It: It sounds like a fungal rash (tinea corporis). Try an over the counter anti-fungal cream; Clotrimazole twice a day is a good choice. If there is no improvenment in 1-2 weeks then Hydrocortisone up to four times a day may work if it is a dermatitis or an eczematous rash. If that does not work encourage your friend to see a doctor. ...Read more

I have tiny flesh colored rashes on my forearms. They look like goosebumps. Also dry circular patches of dry skin. What could it be?

For common rashes such as eczema, mild reactions to plants or chemicals, excessive dryness, or little itchy bumps, over-the-counter hydrocortisone 1% cream usually helps. Itchy bumps on many body parts might be an allergic reaction to something or from other causes. ...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?

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

I hav skin rash docter says its scabies and now in this morning I have a small amount urine with bleeding I also tak antiallergy what is the problm?

UTI? STD?: These two problems may have nothing to do with each other. However, scabies sometimes is acquired from sex partners, therefore STDs are more common in people with scabies. Small urine amounts and blood can be due to gonorrhea or chlamydia, or a non-STD urinary tract infection. See a doctor. If at risk for STD (new partner, etc), Australia's national health sexual health centers are superb! ...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
