Multiple: How long does the rash last after you got out of the sun? Do you have the same issues after exercise? The problem can be due to what is called cholinergic urticaria which usually occurs during the cooling-off period after an increase in core body temperature (hot shower, sun, exercise, stress etc). If this is what you are experiencing, then taking an antihistamine prior to the exposure may work. ...Read more

Hi i just noticed that before the head of the penis I have these red small rashes. They are not bumps, you can't feel a bump when you touch it?

Most likely, ok...: As long as no local discomfort, such rashes may suggest mild balanitis (inflammation of glans penis), which is usually related with redundant foreskin with poor local hygiene. Without detailed history and inspection, it's hard to make a firm statement.

If any doubt, go to see an expert in the field.

Best luck... ...Read more

Skin rash, month now, skin itches, I scratch, at 1st little bumps would appear, now spreading with raised red lumps with little bumps too, sound like?

Dermograghism: See a dermatologist. Meanwhile, you can take a daily antihistamine. The best one for this is Zyrtec. The generic, cetirizine, is just the same only cheaper. This is a physical urticaria, not allergy. When the skin is stroked, mast cells release histamine, causing itchy, elevated areas in the shape of the contact. Thus, you can write messages on your skin. ...Read more

My hostel mates r suffering from chicken pox. I already had it twice 3 yrs ago. I have started having small red skin rashes. Not 3rd time pox right?

Very unlikely: It is very unlikely to get chicken pox for a third time. Sometimes, people think they had chicken pox but actually had some other rash. In those folks, they actually may not be immune to chicken pox, and may catch it during an outbreak. If getting a rash, one can check with a doctor to see what it might be. ...Read more

I have severe allergic reactions to wheat and gluten. Get very bad skin rashes, blotches of little watery blisters and red bumps. Migraines. How do I know if its just an allergy or if it's celuiac disease?

All of your symptoms except for the watery blisters can be caused by the wheat allergy and possibly other grass grains (barley, rye, oats, rice and rarely corn) Wheat, barley and rye contain gluten. The others don’t but sometimes can be cross-contaminated. ...Read more
