I seem to be having an allergic reaction to something--unsure if the water, food, soap. I m reacting on my skin. I get super prickly-itchy , mainly on my torso but also on my neck, upper legs, upper buttocks, arms. and jawline. The sensation lasts about 10-15 mins, then subsides. Sometimes 2-3 or more times per day. I also get really small bumps. Should I see a dermatologist or an allergist?

Hi, my boyfriend is a painter and 3 days ago acquired large red pimple like bumps on his upper legs and buttocks . After the first day he took Benadryl and used hydrocortisone cream it seemed to make them go down a bit, since them only used the cream and they got worse now they are turning into whiteheads. They are itchy and painful. He has no history of rashes . Could it be something work related or an allergy?

For the past 4,5 days i have been getting really itchy, arms middle of tthighs, bum, behind knees pretty much whole body and as soon as i scratch white llumps appear, some as small as a mosqquito bite but some are a bit bigger and funny shaped and almost look like they could be popped (like a blister ) but then they go away if i stop itching for a while, red blotcches also appear near them but i think thats just from scratching . i dont have any pets and i dont think anything in my routine has changed, anny ideas on what it could be?
