Skin rash welts

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash welts

skin

The welts are of irregular shape, varying size, and skin colored. They itch but not terribly, just enough to wake me up. They disappear in the morning. My boyfriend, who sleeps with me, is untouched by whatever is causing this. I sleep next to the wall and thought that there might be bugs lurking there somewhere because the welts appear on the parts of my body closer to it. Problem is I can't seem to find anything.
Hello, The symptoms that you have mentioned can be due to hives which appear and disappear randomly. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Your mother can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid.
My grandson who is 7 years old, woke up one morning with red welts and a rash on his face. His face and eyes look a little puffy. During the day he began to have more welts and rash on his ears, chest and back. He was running a low grade fever (99.2) and a little irritable. No other symptoms really. He doesn't itch at all. No changes in detergents or foods.
Every evening my wife gets a rash with raised welts at different locations on her torso, including, but not limited to, pressure areas for her lingerie. By morning they are gone, only to come back in other areas again the following evening. She saw a MD, but she had no ideas. It has gone on for over two months. Can anyone help?
I have had a rash with welts in various places on my body, mosty torso and back and head. Extremely itchy. It has been going on for weeks, I am taking antihistamines for it but seem to need more and more to control. I've stopped taking all meds except tegretol and had testing for foods and find I am allergic to eggs. I am careful of my new diet and still suffering more and more. Any suggestions for control, I have an appt. in 2 weeks with a allergist.
Rash, Hives and/or Welts, burning skin with profuse itching, chest irritation, eye irritation, esophagus and stomach burning.
Since August of 2010 my knees elbows and butt would itch so bad it made welts. The welts would go away quickly unless I was scratching. It also seems the itching is at its worst if I'm in hot water, or my butt is hot from sitting or laying. Been back and forth to the derm (I have no insurance) and they still have no answers. I've been treated for scabies which it wasn't, was giving creams to use with no luck, even the over the counter stuff does not work.
Why cant I get rid of this skin rash it has been on my body for months?
It can cause a painful skin rash, I don't know if this is what you're seeing or actual welts. If you've been going to the same doctor for 10 years it may be time for a second opinion.

Last week I went into a stand-up bed for less than my normal time and later that night developed a rash/reddened welts on my upper arms, neck, and upper chest. It had been a couple weeks since I last tanned but I have done that before and tanned for the same amount of time, without a problem. I always use a lotion and haven't switched it for several months. I am not on any new medication either. I would like to continue to tan but don't want to worsen or continue to get this rash!
For as long as I can remember my skin would welt up at the slightest scratch or even a touch. I knew it was weird, but I did not think much of it. Now I am starting to wonder more about what is really going on. My skin is really sensitive. If someone grabs my arm, it will tingle and itch and i would feel a welt start to form. When I used to play basketball if I got hit with the ball on my leg or anything it would welt up. Sometimes it would be a big circular welt.
Lately I have developed skin welts along the body especially in the areas of my underwear and bra line. I am perfectly fine during the day but once nighttime comes around, I begin to develop these welts. I heard having a bad kidney may cause welts but I'm not sure what the problem could be. I usually have to go change my clothes to more comfortable attire without pressure from the bra straps to avoid having these welts. Any insight is highly appreciated.
12 year old with severe cold or allergy symptoms for 4 days but seemed to be getting better. Woke up with a new symptom of welts covering arms and on one thigh. the welts do not itch and do not look like bug bites. The welts are slightly raised, different shapes and sizes and pink.

Just today my 13 year old daughter showed me about 50 or more welts on her sides, back, stomach, neck and armpits. She does not have any allergies that we know of. I gave her a benadryll pill and put a topical cream on each bump. They are slightly ichy but not too bad. Can you help?
My husband gets welts that are quite large on his scalp. He is bald so we notice them, otherwise there is no pain, itching or sensitivity of any kind. They range in size from quarter to 3" in diameter. They last for as little as a few hours up to 5-6 days. Almost like filling up with fluid slowly. Then they go away on their own. They are pretty much the same firmness of the unaffected scalp, in other words not puffy or soft. What can this be?
small welts come and go. also on wrists and top of hand.
Hi, Normally welts appear in a skin condition called 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.
I HAD A ABACKACHE OR A SIDE ACHE FROM BEING ON THE COMPUTER TOO LONG, I USED A HOT COMPRESS FOR TWO NIGHTS ( YOU HEAT IT UP IN THE MICOWAVE) IT HELPED BUT NOW I HAVE LIKE FEVER BLISTERS ON MY SIDE AND STOMACH WHERE I PUT THE HEAT, SO NOW I HAVE THE RASH LIKE WELTS AND SEVERE PAIN LIKE A KNIFE PIERCING MY SIDE. I AM AFRAID IT COULD BE SHINGLES I HAVE NO FEVER, NO OTHER SYMPTOMS EXCEPT FOR EXTREME SIDE AND BACKACHE, MY RIGHT SIDE AND A RASH ON MY SIDE AND BACK.
yesterday morning i woke up with a rash on the inside of both arms, under my armpits, up on my neck and down my sides. also have small red welts on both elbows. it does not itch or hurt. as far as i know i'm not allergic to anything and did not digest anything out the ordinary. i waited a day to see if it would go away, but it hasn't. i've had athlete's foot and it is still red. i don't know if it's related to my foot at all but i'm starting to be concerned. any insight would be appreciated.
red raised itchy welts, blotchy area on inner arm from elbow to arm pit and inner groin lasts a day to a couple
Hi It is difficult to comment on the cause for these symptoms without actually examining the patient. However, from the description given by you, it seems you might be having an autoimmune skin condition called Discoid lupus erythematosus, that causes a red, raised rash on the face and scalp. Around 1–5% of these cases develop into Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In discoid lupus, only the skin is typically involved. The rash is usually red and may have raised borders.

So about a month ago I looked down at my arm and I had a small rash about the size of a dime. Random, nothing to worry about. And then it gradually started appearing in other places; feet, calves, thighs, stomach, arms, shoulders, neck. I have come to notice when anything scrapes my skin at all it becomes a welt that lasts for about 3 minutes. But the welts and small rashes pop up also when nothing has touched me. However, none of the little rashes or welts itch.
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.
