small bumps on midsection
I started getting a couple small bumps, resembling small pimples or flea bites.  Initially i thought it was form just being in the woods, but they are increasing more and more around my midsection(stomach and lower back).  They are kind of pink but definelty not red unless i scrath them,  They are extremely itchy but can't figure out what they could be.  Nothing seems to be making them go away.

Any ideas?

Hi

Small red or pinkish bumps may have folliculitis, dermatitis and fungal infections as differentials. Folliculitis is a bacterial skin infection and may be transmitted through direct skin to skin contact. They may appear as reddish bumps with pus filled centers. They may be tender to the touch. I suggest that you apply Mupirocin antibacterial cream thinly over the area and see if the affected skin improves. You may apply twice daily for 3 days. If this does not improve, have this assessed further. Observe frequent hand washing. Keep the area dry and clean. Also avoid wearing tight underpants or shorts.
