Hi Claraafw, thanks for the question.


It is not uncommon for someone to find a rash on the skin followed by itching for which the initial cause is unknown. The rash itself is a change in the skin due to an inflammatory process that can be in the form of spots, bumps, bumps, peeling, scaly, irritation, etc. Some of the possible causes of bumps accompanied by itching, namely:


Dermatitis, or an inflammatory reaction on the skin that can be caused by allergies/contact with certain materials or substances. In dermatitis venenata, for example, an inflammatory reaction can be triggered by insect bites

Hives or urticaria. Generally, hives are caused by an allergic reaction and can spread to other parts of the body
Skin infections, such as scabies or fungal infections
Allergy to certain drugs or food
Insect bites
Skin irritation due to the use of certain substances, etc


If the bump goes away on its own, then Clara need not worry as the rash may be caused by a less serious condition. However, if the bumps persist or are getting more and more then it needs to be explored further. Bumps or rashes on the skin have their own characteristics so doctors need to know the shape of the rash, its size and location, and whether the rash is accompanied by itching, pain, discharge of pus or not to find out the exact cause. Immediate examination plus additional investigations (such as blood tests, skin prick tests if needed) will help identify the cause of the rash.


For the time being, keep your hygiene by bathing 2x a day, avoiding the use of products that cause allergic/irritating reactions, not squeezing and scratching the bumps that arise, and consulting a doctor first before using certain medications.


May be useful.
