is there a standard period of time to wait for skin reactions before consulting a doctor?


Posted by andyt

I am traveling in South East Asia, specifically Thailand.  I have had a red itchy rash on my wrist for about a week...my dad and sister have very bad dry skin and I did as a child and it appears similar to that.  However, yesterday I noticed large bite looking red bumps around my underwear line and today I have tiny whit bumps on the left side of my stomach.  I am willing to wait out the wrist but the other two are of concern.... how long can/should I wait?
