Related?: Not exactly sure what you are describing but if they are close to the IV site it could be a superficial phlebitis but could also be an infection. Could be a reaction to what was given to you thru the IV but 2 weeks later much less likely. Best to let your doctor sort it out. ...Read more

I have small bumps under my skin, mostly on my forearm. They are cyst like and itchy. Could itbe neurofibroma?

I have small bumps under my skin, mostly on my forearm. They are cyst like and itchy. Could itbe neurofibroma?

Doubt it: If you had neurofibromatosis, you should have been diagnosed at a much younger age. Neurofibromas are characteristically firm, as they are solid nerve tumors, rather than cystic structures. Itching is not a typical symptom of a neurofibroma, rather a symptom reflecting allergy or inflammation. A contact dermatitis or other skin condition sounds more likely. See your pcp or a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a medium sized rash on forearm and it has four small open bumps or bites in it. It's is also dry and has fever. What do I do? What is it?

No way to know: Unfortunately, we can rarely diagnose a rash by a description. Many of the words that patients use to describe rashes are nonspecific. There are many 'doctor words' that aid in description: macule, papule, plaque, pustule, vesicle, and many, many more. Even when doctors describe rashes to one another, it is sometimes difficult to visualize the rash. A picture is worth a 1000 words. ...Read more
