You should also let us know since how long this symptom is present and do you have any history of allergy?The diagnosis would depend on the location , type, size of visible rash (if any), presence of any other associated symptoms and signs like fever. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene and avoid using any cosmetic products. You may try calamine lotion locally which has a soothing effect.

A rash recently developed on my sons legs 13 years old in an isolated pattern. The rash appears to be 2" above his knees and then down to just above his shoe line. The areas are red and appear to be taunt/tight. Their is no oozing or head to the bump, howver it does appear to be raised 1/8", circular in shape and mainly on the front and sides and very little on the back or calf area. I would describe it as appearing to be a lot of mosquito bites.
I have had a somewhat kind of rash or bites on my legs for the last month. The strange is that the rash only apears at night or is mostly itchy at around 1 or 2 a.m. It is so intense it wakes me out of a deep sleep. I am married and my husband had itchy ankles before I started with my symptoms. His rash (which did not look like my rash) and itching has since stopped. I've been to the dermatologist but he did not take a scraping since the spots were not juicy (ughhh!

I have tiny red rashes on my arms, hands and legs. I have been sufering from this 6 days ago and i didnt bite by any insects. The symptoms are - not itchy and not painful - a bit bumpy and not localised. - no blister and no yellowish. - No sore throat, no fever. - My body is itching (For sure, its not caused by rash and my body have started itching last 10 days ago). FYI, I have very small blisters on my face. I thought it was pimple and I pinched it out and only fluid come out.
Hard to say what the root cause is. Could be environmental- exposure to cleaning product, pesticide on lawn. Most allergies are food related, and allergies can develop spontaneously- so perhaps you could try changing to a food with limited ingredients, (less ingredients, less things to be allergic to). I know the **** Van Patten brand (at Petco) has a limited ingredients line of food for allergy dogs.
i'm 26 weeks pregnant and have a rash on my arms, legs and back.
She began the meds on Monday morning, and by Tuesday evening she had 3 starburst, silver dollar sized rashes on her legs -- 2 on one leg, 1 on another. She also complained of a very sore tongue. Her MD advised her to stop Bactrim, and by Friday's follow-up, they had diminished only slightly. The MDs in the office had no idea what this was, and stated it was atypical reaction to Bactrim so they were concerned with an infection.
My 13 month old son has a rash on his hands, feet, & legs, I tried to look in his mouth and didn't see anything, but couldn't keep his mouth open long..

I have a rash or bug bites on my feet and lower legs, thought they might be flea bites, but now I have a rash also on my right buttock my friend said that it looked like bug bites that I had itched. I have tried hydrocortisone, lanacane 3, blue star ointment, calamine lotion and now I am trying Nystatin, that seems to really take the itching away.

Hello, From the symptoms they look like hives. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications.

About 2 months ago, after swimming at the YWCA, I developed a rash on my back and on the buttocks, and down the back of my legs. I went to my Dr, who put me on an antibiotic and prednisone. Within a week, it cleared some but never really went away, and yes, it was itchy. A month or so later, the rash came back, and I was put on prednisone again plus a cream. It cleared up. Now it's back again. I am suppose to have knee replacement surgery in a few days. What could this be?
I have been to an internal medicine, Derm, and allergist and no one can figure out what is going on with me. I had an outbreak of a pimple/blister like rash all over my arm and legs. I was put on a heavy dose of prednisone starting at 40mg then 60mg next round, steroid cream, benadryl, sarin lotion. Finally after months it went away. It now is back and on my neck and spreading on my cheeck and chest. Im going through the whole routine again but nothing is helping.
Most often, heat rash goes away on its own. Severe forms of heat rash may need medical care, but the best way to relieve symptoms is to cool your skin and prevent sweating. Keep the affected area dry. Dusting powder may be used to increase comfort.

The rash looked as if somebody would have taken a paint brush and flicked it, kind of blotchy, on the inside of arms back and on my hip, some on my legs, basically where i had my shorts and t-shirt on. I began to worry when it stuck around for a few days, ive had contact derm before, non-itchy but went away in 24 hours, my question is, could this have been from that night of sex? could the rash be an std? ARS rash?

From what I understood, the people who get the rash usually get it early on in tx. That it is some kind of allergy to the meds. My question is this, could it be from the Riba, or possibly the Prevacid that my Dr gave me last week. I read the sx's of Prevacid, and it states rash as possible sx. I stop using it yesterday, but the rash does seem to be spreading. What remedies you all have for it? What has your Dr's Rx'ed you for rash, and does it go away?

I have had the numbness, the terrible headaches, the confusion, virtigo, and now a rash or hives. Looks like welts with little blisters on my legs and arms. I am so frightened. I thought all this is just in my mind. I'll laugh, then I'll cry. I even think I am imagining all these symptoms. It appears by this discussion forum, that I could be sane after all. but, that's doesn't help my fear any.
Hi, The rash appeared prior to intake of amoxicillin? Is this correct? And the hives developed after amoxicillin use? Have you stopped giving her amoxicillin?
