Avatar f tn I have been getting a red bumpy rash on the back of my legs after swimming in oceans, lakes, pools and hot tubs. The rash is in places that come in contact with my swimsuit. The rash on my penis is flaky and dry on the tip.
Avatar m tn When I asked her what was that she explained me that she had an allergy from the belt buckle (the rash looked pretty much like that, but I am not too sure, because it was dark : http://blog.saintsabrinas.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/belt-buckle-allergy.jpg ). She also named the allergy and the name sounded like "kota... something" but she said it really fast and I couldn't remember it. Anyway I got scared... stand up, put my clothes on and left.
Avatar m tn Thanks for everyone's reply. We have switched detergents to a Tide free and clear, no fragrance, etc... but it will take a while till everything has been washed in it. What soap do you recommend for the shower? We have been using Dove for years. I don't think sweat is the trigger, I really don't sweat much. I have yesterday bought gold bond and that seems to soothe the itching. I will also contact my Dr. and ask about Loratidine.
Avatar f tn I have had a somewhat kind of rash or bites on my legs for the last month. 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!
Avatar f tn A couple of weeks ago I had a rash on both legs. I think I was about 14 weeks. I finally realized that I was allergic to my new sweat pants. Anyway, I took benedryl for the rash and my dr said it was fine. Have you changed anything recently that might cause this?
Avatar f tn I develop a rash on my neck at beginning of summer or when i visit hot places like Arizona occasionally. I live in CA, now I'm getting one. It only happenes to my neck. It starts like red blotchies here and there, (not bumpy) itchies. It consists like a month or abit more. Towards healing end, red marks turns into brownish color and that area skin looks like wrinkles like after sunburned. It doesn't happen often.

Avatar n tn For five years now I am unable to sunbathe, I get a red rash and sometimes very small bubbles mostly on my belly and the inside of my arms and upper legs. It gets really itchy, especially at night and water doesn't help calm it, although cortisone creams do but i'd rather not use them, but in any case it goes away after a few days. Throughout my life I had always great resistance to the sun as I have olive skin and dark features.
Avatar f tn Hi, for the past 4-5 nights I've had a rash/hive issue on my legs. I wake up around 3am for whatever reason and then it starts. My legs get really itchy and hot and there's often splotchy red areas and areas with white dots. I eventually fall asleep again and when I get up for the day there's nothing there. It leaves me feeling a little out of it for most of the morning. Could it be from stress? I also have daily stomach troubles and I don't know if it's related.
Avatar f tn Last spring, it began with a rash across her cheeks. As the weather warmed, she began developing a rash on her arms and eventually a light rash upon her legs. As the spring turned into summer, the rash subsided. I took her to her pediatrician last year and was received with a shrug. No explanation was given and so I did my own research over the months and concluded she may be reacting to the sun. So I patiently awaited this spring to see if the same thing occurred.
Avatar m tn itchy red rash on both hips, buttocks, and scrotum. The rash is red and extremely itchy and uncomfortable. Random small, blistery hive breakouts on wrists, arms, back of legs, stomach, and chest. Symptoms persisting for 10 months. 33 year old male. About 10 months ago, I got a red itchy rash on my right hip. It persisted for about a month and then went away for a while and I thought that was the end of it.
Avatar m tn Itching on arms and legs only, no rash. Occurs about every 6-7 days for the past month. Take Benedryl, Zertec, and Zantac at one time. Takes 6-24 hours for itch to stop. I assume it is something that I eat. Suppose I need to get Dr. to run test?

Nothing works and I am at my wits end, I have cried ond cried with the itching and burning. Sometimes I wish I could cut my legs off! Please help!

Avatar n tn It's very difficult to say what the cause of your allergy is- have you been to an allergist at all? I'd start by keeping a journal- note what you eat, what products you use on your skin, even the weather- anything that you believe could be the cause and note how your rash is. You can also try to eliminate things that you are exposed to when you notice the rash is bad- and see an allergist so they can help walk you through this.
Avatar m tn and more specifically, the lower limbs, below the calf muscle, on the back of the legs.. i went thru a lot of posts here, n i can c dat a LOT of ppl get an itch after shower/swimming. well i too get extra itchy after a shower, but my legs itch otherwise also, for no rhyme or reason. although i havent tried any of the creams n lotions, i have been using herbal soaps for like my entire life, but this problem started just a month back.
Avatar m tn I'm a swimmer and have developed this rash which consists of red bumps over my back, arms, front and legs. The rash itches terribly. I've tried creams and lotions and the rash stops itching in about two days. I find if I wash three times it seems to help keep it from getting to bad. Therefore I assume that it is something in the water. It only happens when I swim in my "Y" pool.
Avatar n tn My 65 y.o mother recently started getting a rash that began on her upper chest and has spread all over her body-head, face, arms, legs, hands, buttocks, legs. It starts out like a red discoloration on the skin and progresses to small open sores, not blisters. She had a severe allergic reaction to levaquin back in september, but recent rash did not begin until feb. She was taking macrobid for kidney infection in jan. but rash did not begin until feb.
Avatar f tn The bumps are on my hands, feet, buttocks, waistline, arms, legs, and genitals. The worst bumps occur on genitals, waistline, and buttocks. I originally thought it was scabies, but nobody in my house at school has been affected at all..and I have seen no track marks on my body. I have noticed the itching becomes persistent when I am hot and my skin is moist. Please help!!
Avatar m tn A couple of weeks the top and inside of my legs started getting really itchy, only when i went to bed though. There was never a rash, however I itching my legs so much that i was bruising my legs, but not drawing blood, and a rash has never formed. I have slowly started getting it over random areas of my body, like torso, back, top of my buttocks. Today it is partially bad on the back of my legs.
Avatar n tn I've been having hives only on my lower part of my legs and lower part of my arms. They are like dry patches with tiny bumps. In a dry climate, I have no issues. When I'm in a humid climate, it gets worse. I've taken Zantac and Claritin, steroids and no luck...
