pr it will resolve on its own. However it could be other entities I would hate to scare you with here. Suggest a derm eval.

Hives: Hives can cause red itchy spots. Treatment consists of antihistamines and avoidance of the cause which could be from a variety of problems including infection, allergy, hormonal issues, autoimmune problems, etc. I recommend seeing an allergist.

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?

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

I have what feels like a cold no sorethroat nor fever a day ago a itchy localized rash on my chest came that's slightly risen red spots. What is this?

I have what feels like a cold no sorethroat nor fever a day ago a itchy localized rash on my chest came that's 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.
