I have little red bumps on my back and my chest. They kind of look like flea bites but I'm not quite sure what they are. Can somebody please help me?
Agree w Dr Raff.: Flea bites may be clustered into 3 itchy bumps that bleed & blanch (turn white) when you press on them. They tend to be found at skin folds (breast or groin) & folds of joints (ankle, knee, elbow, axilla) as well as the legs. A rash may develop and swelling can occur as well as secondary infection from scratching. A skin biopsy is sometimes needed to make an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

Hard to say?: We need to get more of a detailed history and physical exam to know this. Are the bumps itchy? Does chest and face flare at the same time? Is this a recurring event?

There are small red bumps on my chest and I try to get rid on it for the past 3 days, do I need to go to a hospita?
Not an emergency: Doesn't sound like an emergency to me. Cool compresses might help.

A doctor's visit should do the trick. It will save you lots of time and money over going to the emergency room ...Read more
