What causes red itchy bumps on a childs genitals?

What causes red itchy bumps on a childs genitals?

Difficult to answer: Attempting to diagnose ; then properly treat rashes "over the phone" or without actually inspecting is usually ill-advised. Nonetheless, based on my experience of nearly 30 years of office-based pediatrics, rashes that most frequent the diaper region tend to be either due to yeast or irritation. If you have already attempted home treatment w/o success perhaps it's best to see your pediatrician. Read more

I woke up with an itchy rash all over my body except my face and genitals. It started as tiny red bumps, now some are a little bigger, still red.?

More details: This can be a drug reaction, a viral infection, or the onset of a new skin condition. Given the scanty history and description, I would suggest that you try taking antihistamine to see if it helps. If the itching is intolerable or the rash is getting worse, need to see your doctor.

I have itchy red bumps on my genital area what could they be?

I have itchy red bumps on my genital area what could they be?

Many possibilities: Rashes are quite hard to describe and diagnose in words. A primary care, dermatologist, urologist, or ob-gyn doctor will have to look at a genitals rash in order to tell what it is. If an eczema or allergic rash, Hydrocortisone cream helps. If fungal, an antifungal cream is needed. If bacterial, antibiotic pills or cream is needed. If warts or some other infection, special treatments are needed. Read more

3 days after sex I got small itchy bumps and few blisters on my arms, thighs, legs, hand and feet (not on my genitals or mouth), could this be herpes?

3 days after sex I got small itchy bumps and few blisters on my arms, thighs, legs, hand and feet (not on my genitals or mouth), could this be herpes?

Herpes simplex: That is certainly possible, but without seeing the rash it would be foolish to try and diagnose it. It may not have had anything to do with the sex and you may have chicken pox or some other illness, or this may be a contact dermatitis. Read more

I have a sore throat with small red itchy bumps in my groin area. What could it be? Are they related?

Possible: Since viral infections can cause the sore throat and a skin rash, they may be related. On the other hand, I would expect a more generalized skin involvement when a viral infection is involved. If this has lasted for more than 10 days or been getting worse, see your doctor. Read more

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. Read more

What can cause small red itchy bumps on inner thigh?

What can cause small red itchy bumps on inner thigh?

Many possibilities: Hives localized to the inner thighs may be due to multiple causes. The area is warm and one thigh can rub against the other. It can be due to cloth or chemicals in pants, just to give a few examples. Wear non-tight pants; when itchy, apply Sarna with pramoxime. Otherwise, keep dry with cornstarch or talc. Take an antihistamine such as fexofenadine or cetirizine. No help - see your physician. Read more

I have small red itchy bumps on both my shoulders. They're extremely itchy and red and sore. I'm so confused. I'm a female teen?

I have small red itchy bumps on both my shoulders. They're extremely itchy and red and sore. I'm so confused. I'm a female teen?

Pic worth 1000 words: There's no substitute for seeing a rash. Hard to tell from your brief description what it might be. Acne is common on shoulders but isn't usually very itchy. Could be 'ringworm' which is a skin fungus (tinea corporis), although that doesn't usually get sore. If they've been scratched a lot they might have become infected, which could cause pain. A medical exam would be the best way to know cause. Read more
