I've suddenly broken out in red, itchy spots all over my arms, legs, hips, back and head - what's going on?

Have it evaluated: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Need for examination: It would require a more detailed history, physical examination and may be some tests to determine the diagnosis. If you have been having excessive menstrual bleeding, anemia from the blood loss could explain these symptoms. It would be prudent to consult your doctor.

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

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.

Heat of shower: And standing can cause peripheral vasodilation and increased blood flow to the lower extremities - can cause slight drop in systolic blood pressure and if your friend has a lower end BP anyhow, this can cause temporary decreased blood flow within the brain and symptoms of light headedness, dizziness, visual disturbances, etc.

I have red small spots with yellow heads on my upper legs an upper arms for about 7 years and I heard that mupirocin could be god but I m feeding?

Not advised: Mupirocin should be reserved for limited use for certain skin infections such as impetigo. If your condition is more chronic, it could be keratosis pilaris --the best treatment fir that would be an aha containing cream.

Warm/burning spots in legs & thighs but since yesterday & when lying down it feels like my head & neck is cold & I feel dizzy, could that be blood clot?

Warm/burning spots in legs & thighs but since yesterday & when lying down it feels like my head & neck is cold & I feel dizzy, could that be blood clot?

Not likely: Your symptoms don't sound like a blood clot but it's very hard to know without an exam. They do sound concerning and I would recommend following with your doctor. If you are acutely short of breath then go to the emergency room now.

I got 1 red bumpy swollen & itchy spot that look like a mosquito bite but then got a white head & next thing I knew I got 8 more on my legs. Help!?

Ant bites?: Looks like they could be fire ant bites (recall if you were bare footed outdoors) You may take OTC Loratadine once a day for the itching and apply Caladryl or Calamine to the foot, as well as cold compresses.

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.
