See Your Doctor: There are numerous causes for the rash you described including infections, external irritants. Manifestation of systemic diseases, and more. Be aware that diagnosis of skin lesions is very challenging without visual inspection. Additionally a complete medical history and exam is necessary to provide a full diagnostic picture. See your doctor now for correct and prompt diagnosis/treatment.

July I noticed my skin breaking out, heat rash, was going away now seems to be back along with whiteheads on face. Looks bad like allergic reaction, help?

May not be allergy: You don't really describe the original rash and don't mention itching. You also have other issues. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) may cause abdominal pain and diarrhea. Try an anti-histamine such as fexofenadine (allegra) or Loratadine (claritin, alavert). I don't suggest Cetirizine (zyrtec) or Diphenhydramine (benadryl), because they may worsen constipation. If no better in 2 days, see your physician.

How post scabies manifested? Are there new rashes, new white head pimples, crawling?

Infected scabies: Sorry your question is not clear. Yes scabies can get infected. New pimples would probably be a different thing, Irrespective of that antibiotics would be needed.

Many causes: Irritation and allergic reactions. Food allergy, wool, chemicals, soaps and other substances can irritate the skin and cause itching. Dry skin, pinched nerves, shingles. Internal diseases: diabetes, liver disease, malabsorption of wheat (celiac disease), kidney failure, iron deficiency anemia, thyroid problems and cancers, including leukemia and lymphoma. Check up if no improvement.

Skin rash lower leg itching and like pimples in small area and also up calf. But spread out - more on one leg than other?

Skin Rash Leg/itchin: It is very difficult to say exactly what it can be for sure without looking at the rash.But from description it seems you have some kind of contact dermatitis of allergic type as it is only limited to one leg. You should see your doctor to have it diagnosed and treated properly as it may be fungus or some other infection causing the rash.

See answer: There are 8 herpes virus types. Types most familiar to us: herpes simplex viruses (types 1 and 2) which can cause mouth cold sores and/or genital herpes; and varicella-zoster virus which causes chicken pox and shingles. Type-specific herpes blood test can help detect prior exposure to Types 1 and 2. L-Arginine, a common supplement, reportedly promotes replication of the herpes virus. Significant?

Yes: You have a mycoplasmal chest infection and erythema multiforme until proved otherwise. It's not a perfect fit for what you describe, but this is common and seriously enough that you need to be seen by a specialist, hopefully in derm.

My daughter has tiny, whitehead like bumps in her head like bumps in her head. Could it be something more than a rash?

My daughter has tiny, whitehead like bumps in her head like bumps in her head. Could it be something more than a rash?

Maybe: That is tough to answer without seeing it. White bumps in a newborn can be nothing significant. In an older child could be just a rash...A virus...If they are tender that is a concern. Are they on the scalp? Or on the hair shaft in which case we think of nits. Is it in the hairline or in the hair? A great question and best answered with a face to face visit with your pediatrician.
