Iv had red itching spots wiv watery heads on covering my upper body (chest and arms) it's now spread to my legs feeling very tyerd and sick?

Doctor can evaluate: A primary care doctor can evaluate, as rashes are hard to describe in words. One possible cause of water-filled small blisters could be chicken pox. Chicken pox starts as small reddish spots, which form a very small fluid-filled blister in the middle of each spot. The small blister breaks easily when rubbed, releasing a tiny drop of clear yellowish fluid. Each spot then forms a small scab. ...Read more

3yr old says head hurts but a few min later she says it doesn't, happened last two days and diff spot each time, same with tummy and legs on and off?

Then don't worry: With youngsters, they are learning what hurting is, when it is important, and how to deal with it. Watch for repeated complaints in same spot over a couple/few hours, as then is likely an issue (like headache x 3...Or more), versus here-there-anywhere over day, particularly if no change in behavior / eating habits / activity level. ...Read more

I have red spots on my leg...they don't itch & they seem to be under my skin...what could be the reason?

I have red spots on my leg...they don't itch & they seem to be under my skin...what could be the reason?

Cause of red spots: it is most important to know whether these spots blanche (disappear) after you push on them, which may be viral or allergic. If they do not blanche, capillary bleeding has occurred, either from a tourniquet effect of very tight socks or hose, or from capillary fragility, and you must see your PCP to find the cause, such as a rare condition called Henoch-Schoenlein purpura. ...Read more

I have tiny little blood spots under my skin on my legs and chest iam 25 and female what does this mean?

Angiomas?: Hard to say without seeing them, but i suspect that they are cherry angiomas, which are like moles except that they are made of small blood vessels. They are harmless - if that is indeed what they are. You really should have a dermatologist look at them in person, so that you'll know for certain what they are. ...Read more

Can off and on severe itch be a result of pulled/broken hair. It comes when skin is stretched at those two spots on my leg?

Can off and on severe itch be a result of pulled/broken hair. It comes when skin is stretched at those two spots on my leg?

Not exactly: if you took a scissors and cut the hair, it wouldn't itch. Itching is a skin or lower issue. The pulling of hair if it pulls on the skin might. Some people get hives/histamine release from skin being rubbed/pulled irritated (anti-histamines help). Some feel itching instead of other sensations in the skin (nerve pills help).
cannot say in your particular case. ...Read more
