What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved I would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more

I have red itchy rash on my right buttock. I sit all day and is that a cause. Iam a receptionist. It comes and goes. Does not itch all the time.

Rash: Rashes are impossible to diagnose over the computer. Usually sitting is not a risk factor for developing a rash, unless you are very old (It states you are 106?), and you get skin "breakdown" from not moving around (similar to a "bed sore"). When the rash is visible, have a dr. Look at it to give you a diagnosis and any necessary treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more
