What Does A Rash On One Arm Mean
I have a thick rash only on my left arm pit. What should I do? The rash is not one big rash. It is spred out in 4 different rashes & bright red.
Get the diagnosis: 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.
Left arm keeps breaking out in eraser-sized rashes each one is made up of many small bumps. Once I even felt the rash pop up out of nowhere. Thoughts?
Rash: Rashes are hard to diagnose sometimes when you are looking at them. Impossible to diagnose without even seeing them. You need to see your doctor.

Last night I ate 2 pcs of chicken and develop some rashes in my arms and legs, can I consider it as one of d foods tat im allergic with?
Not yet: Symptoms such as rash after exposure to something like food may be due to an allergy, but there are multiple things, both allergic and non allergic, that can cause a rash. Food allergy is just one and can be serious if that is the cause. I recommend seeing a board certified allergist for an evaluation and testing.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm currently on the Accutane, and one day I woke up with rashes on my face and both arms. Did Accutane cause rashes? If yes, how do I get rid of it?
It is a side effect: Your rash can be caused by acutane. It is important that you avoid irritants such as sun during this time and stay moisturized. You should also show your rash to your current prescribing doctor.
Please help! I have terrible rashes on my right arm and legs. Strangely, I don't have a rash on my left arm. Can this mean please help! I have developed an allergy to something?

Plan b one step pill and hives related? I took the Plan B pill 2 almost 3 weeks ago and I've started to get hives or rashes on my stomach, arms, legs, back and neck. It weird because I had no other side effects. But I was wondering if it could be related
The: The odds of you having an allergic reaction from a Plan B taken three weeks ago are highly unlikely. Even if this was the case, there is no treatment aside from over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for itching. Consider other potential allergens like new products, lotions, or soaps. Good luck.
I have several heart shaped rashes on my arms and one on my stomach. I've tried all kinds of ringworm creams assuming that's what it is. Left scars?
Hard to say: A common truism about treatment is when appropriate measures don't fix a problem the diagnosis is likely wrong. Skin rashes can represent infections, local reactions, allergies or systemic illness. Diagnosis is often easy when seen by a trained observer. If your treatment for ringworm isn't working it is likely not ringworm. To find out what it is and treatment options will need a visit.See 1 more doctor answer

Red vesicular rash: 18 year old with painful burning vesicles on arm. Get a full medical history and in person physical exam ASAP. You can try a consult in your area as well. If the rash is itchy (pruritic) and painful you need to give more history. The differential is large and it could be anything from zoster to contact dermatitis to chiggers or a reaction to insect bites, bedbugs, or scabies. A picture=1k words.

I have one small itchy rash on my arm it's the only rash I have and I don't know what it is. Do you have any idea?

I continually get a sort of rash on only one arm and only on the bicep. It consists of lots of small red dots that dry up. It's only ever on one arm.
Eczema/dermatitis: A rash that is itchy and scaly is possibly eczema or ringworm (not a real worm, but a name for a fungal infection). Rashes that come and go when it is in contact with something like a watch, rubber band/hair tie, etc can be contact dermatitis, which is due to irritated skin. Eczema and dermatitis can be treated with over the counter hydrocortisone cream.
Several: It is possible to have an infection, fungal or bacterial. You could have an allergic reaction or just a severe irritation to shaving. Some dermatitis can start in one location or be isolated to one area. If fever, pain, or drainage or weeping fluid, see ur dr. If not can try an anti fungal powder to keep dry or mild steroid cream for relief of itch, irritation.See 2 more doctor answers
