Hi, I have developed itchy red bumps nd rashes between my left side of stomach nd waist!

Rash: Itchy red bumps could be anything- contact dermatitis, eczema, insect bites. Make sure it is not vesicular in nature (because you will need to see your doctor) and to take photos. Take some antihistamine. Apply steroid cream for the itch. Beware of impetigo, this will need to be treated with antibiotics

Is it shingles?: Need a picture or a physical exam to begin to guess what it is. If you have a group of blisters located only on one side and it's both itchy and painful, shingles is one possibility. This is a reactivation of the chicken pox virus and it's not very common at your age, 33. It usually occurs when people are older, sick or stressed. Very important to see a doctor within the first 48 hours! Go asap!

You: You should visit your primary care provider or an allergist to have allergy skin or blood testing done. In the meantime try benadryl, (diphenhydramine) if that works then you can be more confident that it is allergy related. Also consider new lotions, detergents or soaps that you may be using. Best of luck.

Doctor can examine: Rashes are quite hard to describe and diagnose in words. A primary care or a dermatology will have to look at it in order to tell what it is. If dry skin or eczema rash, Hydrocortisone cream helps. Some rashes are an allergy to something. Hydrocortisone also helps allergic rashes. Ringworm fungus would need an antifungal. If it doesn't go away, a dermatologist can tell if it is something serious.

Stretch marks?: Aka striae= scarring on the skin with an off-color hue, caused by tearing of the skin, which over time may diminish, but will not disappear completely. Often associated with rapid growth/ weight changes. And may be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, hormone replacement therapy, cushing syndrome etc. I suggest consulting doc for eval. Good luck.

Many possibilities: If it's symmetrical it likely has an internal cause, such as eczema or a virus. If not symmetrical it more likely has an external cause, such as an allergy to something you have contacted. Try an otc Hydrocortisone cream, and if that does not help see your doctor or a dermatologist for a precise diagnosis and more specific treatment.

What could this pinkish / red blotchy hive rash covering my chest, stomach, neck, sides & back be?

Hard to tell: It is difficult enough to find a cause for a skin rash even by examination, it is nearly impossible to even make a guess without direct examination. See your doctor or a dermatologist.

Hives: If you have hives, the rash should be itchy and it should be dynamic (each spot tends to move or disappear before being replaced by another spot). First or second line antihistamines are a good first step if you suspect hives. If this is recurring or persisting for more than a week, consider a virtual consult to discuss potential causes and the necessary work up.

Shingles possibly: I would call your doctor ASAP for an evaluation. If this is shingles then starting you on an antiviral medication right away could make a big difference in speeding up your recovery.

See doctor: The pattern and location of the rash can be helpful. Itchy, burning, blistering rashes that are in a band like pattern may be "shingles" which is from the varicella -zoster virus which causes chicken pox. The reactivation can occur under times of stress. The rash will follow a "dermatome" which is the nerve root pattern.

What could be the cause of this rash on my stomach, sides, and breasts it's red, raised, and very itchy I just got over a virus could that cause it?

What could be the cause of this rash on my stomach, sides, and breasts it's red, raised, and very itchy I just got over a virus could that cause it?

Examination: Without seeing this it is impossible to know. If you were on antibiotics or other medications it may be a systemic allergic reaction. Could also be a contact dermatitis due to detergent in clothing, etc. The other possibility is that this is part of a tick-borne infection, although those are seldom itchy. Have this looked at by a professional. Good luck.

I woke up today with a sore throat. I then noticed a red blotchy rash on my left front stomach, and on the middle of my back. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Rule out strep throa: Could be viral but with an accompanying rash, need to rile out strep infection with a short trip to your doctor'd office by tomorrow or to an urgent care center if needed.
