Itchy rash worse at night

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash worse at night

rash

It usually happens at that time, and only when I'm at home. Only my legs display these symptoms. They do feel itchy sometimes after a shower, but not as severe (almost like an after-effect of whatever bothered me at night). I am a deep sleeper, and this itch on both my legs doesn't fail to wake me up night after night, month after month. I use moisturizer hoping that it helps (it doesn't). I recently came back from a visit to the US, and I can say I never woke up from itching while there.
Every night (only at night) for the past few nights I get an itchy rash on my wrists, behind my ears, and on the upper part of my stomach. The rash consists of tiny red bumps and a couple of the tiny bumps have a white "halo" around them. I am 39 weeks pregnant, and I thought that it was just a part of pregnancy, but my husband also has gotten these tiny red bumps but they are on his cheek and thigh.
Didn't blister. Only gets red when scratched. Very itchy, worse at night. 5 weeks now and still itching! Heat doesn't make it worse, but cold helps. Any ideas? Going crazy!
I have noticed that during the day the itch is not as bad but at night the itch is worse and the bumps appear more read and full. I used some benedryl and cortisone cream one night before bed and I still fell asleep for about three hours and then woke from the itch and had to apply the cream again. Yesterday I found my dead sea salt scrub and started using that to help at night. The sea salt seems to keep it managable for about 12 hours before I feel like I need to reapply it.
The strange is that the rash only apears at night or is mostly itchy at around 1 or 2 a.m. It is so intense it wakes me out of a deep sleep. I am married and my husband had itchy ankles before I started with my symptoms. His rash (which did not look like my rash) and itching has since stopped. I've been to the dermatologist but he did not take a scraping since the spots were not juicy (ughhh!) The strange thing is they seem to become inflamed in the middle of the night. Could this be scabies?
i have the same thing and was diagnosed today with brachioradial pruritus..mine is worse at night and has even kept my from sleeping - it is either sun damage related or could be cerival spine disease..it might never go away but can be treated wtih cutivate, etc.
In particular, scabies is a transmissible ectoparasite skin infection characterized by superficial burrows, intense itching, which tends to be worse at night and secondary infection. The mites which cause scabies are not visible with the naked eye but can be seen with a magnifying glass or microscope. Transmission of the mites involves close person-to-person contact of the skin-to-skin variety. It would be best to have it evaluated by your doctor.
The chest are if scratched seemed to have a minescule hard whitehead in it. It itched at night a couple of weeks. I had a cortisone shot (40 mg), tried different creams, lotions & it went away. Then about 6 weeks ago I had shaved my armpits & probably put deoderant too soon afterwards. I also put on a new shirt & shortly thereafter my armpits started itching badly. It was definitely worse if I got warm or sweat. This went on, usually worse late in the day or overnight.
Not sure if I have asked this yet or not.. sorry if I have! Anyways, since my first "flare" in May 07 I have been getting an itchy rash just below my belly button. It starts as intense itching and then turns into welts/bumps. The more I itch the worse it gets. When I do have it it lasts several days and may not show again for several more months. Last night I woke up itching and it it back! At first I thought it was an allergic reaction to the buttons on my pants.
I recently have developed an itchy rash on my abdomen which at first resembled poison ivy. They started out as small clustered itchy bumps with slight blistering along my waist line. These red itchy bumps are now spreading one at a time along my legs arms, one on my neck and ear, now resembling small mosquito bites. I was recently away on business and I thought at first that the rash may have been caused by something from the hotel bed, but after I came home these bumps continued to spread.
I am itchy all over, especially at night when I lay down and start to relax. I do not have any rashes or signs of scabies. I do have dry skin on my legs and arms that I am trying to remedy but I don't understand the itching on the rest of me. It makes me miserable at night and my fiancee too because I squirm for the first part of the night and then if I awaken also. Any suggestions??
A protective ointment that contains zinc oxide (Desitin, Balmex) also may help. If your symptoms are worse at night, pls take an antihistamine like benadryl to reduce itching until topical treatments take effect. Hope it helps.

Wo wo wo I now your all screaming for more.. so ill feed you baby birds!
It is small hard pimple looking that is VERY itchy and is randomly spread over the body. We were convinced it was scabies as it looks much like it and itching is much worse at night time. We have been to three different dr. and they all said it is not scabies because it does not leave a track like scabies where we have scratched it. the pimples bleed when attempting to pop and when scratched real hard.
Itching is the most common symptom of scabies. The itch of scabies is insidious and relentless. The itch is usually worse at night. For the first weeks, the itch is subtle. It then gradually becomes more intense. Self-treatment is not recommended. Although there are many remedies on the Internet, none are as effective as prescription medications. The most appropriate treatment is for a topical medication or cream to treat the scabies and anti-itch medications for relief.
It starts by maybe me scratching my thigh just because, then it quickly turns into my having to scratch it because it itches soooo bad, then small hive like bumps show after Ive been scratching for five minutes. The itching is soooo bad Ive cried at night because I cant sleep. Ive dug my skin until there's blood, its worse on my inner thighs and backs of my legs.. Someone PLEASE help me!!!!
I am also allergic to methlyparaben which is in most over the counter treatments however I found one cortisone ointment without it and have been opening a benadrly capsule and mixing it in my MSM gel. The rash gets better each night and worse through the day when I take my antibiotics. I am also on oral benadryl for my IC (I also have IC, Medullary sponge kidney disease, and a chronic infection)> Any input would be helpful!
Thank you for posting, I went to the ER and the dr looked at only my upper back an told me it was scabies, but after I told him that I live with my kids and my husband and none of them have any kind of rash at all, then he seemed confused but never said what else it could be, just gave me a script for permethrin and told me it would help clear it up.
A protective ointment that contains zinc oxide (Desitin, Balmex) also may help. If your symptoms are worse at night, pls take an antihistamine like benadryl to reduce itching until topical treatments take effect. I hope that helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
I had also used a new hair dye (unrelated to the patch test a week before, with no itching or problems with my scalp. The itchiness on my arms seem to be worse at night, and are not there constantly as they seem to come and go during the day. My doctor has given me an antibacterial medicine mixed with a topicl steroid, but the itching keeps moving around and is unbearable; it gets better when I put a cold towel over it but that is all I can think to do.
Please help me!! I am suffering very badly from itchy legs.. I have NO RASH!! It usually triggered from when i take a shower, and when i get out its like the sky caves in..my legs itch soooo bad! I have to put bags of frozen foods all over them to numb them so i don't scratch the heck out of them! However, it has been gettgin worse, they have been itching more and more and without needing a shower to trigger it.. Sometimes its when i lay down to go to bed, or when i wake up in the morning.
Earlier this week, I had a day of very severe fatigue. That night, I woke up at 3 am with a severe itchy rash covering most of my body, especially my legs, buttocks, and trunk, as well as my upper chest. I took a Claritin which eased the itching but didn't diminish the rash. I saw my primary care doctor that day because I was feeling very under the weather.
By the way, the rash first started on my shin and other parts of my legs and now it's also on my ankle and near the buttocks.
