I have red raised rashes which are itchy I noticed one at 12PM yesterday (Saturday) which is on the inner left elbow not big like a an insect bite as the day progressed I had noticed one on the right foot and inner right knee one on the left foot and one on the right fore arm anterior and right upper arm posterior and one close the first one on the inner elbow.
I was at a hotel on Saturday and these started to appear after I left the hotel. The only other relevant contact I have had was with a neighbors dog on Thursday night.
What do you think this is and what should I do ?

I am not able to upload a photo if you can show me some the way I described them I can choose one
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Can you give an answer ?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Thank you for the confirmation.

From the history that you have provided , it does sound like papular urticaria or insect bite reaction.

I would like some more information to confirm my diagnosis:

Do the spots remain on the area or do they go away after 3 to 4 hours?

If you press them , do they blanch?

Do they itch more if warm water falls on the area?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The spots have remained in the area there have been no further rashes some get smaller they are itchy when irritated and they do not blanch when pressed they remain red yes I believe when warm water is on the area they do itch
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Thank you very much

This definitely seems to be papular urticaria.

There is no sign of psoriasis , STD , lichen planus , or any other chronic skin disease.

Application of over the counter medication like Calamine lotion and Intake of oral tablet called Claritine 10 mg once daily at night will be very helpful.

Have you taken any treatment for the same till now?

what do you think insect bite bed bugs from the hotel It was a holiday inn
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Yes , it could have been due to bed bugs. The lesions are so discrete and itchy and classically increasing in itching is seen with warm water contact.

no treatment for anything like this - they way these developed made me curious as no insects that I was aware of where near me the only factor was it stared after I left the hotel and I have never experienced this type of development of a rash.How long before they go away -should I go to a clinic ?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

There is a over the counter treatment:

It includes:

Application of over the counter medication like Calamine lotion and Intake of oral tablet called Claritine 10 mg once daily at night will be very helpful.

If it does not go away in 7 days you can go to the clinic.

They will surely respond to the above line of treatment.

Regards

The fact that it started after the hotel visit , it is mostly circumstantially related to bed bug bites

Dr Pravin

Do you Agree with what i have mentioned?
