Avatar f tn For about 2 years now I've had this undiagnosed problem where my body gets itchy when I'm warm, exercise, showering etc. Doesn't matter if I'm wearing any clothing or not, it's the heat that triggers it. It could be anywhere and it goes away if I scratch it. I have taken a general allergy blood test but nothing can of that. Every day I take 10mg of allergy medicine and it does help but doesn't remove my symptom completely.
Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms it does not sound like allergic reaction to dust mites as it causes red skin mimicking dermatitis. It can be prickly heat or 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. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease.

Avatar n tn Actually I take that back. It could be prickly heat. That would be a yeast infection. Desitin would clear it up.
Avatar m tn In all my internet searches I read that heat rash or prickly heat was caused when the sweat ducts got clogged or compressed not allowing the sweat to evaporate and seep into the skin causing redness ? I am confused ?
Avatar n tn It can be present on the groin, under the knees, in the underarms, or elsewhere. Using antiperspirant may help control prickly heat under the arms, but is not recommended for other parts of the body. For itching, both calamine lotion and oatmeal baths may provide relief. After baths or showers, one should make sure to completely dry the skin in a gentle fashion. Standing in front of a gently blowing fan can help dry the skin without causing friction.
Avatar n tn Hello, Yes prickly heat or malaria can last for months.It is common for milaria to occur when people travel to a warmer climate and sweat more than usual. In most cases the rash will clear without any treatment. However, severe cases can last for several weeks to months. I hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
Avatar m tn Hi All, I seem to have developed some kind of heat or sun rash that i experience every time i go overseas. It normally appears within 15 minutes of exposure to sun. I've tried all different types of sunscreens that are meant to be very friendly with no luck. Once it's appeared pretty much nothing will calm it down including air con, antihystamines or steroid creams (which i don't like using).
Avatar m tn Went to get an allergy test this week. Doctor said i wasxnt allergic to anything but likely for me during my appointment my skin started to breakout when i entered the room ( which was hot) and he diagnosed it as cold urticaria. I never had this last winter this is the first time in my life this is occurring so is his diagnose wrong?
Avatar f tn This past week we've done a lot of swimming in a chlorinated pool. The other night I noticed on my seven-year-old son upper arm what felt like a rash. But when I look at it there's nothing there but I can run my finger over it I feel the tiniest when I can only explain like a little tiny bumps are scabs almost It's not red or itchy. It's not swollen skin. But it feels almost like tiny scabs or pimples. He wears a swim shirt in the pool. He has pretty good skin. Sensitive.
Avatar n tn Hi Sam, Have you tried apple cider vinegar or ACV, use or the prickly heat after washing. Or Prickly Heat Powder form the British Dispensary Thailand, in either classic or antibiotic, these two are courtesy of earthclinic.
Avatar n tn How are you? Heat rash is also known as prickly heat and miliaria. This is usually seen in babies but it also affects up to a third of adults living in tropical climates or during hot, humid weather. This develops when your sweat ducts become blocked and perspiration is trapped under your skin. Heat rash looks like a red cluster of pimples or small blisters that maybe associated with itching.
Avatar m tn Does Prickly Heat rash form whiteheads, I woke up this morning with a rash on my upper chest (above pecs) and upper back (triangle between neck and shoulder blades). The chest is just red bumps the back on the other hand is quite raised and has hundreds (not kidding) of whiteheads, it is not terribly itchy but I definitely can tell something is going on back there. I presume it is Prickly Heat as I moved to S.
Avatar n tn Impetigo, the aftermath of Fifth Disease, prickly heat, a lot of things can look like you are describing. Most of the good medical sites have photos, and you might be able to narrow things down.
624829 tn?1240755671 Urticaria, also commonly called hives may be related to allergy, stress (emotional/physical), heat , cold or exercise. You should try moisturizing lotions and some over-the-counter antihistaminics like cetirizine or loratidine. Anti-itch creams such as diphenhydramine (benadryl) may provide relief. If there is no relief, you should consult a doctor for a complete clinical examination and tests for allergy panel. Hope you got some insight.
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis, but the symptoms are suggestive of prickly heat(malaria) or sweat dermatitis. Prickly heat (miliaria) is an itchy skin rash caused by trapped sweat. It tends to occur on areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as under the breasts, on the inner thighs, and under the arms. Tiny red spots with itching and pricking sensation are the characteristic appearance of this rash.
Avatar m tn i got up to my room and it persisted for another 30 seconds or so. then i had a paqin in my sternum that felt like a prickly sting that onlty lasted a second. i took a puff of my inhaler and haven't had any problems all day, even from running up the stairs. I am just wondering why i had this episode this morning?
Avatar m tn I have not developed any sores or red bumps or anything else that seem like classic STD symptoms...the only other noticeable thing is that the hair follicles on my inner thighs are a bit inflamed (not red, just a little raised). In addition, I seem to just be radiating a lot of "heat" from my body down there - sometimes I can literally feel the temperature difference on the skin in my lower abdomen, etc.
Avatar n tn As you originally stated - it just may be Miliaria/Prickly Heat/Sweat rash.. If the small papules are on your back, they may be flesh colored and unnoticable. Prickly heat can be mild to severe. I get this sometimes when the water is too hot. Have someone look at your back after you have gotten out of the shower.
