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

Difficult: If you are not on any photo(light)sensitizing medications, then best answer is sunscreen. Now that they are present, will be a couple of days for them to reabsorb. ...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
