My bf & I both have a rash on the right side of our necks and right inner elbows. The rashes are red, raised, and itchy. Any ideas what it is?

Allergic reaction?: If two normal healthy people start to get similar rashes on just the neck and part of one arm, and the bumps are itchy, red, and raised, it is likely that they have some allergic reaction. Reactions may be to poison oak, poison ivy, cosmetics, sunscreens, foods they shared, animals they petted, etc... It could also be "bugs" that bit them both, such as mosquitos or other insects. ...Read more

I am experiencing skin rash (quality: itchiness, blisters, flaking or scaling). : Skin redness or irritation. Not contagious.  Rash 3 weeks Original rash looks like it's healing but skin around it is red and raised with tiny clear fluid blisters?

Sound like a burn: Your symptoms are suggestive of a burn, or sunburn, as in a 1st degree burn, where you have redness and blisters but no true deep skin damage. It is typical for a rash to clear and have blisters left over; they are tiny areas of inflammation fluid left over from the active rash process. It sounds like it is resolving. If it persists are recurs, you should probably see a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a red rash-like patch on my neck and I am unsure as to what it is. It is not raised and not itchy?

Red patch: Even though the patch isn't itchy it still could be an allergic response or slight irritation/inflammation from something that comes in contact with your neck(ex. Clothing, chains, cologne). You could try applying a cortisone type cream or ointment to see if resolves. A physician or dermatologist would have to examine the patch in order to advise you. ...Read more

My nephew has red, itchy raised bumps on his elbows and knees. Was prescribed a steroid which didn't improve the rasH, what could this be? He's 3

Itchy Rash: Red, Raised, Itchy bumps sounds like a description of hives. Usually oral steroids improve a hive-like rash.

I would be happy to consult with your nephews mom as I am in Ohio. ...Read more

I have a blotchy red raised rash that is very itchy on my right breast?

Should see doc: Many types of rash present in this way. If completely new, then my initial thoughts would be hives vs fungal infection vs contact allergy. Taking a short acting Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (antihistamine) may improve the itching, which would be indicative of hives. These would be most likely to persist (come and go) for 3-10 days. If so, then begin a longer acting med like cetirizine. OTC antifungal if scaling rash ...Read more

I have a large red rash under left armpit. It's not raised not painful and not itchy. The entire area is red in the shape of a circle. Noticed today.?

Need to see rash: Your rash being in just one armpit somewhat lessens the likelihood it's due to deodorant/antipersperants. There are a number of other conditions that can cause underarm rash. Some of them are intertrigo, Candida, other fungal infections and reaction to shaving. **The rash of Lyme disease can occur in one armpit.

Bra rash is super itchy, red, stings to the touch, raised \u0026 inflamed. Days after still red now with bumps with black dots? What are these black dots?

Your initial: Description sounds like an inflammation of skin hair follicles or a friction rash or, infrequently a contact type dermatitis (doubt), the fact that it stings suggests that there is some superficial skin breakdown. If the black "dots" brush or wash off easily and you wore a black bra it is just fibers from the bra. Wouldn't know what else would cause that without seeing. ...Read more
