Just recently I've had extremely itchy feet and rash on my legs. itch to the point where it hurts.Tried cotisone & calimine lotion nothing. Any ideas?
Ok...I have one that is sure to stump you. For over a month I have had a case of itchy feet. The tops of my feet get wrinkly (with or without my itching them). They are not hives, but appear to be like when you get a print after sitting on the carpet. Only on the tops of my feet, but today the "wrinkles" seem to spread up my ankles and legs. The itchiness also sometimes affects my hands. But only my feet and hands.
I will use anything to stop the itching (finger nails, stiff brushes, chair legs, door jambs, anything hard) and usually break the skin from scratching too hard. Even at that point the itching remains and I can't stop scratching. This happens about every 5-6 days. The itch comes on slowly. I can feel a slight sensation a day or too before it it gets to the point it's intolerable. If I touch the area at this time it seems to speed up the the itching intensity.
It started as Pins and Needles in the soles of my feet,after a couple of hours,it has extended to my lower legs. It leaves me very uncomfortable because I cant scratch and the itch is amazingly irritating..I find myself in a dilemma cos about a month ago i had sex with a lady and the condom broke, since then I have not been myself,mainly cos am scared of contracting HIV..
The skin of a patient with atopic dermatitis reacts abnormally and easily to irritants, food, and environmental allergens and becomes red, flaky and very itchy. It also becomes vulnerable to surface infections caused by bacteria. The skin on the flexural surfaces of the joints (for example inner sides of elbows and knees) are the most commonly affected regions in people.
Also, preserve those natural oils by scrubbing with soap only in the spots you really need it, like your underarms, feet, and groin. Because your legs, back, and arms don't usually get very dirty, skip the soap and stick to a warm-water wash for these areas. Use a gentle soap: Scented, antibacterial, or deodorant soaps can be harsh, removing your body's essential oils, leaving skin even more itchy and dry. Instead, reach for an unscented or lightly scented bar.
Im glad Im not the only one with "itchy" legs. I have had "itchy" legs for years. I have been told it was all in my head. And have tired almost everything for dry itchy skin. Its mostly my lower legs, the front and side. Sometimes its my upper leg. When they itch, it feels like they are itchy from the bones. I end up itching them so much that I tear my legs open, and usually get a faint scar. They seem dry usually, but are as smooth and soft as my hands are.
You use a firm, natural bristle brush and brush you whole body starting at the feet and working towards the heart in long firm strokes. This should be done on dry skin. It's not the same as using a firm brush or loolfah in the shower. It must be done on dry skin (it helps cellulite too!
My legs have been itchy every day since i was born. im 21 and i have always had itchy legs. when i was younger my family would all scream at me as once i started i couldnt seem to stop. the itching gets so bad that it annoys you and fustrates you and it becomes painfull. My dad used to smack my legs where it was itching and it used to help but it didnt last too long only for about 5-10 mins and i would be scratching again.
Sometimes out of the blue my feet and calves start burning and itching like crazy and you can see kind of a blotchy skin like red and white blotches. It used to happen when I was washing dishes or came out of the shower so I thought maybe the water was making it like that.
Yes my feet have been sweaty and itchy also. Its from swelling and incteased blood flow.
When I was in the hospital they would constantly come in and check my feet for swelling and it was in order to watch if I might start having kidney problems. I don't know why they would be hot, mine are usually freezing. Autoimmune stuff affects everyone differently. You said you have leg weakness and that is part of autoimmune and or fibro. Get your rest but if you can also get a little bit of exercise.
Everytime i go and spend the night at my boyfiends house, i wake up, with a certain area on my ankle and arm that is very itchy and once i start scratching , it seems as it just speads throughout my arm and legs, but never on the same spot twice. What could this be? I keep debating if it is scabies or hive. I have eaten shrimp before this happens.
I have a rash on top of my feet and legs and the top of my feet are incredibly itchy. My daughter just had 5ths disease, but I was told that is rare in adults. Does anyone know what I could have?
I have the same thing but mine started out on my thigh then to my lower leg them my feet. I have it on both legs and feet. Now it is moveing to my belly. It has been worrying me b/c my doctor doesn't even know what it is. Mine doesn't itch that much but they do burn when I take a bath. At first the doc said it was stasis dermatitis. But the meds she put me on didn't help. But I would like some help. They start off like blood spots and then into like bites.
I have it supposedly because of diabetes since it was really bad at the time of diagnosis of diabetes but then again I have had very sensitive feet and legs since I was a kid so not really sure what is causing it, I am sure the diabetes is making it worse now but they are finding out more and more causes of nerve diseases. Sad thing for me is I handled aluminum trays for many years at a place I worked at too so there are many counts against me for this silent but painful problem.
I am getting really bad red and white bumps on my ankles and they are like in groups but now its going up my legs and around my waist line. It also feels like there is bugs crawling all over me. I really can't get any sleep. I have a cat she does have fleas I have treated her and the house and still is..but I am the only one in the house getting bit and feel like this! Does anyone know what this could be?? If so please say...Thank You!!
//www.medhelp.org/posts/Dermatology/I-found-a-cure-for-my-itchy-legs/show/997405 I've now tried scrubbing with a shower schrunchie / loofa sponge (with soap), not too hard, but aggressively.. and then after showering, I dried my legs quite aggressively with my towel.. and there was no itching at all! This is huge progress for me, and will let you all know if it works! I recommend trying this.. Trevor Right..
For the last few years I have been tearing skin off my legs and drawing blood sometimes when the itching getts too bad. My doctor doesn't have a clue and rarely lifts his head up to see the problem. On the top of my feet and around my anckles I have big clusters of what look like freckles but are not. The itching seems to run from just above the anckle up to my inner thigh. I have tried loads of creams and pills etc but it just keeps itching. I have been told it could be bad circulation.
my subject is about my Swollen Fingers and Itchy Feet?? After about an hour after I wake up in the morning and get into my daily routine I have noticed that my feet begin to itch really bad. I looked at them and they do not have a rash or any signs of something wrong with them. After that my fingers begin to swell and it is nearly impossible to make a fist. It hurts but slowly goes away. I know it's winter and I thought it might be the cold but I wasn't outside when it started.
my legs, arms, feet, stomach, boobs, fingers, toes, etc., and it drives me crazy! Anyone else have/had this problem? Suggestions on how to ease it, get rid of it, what it is? Please help!!
I have chronically unbearable itchy legs, from upper thigh to ankle, excluding my knee cap. The itching is very persistent to the point that I'm scratching so much I break skin and have bruising. It's been 2 years since its started and its not let up for even a day. When it originally started I had no visible irritation, until after I scratched, and all it was, was very small raised bumps the same color as my skin. Now my skin is visibly irritated due to scratching.
got put in predinsone about finished it and feeling a little bit better i also had itchy bumps on my legs and itchy on top of my feet help
and have had itchy legs AND hands since then and still today (in college). I started using Benadryl pills this year and I 'think' they work (I'm a science major, and I haven't been able to really test this as I would like).
