    Skin Problems - Slideshow
    Susan Evans, MD posted:
    Because so many members are asking questions about skin rashes and irritations, I'm directing you to this slideshow to help you decide if you need to go see your doctor.

    There are many reasons for skin rashes and irritations, ranging from contact dermatitis to shingles and psoriasis.

    Some skin rashes will go away when treated symptomatically. Other skin rashes are a sign of a more serious condition and should be evaluated by a doctor sooner than later.

    Dear Susan,

    I had a hytarectomy at the end of July 2010 by September I was starting to itch around my pubic hairline but now my hands, buttox, legs and arms are itching too small red bumps. some have little water blisters in them the ones on my hands. I am having severe hot flashes and night sweats. Please help going crazy.

    my son has bumps on his elbow only. they don't look like any of those pictures on the slide show. the bumps have no color and are not irritated. they do not itch either. They are just a cluster of rounded bumps. they are not sharp or prickly. any ideas would be great. they're are covering the area of one entire elbow. quiet a few.
