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

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
