Baby acne, contact: Without knowing more about the age of your baby and exactly how the rash looks, is difficult to say for sure. If baby under 3 months old, is likely it is "baby acne", a normal newborn condition where the changes in hormone levels in the newborn cause the glands to secrete and cause pimples. If more a rough/red sensitive rash, could be soaps or irritants baby's cheeks are coming into contact with.

Need to see rash: An online INBOX text consultation at Health Tap may be helpful. You can upload images of your rash as well as the history of your present problem. You need to be available during the day to reply to any questions your consultant may have. Several images of the involved area in sharp focus and including closeups would be helpful.

Measles: Is what this sort of sounds like, but no one could diagnose it without seeing you. Obviously you are sick with something. Please get an examination. Good luck!

Irritation: This irritation of skin and hair follicles is likely due to profuse sweating. The first step is prompt showering after a run. Also, check to see if any new laundry detergents or soaps are being used.

Facial rash: This could be folliculitis which is infected hair follicles. It could be cystic acne, pimples under the skin. Either of these would best be treated with prescriptions medicines. Try to get checked by a doctor to get the right diagnosis and treatment. Early treatment can help prevent scarring later on.

Acne Nodules: Acne cysts are soft, pus-filled and inflamed lesions that occur deep in the dermis. They are also referred to as acne nodules, and are notoriously difficult to treat with common acne medications such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Due to the fact that acne cysts occur deep inside the skin, they must be treated by a skincare professional in order to minimize scarring.

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Many possibilities: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Molluscum: This is likely molluscum contagiosum, a viral infection of the skin. Once the immune system starts attacking the virus, they may inflame, and appear to be infected, but this is actually a good sign, and they disappear in a few months after this occurs. It can be frustrating for parents, as I have seen mc last for a couple of years. There are many treatments available, though.

White bumps on face with soft fluid inside. Are these whiteheads?

White bumps on face with soft fluid inside. Are these whiteheads?

Probably: In all likelihood it probably is, particularly if there are no significant areas of redness or fever which if present would suggest you would be best served with a visit to your physician. Having said that in all likelihood this is a presentation of acne and would likely be well addressed with over-the-counter acne preparations containing benzoyl peroxide.

Eat healthy: Eat a diet with at least 80 grams of complete (animal or soy) protein every day and lots of fresh vegetables and fruits with some whole grains and perform regular exercise for good health. Don't worry about being too skinny if you have good energy and eat right. Try over-the counter acne medicines such as benzoyle peroxide or the Proactive products. If this isn't enough, see your doctor.

My illness started with a bad headache and a sore throat. After two days of taking Advil, my headache went away but my sore throat stayed and red, pimple-like bumps were forming all over my hands, feet, and face. Is there a way to cure this?

My illness started with a bad headache and a sore throat. After two days of taking Advil, my headache went away but my sore throat stayed and red, pimple-like bumps were forming all over my hands, feet, and face. Is there a way to cure this?

Doctor can check: A sore throat can be evaluated by a primary care doctor to see what the cause might be. Sometimes it is a strep throat bacterial infection (antibiotics would be needed to treat strep). Other possibilities include viral infections such as Hand-Foot-Mouth disease or Mononucleosis (mono), a tonsillar abcess, throat ulcers, etc... The doctor has to look at the throat and rash to figure things out.

Probably Acne "Cyst": Arleen, This is probably an acne cyst, which is a ruptured, painful bump where an oil gland ruptured below the skin. The body walls this off and makes a filled cavity called a cyst. Often this is serious and can scar, so you should see a dermatologist for help. Possibly, an injection of the cyst with a dilute cortisone would help.

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Cyst: Assuming the bump is painful, it is likely a cyst which is a fluid filled bump below the skin. It could also be an early abcess, which is an infected collection of pus below the skin, like a pimple but more painful and larger. Either can be a consequence of shaving in the genital region. Don't squeeze or pop it! I recommend seeing your doctor asap to see if it needs to be drained.
