I have two slightly raised large red bumps a little above my eyebrows. They are dime sized, and itch like crazy! They look sort of like oversized mosquito bites on my face, but they aren't. They've been there for three weeks, and I also have sensitive skin. I use an astringent acne cleanser on my face, but it has never bothered my face before. I'm not sure if they are part of a rash or not. Also, if it helps, I have been waking up in the morning the last couple of weeks with a red rash on my neck and chest that itches terribly, but usually goes away after an hour or so after my shower. Please help!
The symptoms are suggestive of hives. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. Apply calamine lotion or some mild steroid cream and also give some Benadryl( causes drowsiness) and Claritin. If the symptoms persist then a dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best.
If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist and get scabies ruled out.
I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted on how you are doing. Warm regards.
