Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello from JustAnswer.
Could you attach a picture of the rash, preferably a high resolution image that will allow zooming?
Have you tried anything to treat the rash?
Thank you for the additional information.
The appearance on the images clearly does not look like scabies. The characteristic appearance of scabies involves the identification of burrows in the skin. The mite that causes scabies will travel or burrow under the skin, so that there are small lines that radiate from the bumps. The burrows may be few in number or be obscured if the patient scratches the area. However, I clearly do not see any burrows in any of these pictures.
Have you noticed any lines or burrows radiating from any of the bumps?
If so, can you attach a picture of that area?
It is fine to attach some pictures later today and we can wait to make final comments until I can review those pictures. If I have stepped away from the computer, I wll be back online later today and will respond when I am back online.
However, some other comments regarding this information:
Scabies is very common in certain countries, but is only moderately common in the US.
Eczema is much more common, but the term, eczema, actually refers to several different causes of inflammation in the skin. Some of these can arise suddenly, particularly when there is inflammation of the skin in response to substances with which you have come in contact.
I will look for the additional pictures later today.
I have been looking for additional pictures and have not received them.
The pictures that you have provided thus far certainly do not have the appearance of scabies or any other contagious illness.
If I can provide any further assistance, please let me know.
