Itchy rash shins

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash shins


Avatar_f_tn I've always had a faint rash on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span>, but as the temperature has gotten hotter my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> has gotten worse. I initially thought it was a heat rash, but it wasn't raised and isn't itchy or sore. It looks like little pinpricks of blood under the skin, the only other problem is that the skin can be dry too. It stretches halfway to my knee from my ankle. The pharmacist said that its caused by poor circulation and gave me a cream. I'm not overly concerned about it, its not sore or itchy.

Avatar_n_tn Every spring for the past three years, a skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> has appeared on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span>, starting with my left leg, eventually moving to my right leg and minimally on my forearms. The rash consists of small red bumps that look similar to acne, it is extremely itchy, then is blisters and pops (whether I itch it or not) leaving a scab. It does not spread to any other areas of my body, my spouse and children don't catch it from me and it is not in my underarms or genitalia.
Avatar_f_tn I'm 45 years old, had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span> for about 3 mos. Never had something like this last so long...usually hydrocortisone cream (1%) works pretty quickly if I get a small patch of itchy tiny bumps. I've tried hyrdocortisone (twice per day) for over a month, and no help. If anything, it's spreading. Now trying my son's Elidel (for eczema), but still no change.
Avatar_m_tn i have eczema all over my body and have acne (im 16 so the acne is obviously from my age) but i have this horrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span> and calf its very small bumpy bubbles. theyr not fungus i cant pop them theyr only viewable if u look at an angle but are not filled with anything.
Avatar_m_tn I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on the top of both of my feet and on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span>, about halfway up my lower leg. It is very itchy. It looks kind of like a heat rash but I am not sure what it is or what is causing it. The rashes on my feet showed up first. They are on the top and are located right in the middle of my foot.
Avatar_n_tn Possibly the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span> was poison ivy. It causes a blistering <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>, is extremely itchy, and can take about a month for the rash and itching to subside. If you scratched it as much as you say, you might well have some skin discoloration due to scarring. I doubt that the current problem with the hands is connected, that that's just my guess. Good luck.
Avatar_n_tn Hiya Stella, after having my 2nd baby 3yrs ago I got a very itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> down below I was treated for thrush it didnt work. It drove me mad at night . then is started on toes and ankles so they gave me treatment for scabies which didnt work either. There for they told me it was Eczema so I got steroid cream which helped a lit and some moisturiser.... I did have a lil trouble sleeping but I thought it was due to breast feeding and getting up every couple of hours.
1094018_tn?1257147491 I have had two rashes that look the same and began at the same time on the front outer facing parts of both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span>. It has no blisters or any pussin... its just super dry and itchy... and its red sometimes purple (maybe from me trying hard not to scratch).... I noticed it about 3 years ago and it started off like a little patch of dry skin that was super itchy...i started to notice that it was just gettin bigger and bigger. I tried everything in these past years that was affordable...
Avatar_m_tn Hello, Itchy skin without any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> can be due to dry skin, contact dermatitis, dermatitis, scabies and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders, diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals, wool, soaps, cosmetics etc. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing.
Avatar_m_tn I get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> from the riba, which I have heard is common. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> is isolated to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span>. I first found that swimming in salt water helped, which around here is limited to two months, otherwise I use aloe to keep the skin moist, sunburn spray (with aloe and lidocaine) for when it itches and a Rx cream from the doc which is Triamcinolone asetonide. I have also used Aveeno lotion in the past. Good luck, hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn The next day, the bumps had spread up and down my legs, both sides, more concentrated on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span> than thighs. The bumps were now a mixture of itchy red pimples and small swellings, slightly lighter in color. Yesterday the bumps had spread to my forearms. Today they are on my neck, upper chest, behind my ears, and along my cheek bone and nose, as well as everywhere else already mentioned (but not on my back, stomach, or hips/butt).
