Consider fungus: The rash can be a variety of things including fungus, contact dermatitis, eczema, intertrigo. If a little over the counter cortisone doesn't clear it, make an appointment to see your dermatologist

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.

Skin rash: The differential is very large. Could be sun exposure. Could be contact dermatitis. I would follow up with your family physician or dermatologist and give a more detailed rendering. When did it happen? Was the child taking any medication at the time? Any travel history? Use of new detergents or change in clothes? Have a great day.

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.

Need exam: Eczema is likely and gets worse in winter. See a dermatologist. Meanwhile apply a lubricating cream several times a day, especially after a soak [bath or shower].

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.

Photdermatitis: We no longer recommend "tanning sessions" as the long term damage to the skin and the increase in skin cancers is a national problem. You may have a photodermatitis or a photocontact dermatitis or a systemic disease. You should have it evaluated by a dermatologist.

Few things...: Could be irritated skin, contact with some sort of allergen, fungal infection, the beginning of a bacterial infection (less likely)... Lots of things! Best to get it checked out by their doc. Good luck!

Itchy Rash: Red, Raised, Itchy bumps sounds like a description of hives. Usually oral steroids improve a hive-like rash. This type of rash can be brought on by recent viral infections, food ingestion or drug ingestion. There are, however, many causes of rash in a 3 year old child so seeing the rash would be helpful to assist in diagnosis. I would be happy to consult with your nephews mom as I am in Ohio.

Allergy: You may have an allergic reaction to something. Possible exposure to an irritant. Try Hydrocortisone cream twice dailiy over-the-counter. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night may be taken for itching. Avoid hot water, soaps that can make it worse.

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

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

Pityriasis: Your description is consistent with a recurrence of pityriasis. The lesion you describe sounds like the herald patch, a very common sign of the rash.

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.?

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. You can upload an image in an online consultation at Health Tap or see your physician

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?

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.
