? Infection: Of hair follicles, or fungal infection, keep the area clean and dry, avoid tight clothing/underwear, try OTC antibiotic cream, unless allergic to it, if fungal infection, OTC antifungal cream can help too, if no improvement in few days, please see your doctor for proper management

Red itchy rash under breast and groin area it looks like sun burn with bumps. I'm itchy all over but no rash other then those areas. What can this be?

Red itchy rash under breast and groin area it looks like sun burn with bumps. I'm itchy all over but no rash other then those areas. What can this be?

Yeast infection?: If you are overweight, the areas under the breasts, the love handle, and the groin are more susceptible to candida infection. If this applies to you, try to keep these areas dry by using antiperspirant. In the meanwhile try some anti-fungal cream on the areas for a few days. If still not improved after a week, see you doctor. For overweight people, losing some weight should be a long-term goal.

I have a sore throat with small red itchy bumps in my groin area. What could it be? Are they related?

I have a sore throat with small red itchy bumps in my groin area. What could it be? Are they related?

Possible: Since viral infections can cause the sore throat and a skin rash, they may be related. On the other hand, I would expect a more generalized skin involvement when a viral infection is involved. If this has lasted for more than 10 days or been getting worse, see your doctor.

Can you get small, itchy bumps on your groin from a yeast infection?

Can you get small, itchy bumps on your groin from a yeast infection?

Yes: Yes you can but the rash is usual moist with a yeast infection. Soap residue may cause the same problem and thus be sure that the area is rinsed out thoroughly after bathing.

Sudden reddish, somewhat itchy rash around groin area, what do I do?

Don't panic.: Nothing makes people more nervous than a rash in the genital area. It could be anything from jock itch to an allergy to something you applied in that area to, yes, something you caught from intimate contact. Put your mind at ease by seeing your doctor and getting it sorted out. You can try otc Hydrocortisone cream first if you wish, but if that doesn't work, see your doc or a dermatologist.

Acne? Pityrosporum?: Clusters of red itchy bumps on your body could be acne, but it could also be pityrosporum folliculitis. Acne can be treated with any of the over the counter benzoyl peroxide washes. If you are not improving, you may need to see a dermatologist for a prescription anti fungal. How long has this been going on?

What could cause itchy bumps like misquito bites on my arms and stomach area?

What could cause itchy bumps like misquito bites on my arms and stomach area?

Reaction: Sounds like you are describing hives. This is likely an allergic reaction to something. Could be another type of bug bite but more likely it is a reaction to something that you ate or something that came in contact with your skin. You should have your doctor take a look and decide how to treat.

What are these itchy bumps at my chin area and my jaw area?? they've been there for months! Grows puss, clear, then repeat. Folliculitis? What are they

Folliculitis: Definitely sounds like folliculitis. Try better shaving technique. Make sure to use hot water to open pores and try shaving daily with a sharp blade to prevent curly beard hair from growing back into skin which can set up these types of reactions. Moisturize area after each shave to keep skin healthy. If there are signs of infection might need topical bacterial ointment.
