I have a circular red bumpy itchy patch of skin that just appeared on my stomach a few days ago. There is only one and it doesn t appear to be spreading at the present time. Can you tell me what it might be and if there are any over the counter remedies that I could purchase? I am 61, 5 3 and about 125 lbs. I don t have a medical history because I have always been a very healthy person. I have been under a fair amount of stress as of late but I m not the stressed out kind of person either so I don t know if that could have anything to do with this irritant. Thank you

my daughter is 3 years old, soon to be 4. Tonight when I was putting her to bed, I noticed small bumps on the outer side of her palms, almost to the outer side of her hand. It wasn t there earlier today and I m not sure what could be causing it. I have dermatitis on the palm off my right had, so I asked if the bumps were itchy, and she said no. So, what could be causing this. She has no other symptoms, so I m stunned.
