Kp
I have keratosis pilaris too and it's pretty annoying! I've read that kp can itch, but mine rarely do. Here's another site about kp that has a discussion forum and recommended products to treat it as well..

you all might want to try researching keratosis pilaris. I have it. It's tiny red bumps that can occur all over the body (arms, legs, face, butt, back etc) although mine don't regularly itch, just bothersome.

Little Red Bumps
I'm 17 and about a week ago my legs began to itch like crazy and I noticed these bumps on the back of my leg. At the time there were only a few, but now there are hundreds of them on my legs and thighs, and now there are a few on my arm. They itch like crazy and I can't seem to figure out what they are or how to get them to stop itching. The bumps are tiny and red, they vary in size though, but none of them are really big. Any suggestions?

Cure For Itchy Red Bumps!!!!
I just had the same thing! Came from nowhere.
Little itchy red bumps that seem like bug bites and are everywhere. I itched some so much I started getting eczema.

I looked a month back in my life and thought about what i'd changed in my routine.

The answer was my exercise weights!

I'd just bought them a couple weeks before. They were causing an allergic reaction!

They were those heavy metal ones with the gray coating on them.
I decided to stop using them and see what would happen and a few days later the problem started to go away. Now the itchy red bumps are completely gone after two and a half weeks.

You guys may not have weights but it could be something else metal or with a synthetic coating. Check out what's changed in your life lately or what touches your skin (even just your hands) on a regular basis and hopefully you'll find the culprit.

I wanted to tell everyone my "diagnosis/cure" so I found this site and registered.
Hope this helps you guys and you find relief!!!

Strange red bumps that feel like poison oak rash
OMG that could be it. I have been freaking out it is some kind of std. I was in the gym the few days before the bumps appeared. Their originating location is consistent with me doing dead lifts (for those not familiar with the gym, a better deadlift will require you to drag the bar over your knees/quads as to avoid putting improper pressure on the back)
I am still getting check out to be sure, but I feel a lot better now!

Itching
Hi:

i just finished reading your post, and I just have one question . . . .


Do you eat a lot of diet soft drinks, and use artifical sweetners?


If so, please do to Dorway.Com, or google the word “vasculitis”.

Another good site: Gethealthyagain.Com/

do a lot research on this subject. I found that the Gethealthyagain had some very good information regarding detoxifying the body.

Another good site: aspartame.ca/detox1.html#top

i suffered with a lot the same problem for 3 years, before I found out (on my own, after seeing 2 doctors) what my problem is, and i'm still on the road to recovery. The itchy started about 3 months after I started taking a popular name brand sweetener, and I couldn't figure out what was going on. A lot of other problems slowly surfaced. You'll be able to see the symptoms on Dorway, and when you do, you"ll probably start putting two and two, together.

Good luck!

Pityriasis Rosea
I currently have pityriasis rosea...

It started out as a 1.5-2 inch long oval, on my upper armpit (right)... Looked like a burn... This developed some whitish scaling around the inner edges of the oval, then across the entire patch. This was the herald patch. Then, I started developing bright red dots/welts across my chest. Then under my chest and across my torso, like a band above my waist... Then down the inside of my arms, ending before my wrists. And some on my waist and back. Hopefully this is as bad as it will get. I definitely look like I am polka-dotted in red on white... Looks like a terrible case of mosquito or spider bites.

It smarts and itches more when I am hot, or sweat. Hydrocortisone cream helps somewhat...

Before the secondary rash appeared, my skin itched all over like crazy... Very uncomfortable. And before the herald patch appeared, I had a bad headache.

If this sounds like you, see your doctor. And don't worry. It will go away eventually (hopefully sooner, rather than later)...

Itchy Red Bumps
I'm soooo glad to find out there are people like me going trough this!!
Its started out about a week ago I had all these little red bumps all over my chest and for lack of better way to put , my boobs, and they were kind itchy ,but then a few days later I found that they ad spread down my belly and on my sides now they and also on my iner tighs ,back and some (but they arnt red) on my fore head. None of them are really itchy and they kinnda looked like bits, which really made me worry thinking my bed might have chigers or somthing on the matress.

I figered i'de check out the internet before I went and payed a Dr. And then found out that they where nothing and would go away on there own. I've been putting some cream on them that I used when I had a rash on my neck which has made them stop itching completly.
I read in one of the post that this sorta thing happens in april-may? Thats good. Plus i"m alergic to dust and polen so I thought it might have something to do with that and I have sensative skin. So lets see if it lasts a mounth then I have about 3 and 1/2 weeks to go. I can't wait till its over its so embarising! (sp?)
thanks for all your help everyone!!

Itchy Red Spots Everywhere Except the Face
You may have found out what you have by now, but I have a similar condition with itchy red spots first appearing on my inner arms and armpits and then spreading over the rest of my body except for my face. I went to the doctor and he immediately diagnosed it as scarlet fever. He explained it to me and showed me pictures it was exactly what I had. It comes from some strep throat bacteria. I thought this was weird because my throat didn't hurt, but he did a strep throat test and it came up positive. They usually cure this with penicillin, but i'm allergic to it so he gave me an ethromycin antibiotic and it is starting to clear up. The rash is only on my arms now and disappearing and i've only been on the medicine for 2 days. If you go to netdoctor.Co.Uk and search for scarlet fever you can see the symptoms of it (remember you don't have to experience all of them to have it, I never even had a fever). Hope this helps someone

Help!
This just started a few days ago, I first noticed that my inner thighs were itching like crazy, then I noticed that there were a few bumps maybe only 2 or 3-but they itched so bad that I now have bruises on my inner thighs. Then it spread to my outer thighs and the same thing happened and I got bruises from scratching. I do bruise easily but not usually like this. Well now my sides, chest, and wrist itch but there is only one or two bumps in each spot. I do not think I have anything that was mentioned before but I could be wrong. These bumps go down after I use some calagel but they come back up when it starts itching again. Can anyone help me? I haven't changed laundry soap or bath products and haven't changed my eating habits so I do not know what this could be.

