Suggest remedies for itchy red pimples on the arm and armpit
I have had chicken pox before, and a mild case of shingles, but these didn't burn...just really itchy.
my right armpit and chest area is much worse than my left side. I am starting to see the same pimples on my right upper thigh too. I work in a nursery/daycare, so I need to figure out if this is contagious or not.
will scratching or physical contact spread this rash?
when the pimples first appear, and when they burst the first time, they are bright red. The second time they burst, they turn a dark, purple-red and scab.
might be contact dermatitis, upload the pictures
I have gone through your query
It is difficult to comment on skin lesions without examination , so kindly upload the pictures for better understanding of the situation.
I would like to know few more information
Since when you are facing this problem?
Have recently changed detergent, body soap, ?
Have you changed the deodorant or perfume?
I would also suggest you not to take any medicines without consulting doctor. It might be contact dermatitis.
Presently I would suggest you to wash the area with cool water, wash it with mild soap like dermadew soap. You can take oral antihistamine agent like levocetirizine at night for itching.
Hope this helps
