Small itchy bumps from being in the sun on my arms. Occurs every summer. Itch is terrible.

Sun or allergy?: Some people get reactions like this whenever they are in the sun too long. Try to avoid direct sun, wear loose shirts with sleeves. For itching, try Cortizone 10 or similar cream. Also can take oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the itch. Also, could it be your sunscreen? Some people have allergic reactions to sunscreens. Try switching brands. Good luck!

Contact dermatitis: Sounds like a contact dermatitis reaction to bleach which is a strong irritant. A topical steroid cream will help along with an antihistamine for itching. If it continues or gets worse see a doctor for stronger medicine. Wear gloves when cleaning with bleach and dilute it with water.

Bug bites.: What you are describing could be bug bites of some type due to the nonspecific location. Because of the tropical climate, it could be any number of arthropods. You may want to see a physician for treatment since the number is so high extending over a fairly large body surface area. Additionally, watch for any signs of infection--fevers, night sweats or redness and enlargement of the actual bumps.

Hard to say: But one would suspect something from the new bedspread might be the cause- although it may have nothing to do with it at all. If you have put away the new bedspread and continue to have the skin rash more than a week after, consider seeing a dermatologist. In the meanwhile, try topical hydrocortisone cream.

Hives: Raised itchy bumps could be hives, which are due to a whole host of causes. Anthistamine medication could reduce the bumps and itch if truly hives. However, a photo of your rash is very important. Either consult a physician on this site with a photo or in person, or see a doctor in person to diagnose if the rash does not improve.

No way to tell: It 'd be best for you to consult a dermatologist unless these bumps have been present for a very short time and have resolved with topical hydrocortisone. The cause of a skin rash is not easy to pinpoint especially when one does not know what it looks like.

Contact rash: With the limited information: he is itchy and the rash is not infected or sore. He sounds otherwise normal. His rash may be a contact allergic rash. A trial of antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec may be indicated with cool compresses/soaks and topical anti-itch creams/lotions like calamine/caladryl/1% hydrocortisone. If he appear more "ill" and uncomfortable, see your pediatrician.

Folliculitis: Inflammation of the hair follicle occurs for many reasons, but when associated with shaving usually is caused by a dull razor, sensitivity to the shaving/ hygeine product or friction by clothing. Trauma from hair extraction through waxing may also produce this.
