I had some itchy red hard pimple on my arm and legs, after I and my boy friend had bush walk 12 days ago. I found it after when home that day. My arm and legs appears some red dots. Then next day become pimples. I did apply some cortizone cream, lyclear cream but nothing works. Pimple getting more red and larger. Slight itchy. Would you give me some advice? My boyfriend seems ok. He said he had a few but disappeared in two days.

Brief Answer: Itchy red lesions over exposed area Detailed Answer: Hello, As you have these itchy lesions over the exposed areas, I am suspecting insect bite allergy or contact dermatitis to some plants. You have a feature to upload the images of the rash by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your query better. You can also send the image as attachment to YYYY@YYYY , with the subject as 'Attn: Dr. Johny Chacko'. Lyclear cream will not help as the insects won't be there in your skin now. Cortizone cream has a role but as it is not helping you , you might need a stronger steroid cream. Hoping to see a picture of the rash so that I can advice better. Take care.
