Hi, my partner has red lumps on her body in various locations, arms,legs stomach and back, they started out as a few here and there and have been getting worse, i have searched on the internet everywhere and the symptoms suggest chicken pox but without the itch.
I have read it could be shingles but from what i have read you cant get shingles without having had chicken pox and she has never had that, so thats ruled out.

The lumps start out as small red bumps,then turn to blisters or pimple like lumps then scab over and take quite a while to heal, we have been to the doctor and he suspects a Staph infection and she was placed on antibiotics for a staph infection and has finished the course and nothing has changed. im very concerned and was wondering if anyone else has every had anything like this???

Please Help

  • i worked out at the gym and went directly to get my hair colored. broke out in the same fashion you've described. it's been about two weeks and only getting worse. did she have her hair dyed near the time it started? i mention the gym because of the sweat/pores maybe having something to do with it.
