Please I need some solid info. I dont want to hear "get tested its the only way to know". Please help anyone with knowledge.
But I've tried many different types of anti-itch creams and nothing seems to work and now it's starting to keep me up late at night because the skin itches so much. The skin on my elbows doesn't seem to have the blisters, it's just dry and itchy. Please I just really want to know of an idea of what this could be, and if anyone has any ideas of how to decrease the amount of itchyness that would be great too. Thanks.
I've tried lotion in case it was just dry skin, and benadryl gel since I use that on my bug bites anyway, and neither of them help. But I can't figure out why they itch so bad. I've never had this problem before. Any ideas why this area in particular, on both arms, would be so itchy?
It started out as a dry skin, scaly, and painful patch between the fingers of my left hand. It was not itchy then, but was painful when the skin dried and fell off, exposing painful cracks and raw skin underneath. I seemed to have developed very dry hands and that did seem to aggravate the problem and seemed to cause it to spread. I did go to a dermatologist and was told to use lotions like Cetaphil and the like, very purish lotions w/o other ingredients that may make the symptoms worse.
Hello, My teen daughter has formed these white, under the skin white bumps all over her elbows, some are red.... any one know what these could be? She suffers from several skin "things" but this doesn't look like any of the other stuff. IE; shingles, hives or eczema.
I am just getting over broncitus. I have never had any allergies or dry skin. It is very iritating. I have been taking Benadryl allergy & rubbing cortizone 10 on it but it has not really been helping out. Any suggestions would help.
The extra weight on the elbows tends to dry the skin more and also different detergents and materials can also irritate the skin. Stay with just cotton clothing and hydrocotisone. I know its a habit, but tell her not to rest on the elbows while listening in school. My son does that to stay focused.
My problem is that about three months ago, I broke out with these bumps on my elbows, and they would pop, but it quickly got out of control and spread, some of them would mesh together and they become extremely easy to pop, like a blister, this then spread to my hands. Keep in mind, these are NOT scaly, NOT leathery. I went to the emergency room because it got so bad, the doctor said it was cellulitis, and prescribed me antibiotics.
I also forgot to mention that my right nipple was also very dry, itchy, and also cracked like dry skin.
Its almost like it exaggerates my sense of touch to an unreasonable level. They don't make my skin dry and they don't itch. In general, when pressure is applied to them, it feels like I am being pricked with several tiny needles. I first got them when I was about 12 years old. The doctor said it was hand, foot and mouth. But I am now 21 and find it hard to believe that I have gotten hand, foot, and mouth over 10 times.
The itchiness is all over my legs and ankles and up on the insides of my legs as well. Also, the skin on my elbows is so cracked and dry it hurts to touch. I have tried several lotions several times a day and cannot get any moisture in. This dryness is on my forehead as well, but is not as bad, my forehead flakes when I rub it. My father has eczema, I wasn't sure if there was any kind of inheritance that could be involved.
I have very dry skin around the area of my butthole. It is so dry, that it bleeds on occasion and itches like crazy. I have gone to the Dr. before and have been prescribed creams and pills etc, but no luck. I have taken an over the counter liquid for pinworms (I know, gross) but that did not work either. Does anyone else have this issue and what have you done to clear it up? It is mainly during the evening and night time hours when I am asleep that it happens the worst. HELP!
Sounds like riba rash and dry skin gone wild, both common side effects. Seems like lots of people are afflicted with skin problems, often early in tx. People get rashes and blisters and bumps and such and people have complained of getting some/all of the above in or on nearly every body part you can imagine. I use lots of Yardley Secret Cottage natural almond oatmeal moisturizing lotion for my skin issues. Other people swear by Gold Bond products.
I am a 24 yr old female and I've never had a problem with any kind of rashes or other skin problems. I normally have pretty healthy skin besides a pimple or two on my face every once in a while. Anyway, About 7 days ago I noticed small red dots that I thought were mosquito bites on both outer elbows. A few days later, they got bigger and expanded, leaving a raised, red, EXTREMELY itchy rash. The rash is not dry or flaky and does not have any excretion or leakage.
