my girl friend woke up this morning and had these little bumps/red rash on her thigh. i took a couple close up pics. she says its a little bit itchy, but hasn't scratched it. she has a routine doctors checkup on monday, but in the meantime does anyone have any insight?

  • Thank you! I have been trying to figure out what this is!!! Please, if anyone knows, share! I had a couple of them on my arm, didn't scratch them open, then the spread all over my arm overnight. Now I am finding them on my legs and torso! They itch and look terrible. Possibly an allergic reaction to wheat or a detergent??? I'm cutting out wheat for a few days to see what happens.

  • For me, I found the problem. I have a swimming pool where I live and I am in it a lot because I swim for exercise. Well, they changed up the chemicals in the pool, and even though I waited a few days to go back in, what seems to have happened is, because it is hot out and the water is now warm in the pool, there is a certain bacteria that is normally found in whirlpools that can cause a rash that resembles the chicken pox. I think that combined with the new chemicals is my problem. The little blisters definitely look like chicken pox and spread for a while. Now they seem to be diminishing. Glad it isn't serious! I was really thinking it was a gluten intolerance issue causing the rash. I am staying away from the pool until they are gone and rubbing on isopropyl alcohol, not too much, which seems to help dry the blisters out. I hope that helps someone out!
