I have persistent skin rashes. It started about three months ago on my belly, but now I have big ones...about seven of them, including the ones that spread to by back.

They ARE NOT allergies, and dermitologsts couldn't find a cause for the rashes.
I am 15 and I have no other symptoms, excpet for this cold I caught last week.

I am worried that this might be some really big disease like aids or something...
Please help and tell me what might be causing these rashes!

  • There are all kinds of rashes. It may help if you describe the rashes properly eg colour and if the rashes are all the same colour, how big, shape, fleckly looking, raised or not, do they blister if rubbed, dry rashes or weepy rashes, once you get a rash somewhere.. does it later on go or does it stay? You need to say more about these... and yes there can be serious diseases which have rashes but mst rashes are harmless. I have persistent skin rashes.

  • Have mom take you to an "infectious disease specialist"...it could be something in the "chicken pox" family and I imagine you are very low risk for hiv. What about bed bugs? More likely..
