Doctor insights on:
Whiteheads On My Legs
Rash: It is difficult to diagnose a rash without seeing it. I would see your primary care physician, and if he or she can't diagnose it, I would see a dermatologist.
Rash: With what you describe is sounds like folliculitis or inflammation/infection of the hair follicles. Do you shave these areas? With rashes, as a doctor, we must see and feel the rash to really be able to diagnose and treat. Best to see your health care provider to check this rash. Best of luck.
My 9 year old have fine bumps on his face, arms, legs, and back of the neck. What could it be if they have whiteheads on them?

It is treated with good moisturization and avoiding harsh soaps, etc. However any skin condition that persists for very long should be evaluated by a physician. A dermatology referral may be needed.

Dilated Pore: A dilated pore is a condition in which a small skin tumor forms within a hair follicle. Dermatologists often call the resulting bump an open comedo, although a dilated pore does not have the exact same cause as acne blemishes from excess sebum. This skin problem is also frequently called a dilated pore of winer, .See 1 more doctor answer
Infection: This is more common with being overweight, excessive sweating and diabetes. Do not squeeze, it may get much bigger. Use hot compresses to bring to a head naturally. If it does not respond oral antibiotics maybe necessary. Your other drugs and any history of drug alleries is very important if you see your doctor.See 5 more doctor answers
I have some red pimple at lower legs? What I could be? It's kinda dried now but still pinkish colour.
Folliculitis: It could be several things, but likely it is folliculitis. That is a usually mild infection where the hairs come out of the skin. You can get it from shaving or being in a hot tub. You can try washing after shaving with an anti-bacterial soap, such as dial. It can resolve without any treatment. Sometimes you will need antibiotics to get it to clear up.
I see a skin bump on the left leg of my husband. What might be the reason? M sure it's not pimple since its big.
Also consider Lipoma: If it is red, sore, and increasing in size over time- Dr Yetimyan is absolutely right. A boil or abscess will generally worsen until it is drained. If it has no color change, and is not painful, it could be a lipoma. Purple bluish lumps can be lymphangiomas. These last two are not concerning. There are a few other things to consider, but it would depend on it's characteristics.See 1 more doctor answer
