ITCHY BACKSIDE: More history helpful but sounds like some form of dermatitis; skin inflammation after contact with something to which your body (skin) is overly sensitive. Since it appears from your description to be localized to one place, you might try a combination of topical (skin cream/ointment) Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Hydrocortisone. Let me know how that works... if not affective... we can discuss other options. ...Read more

Pimple like bump on side of foot that are itchy. Bumpy but itches like a mosquito bite. What is this?

Hard to say without: seeing it. It could be a contact rash to something. Is it only on one foot? Any new creams, lotions, shoes? Do you have the rash anywhere else? I would recommend that you have it seen by your primary care doctor or a dermatologist, so that it can be diagnosed properly. Or if you are signed up for HealthTap Prime, you may be able to consult with one of us that way and send a photo. ...Read more

It sound to me: by the areas involved that you may have PSORIASIS! My suggestion is that you start by seeing a Board Certified Dermatologist...there are many TREATMENTS if that is the diagnosis. Over the counter steroid (cortisone) is a FIRST AID you can try....but check with your PCP for any other treatment if you cannot see a Dermatology specialist soon! Hope this helps! Dr z ...Read more
