Two year old has pimple like bumps on chin and looks like a light rash on chest and back. No fever, no symptoms. What could it be?

Rash: Difficult to know without seeing it. 1 possibility is that it may be staph or strep on his chin, called impetigo with a more generalized rash that often accompanies it. If this is the case he requires antibiotics to protect particularly his kidneys. Have the rash examined and get a confirmed diagnosis to help with his care. All the best in getting this sorted out. ...Read more

Have rash on chest and concerned its an STD or HIV. Small red area-would go get tested but understand it takes 3 months before I can be tested.

Have rash on chest and concerned its an STD or HIV. Small red area-would go get tested but understand it takes 3 months before I can be tested.

See below: You can get tested anytime. If the result is positive, it is definitive. If the exposure was less than one year ago, you will need to be retested. At three months after exposure you could get an HIV nucleic acid and if that is negative, it would rule out HIV. See this site for more info.

Small bumps on my chest where I got burnt from tanning bed. They came after I peeled a little but they aren't red and they don't hurt or itch?

Small bumps on my chest where I got burnt from tanning bed. They came after I peeled a little but they aren't red and they don't hurt or itch?

Sorry to hear: You overdid it at the tanning salon. As you know, this increases your risk for future skin cancer. Very likely the "burn" caused some inflammation in your skin; if bacteria from skin contact with surface should be red. It sounds like it is very mild as there is no redness or itching. Put some OTC cortisone cream on the bumps; they should resolve in a few days. Please reconsider/avoid tanning beds:) ...Read more

There are small red bumps on my chest and I try to get rid on it for the past 3 days, do I need to go to a hospita?

Not an emergency: Doesn't sound like an emergency to me. Cool compresses might help. Find out if there is something that you are ingesting, applying locally, (sun screen?) or maybe your detergent or fabric softener. Could be an allergic reaction to a medicine that you are taking. A doctor's visit should do the trick. It will save you lots of time and money over going to the emergency room ...Read more

I ave a small cluster of bumps on my chest over my left breast, I have had it a month now. The itching was on and off, now the itching got unbearable?

Unclear: Without seeing the skin lesion, it is hard to say what it is. Sometimes, an itchy lesion can be caused by a fungus - in this case you could try a cream like lotrimin (clotrimazole). However, it could be a number of other things as well. If this does not resolve quickly, you need to get in and have it checked. There are some skin problems of the breast that can be very serious. ...Read more
