Can't be certain: If sex was well protected then the odd's are that this might be a viral infection. However, the only way to 100% rule out an STD is with evaluation.

Red spot on knee: You need to see a doctor asap as it seems like there is an infection in the skin. It could be deeper than it may seem and the white spots are most llikely from the spreading of the infection. Very rarely there could be abscess as well. See your doc asap.

Viral exanthem: This sounds like one if many viruses that can present with blisters or small sores on the surfaces of the inside of the mouth. The most important thing to do is stay calm and keep your child away from other children until the red and white spots go away. Treat fevers with Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Motrin, push clear liquids, and have your doctor take a look at this to get a better idea of what it is

Dry red spot appeared on skin by hip, rash covering my body followed. Red, circular, itchy, spots from neck to groin, front and back. Help!

Rash: Sounds like it could be pityriasis rosea a non dangerous self limiting rash in younger people. Google it and see if it matches. However, you should see a dermatologist to confirm this and to make sure you are not dealing with anything else. Hope this helps.

Hemangioma: Hemangiomas or "cherry tumors" are benign extra blood vessels that grow in the skin and on internal organs. In general these are left alone but if they grow too big then they can be surgically removed. They are not cancer.

Have it evaluated.: 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.

2 red spots on your: Body probably isn't chicken pox. A rash from chickenpox often occurs first on trunk (chest/back) ; then moves to face ; then extremities. The rash becomes blisters that itch. Blisters usually have all transformed into scabs in about a week. There are usually around 100 to 300 lesions (more on adults than small children). The rash could spread to mouth, eyelids ; genitalia.

My daughter was bit or stung by something in the middle of the night and woke with a red spot on her neck. This spot then turned into blisters.?

Sounds like a: Localized reaction to the bug bite, which is a normal reaction presenting as red spot-"inflammation".May or may not turn into blisters. You can go ahead and apply some topical steroid cream (skin needs to be intact) and give her some benadryl (diphenhydramine) orally. Consult with your Pediatrician if it is becoming infected, hot to touch, tender and changing in color.

Eczema or birthmark: This can be a type of eczema or mild inflammation of a birthmark typically called a "stork bite." moisturize the area with vaseline multiple times per day for 1 week. If that doesn't work, follow-up with your pediatrician.

I have a flat red spot on my neck. It has grown to nickel size over three weeks and is just now beginning to have minor stinging. What could it be?

Red spot on neck: There is no easy answer to this problem without seeing the spot. The minor stinging sensation would not be characteristic of early skin cancer. Insect bites can produce the signs and symptoms that you describe. Foreign bodies from thorns, etc could also give you the same reaction.

Could be viral: Your symptoms could be those of a viral infection. The redish area in your throat is classic, as are the myalgias in your neck and shoulder. However, if those symptoms last more than 7-10 days, then something else is going on and you should see your PCP.

On my 10th day of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). I developed an itchy red spot on my jawline last night. Today I have red itchy bumps across my face and neck. Worries?

On my 10th day of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). I developed an itchy red spot on my jawline last night. Today I have red itchy bumps across my face and neck. Worries?

Stop Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate): Skin rash is not an uncommon complication from amoxicillin (present in Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate)). This is related to a different immune response than the usual drug allergy response. You need to stop the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). The rash should go away in about a week. If the problem is truly bothersome, a short course of Prednisone may be considered. This does not necessarily mean that you are allergic to penicillin.

Do I have strep or pharyngitis? I have checked for redness and white spots on my throat, but it seems like a subtle redness. How obvious is strep?

It is not always: Obvious. The beefy red, enlarged tonsils with purulent exudates and swollen lymph nodes don't always occur. A strep throat test/ culture will allow you to know for sure.

Woke up with a pretty sore throat. Hurts some when I swallow. Checked it out, don't see any redness or any white spots. What could it be due to?

Woke up with a pretty sore throat. Hurts some when I swallow. Checked it out, don't see any redness or any white spots. What could it be due to?

Viral pharyngitis?: By far the most common cause of sore throat is viral pharyngitis and I see no reason to suspect anything else. If it gets especially severe or if you develop high fever, see a doctor. Otherwise just tough it out without worry.
