My 9 month old has a red blochy rash that doesn t itch nor does it seem to cause pain and no fever is present. It completely disapears at night but within 1 hour of being awake, it comes back. It is present on his face, arms, and legs really bad. He weighs 29 pounds and is 29 1/2 in tall. He has never been diagnosed with allergies of any kind or had an abnormal birth.

Hi, For a while now I keep getting a red blotchy rash all over my chest. It only seems to occur when I eat hot food, I get nervous in a situation like interview for instance or if I drink alcohol but sometimes if I just change environment it can occur. It flares up for about 20 minutes then goes away. Are there any treatments I can take for this as it is really affecting me now. Thank you Alice

I was sitting on my couch when I felt my leg sting. I thought that it was nothing but then the stinging got worse. I got up and checked my couch for a bug/insect but I didn t find anything. I looked at my leg and saw that there was a big red (kind of red and blotchy) area. I couldn t find anything in my leg though (like a stinger). So I used a flashlight and a magnifier glass and I still can t see anything, but when I lightly swipe over the red area with my hand I can feel a small part of my leg stinging.. Am I going crazy or do you think I was stung by something, if so what do I do?
