itchy

Recently, while traveling in Uganda, Africa (about two weeks into the trip), I started waking up with red itchy hands in the morning. Also the syptoms appear with exposure to cold, and when I sweat or exercise, and the reaction spreads all over my body on occasion...and I still have them since returning home two weeks ago. I was taking Doxycycline for malaria prevention, for about 30 days, and stopped about a week ago. Reaction to the meds? Nasty tropical disease?
Not sure if this is an MS symptom or not but i get very itchy hands and feet. So bad i cannot stop scratching, this happens a few times a week and the only way to stop it is to stop scratching and it will eventually go on its own. Also getting this odd cold. frozen patch on my face, only occasionally and only lasts a few minutes but this is something that has not happened to me before.
I've tried washing them, rubbing with lotion and ice packs to try and numb the pain but nothing helps. Has anyone else experiecnced this? It's 2 in the morning so I'm debating on just waiting until morning to call my doctor, it's just so uncomfortable I don't know what to do. Anything helps.
My son is 2 1/2 years old and a little more than a week ago he started scratching his hands in the morning, I took him to the doctor when I realized his hands had red spots with little tiny marks I thought it was scabis but the doctor said maybe a reaction to a new laundry detergent that I was using and he told me to give him benadryl, I wonder how long will it take to get better, because since we went to the doctor that was on friday nothing has changed, his little hands are still red and he sc
I also get itching on the sole of my feet, palms of my hands, in between toes (no I do not have a fungal infection LOL). It can literally drive you insane! I can only thank god that it doesn't last too long. This week however, its been about 4 days and I've had enough already. I hope it's on its way out!
There is no spots, blistersor color change, but they are extremely painful and extremely itchy. I can't so much as carry something cold in my hands, walk on tile floor barefoot for even a few seconds before itch starts. Basically it's whenever they start getting cold. The pain and itch is found no where else on my body expect for the hands and feets. Any advice as to what this might be or what I can do besides the obvious of keeping them warm would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
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.It may be due to gabapentin or other medications. Take some over the counter oral antihistaminics like benadryl or Claritin,Sometimes they are required for prolonged periods.
Hi, Of late, I am experiencing itchy palms and itchy sole of the feet every morning i wake up. it aggrevates into pain at the joints of the fingers when i dip my hand into warm water while brushing. I feel like always scratching my palms and sole of the feet.There are no visilble rashes but just the itchy and paining feeling. Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
I am consistently getting non-itchy red spots on hands. A lot between fingers and on knuckles. Also on top of fingers. I'm nervous as to what this could be as I've tried googling and came across nothing quite like it. They usually only last 10-30 minutes. What could it be? I have been very stressed lately given my HIV anxiety. Please help. I know many of you think my risk was non-existant. Could this be ARS. I have never had spots like this on my hands before.
For a few months, I have been getting bumps on my fingers and palms that itch (especially in the morning). They grow to a point, then begin to harden, flake, and heal. After healing, I notice a loss of flesh / muscle at the point at which the growth occured. Each spot will last for a few weeks before healing and disappearing. It's driving me crazy. Any recomendations?
i got itchy spots on the palms of my hands, I thought it was spider bite but then i noticed red spots on my ankles and up the back of my legs. it is getting really annoying so can someone please help me out!!!
In particular I'll use the Domeboro (which can be found over the counter at a pharmacy) to soak my hands in the morning and at night after work. I'll use small amount of benedryl on the larger patches of "bubbles." I'll re-post with results if I think anything is working. Otherwise, consider me once again amongst the long list of clueless sufferers. A few other things: I eat extremely healthy and work out several times a week.
When my hands are exposed to the cold they turn red and become swollen, sore and itchy. It's very much like an allergic reaction. In fact, the first time this happened I thought it was a reaction to some soap I had used. I was outside without gloves in 34 degree weather this morning for about 20 minutes. My hands had a reaction after about 10 minutes. I've always had cold hands and feet, but this is only the second time I've had this sort of reaction. I'm a 57 year old female.
ya my hands are just chapped going to the pharmacy in the morning to see what i can get for it thanks for you response Rowena Santos.
I recently am experiencing a rash all over my body excluding my head, hands, and feet. It is puffy red spots appearing in the early morning and then going away by late afternoon. I also have a headaches, sinus congestion, sneezing, and a persistent cough. This has been going on for about 2 months. Blood tests come back negative. I am in a house that flooded. Could this be associated to mold?