-A couple of months ago I noticed a patch of red irritated skin with bumps on my thigh. I figured it was the rivet in a pair of jeans I have rubbing against my skin. I put a band-aid on it and it seem to get better. -A week or so ago my hands got super dry and were peeling and looked like I had been in the water all the time. I bought moisturizer and gloves and the problem went away. -About the same time the red spot on my thigh start to seem to spread.
This is my 2nd time on treatment, I've got this tip to share, it sounded crazy but it works, head and shouders shampoo as a body wash, it takes care of the dry skin and I rarely need extra lotion.
They appeared on both left and right elbows at same time about a week ago. The bumps look skin-colored, almost like blisters or mosquito bites, but can look pinkish-red after itching or after I apply lotion. I went to a doctor (not a dermatologist mind you) and she quickly said it could be psoriasis, and to just keep them moisturized.
After the first year I started to get lesions/dry skin on my elbows and belly button. Last summer I spent in spain and was given Centrizine for it by a chemist, after a week the symptoms were suppressed but would return slightly if I stopped taking it. I also believe the sun and sea helped alot.I have returned to london and the symptoms are back except for the lesions as of yet. I have been taking the Centrizine but it is not effective anymore. Can anyone help with this?
cetrizine hydrochloride As I am getting side effects I stopped taking any drugs.The major problem I faced is formation of dry and peeling skin started in front of my low legs and spreading alover the leg and started at elbow and spreaded through out hands.
Okay, so usually in winter time, my skin (like my legs and feet) can get a little dry at times. But no big deal really, I get some lotion and I am good to go! But now that I am pregnant....I just want to scratch my legs off!!!!!! lol. This is REALLY bad. Nothing is working too well. It will work for a little while, but comes back and still itches really bad. Just under my elbows is really dry as well. (that never happens) Is it mostly pregnancy related?
I just happened across your post while looking for something else, and I am wondering if maybe you have something like a yeast infection. My husband had similar symptoms a while back. I had some OTC Monistat cream left over from a previous yeast infection, so he tried it for several days. The itching, irritation, redness and dryness were gone withing a week. Just be aware that the yeast infection cream may sting when first applied.
I have developed patches of thick, scaly, hard, dry skin on the outside of both feet just on and below the ankle bone, maybe 1" x 3" areas. The patches are not discolored except for white striations from dryness. No cream or lotion or oil I have used on it shows any discernable improvement. Pumice stone didn't help much either. Can you suggest a name for such a condition? A treatment?
I have a dry, itchy white patch on my scrotum and very intensely itchy and puffy foreskin There was a white patch of dry itchy skin about 2 cm in length and width on penile shaft which turned into a moist patch of skin which oozes clear fluid. I also have skin rash on my elbows and abdominal area with severe itching. I would like to know what the issue is and what I can do to resolve it.
So today I noticed his arms are covered with tiny hard bumps, flesh colored, maybe a little lighter, with very large ones on both elbows. I also noted them on bilateral lower legs and a few on his knees. They are nonpruritic, and not red. Also noted is a small area on top of the left foot that has a tiny dark spot in the center and a little red around that and maybe a ring around the lesion and it is dry and nonpruritic.....I cant find anything online that describes this.
I know a girl who has psoriasis and it does NOT look like that. My skin isn't scaly, cracking, peeling, ect. Although, my elbows and hands are quite dry, I have been trying to take care of that better. Any advice on what I should do? Please help! Thanks!
It sounds to me as though you are describing the typical pattern of eczema. This shows itself as patches of dry itchy skin which respond to cortisone creams like a one you're using, but reappear nearby. It's tempting to look for reasons-soap, detergent, stress, food, and so on-but the connection never really works. As long as you can make the spots go way with Temovate, that's what you should do (except on the face, where Temovate is too strong.
