Hi Arisman,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

There are many causes for the appearance of a reddish rash that feels itchy on the skin, ranging from infection, insect bites, dermatitis, and so on. Each of these conditions certainly has a different treatment. In order to differentiate between them, a physical examination by a doctor is required.

One of the most common causes of itching and red bumps on the skin is insect bites. In this case, apart from the bumps, you can also find bite marks on your skin. The itching from insect bites can be intense enough to make you feel hot and want to keep scratching. If left untreated, this condition can cause your skin to become irritated and cause a secondary infection, which will slow down the healing process.

In addition to insect bites, some other possible causes of itching and red bumps that you experience are:

Infections, such as due to: folliculitis miliaria tinea versicolor varicella scabies impetigo Irritant contact dermatitis Atopic dermatitis Drug eruptions Allergic contact dermatitis, etc. Need to clarify again, what are the characteristics of the bumps you are experiencing? Where is the exact location? How many? And are there any other complaints that come with it?

It's best if you go directly to the doctor for further evaluation. If necessary, the doctor may refer you to a dermatologist and genital specialist for further management.

In the meantime, avoid excessive scratching of the itchy skin, especially forcibly exfoliating the bumps. Always keep yourself clean by taking regular showers, washing your hands, and shortening your nails. Avoid exchanging clothes or towels with other people to minimize the risk of contracting or transmitting the disease. If you have a history of allergies, try to avoid the triggers as much as possible. To reduce itching, you can sprinkle salicylic powder or apply calamine lotion on itchy skin (avoid contact with mouth, eyes, or genitals).

Hope it helps ya..
