im 12 and im starting to get them on the back about 15 of them. Then on my neck and face, about 2 on my arm. My brother had them before and had to spend 5 or 2 days in the hospital because they didn't know what was wrong. They started to go away after a week or 2. But I just don't want to walk around with red dots on my face, plus its the christmas holidays I don't really feel like being sick.
To everyone above - look up "pityriasis rosacea". I had it a few years ago - it starts with a "herald patch" (or two or three), then in about a week it explodes with smaller red spots that seem to spread "up" the body. It is a virus that just has to run its course - my dermatologist advised sunlight exposure or moderate tanning sessions. It hates water and will be worst after a shower. It takes 6-12 weeks, usually, to clear up. Horrible in appearance, but not "catching", thank goodness.
Hey, I had the same thing, red spots on my abdomen and back that didn't itch. I didn't go to the doctor, but I think I had pityriasis rosea like jwcs1946 said. I would look it up if I were you, the pictures and descriptions were really similar to my symptoms. Anyway, I didn't see any ways to treat it, most sites say it is just supposed to go away by itself. After 5 days it didn't look any better, and I was getting sick of those embarrassing spots. I decided to try my own sort of skin therapy and tried to not use any irritating skin products.
I bought fragrance free goat's milk soap (it is really great for sensitive skin). Also, I picked up some pure aloe vera with no fragrances, colors, or any other irritants added. Then I also picked up some alveeno moisturizing relief lotion with soothing oat essence (no fragrance). The spots didn't itch in the beginning, but once I started applying the aloe vera and the alveeno lotion, they became slightly itchy after a day or so. I applied both the aloe and lotion as much as I could: in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Well, it has been about three days since I began this regimen and they look like they are starting to fade a little. I've heard aloe is kind of a miracle plant w/ a lot of different healing properties, and it seems to be helping in this case. Also, if hot showers irritate them, I would take lukewarm showers. I hope this helps, good luck!
I have about eight of them now. The first one showed up on my collar bone and almost looks like a healing scrape. it is about two inches long and an inch wide. the three on my chest are about the size of a pencil eraser, and the two down by my belt line are approximately one inch long and very thin. the two on my back are the size of the head of a pin. I dont know what they are, but they've been around for three weeks and just keep showing up. It is kind of scaring me.
Any ideas as to what they are or how to get rid of them?
I just went to the doctor and they told me it is a viral infection. they dont know what causes it or if it is contagious, but it will knock itself out. It is called Pityriasis Rosea. You can google it to see pictures. Mine arent as bad as many I have seen. My doctor said it usually took around two weeks to go away, but can sometimes take much longer.
I had this, and got rid of it- Natural Remedy Treatment that works: Drink- half a teaspoon of tumeric with a little water mix & drink 3 times a day until spots are gone, then drink tumeric once a day after that to keep infections away. Tumeric & Water is a powerful antibiotic excellent for acne carbuncles & all types of infections also protects you against cancer. I also put apple cider vinegar on bandage and apply on spots on stomach every night before I go to bed vinegar sucks out the pus and infection this is also great for infections acne carbuncles spots.
i have the exact same symptoms, i have really REALLY light skin so i don't know if thats the reason. Also i noticed the spots dry easily and start to crack which sucks since they attract more attention.
lately they've reached my collar bone which also sucks because they're noticeable that way, in total i would guess theres about 15 spots in total and they're the same as described above.
Hi . . . Anyone!
I've had similar pin-head sized red spots on abdomen, which seem to have increased in number rapidly of late. Previous ex-partner (alcoholic and a nurse!) vindictively said it was due to liver probs. Am scared (& can't afford to check out at GP's) - anyone got any help?
i have something that i think is similar... i have about 7 red circle's on my left rib cage all close together in about 20cm square radius but they are full red it isnt just an outline... they all range from tiny to quite large... i only noticed them today after getting out the shower anyone got anything on these?
P.S - i dont know if it could be the middle age thing since im only 18 but please if u got any info help me .... i have no allergies and my health is fine and has been for many years.
Okay people, not to be an a-hole, but there is no need to sit there and say you have the same thing all your doing is crouding this post and making it verry hard for somone to find the answer, i know that i am doing the same by posting this, but i feel like somone should say somthing this is crazg
I have had red blotches on my stomach for a year or two. I noticed them getting worse so I threw some tea-tree oil on then and they basically faded overnight. That stuff is amaizing on alot of stuff. Thought I would share I dont know where my spots came from but the oil takes care of them. Give it a try and lemme know if it works for you.
I am 16 years old and I have 5 blotches on my body. 3 on the left side of my stomach, 1 on the right, and one on my left breast. They are about the size of four computer keys put together. They are not itchy or sore. When they first appeared they were raised but they are not raised any more. The strange thing about it is, in the morning they are 100% visible and throught the day they fade, but are still visible. I have been reading other comments and some people have said that they go away in about 6 weeks. I have had mine for almost 5 months. If anybody finds out what they are please post it, I am a very nervouse person.
Wow, this site is amazing! I was starting to freak out when the spots appeared on my stomach and after 2 weeks didn't go away. I tried rubbing alcohol, neosporin, anti fungal spray, etc. The original spots, that appeared in a group of 15+ began to fade, but more appeared over time. I am going to try tea tree oil, which is the best for acne and apple cider vinegar which was mentioned before. I too was very sick is a viral something, sore throat, fever, etc but that was over a month ago, weird if it has anything to do with the bumps. The dr said it looked like a surface skin irritation, but after reading the posts, I believe it is Pityriasis Rosea.
If anyone finds anything cures, PLEASE post! Thank you!
I have something like that it's red spots on my lower stomach my lower chest and one or two below my under arm and I had them for a week or two and im only 11 but this is his mother he told me to write this line.
im 16 and just noticed 2 of them on my stomach about 2 cm across and 1 cm up. i got 1 on my right hip as well. If they get itchy or anything im going to see a doctor so if i find out anything i'll let you guys know.
ok I have this too and it is called Pityriasis Rosea, I have found that sitting in the sun gets rid of them or at least hides them a little, there is really nothing you can do someone if it look like what you are trying to describe then there you go, if not well at least i tried to help, ) good luck, it is very common though as you can see, just use oatmeal wash and if your in an area where there isnt much sun get some vitamin d oil or drink some 2% or whole milk, vitamin d is great forr your skin so try it it should help.
