    I have itchy red bumps on my stomach, breasts, arms, legs, and neck. What could these possibly be?

    These itchy bumps are pretty random. Sometimes they pop up alone and sometimes in little groups. They are very itchy. As I said, they are on my stomach, back, breasts, upper arms and upper legs, and my neck. These bumps are driving me crazy! Help!

    I have the same thing going on with me. Extremely itchy and irritating.I went to the ER after about a week of dealing with it. They diagnosed me with pitarysis rosea. It is a viral infection that lasts for 4-6 weeks and goes away by itself. It is not contagious and not harmful. I am not 100% sure that the diagnosis was accurate because I do not have a Herald patch(a large red circular rash on trunk area that the rash starts as), but I do have several round rash areas on my thigh along with a sprinkle of rash all over. All I know is it is driving me nuts and it gets worse daily as new spots form. Hope this helped you. READ MORE

    Might be bed bugs.  They are on the rise.  Have you traveled anywhere lately? Live in an Apartment complex? I hope for your sake they are not :-( READ MORE

    This seems to be soap related it takes time for the allergen to get into your skin and then takes a long time to get out! I have found that using a hypoallergenic soap will aleve this over time! Takes about a month for the irritant to get out of your system! The itching is insane and heat and sweat make it worse. Waking up to scratch from a deep sleep is common and once you start your in trouble. A benadryl anti itch cream helps a little as does the calamine lotion. But washing the affected area with cold water helps me the most. Stay away from smell good soaps and dial!

    Simple is best! Seems we as a people are becoming reactive to the ingredients used in soap! Hopefully the makers will take notice till then we will ALL suffer!

    My Dermotologist had me take Cortazone pills for 4 days and apply an ointment called Triamcinolone Acetonide twice a day.  The pills stopped the itch within a day and the ointment had to be applied for several weeks.  Don't put hot water on the spots, it agrivates it.  Wash with warm water and soap before applying the ointment.  It worked for me, but takes several weeks to get rid of it.

    I may have the answer to your problem those could be heat bumps witch are red tiny bumps that usually occur when you get hot, sweaty or if a little child is hot at night it's not a problem at all you don't need no cure I have those now I only get them in the summer time when it's really hot you don't need to be worried stay calm there not dangerous at all if you want them to go away try to keep cool for a week and they'll be gone READ MORE