I am no dr but their are a lot of times that this can happen if you change to certain soaps or certain laundry detergents as I too have had this problem and figured it out myself and I also have gotten poison oak a few times but as they say if ever in doubt go get it checked out as it could be something more serious.
The best to you!

Bug Bites?
I have been getting some kind of bites for a few years now, I didn't care at first because they were just one or two of them. In the recent years I have been getthing atleast 2 bites every 2 months, and I think its bed bug but im not really sure. The bites are swollen, red and they itch, also its got a small blister looking thing on the tip of the swollen area. Can anyone help me? I have been using some hydrocortisone creme like cortizone 10, but it still leaves a brownish scar, and they last for months. Does anyone know what it is and what product to use to clear it?

Guys, if it's something that just appeared out of nowhere it's probably an allergic reaction to something.
Is there anything different (past three weeks) that your hands or body is now in contact with??? Find out and hopefully you'll find the problem.
I had this problem a while back, thought it was bug bites because they'd seem to just appear out of the blue. I'd wake up with two more or so every morning.
They were gone in two weeks when I found out it was my weights that i'd just bought. The metal coating was the culprit.

Again, hope this helps.

Re: Itchy Red Bumps
I have had the exact same thing twice now. Starts out on my hands as little tiny bumps, not necessarily red, then I notice it starting all over my legs and feet, very red and itchy at this point, and eventually spreads to everywhere except my face.. I thought it was strange that the rash discriminated against the face. Thank god for that though!!! It is very extremely uncomfortable, as it seems to attack my feet, and they become covered in red bump/hives on the soles of my feet and in between my toes, to the point where my feet are so swolen that I can not walk. The second worst spot is underneath my breasts. These little bumps just love it in there!!! My doctor has prescribed a medrol dose pack. It's a chortizonal (spelling) treatment. Last time it took two medrol dose packs and about two weeks for everything to go away. It's a horrible thing to go through.

In Need of Answers :[
Yeah similar or exactly similar with everyone here, i've been noticing these little red bumps thingies everywhere on my body, except the face. It's really itchy for some reason, and although many people have said that it is usual to be having them appear on you during april or may; it is now late of june that i've been getting them. Is this a different illness or something to everyone else? I thought of maybe it was from swimming in chlorine pool that my skin had gotten allergic to, but then I also thought maybe if my skin has been too dry. The spots appear under my armpits, thighs, legs, arms, and the whole body. First I start to itch and then as I scratch-they appear. Can someone give me answers about this please?

Re: In Ned of Answers
I would suggest asking your docotr for a medrol dose pack. These are cortico-steroid pills and whenever I get this horrifyingly uncomfortable rash all over my body, those pills usually take care of it pretty quickly. This has only happened to me twice, and the doctor has no idea exactly what could be causing it... I believe it is some sort of alergic reaction to something.....

Never try to wait it out hoping they will go away because they won't!! At the first sign of getting these bumps, get the medrol dose pack and hope that the pills keep it from getting any worse.

After reading all the posts in this thread, I realized everyone has someting similar to me, but different problems. I have little red bumps everywhere. I'm 17 and I think i've had them my whole life. Usually they aren't too bad, but this year and last year they have been the worst. They are about the size of a pin head and only appear where I have hair follicles. I have none on my face and for the most part they are just where I wear closes. Sometime I get them on my legs but they usually go away quick. I seem to get them the worst around my armpits, lower back and chest. I've been to the doctor and he doesn't know what it is.

Wow. I Thought I Was Bad.
So im a hypochondriac and overreact to everything, but I do have itchy symptoms on my upper back, chest, underarms, thighs, groin and butt. I have very small (pin sized) red dots but they are scattered. Then there are a few large red bumps on my butt and at the crease of my breast (im a large male and do have breasts...) I also had flaky skin on my chest but that is getting better now

in some places it itches and theres nothing. The itching is more noticeable when I put on clothing, and feels like chaffing. It kind of hurts to sit down and its more noticeable after sitting for long periods of time (i work on a computer all day so im sitting all the time). I have acne so at first I thought it was this, but now I cant be sure.

I am going to the doctor on friday and I will tell you all what he said. However my problem seems to be most like the person who said their roommate had the same thing... Could this be from a detergent im using? Or something in my washer? It happened shortly after I wore new clothes without washing... Actually clean clothes itch as well and the itching goes away as I wear the clothes more... Does this make any sense?

Scabies
eabeckman wrote:
don't mean to scare anyone, but it also sounds like it could be scabies. Most people hear that word and think it's some risque std, but it's actually quite common to get (and fairly easy to get rid of) - especially if you have the rash in mostly 'warmer' places and none on the face. It's spread by direct contact, but it is very contagious (similar to lice) and it often doesn't show up for a while until suddenly you break out in an extremely itchy rash (most commonly between and under the breasts, in the upper thigh and pelvic area, and on the inner elbows and armpits). My husband and I went through a heck of a time trying to get a doctor to finally diagnose it - I finally had to just tell my doctor what to prescribe (lindane) and we finally got rid of it. They say it's very commonly spread among children and my husband is a pediatric nurse so i'm sure that's we got it!

me and my husband and my 15year old daughter have the same symptoms. We were also told it was scabies and was given a rx for permethrin lotion1% to treat the scabies but it did not help at all we still have those same bumps, so I wouldnt say it was scabies it is something else and it must be air bourne or in the water for so many people to have it.