They slowly go down during the day and are gone by evening, I dread going to sleep because I will be covered in whelps again in the morning. We have sprayed and bombed and washed our sheets at least 50 times. We spread Diatomaceous Earth all around our room and under the bed. We have searched and searched and have never seen a bug. The whelps do not look like typical bed bug bites and do not leave any mark behind once they have subsided, as I have read typical bed bug bites do.
The itching starts only in the early hours somewhere between 2 to 4 in the morning, and disturbs the sleep. I feel slightly wet behind the bottom of my penis, and the scrotum and penis starts itching very badly during this time.. I don't know what is wet that is creating in the skin... I really doubt whether it is sweat or somethin else.. I live in a very cold place, and I rarely sweat. I have a very mild sensation of something is moving in the scrotum while it itches.
do you have Hepatitis C? if not then you are in the wrong forum. Try the dermatology forum.
A few weeks ago, my thighs and buttocks started to become itchy, but only in the mornings, (not really throughout the day at all) around the time i'd wake up before having a shower. There were no marks or bites, but my lower body from my groin down to my knees had random itchy spots (maybe 9 all up, not many). I started to use Pinetarsol soap in the shower to relieve the itching, a few days after doing this, marks started to show.
Some are very smallred spots and some are the size of a nickel and raised. This morning my feet and my hands itchand I have not done anything physical. I have changed all soaps, shampoos and laundry detergents to be sure I am only using old faithful brands. We have washed all clothing and bedding. I have watched my diet to be sure I am not eating anything unusual or different. This rash is extremely itchy and will go away without a trace. However it is a daily occurance.
is there problem with my blood or anything like that? why does it itch only in the afternoons/evening? why not in the morning? [The itching continues till night, after i get up there is no itching...surprisingly...] PLZ HELP!
At first i thought chemicle burn, and that the rash would go away, it only itched in the area's where there was knew skin was coming in. Now the rash is slowly spreading, and far more irritated. The rash is reddish,itches,as well as raised. I can't think of any other possibilitie's other than the gym, to pick anything up. I have no allergie's , nor take any medication's.
Over the last few days the penis itch is not that bad but the rest of my body feels worst as if i've been working with fiberglass, its really bad on my hands, feet and face. I also started to feel a numbness in my ears and the back of my neck. My hands/feet are very shinny and look as if theres red dots under the skin. My veins also seen to be sticking out more than before. When I goto bed at night it doesnt seen to be there and even when i wake up its ok. its only come back as the day goes on.
I first noticed it in my hands, that a joint would seem itchy, but scratching didn't help. After a while I realized that it was a precursor to, or concurrent to my joints being inflamed. Just wondering how common this is, and if anyone knows the name for it. Also, out of curiosity, if you have experienced this, what autoimmune disease do you have.
) as well as swollen fingers since late Tuesday night. In fact, my daughter had to use olive oil to get her class ring off her finger this morning because her hands were even more swollen after waking up (which I told her was odd, since I thought swelling problems usually improve after sleeping). She has no history of rashes or allergies to anything. I know it may be a mild virus.
I have pain in my neck from last one year. It was stiff then i use collar for it and i take vitamin D injection also. I also have pain in my chest but i thought it was due to asthma because i have also asthma since childhood and using inhalers and nasel sprays regularly from more then ten years. I also feel pain in my last arm and sometimes in the cnter of my chest. My left breast is also very dry and itchy. I feel pain in my wrists, fingers, feet & ankles.
I've been expericing the same thing but I do have eczema so I'm always itchy when it comes down to my hands, face and back.
Hi I have woken in the night to find some of my fingers on my left hand are really itchy. It is only on the central slip mp and is red where I have scratched it and slightly swollen. Looks like there are some tiny dots. This has happen before on my ring finger and I could not where the ring for months and only still wear it on special occasions and I have not been wearing any rings on these fingers for months and 2 of them I have never worn rings on ever.
30 in the cold morning, without stretching... and if I go run in the morning without walking first) I never put it together until now... but makes sense to me... I'll just avoid "jump" in to the shower in the mornings and run without walking first. In other words, I think everyone should avoid a radical body temperature change, especially from cold to hot too fast... Now I can sleep and not think of bugs!!!lol Thank you DOC ;) !!!
