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

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

Whenever i get hot i get red patches on my back, chest, and stomach that's itchy and burns and it keeps getting worse. What could this be?

Hard to say: Without seeing it. Could be hives or other rash. Could be an allergic reaction or a rash that just comes for a reason no one knows. Try zyrtec, store brand is fine, once a day, saran lotion for itching as much as you want, and stay away from hot showers . Try to figure out triggers so you can avoid the rash if possible. You will probably need the help of a doc. ...Read more

I have this small red non itchy bumps on my stomach and three on my back. It started on my chest and progressed. What is it?

Dermatitis?: Small red bumps could be dermatitis (skin irritation allergy) or infectious lesions (like viral zoster). The presentation is so widely variable that the only way to properly diagnose you is to see your physician. Your physician will want to know how long these 'bumps' have been present, if you changed soap or detergent recently, what improves it, and seen these bumps before? See your physician. ...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?

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
