What in the hell....

Posted , 2 users are following.

Okay, so I've had a pretty severe itchy rash for about two months now (it started when I got infected with influenza on December of last year) but It has stopped or calmed down for several days now. Today, however, I started getting this pink dots all over my body. Some of them itch, some of them hurt a bit, and some of them don't bother me at all. I have gotten five colds since December, an unbelievable amount for me, and I have recently come down with another one. What could this be? (Sorry for the possibly blurry or upside down picture) And yes, I went to a doctor, for the itchy rash, and he prescribed me Benadryl, which helped a bit.

Thank You In Advance.

    Hard to tell from just that photo. Could be folliculitis which is when the hair follicles get inflammed. It could be some type of fungus. Have you tried Hydrocortisone cream on the bumps? If that helps, it's likely some type of fungus and you should see a doctor. Not sure the colds thing is related to the rash though.

    I would also like to point out that I ate a chocalate containing peanuts....but I am not allergic to that kind of chocalate nor peanuts. Right after consuming it, though, is when I noticed the rash begin to start and spread. My father is also coming down with it.

      A peanut allergy/sensitivity would not show signs for that long, unless you kept eating peanuts with an allergy. Also, your father couldn't come down with it, if it was some type of allergic reaction. If your father is getting the bumps also, I would look in to possible fungus infections, including staph infections.

    I think fungus infections look way severe than my little problem.
