I am having constant itching of the skin that causes welts to appear. It affects all parts of my body at any tine, and at any place. I will try taking a antihistamine but what to know if it has anything to do with me being diabetic and having 3rd stage kidney disease?
Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. 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. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. Also apply some mild topical steroid cream. If the symptoms are severe then you may need oral steroids.
Hi, The kind of rash that you have described sounds like hives. Hives are red, itchy welts or swellings on the skin that often come in clusters. They are also known as "urticaria." Hives can appear anywhere on the body, cropping up either in one small area or covering large patches of skin. They most often occur as part of an allergic reaction. In young children, a viral infection like a cold may trigger a bout of hives.
Hey all, for a couple years now I have been getting these welt type infections on my my skin. Mainly on my chest. They seem kind of like zits, but they aren't. It starts off with a red spot and grown bigger, then turns hard and leaves a scar. Very rarely does it pus or ooz. Just becomes a hard pigmented scar and goes away after several months. Meaning it fads. Any idea what these are? I'm sick of going to the beach with a red spotted chest...
I am a 26 yr old female. Just two days ago, i had these raised red welts appearing all over the front and backs of my legs, arms and are now coming to my chest. I have taken benedryl and i have had a shot of 50mg benedryll. It starts going away and then i can get in water and it cause them to come right back. I was thinking it might have been something i eat, but my usual diet hasn't changed and neither has anything else in which i have been doing over the past few months.
Hi, Yesterday I realized that I had a few red welts that were very itchy. I assumed I had been bitten by a mosquito. Then the next day I had a significant amount more of these itchy red welts. They appear throughout the day while I am at school and while I am at home. I have not eaten anything different or been outside almost at all. I thought that it might be dust mite bites or bed bugs but then that does not explain why they would appear when I'm not near my apartment?
looks like i am only going to do 6 months ... woohoo itching has subsided but now i seem to have these small red welts/lesions on my chest and lower abdomen they dont itch or hurt or anything ... does anyone else have anything like this? there are not many of them, just noticed them a week or so ago... i still have some bumps on my legs and arms they itch and scab over look like bug bites.. and on my inner thighs i have these dark red patches that still itch a bit ...
The term literally means writing on the skin. Firm stroking of the skin produces an initial red line followed by a broadening erythema and the formation of a linear wheal. It can be treated by antihistamines or cromoglicate and sometimes steroids, as they prevent the histamine from causing the reaction. As the underlying cause of dermographism is not known, it can last for many years without relief. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted.
I break out in hugh welts. They are raised and red. It doesn't happen during the day that I recall. Just evening time. Strange? I agree. It seems to be getting more often lately. Every day this week(Wednesday) so far. Need help!
Hi, Going to the doctor is the best thing to do. There are some irritants near your body which are causing it behave in this strange fashion. The eyes, the rashes and history of allergies, indicate that you may still have allergies. Keep us posted and let us know if you may need any more help.
Hello, One of the possibilities for your symptoms is of pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months) Topical and oral steroids are needed in severe cases.
I haven't eaten anything new or used any new creams but yet every evening when i go to sleep i wake up with welts where my bra was and anywhere where i had layed on my body. I also randomly break out on my feet when i am standing too long, and my hands will get really red and start burning and itching. A few times i have had my lip swell up too. I have no insurance so haven't had a chance to see a doctor, but when i take benadryl it seems to help with the itching and calamine lotion too.
I thought I was bitten by a mosquito, but got home and found that I had 4 quarter sized large red itchy razed welts on my lower buttock and a larger 1/2 dollar one with a smaller one next to it (about the size of a penny) on my right upper back thigh. I had been to the gym, showered put on shorts and walked home. (During this time, things started itching, hence the mosquito thought) The itching was BAD during the night and still itches now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
these welts become very red and spread usually on my face,neck,chest when im in the sun.
I have large localized red itchy raised welts (4 quarter size under right buttock and 1/2 dollar size and one penny size next to it on right side buttock.) Thought I was bitten by mosquito on the way home from the gym(wearing shorts and T) but got home and found the welts. They itch very bad. I have checked for bedbugs...(no one has been sleeping in my bed but me, no hotel visits) I had one on the back of my thigh about a week ago,when I came from a friends house... but it went away...
Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be due to hives Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red,itchy,raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. 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 is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. Diagnosis can be confirmed only after clinical examination.I feel that a dermatologist would be the best person to evaluate that.
Hi, Itchy welts are usually hives. Hives are red, itchy welts or swellings on the skin that often come in clusters. Hives can appear anywhere on the body, cropping up either in one small area or covering large patches of skin. They most often occur as part of an allergic reaction. No one lesion lasts more than 24 hours, but new ones may continue to appear until the condition resolves. Hives usually appear suddenly and go away on their own in a matter of days, hours, or even minutes.
Hi, I am male, have somewhat sensitive skin and have been getting itchy red welts which are wide (Up to 1/2") and flat, in my armpits and groin for the last few weeks, I am not doing anything differently from before, we use the same laundry soap, eat the same, etc, They appear and then go away after a short time and new ones show up close by. They are worse when I get hot after exercise or at night, they do not itch for long but it's dificult to manage when they start itching.
The swellings or wheals produced after itching can be pale (of skin color) or red. Urticaria is usually triggered by allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection. Other common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, or cosmetics. Since you experienced an itch, just go over these possibilities in your mind. Something may strike you.
They start to itch and when I scratch I get these red inflamed scratch marks and more welts around the area. Any clue on what this could be?
Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. 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. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible.
Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications. The mainstay of treatment of hives is antihistamine which may be necessary for prolonged periods (in excess of 6 weeks).Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms.
His ankles and feet have been really swollen. Two days ago he showed me his feet and I noticed he had several large red swollen welts on the soles of both feet which are painful to the touch. My first thought was that it was some sore of allergic reaction so I have give him two does of Benydryl. This has not helped much with the pain and the welts are still there. I also applied a topical gel call Synovium which is made specifically for foot pain. He does get some temporary relief with that.
Anyway I usually get red skin, but this one hurt more than usual, and the skin felt numb, and tingly then a long welt developed where the wax was done, does this mean my skin may have been lifted or just sensitve from having waxed that part of face for first time? I never get welts, unless I've been burnt or skin pull, usually? What to do?
Last year I noticed my feet were hurting, and they would itch very bad in some spots. On closer look there was white semi-circle welts or something on my feet under the redness. Now i've noticed one or two on my hand. They don't stay long.. maybe a day at tops. It starts as a red itchy mark, then you can see the large white welt *just looks like a large C on my hand. It itches and can get painful. Any ideas?
