The rash on my chest is red and it goes to skin colored as it heads to my right and itches whether I put neo or lotion. I need to know. Please help?

Dr. can look at it: Red spots can be from many causes, such as: viral infections, other infections, medication causes, strep throat, hot-tub rashes, heat rashes, reactions to creams / lotions, allergic reactions to various things (including foods), internal disorders (such as kidney disease, auto-immune disease), etc... That means any rash that persists or is worrisome in appearance needs to be checked by a doctor. ...Read more

Some kind of rash on my elbow, underarm and back of my neck it is bumpy and skin colored. When you scratch it a lot and over time, it will get tougher and the area appears to be pink. If I keep scratching and scratching until it bleeds, it will become dry

Some kind of rash on my elbow, underarm and back of my neck it is bumpy and skin colored. When you scratch it a lot and over time, it will get tougher and the area appears to be pink. If I keep scratching and scratching until it bleeds, it will become dry

This : This really does sound like eczema. That was my first thought before i even read your doctor's diagnosis. You could also be dealing with a dermatitis, due to an allergy. I recommend you request allergy testing or blood testing (check with your doctor regarding prices), and also a higher strength triamcinolone cream or another steroid cream like Elocon is good. Keep the areas hydrated. Use vaseline, aquaphor, or eucerin cream (in a jar).
Good luck. ...Read more

I originally wore a sticky bra. It gave me an awful rash. I noticed an almost skin color mole type bump on my breast that was itchy as well. Is this bad?

I originally wore a sticky bra. It gave me an awful rash. I noticed an almost skin color mole type bump on my breast that was itchy as well. Is this bad?

If reacting to bra..: If skin reacts to a sticky bra's adhesive, or to the material in the bra, she can avoid using that brand of bra. For such an itchy rash, sometimes using a few days of over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream will help the irritated skin get back to normal. A mole in that location would itch too, but should also return to normal. Otherwise, one can get a primary doctor's or dermatologist's exam. ...Read more

I have a rash on forearms & thighs. Skin colored, slightly pink. Not itchy. Small bumps all over, not patchy. Possibly allergic reaction to z-pack?

Many possibilities: This could be a reaction to a z-pac, a new food, or some other exposure. I would hold stop the med for now and contact your pcp in the am. S/he may want to change the med or have you evaluated. This med is going to be in your system for a while. So more rash may continue to come up for some time. ...Read more

Is it normal in healing process of fungal infection between breasts, the red itchy rash turns into brown spot? Will it turn into usual skin color?

Generally: With time the skin color may return to normal, but there are instances when, since some inflammatory cells take up pigmented damaged tissue, that the area may remain darker than the surrounding area. Ask anyone who has had hematomas (blood collections in tissue), in which the uptake of iron by macrophages results in permanent dark areas. Not in everybody, but some. ...Read more
