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. ...Read more

Contact dermatitis?: Have you changed laundry detergents or fabric softeners recently? You are describing the itching in areas that are in close contact with your clothes so that would be my first thought. Weather changes, dry skin, harsh soaps can also cause dry itchy skin. If you notice any red bumps or areas of irritation, see your doctor to ensure not scabies or other bites... ...Read more

characterize cells: What you report is not definitive. Is this a plasma cell-rich inflammatory process, or is it a multifocal plasma cell tumor? The pathologists can investigate the cells to determine if they are of mixed clonal origin (benign) or monoclonal (meaning all derived form a single parent, usually a sign of a cancer). This can be done by evaluating the surface light chain expression. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
