Customer Question
I have a rash on...
I have a rash on my back and shoulders. That appears and disappears it also appears on my neck and my face and rapidly disappears but recently it hasn't quite disappeared from my back or my shoulders. Their small flesh tone raised bumps. Sometimes there just in small clusters or sometimes they take over the whole shoulder or at least half of the back. What could this be? Should I go to an urgent care?

Hello
Not a reason for urgent care at all.
Looks like an allergic response, or even a form of acne.
I would try soap scrubs today.
See your doctor tomorrow.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
