Bacterial infections, however, (ie: strep), will require antibiotics in order to resolve. I recommend you consult with your doctor in order to make the correct diagnosis and initiate appropriate treatment. ...Read more

My daughter started to itch back of neck no lice but the red spots aare now as far down as shoulders. What could this be?

Umm, hard to say.: Skin rashes are most difficult to diagnose without actually examining them. Can you feel the rash? Is it crusted? How old is your dtr? Since the rash is itching & now spreading, perhaps it would be wise to have your pediatrician or dermatologist examine this in person. Then specific treatment and preventive measures could be discussed with more accuracy. Just proper itch relief can be a blessing! ...Read more

I have red spots on my body at night. They it's terribly and appear on my breasts neck&arms. Help?

No fun!: Skin problems can be a real challenge without actually seeing the rash. In general, rashes are diagnosed based on their size, shape, color and distribution. The age of the patient and their medical history are also very important. In your case, I would be curious to know if you have recently switched to a different laundry soap for your bedding. On the safe side, i'd get it looked at by your doc. ...Read more

Hard to say: The face rash is hard to say anything about without seeing it, but the lumps on the neck are probably glands. I would see your physician so he can diagnose and probably easily treat the face rash. I think the bumps on the neck are because of the rash but it needs to be seen. ...Read more

Been taking apo-sulfatrim for four days, developed a rash on neck and weird red spots on roof of mouth, tingling all over body. What should I do?

Discontinue: Stop taking the medicine. It sounds like you may have an allergy to the medicine. If you continue taking the medicine, there is a chance that you can go into anaphylactic shock. If it is bad enough, death will soon follow. I'd call your doc and let him/her know. You may have allergy to sulfa drugs. ...Read more
