My skin gets itchy, when I scratch it, it turns to red spots. Like rashes. I don't have food allergies. What could this be?

Angioedema!: Some people with stress release histamine in the skin. When scratching occurs, red welts occur. Try combining an over the counter drug like Claritin and zantac (ranitidine) (2x 75mg). I bet you get relief!

Hi I have these tiny white spots almost looks like a rash all over my penis head and some on shaft, it's not ppp, it looks like tysons glands.

Hi I have these tiny white spots almost looks like a rash all over my penis head and some on shaft, it's not ppp, it looks like tysons glands.

Not to worry...: Without the benefit of examining you, I would guess that you have a condition known as ppp, or pearly penile papules. This is a totally benign condition and requires no treatment. If you are concerned, see you doctor for a proper evaluation.

My 7yr old has white spots on her cheeks (& nowhere else). They seem to be under the skin, not scales/rash. Is it vitamin deficiency or something else?

Pityriasis alba: It sounds like you're describing pityriasis alba. Pityriasis alba is a condition that results from dry skin and is very common in children. It is a patchy lightening of the skin (not a starchy white depigmentation of the skin). It is not scaly and is usually asymptomatic. It tends to look worse in the summer as the affected skin does not tan. Most cases resolve in puberty when skin becomes oily.

Had sex-Balanitis on penis head, non painful white spots on tonsils won't go away, red spots look like molluscum base of penis. 3.5 weeks total. HIV?

Had sex-Balanitis on penis head, non painful white spots on tonsils won't go away, red spots look like molluscum base of penis. 3.5 weeks total. HIV?

Get examined: None of this suggests any STD, unless you have molluscum contagiosum. If you do, maybe from some other exposure; 3.5 weeks probably is too soon. The chance of HIV is low and your symptoms don't suggest it. But since you're worried, and have possible MC, you need to see a doctor or clinic for personal exam and STD/HIV testing. You'll never get final answers online or by self testing. Good luck.

I have red skin like rashes/spot like formations that form at night over my body and disappear overnight. What is it? And what could be the cause?

If it disappears: Completely overnight, you are probably reacting to something that you consume or come in contact with before you go to bed. You can try antihistamines such as Diphenhydramine otc. If it persists, consult a dermatologist.
