Hello, 

For some time annoys me itching, and today I noticed the suspicious bubbles on the chest (quite small and only a few). I wonder if it's scabies or some allergy. 

Please help.

    Hi Peterpeter

    It appears that it is going into a secondary infection.  I'd go and get a topical antibiotic or oral whichever the doctor advises.  Infections can go into cellulitis which is not pleasant and could become worse extremely fast.  Please have your doctor or at the very least, your pharmacist check it out as they have also seen these types of "rashes" or whatever it may be.  They might suggest something topical and a doctor may not need to be seen.  In any case, do take care

    Could be dermatitis?? - this looks similar to what i sometimes get on my neck or tops of shoulders. Usually made worse by sweat (gym) hot water (shower) dry air (winter /central heating) and is made worse by rubbing or itching. Mine started out of the blue and I didn't know what it was at first. When really bad I used hydrocortisone cream, but you could try savlon (all the other creams, E45 etc) didn't seem to help me.

    who knows - go to doctor. my daughter was covered in rash and the dermatologist specialist GP didn't know what it was and we were given scabies treatment as first precaution. didn't do any harm and meant that it was ruled out when it didn't do anything to improve it.
