Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash between legs

itchy

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.
My 2 year old female dane occasionally gets pretty red between her back legs (more like flank - where hairless part meets the hair on her side). She licks and licks this. I've used Cort-Aide on the spots and they go away very fast. The only come back occasionally, but seem pretty red. I've also see them under her front arms. Does not seem like allergies, but what would be causing the irritation just on occasion?
I have not taken any action to get rid of it other than using LOTRIMIN(Antifungal powder) for a little while. Here are the symptoms It's very itchy both side between my legs and scrotum. Especially, when i sit at my desk & start sweating, and when i lay down on my bed on my back with out getting sweet. Even, when i take shower, i have to wash thoroughly because of the itchy feeling. Sometimes, when i shave, the area becomes whitey and ashy.
I hurt my leg and developed cellulitis. Then a red bumpy VERY itchy rash came. My doc put me on antibiotics and pennicillin and said rash was from swelling. Then a diff doc hospitalized me. The doc there said the cellulitis was either staf or strep and gave iv antibiotics and penn. THE RASH WAS A Yeast infection,not the same one you get other places, but from the skin swelling etc. She gave me diflucan by iv and a cream to put on it and benadryl shots. It cleared right up. so did the cellulitis.
Few months ago I started having rashes between my toes. As days went on, a rash started to appear with blisters on a few of my toes. This rash gets so hot and itches so bad it keeps me up most of the night. My entire foot gets hotter and I have to wash my legs to keep it cool. But after few days again it starts to appear in to toes. My mother said the body heat is very high & that’s why you get these rashes. Please help me on this.
As it stood at the time of that visit and as it stands today, the rash between my legs consists of redness around the hair follicles where the itching is. On my penile shaft, there was a bump that the dermatologist stated looked like what could be scabies (there are now two bumps). On the inside of my wrist, where there is no hair, the irritation is red and raised. My forearms occasionally get red itchy bumps, then go away. My waist has red itchy bumps (but they do not go away).

When I was a teenager I used to run a lot and never suffered from this. Now I'm in my 30's I suffer from itchy legs even when I walk briskly - forget about running! My doctor wasn't any help. I too have tried wearing different fabrics, but it doesn't help. It happens no matter what the weather/temperature is, and starts up after about 20 mins. Very frustrating because I want to get running again. Any help would be appreciated.
It's not very itchy but sensitive to touch. Whenever I get this rash, I also get slight chills and a feeling of alternating between hot and cold. Before riding, I apply a full spectrum sun screen but it doesn't seem to help. A perplexing part of this problem is that if I wear loose fitting shorts or longer pants, I still get the rash when it's warm and sunny. The rash always goes away in a few days. Any suggestions would be most helpful.
im not sure if i have developed eczema but my legs are extremely itchy. there is no rash or anything but both my legs from the feet up to my hips and sometimes other parts of my body like my back or my breast itch so much that i just want to tear them off. its very annoying and i dont know what cause it or what is going on. people tell me its just dry skin but lotion does no justice... what am i to do? im in pain and i cant stand it anymore.
The question I have is what are some possible reasons I could be having additional rash continuing to spread on both legs? The newer rash ranges between looking like the red, raised lines of the jellyfish sting and smaller, singular red bumps. It is in a bout 5 different spots including both legs and my groin. The lymph nodes in my groin have also felt enlarged this whole time, as my body has been fighting all this off. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated!
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 a round itchy rash on my upper right leg. It is circular in shape, and has spread to about 5 inches in diameter. I also have one on my inner left leg that is considerably smaller. I went to my Doctor and he thought that it might be lyme. However that was a week ago, and the rash has not gotten any better. It is very very itchy at night and first thing in the morning, and sometimes it burns. It feels slightly warm to the touch and is bumpy to feel.
then i looked closely at the itchy areas and found that between my legs and my scrotum i was covered with red spots that looked almost exactly like poison ivy. Is there some way that i could have gotten poison ivy on my groin, or is this an infection/ possibly an STD? i did have unprotected sex a few weeks prior to the hiking trip, but i experienced no symptoms until the walk home from the nature area.
I consistently get a itchy, red, blistery rash after sun exposure. It doesn't really have to be that much exposure and it just started in the last couple years. I'm 30. Does anyone know what this is and if it's serious? What can I do to relieve the intense itch? Is it dangerous?
I have a rash of itchy pimples and they are spreading over my body. I went to the Doctor and was given a perscription for Mometasone Furoate Cream. I used it and the rash continued to spread. I now have it on my arms, legs, back and butt. I have tried Caladryl Clear and it relieves the itch, but the pimples remain.
I have developed a rash under both armpits and it seems to have spread to my chest and my arms and now recently between my legs. I went to the derm. and was prescribed hydrocortizone....It seems like the rash has resurfaced under my armpits. It's extremely itchy and seems to be runny clear perspiration.
Hi, I am glad that you posted your question here and we will try our best to help you with this. Vitamin B 12 also called as Cyanocobalamin and is usually administered as injectables for those ho require it. Like any other pharmaceutical product, this may also cause unpredictable allergic reactions. I think this may be the reason for the rash that you have described.
Hi, I got this really annoying itchy rash 2 weeks after giving birth vaginally to my daughter. medicine and sarna lotion don't seem to work. It itches even more when I scratch and at night. I heard other moms had postpartum rash too. What can I do to alleviate the itch and what is the cause? I breastfeed and it's unbearable at night with the itch.
I began having an itch on my right thigh about a month ago, which quickly developed into a large itchy rash with bruising in the center. It has since spread to both legs, front and back of my thighs, shins and calves, the top of my feet around my ankles, beneath my armpits on my trunk, and along the underside of both arms. Now there is bruising in places on my legs, mostly on the inner thigh/ hip area.
My Legs are soooo itchy!!! I keep putting on lotion every time it gets really itchy! I itch so hard, I end up getting cuts and scrapes on my legs! I guess it's a good thing I bite my nails. When I stopped shaving and my hair started to almost fully grow back out it wasn't as itchy anymore or not itchy at all. It was like I forgot to itch my legs or something!
