Rash on legs and arms only

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on legs and arms only

rash

After a week or so I noticed it spread all over my stomach/arms and upper legs (less on the legs and arms). It is mostly concentrated on my stomach. It now looks like small red blotches all over that get worse after i shower and tend to get less and less as the day goes by. It comes back when I sweat or shower or have any stress. I went to a dermatologist and he said it was Pityriasis Rosea.
tonight, my legs were itchy and i noticed small, itchy red bumps on my legs and arms that look nothing like my previous rash and i am very worried about this new rash. it has been a month now and i just want it all to go away. any help would be much appreciated!
It first started with a small area on my right arm but the rash became bigger, then on both my arms and now on the front of my leg. The bumps look like pimples and got inflamed/raised like a small mosquito bite when scratched. It fits all the descriptions of a heat rash but it has been a week now and they are not on the neck, in the groin, under the breasts, or in elbow creases. Just on my arms and legs!
I have just recently begun to develop some sort of acne or rash, and I am having trouble finding what exactly it is I have. I have done research but come to no solid solution, and cannot afford to see a dermatologist for an in-person diagnosis.
I can tell you for sure it's not a rash because there is no bumps, only the skin color changes and goes back to normal after a while. What could this be? Stress, NERVE Damage? Is this related to STDs or HIV at all? I need some reassurance.
Hi, I'm 24 years old and for the past two weeks I've been itching like CRAZY only on my legs and arms. it started on my arms, I've not changed any soaps, I don't use fabric softener, I've washed everything I own just in case of allergic reaction, When I scratch these white rash-like bumps show up all over my arms andlegs, it's worse at night to the point where I can't sleep. I've gone through tubes and tubes of savlon which helps to ease the pain and itchyness for about twenty minutes or so.
There is no rash or any sign of irritation and is mostly on my lower legs and arms but sometimes can be on the upper. There is no itching on any other part of my body. The itching feels almost like pins and needles. It seems to get irritated after I shower or swim or my body temperature increases with exercise but mostly water is the common cause of it starting. However there are times when it will just start with nothing to irritate it.
I have severe itching on my arms and legs. I have no rash, no allergies, absolutely nothing on my skin. As others have mentioned, it usually starts after a shower or bath, but it can happen on its own or if something brushes up against my skin.I start itching and one itch leads to another until I'm going crazy for relief. I have my own theory. I believe its nerves or nerve itching.
The itching is only on my arms and legs, and it comes in waves. Sometimes I can't stand it and i scratch until I bleed and other times I don't really notice the itch. Do you have any advice? If you do could you please e-mail me at ***@**** ? I need any suggestion. Thank you.

They look like small little dry pimples with some looking like they are dry. They are only on my arms and now spreading towards my wrist. What can it be? A relative said that it could be scabies, I don't know.
One of the reasons why I was so concerned is that after googling about my rash, and finding information on the Internet on whether HIV rashes itch or not, I have found some sites where they say that it does rash, so that was confusing me a lot. May I ask a follow-up question on this? you seem to be pretty certain that it does not itch, can you provide more background on your answer please?
In odd conjunction with this I have noticed little bits of this also on my legs, although it seems to go away after a day or so- whereas on my arms it never seems to go away. I've been to see my Dr. who gave me a week of antibiotics (penicillin) and fucidin cream. Neither seems to be making a difference. Please help, when you have a moment. Thank you.
i have rashes on my both upper legs. can acute hiv rashes be on only upper legs? i have no rashes on torso or arms or face. and im brown some of them are red and some are purple.
My 5 month old son has a non-itching rash that only appears on his arms and legs. The rash varies in size from and centimeter in diameter to not quite dime size. He has had this rash for about 2 weeks now. Some days there are only one or two marks. Other days there are 10-15 of varying size. The Dr. thought maybe it was because we switched soaps. But we have been on a different soap now for 2 1/2 weeks and there is no sign of improvement.
also i shave of course my armpits and no rash is there. the 'rash' has continued to get worse on both arms and hands. its unbearable - esp with doing dishes and cleaning - so of course i use cotton lined gloves. again-thank you for all the info and i will check out the websites.
Currently, its my right arm thats suffering the most, i have something like 20 dots on my right arm. i only spot 3 on my left arm, and my legs have somewhat like 5 on each of them. I ask an adult about this and one of them says its because of the heat and sweating. The other said that its a sign that my blood is dirty. Im still a teenager btw.
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 seem to get a rash which occurs only in the morning last for at least 30 to 40 minutes then goes down when it goes down its interesting because I have white rings on the legs not that prominant on legs but I get these sort or irregular bumps in no particular pattern on my lower legs and thighs dotted around they seem to be under the skin and the only thing I have had over a while is thrush that didn't seem to go away because I was treated with about 8 courses of antibiotics if anyone could s
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.
It's only on my arms and legs starts out looking just a bit smaller than a mosquito bite, but then after scratching more bumps appear in like a patch. What could this be?? It's driving my husband crazy as well because I will just lay in bed and itch at night, but by morning the rash is gone so it will be hard for me to show it to a doctor. I did take a picture of the bumps I plan to ask my ob when I go back but it's really driving me crazy!
Oatmeal baths, and liberal application of emollients containing glycerine should do.
my one year old has broken out in red bumps on his arms and legs only. he has had them for about a week now and i can get rid of them. it looks like a bad case of acne. the bumbs are now dry and kind of rough. i dont know what to do about them.

i have some little red, raised bumps that have appeared on my arms and lower legs(calves). they itch horribly. they first appeared on the back side above my elbow and spread to my arms the first day and onto my legs the second. i went fishing the day before(exactly 24 hrs) these appeared. they seem to only be where my arms and legs where exposed that day. also i have been under a tremendous amount of stress, could either one of these have caused this.
