I have several very itchy, red, bumps spread randomly on my arms, legs, and stomach?

Hi, i was wondering if someone could help me with a skin rash/bump/bite. I have several very itchy, red, bumps spread randomly on my arms, legs, and stomach. I have yet to find anything that works for it. None of the diagnosis from the doctors have worked. I thought it could be from my father having targeted chemotherapy at home. But, that was quickly shot down by his doctor. I am not positive it is contagious. It seems to have varied, but still traveled, to all the household members. Each one different and not responsive to any treatments. Any help would be great!

  1. Hi..
    Thanks for writing to us..

    As per your complain eruption of red itchy bumps all over the body can be due to common causes like:
    -CONTACT DERMATITIS that is an allergic reaction which occurs when skin comes in contact with certain agents that your body is allergic to like skin cosmetics, detergents, soaps, fragrances,leather, latex, poison ivy etc..
    -FOLLICULITIS or generalised hair follicle infection caused by Staphylococcus bacteria leading to formation of painful bumps over different parts of the body..
    -Mite infestation or Scabies..
    You should consult an Allergist or Infectious disease specialist and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation and investigations like blood tests to rule out allergies and infection, micorscopic examination of scrapings from lesion can help..
    As of now you can take anti allergics like benadryl for relieving itching and do cool compresses over bumps..
    Once the cause is ruled out it will be treated accordingly..
    – In case of Contact Dermatitis you will be advised anti allergics, topical steroid ointment application and also avoiding exposure to allergen when it is ruled out…
    In recurring conditions Immunotherapy will be advised to you..
    -In case of folliculitis antibiotics oral and topical and topical steroids can be advised along with anti allergics to control itching..
    -For scabies oral intake of Ivermectin and topical Premethrin can be advised..

    Hope this information helps..
    Thanks and regards.

  2. Hi
    It seems like candida infection, since you have described no other symptoms, also what medication did you use and was not effective? Uploading a photo will be helpful.
    Good Luck

  3. hi,
    it seems to be either a skin infection or an allergic eczema.
    a photograph of the lesion would have been better to diagnose the problem better.
    steroid creams with anti allergic creams will be helpful.

  4. This mostly is a bacterial skin infection ,which needs antibacterial cream and strict hygienic measures ..
