I have red spots on the top of my thigh just under my hip they have been here for nearly a month now?

Best to see doctor: Skin rashes are best diagnosed when they can be seen. Also, it would be helpful to know if the rash is itchy or painful, changed over time or stayed the same etc. It is unlikely to be dangerous, but for a diagnosis please see your doctor.

10 year old daughter complains of severe aches and pains in her knees ankles shoulders hips and back seeing big red spots, & asthma?

Unlikely related: The joint pains and asthma are probably not related. The spots may be a rash due to an allergy--and asthma can be triggered by an allergy--these may be related. See a pediatrician.

I get red spots on my legs (back of calfs, just above inside of knees, just below hip) what are they and how do I get rid of them?

I get red spots on my legs (back of calfs, just above inside of knees, just below hip) what are they and how do I get rid of them?

Multiple possibiliti: Spots or rashes really need to be seen to know what they are. Location alone does not help to diagnose. Important to know whether they're scaly, itchy, painful, irritated, or whether they come and go on their own, also with anything has helped or made ir worse. Spots can even be moles, warts or other growths that may need to be biopsied. Send a clear picture of them, it could help.

See a dermatologist: This is not related to any food. Eat a normal diet. You need an exam, diagnosis, and probably a prescription cream.

Possibilities: There is a possibility that it can be a sexualy transmitted disease but another possibility is pearly papules (photos can be seen using search engine - i.e. google images). These are benign not contagious and common so possibly nothing to worry about. If there is any question as to the cause see your MD.

Leave them alone.: Your description suggests that irritation from frequent pulling the area is the cause. If you stop touching the area, it will likely recover by itself in a week or two. But if problem persists, you should consult your doctor.

A: A rash with raised red bumps is called a maculopapular rash and can be caused by many, many things such as: -food or drug allergy -viral infections such as fifths disease, roseola, ebv, CMV just to name a few -insect bites such as fleas or scabies -bacterial infection such as scarlet fever (caused by strep) -medication reaction or it can be seen in very rare things such as: -measles -toxic shock syndrome -kawasaki disease -meningitis -stevens-johnson syndrome -rocky mountain spotted fever disease the list goes on and on. The best thing to do is to call your child's doctor. They may want to take a look to see what it may be. Odds are that if your child does not have a high fever or is not acting sick, then it's probably nothing serious.

Exam needed: Its recommended that you be examined by a physician urgently in order to determine whether the findings are due to allergic reaction, primary irritation/inflammation from abrasive trauma or whether there is a superimposed bacterial infection (cellulitis) which needs urgent treatment.

Red spots and redness on top of glans of my penis. Uncircumcised and never had intercourse. No pain, itching swelling. Just red and scares me a little?

Here are some...: Glad, you ask. Clinically, do nothing with these as long as being free of symptoms, but keep gentle regular cleansing without any excessive or obsessive care such as using topical cream; so again, leave them alone. More worry? Seek evaluation & counseling timely.

3.5 wks post loa & debridement RT knee. Now 8-10 red spots scattered on old ACL incision/under knee area & addition 2 regular redness&swelling. Ideas?

Spots on ACL scar: I would contact your surgeon and have him evaluate your incision. It may very well be "normal" healing but he should evaluate for any possible occult infection that may require antibiotics and/or further work up.

Treat bursitis: Treatment for bursitis is very successful. A simple injection often does wonders. See your orthopedist and mention the dent as well.

Unknown to us too.: Where are these spots? How long have they been there? Do they hurt? Are they raised? Are they itchy? Are they fixed or do they come and go? Any other symptoms? We need more information to really know what's going on with this.
