What causes spots on the skin?

There is a spot which looks like a rash/pimple but it s very round and doesn t continue and connect to others it s on its own and it has a dark red/brown/black spot right in the centre. Some are itchy, but most are not. I had this before and it was all over my back and legs and stomach. But it was one different spots on its own. I know for a fact it isn t the chicken pox because I have had that before, or hives (looks nothing like it). It s not like a regular rash either or pimples at that fact. What is this? What can I do to prevent it from happening again? What may be causing it? Thank you!

Hi,

It may be lichen urticatus. It is due to hypersensitivity to insects. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to keep yourself away from insects. Apply mild steroid cream on the lesions. Take antihistaminics like Cetirizine daily.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi for a week now I have suffered from an itchy rash which is situated wherever my glands are i.e around the neck, armpits, groin and then the stomach area; and as the week has gone by it has become worse, spread and become painful. Only my gland on my neck is swollen but that has improved. I don t have a fever and I feel fine... so this is what is confusing. The past month I did have the flu, dont know if that has anything to do with it as I did take antibiotics, can you maybe help me?

My daughter is 11 months and have a diaper rash due to her thrash. Her doctor prescribed her nystatin for her mouth and rash, but only her mouth is getting better. She has been on the medicine for 7 days. I have tried everything from washing the area with warm water and no soap, patting it dry , letting her wear no diaper and putting on every ointment every change. Is there a stronger ointment? What should I do?
