Probably viral rash: Rashes caused by allergies itch — so this one is not an allergy. Press on a spot for a second. The rash should fade away momentarily & then reappear. If it doesn't you have bruising in the skin — petechiae (see photo) — promptly see a doctor for that. If it does fade & you otherwise feel well give the rash a week or two. If it still doesn't fade away see your doctor then. ...Read more

Hives/Urticaria: Sounds like hives. Most common cause is infection (often very minor in nature) resulting in activation of innate immune/autoimmune pathways in skin that trigger mast cells. Usually, hives resolve and we never know the cause. For other causes: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/137362-overview#aw2aab6b2b3aa. A virtual consult to discuss triggers can help. If no contraindications, try otc Zyrtec (cetirizine) ...Read more

Hey? Am having a rash all over my stomache and it's itchy. Little red bumps can it be herpes? Only my stomach

Unlikely: Herpes usually affects a small patch of skin, not a large area (like your entire abdomen). There is usually a raised reddish area with a cluster of tiny fluid-filled blisters. They may itch, but usually there is tenderness over the skin even before the bumps appear and there is more pain or irritation than itching. The bumps open up and become tiny scabs as they heal. See a derm if it persists. ...Read more
