Arm rash treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Arm rash treatment


Avatar n tn I was prescribed a mid-level topical steroid along with doxycycline in case it was bacterial folliculitis. After a week of treatment the rash has improved slightly, but is still there. I am now out of the steroid cream. If it was bacterial folliculitis how long would it take to clear with or without an antibiotic? What about Keratosis pilaris? I have had this for almost 2 months now and just want it gone.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be a fungal rash since it is not responding to Corticosteroids.Common fungal infections are Ringworm. Ringworm, also known as “Tinea,” is an infection of the skin, characterized by a reddish to brownish raised or bumpy patch of skin that may be lighter in the center, giving the appearance of a “ring.” Contrary to its name, ringworm is not caused by a worm but by parasitic fungi (Dermatophytosis). It can exist anywhere on the body.
Avatar n tn For a couple of months now, i have had to deal with an itchy rash on my left arm. It seems that when I scratch my arms, these bumps appear. Sometimes they appear to have a white center. I find it most irritable at night.I also notice that if I go to bed with minimal scratching, the bumps don't appear to be as raised the morning after. I am concerned for several reasons.
Avatar n tn my daughter has a rash on her arm where it bends at the elbow. (not the elbow- the front of her arm) It is about a 4" ring with a clear center. It started out itching about 2 weeks ago as a bunch of little bumps. It does not itch now, and looks like an over-sized ringworm. She has a small patch in the same location on the other arm. It is smaller and less distinct as a ring. Any ideas what it might be?
Avatar n tn I had to travel to work yesterday, spent a total of about 3 hours with my arm in the window. Today I have the rash on my arm again. It's not too bad yet, just itchy bumps. I thought maybe it was sun, but the first time it was night. & since it only appears on my right arm & doesn't spread to anywhere else on my body I'm really unsure as to what it could be. The doctor in the E.R. googled a few things, but noting really looked like my arm...any ideas?
Avatar n tn My son has a rash under only one arm. He quit using deoderant under this particular arm and it went away, but still used it on the other arm and he did not get a rash under that one. He is 16 years old. What would be a good deo to use for this? Also, he has dandruff and uses a dandruff shampoo every day but it's sitll there. Can you recommend a shampoo. Oh, and the rash itches. Thank You for your time.
Avatar f tn I have a rash on my arm. There are 12 bumps, that looks like they have scabs in them. The entire rash is about the size of a quarter. It has never itched, but it is sore and tender. I don't have medical insurance, and I am a single mom, so I can't really afford to go get it checked, unless I know it is something serious.
Avatar n tn It cleared at the point of origin but now its every where else on her left arm and more on her belly and has started appearing on her right arm and legs. But now its not so much like a rash but bumps and some are red and some are not and some big and some smaller. They dont bother her, no fever, no pus, no white heads, no blisters.
Avatar n tn I guess a visit to a rheumatologist is not a bad idea, if only to get treatment for any joint pains. There isn't much in the way of treatment available. A good internet resource to read about this is: Best. Dr.

Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex about 6 months ago, I never received a chancre at all but i have been getting a rash over my arm for the past few weeks. It comes and goes but does not itch. Is this a sign of syphilis? Also if not what does the Syphilis rash look like?
Avatar m tn Also you need to keep your skin well moisturized always especially in the areas prone to the rash, after it has healed. Treatment is with Corticosteroid ointments applied on the rash for a short period of time to reduce the skin inflammation. Claritin and Zyrtec are anti-histamines which provide relief from symptoms like itching.
Avatar f tn Anyway I don't know what stage I am, go to see the specialist on 9/01. But I have this rash...little red bumps that were on my right arm. Went to my doc and he gave me a cream. But now I have what looks like small bug bits on my chest and left are and everytime I itch them it's like the blood vessels around them break. It's gross. Has anyone had this???? HELP!
Avatar n tn Does anyone develop a skin rash either just prior to worsening symptoms or during ?
Avatar f tn This rash shown in photo attached has appeared on my daughter (aged almost 16). It is also in larger patches in other areas including under the breast Anyone have any idea what it looks like? It seems raised and she said it is painful to touch. Her arm on this side is also aching when she lifts it. See pic attached. Thanks.
Avatar f tn In the months since then, I developed a rash on my forearms and upper arm. It then escalated to a red blotchy rash on my neck and some parts of my face. In addition to those areas, now I have redness and some swelling around both eyes. I have been to the dermatologist many times. At one point, she biopsied one of the spots on my arms and said it was contact dermatitis. I had a patch test done and was told I am allergic to thimerasol. However, no products I have in my home have that ingredient.
Avatar m tn Around it, there is a slightly less dark, but still dark red rash about 1cm x 2cm. Around *that*, there's a lighter red rash of about 8cm by 5cm. From this later rash, there is a long thin rash of the same color that is about 1-2cm wide and maybe 25cm long, reaching almost to my armpit. This long rash has grown from nothing to its current length in about 12 hours. It's quite painful and itchy. Putting ice on it makes it better, but not much, and hydrocortisone doesn't help. I have an appt.
Avatar m tn The marks grew into a rash on all three areas and now I have stabbing, burning pain in my arm, joint stiffness in the arm and fingers and the rash is pretty sensitive to the touch. I origionally thought it was shingles but the rash isnt turning to blisters but it feels like my nerves are on fire its only been three or four days with this rash but it seems to be getting worse.
Avatar n tn my grandson is 3 and he has had a rash under his left arm pit for a year. it looks like spider bites they sometimes swell but he doesn't itch them.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know what causes the red bumpy rash on the backs of women's arms? I've seen it on several women, including myself.
Avatar n tn Dear Dr., My 10 month old son developed a rash on the back of his right arm/shoulder a few weeks ago. It has stayed constant (not gotten larger or spread). It does not appear to be itchy. It does not appear dry. It is flesh color/reddish... raised bumps, almost blending together. I would say it is 'waxy'. The pediatrician told us to try cortisone 1% twice a day. She also referred us to the dermatologist, but there is a 3 month waiting list to get an appointment!
Avatar n tn I searched for arm itching which lead me to you blong1717 and others who suffer from arm itching. I too am so glad to see that I am not the only one. I have had this for 4 years now. Mine started out with poison ivy (which I thought was the problem) for the first summer even tho I still itched at times in the winter. The second summer I got it again and went to my Dr. and got a shot.
