If you have yellow or white bumps that look like pimples on your feet, this may be caused by whiteheads, skin abscess, or cysts.
Eczema on the feet is called dyshidrotic eczema. The symptoms are painful, itchy blisters; redness; flaking; and a cracked or scaly appearance. Eczema may be due to pollen, stress, excessive sweating, or exposure to water. Some people who are allergic to nickel, cobalt or chromium salts may develop dyshidrotic eczema.
Milia look like small white bumps on the cheeks, chin, or nose. They can also be on the body, especially the trunk and limbs. A similar condition called Epstein pearls is marked by milia on your gums or the roof of the mouth.
What is dyshidrotic eczema? If small itchy bumps filled with liquid appear on the bottom of your foot, this is probably what you’ve got. The cause of dyshidrotic eczema is uncertain; the condition may be allergic and/or stress-related. Corticosteroid ointments and antihistamines are helpful, as is stress reduction.
Stress rashes often appear as raised red bumps called hives. They can affect any part of the body, but often a stress rash is on the face, neck, chest or arms. Hives may range from tiny dots to large welts and may form in clusters. They may be itchy or cause a burning or tingling sensation.
Tiny red spots called petechiae One symptom that people with leukemia might notice is tiny red spots on their skin. These pinpoints of blood are called petechiae. On light skin, these may appear as red dots. On darker skin they may be darker than the surrounding skin and less noticeable.
The scabies rash looks like blisters or pimples: pink, raised bumps with a clear top filled with fluid. Sometimes they appear in a row. Scabies can also cause gray lines on your skin along with red bumps. Your skin may have red and scaly patches.
A syringoma is a benign growth of the sweat gland. They appear as small brown, yellow, or pink 1-3 millimeter bumps (papules) that tend to occur in clusters. Syringomas typically arise around the eyes or on the neck.
Sebaceous hyperplasia is a skin condition that becomes more common with age. It’s caused when your sebaceous oil glands produce too much oil, which can be trapped under your skin and cause bumps.
Milia en plaque is an unusual condition that mostly, but not exclusively, affects middle-aged women. The milia are clumped together on a raised patch of skin, usually behind the ears, on an eyelid, or on the cheek or jaw.
Signs of Diabetic Foot Problems
If you have diabetes, your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Over time, this can damage your nerves or blood vessels. Nerve damage from diabetes can cause you to lose feeling in your feet. You may not feel a cut, a blister or a sore. Foot injuries such as these can cause ulcers and infections.
Red spots or patches can be caused by conditions or diseases such as allergies, athlete’s foot, or blisters. Be sure to monitor the spots on your feet to ensure they don’t worsen. Most causes aren’t serious and are easily treated at home.
Skin infections caused by viruses usually result in red welts or blisters that can be itchy and/or painful. Meanwhile, fungal infections usually present with a red, scaly and itchy rash with occasional pustules.
What do hives look like? Hives (medically known as urticaria) appear on the skin as wheals that are red, very itchy, smoothly elevated areas of skin often with a blanched center. They appear in varying shapes and sizes, from a few millimeters to several centimeters in diameter anywhere on the body.
Anxiety and stress can also cause a considerable amount of muscle tension in your neck. You may feel like you have a lump in the throat, while another person may feel more pressure on the sides of the neck towards the lymph nodes.
Leukemia cutis appears as red or purplish red, and it occasionally looks dark red or brown. It affects the outer skin layer, the inner skin layer, and the layer of tissue beneath the skin. The rash can involve flushed skin, plaques, and scaly lesions. It most commonly appears on the trunk, arms, and legs.
Solar purpura (say PURR-pyuh-ruh or PURR-puh-ruh) is a condition that causes one or more flat, purple bruises. It often occurs on the hands, forearms, and legs. Purpura is common in older people. It is called solar purpura because it occurs most often on areas that are exposed to the sun.
Purpura is characterized by small purple spots on the skin, typically 4-10 millimeters in diameter. Some people develop larger patches of 1 centimeter or greater. These are called ecchymoses. Sometimes the spots can appear on mucous membranes, for instance, inside the mouth.
Exposure to mites can lead to patches of small, red bumps on the skin accompanied by the following respiratory symptoms:
Oak mites are tiny, microscopic insects that live and hatch in oak trees and feed on small midget fly larvae. The oak mite bite can create large, red welts on humans, and are sometimes misdiagnosed as chigger bites.
Scabies is spread from person to person through direct skin-to-skin contact. It can also be spread by using clothing, sheets, towels or furniture that has touched an infected person’s skin. Scabies is considered an STI because it often spreads during sex.
