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.

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 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. ...Read more

Try to figure out triggers so you can avoid the rash if possible. You will probably need the help of a doc. ...Read more