Avatar_m_tn This may have something to do with my body’s lack of vitamins, the forced air heat used in the house, or possibly a combination of both. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span> and calves of my legs become dry and itchy sometimes to the point where scratching leaves visible marks. Additionally, small red blotches (circular and small in formation) and red non-defined rashes can appear. This is a condition that disappears in spring and does not bother me thru summer and fall.
Avatar_f_tn I am a guy, I just started having strong itch during night. I have tried 2-3 different kind of medicine from my doctor nothing works. I am going to use Soap loofah and try gluten free diet like other have mentioned in the forum. I had it last year and when I tried antihistamine it worked. this is it not working as the weather changed. I will share what I find.
Avatar_n_tn Ok, I'm joining in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> group. This is my 3rd day with the itchy spots. Came on slow, so I chalked it up to dry skin. But, it's not gotten any better. I found f I itch them, they welt up. And, if I don't the spots are red, and get a small white type lump. It's crazy, but I wasn't going to post it, I figured I'd just look up hives, and then read about allergic reaction and the body and the production of histimine, which is why it welts up., etc.
Avatar_f_tn I am experiencing a similar issue. I noticed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> breaking out on my hand yesterday, it stings a bit and is very itchy, there are now dark blue almost black bruises within this rash and my hand is swelling. It is so weird, I work in a hospital and nobody had any idea as to what it was.
Avatar_n_tn I have a red papule rash that is itchy. think the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> may have started just prior to quitting though on my legs. Now it is on my chest, back, in my hair, everywhere. Dandruff also developed and I think unless I am just noticing my skin more now, that moles have elongated and I have skin tags. I too am wondering if it is immune system or allergy to patch?
Avatar_n_tn Today is April 18th. About 2 weeks ago (April 7) I noticed a red (NOT itchy) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> mostly on the front of my shins, but sometimes circling my entire leg (shin area). It comes and goes and seems darker red and prominent at bedtime, and light pink and covers a smaller area in the morning when I awake. About a month ago (March 17) I returned to the gym after being inactive all winter and was using elliptical stair climbers 2-3 times per week.
Avatar_m_tn Can someone help me identify what kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> this is, its very itchy, It started on my feet, then moved up to my knees now its on my Feed shins, Knees, Elbow down to Hands, only a few spots on my chest, and stomach.
Avatar_n_tn I'm 37 years old and have over the last few months developed a very itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on the center of my shins of both legs. The rash appears to be red/purple in color and dry. I was at the Dr's a few weeks ago and she prescripted a steroid for the rash but it does not seem to be helping. It looks dry and could be some type of dry skin but has me concerned since it itches so bad and it is on both shins at the same spot.
Avatar_n_tn I have the same issues as everyone else. Itchy, swollen lips with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> often accompanied by swollen eyes. I visited the dermatologist twice this week. The first time, he thought it was a peanut allergy, so I was put on anithistimines; however, while on antihistimines I developed swollen eyes and lips! Upon visiting the doctor again, I was prescribed a topical ointment for the lip area. The doc said that this condition is tricky to diagnose.
Avatar_n_tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> could be due to contact dermatitis, that is exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to, it can cause rash. It could also be due to scabies, impetigo or sometimes due to herpes zoster or chicken pox. But to exactly pin point the pathology you will need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you an may ask for blood tests. If the need arises he may refer you to a dermatologist.
Avatar_f_tn I have had this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that the. Doctors dont know what it is. It started about 2 months ago, on the nape of my neck then to shoulders, elbows, shins, lower back and my stomach. I have been given antibiotics but has not help. This $80.00 bottle of cream which I feel spread instead of helping. This rash is pain and very itchy. I have done a variety of self OTC remedies from Benedryl to Benodite clay. I dont drink, smoke, watch my sugar, salt and stress levels.
Avatar_m_tn I am having a recurring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> that manifests itself on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shins</span>, spreads from ankle to below knees, used to come and go but is now staying for long periods of time. The condition first appeared abut 5 years ago, it would start as a red itchy area about the size of a silver dollar then expand over several days to a long patch up my shins with raised welts that would last for weeks.
