How can I tell the difference between pimples and a rash?


Answer by  mjjaegly (211)

A rash tends to be red with irregular shapes bumps. These rarely have whiteheads like a pimple. A pimple tends to be larger and fluid or pus filled. They tend to be singular instead of multiple in a given area. The rash will tend to itch where a pimple won't.

Pimples cover only a small area on the body. They tend to swell. Are generally found on the face. Pimples contain a kind of seed, which if popped leaves a mark. Rashes on the other hand are burns from falls from cycling, falling or from being pushed by someone. They can be healed by using ointments.

Pimples tend to be raised with a red bump around a white pus filled head. They are most often found on the face, chest and back. Rashes come in many forms, but often are red without white raised heads. They look different than normal skin, with variations in skin texture and appearance.

Most rashes are bumpy and a little raised but not like a pimple. Also rashes will expand over a large amount of your body and just be solid reddish purple. A pimple will be separated from other pimple and have a whitish head. Pimples do not itch like many rashes do as well.
