Impetigo? Get seen!: It sounds like you could have a rash that became infected. You may need oral and topical antibiotics as well as a surgical scrub like hibiclens or some hydrogen peroxide to clean the area. Dry itchy skin becomes cracked, rashy and infected skin. I think you should head to a physician for evaluation especially because of the yellow crusting. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help with itch. ...Read more

This: This rash could be a few different things.
- impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria - either streptococcus or staph. This needs to be treated with antibiotics.
- contact dermatitis is skin inflammation. It can be caused by plants such as poison ivy or poison oak or it can be from contact of a chemical or item that a person is particularly sensitive to. This is usually treated with steroid creams or oral steroids.
- viral illness such as chicken pox, shingles or herpes can also cause painful blisters on a red base. This can be treated with anti-virals or just needs to run its course depending on the severity of the infection.

The best thing to do is to contact his doctor and have him seen, since each possible problem requires different treatments. Good luck. ...Read more

Recently I saw a small red bump on my inner thigh then today it was now 3 small yellow colored bumps. I scratched them off but should I be worried?

Recently I saw a small red bump on my inner thigh then today it was now 3 small yellow colored bumps. I scratched them off but should I be worried?

Probably not, but: Stop scratching off 'bumps' unless you then disinfect them and bandage to prevent infection or irritation. You may be tough, and it may not 'hurt' but it can still get infected and lead to bigger problems than you want to invite. If it returns, go for an exam. Also, if you know of a possible risky source, have lab testing. ...Read more
