Bumps under skin near ankles

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps under skin near ankles


Avatar n tn My boyfriend and I went to Rehoboth Beach, DE last weekend and he has an itchy rash on his waist, ankles and thighs. I have red bumps on my ankles and knees. Some of my bumps are raised and seem to be filled with liquid. He went to the doctor but could not get a diagonosis because doctor sen't sure what it was and prescribed a cortizone cream and antihistimine. Mine seem to be going away. We are thinking his could be scabies and are afraid to sleep together as it could be contagious.
Avatar n tn A lot of purple red polka dots that looks like bruises behind the veins. Doctors gave me plaqunel (may be spelled wrong) for lupus like systems. I got bumps under my skin on my cheek that will not go away. Sometimes it gets intchy and puffy. It feels really hard under the skin. These spots have been on my face for 3 years. It started out as one little spot on my cheek and it has grown to over my whole cheek. I also have bumps in my head that feel like air bubbles, they will not go away.
Avatar n tn it's hundreds of little tiny red dots that are under the skin. They aren't raised but they are a little itchy. there's a big long strip of them from my ankle to above my knee. Along with the rash i have bruising at the bottom of the rash on my ankles. I'm really nervous as to what this could be... please offer some advice, i'd really appreciate it.
Avatar m tn ( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up. I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
Avatar n tn Cat scratch then spreading red bumps really sounds like scabies, which is simply a tiny skin mite that secretes proteins that your immune system responds to--thus the rash. Scabies will leave little bitty hash-marks; the rash bumps will not be perfect circles, because the mites burrow in lines.
Avatar m tn You may find your feet being a bit swollen and having some skin issue on your lower legs. Wait your ankles will swell first, not your feet. That will come. Questions: 1 do you wear a hat? and do you have like a pressure or tightness that feels like it is outside the skull not inside? 2. is the part of your butt that touches your back pants pockets feel a little rough yet? it will be like goose bumps and not itch there. Actually that can come earlier and you might not of noticed it.
Avatar n tn I suggest that you have her consult a dermatologist. In adults, xanthelasma may present as flat yellowish bumps near the eyes. A thorough examination will be able to ascertain what could have caused this. Does she have any similar skin conditions in other parts of the body?
Avatar n tn It looks like little water filled bumps! I have popped several bumps, most come out clear and once or twiced a yellowish color. I am so scared!! i am aready self-consisios about my body and now i am worse. Please any help!!!!
Avatar f tn Some type of mite that gets under the skin. The hot water treatment kills them. A better option is Blue Star Ointment. When you first put it on it itches worse for a few minutes because they are trying to get out from under the ointment, but they soon die. Bruises go away in a few days. Worked for me. I also washed ALL bedding in very HOT water.
Avatar n tn It is a sort of itching sensation and then a sensation that there is something crawling under my skin. When I rub it with my fingers it disappears for a while but inevitably it returns within a few minutes. There is no pain involved. Would be interested to find out if there is a medical explanation for this!
Avatar n tn and it is very very common on the chest and back. easily treatable. you'll need a prescription. skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc. the abcd's of melanoma should be known to you. look for a=assymmetry(if you divide a spot down the middle one side looks different than the other, like one side is much bigger or shaped different. b=border, most lesions should be typically uniform around the edge, sorta rounded.
Avatar f tn My skin sometimes gets really red and blotchy on my neck, upper arms and upper chest. Not sure what causes it. It seems to come and goes whenever it wants...It's never itchy or raised, but does feel slightly warm to the touch. It gets annoying and embarrasing at times, people think I have a sunburn or rash. Does anyone know what is going on & how to stop it?
Avatar n tn I had this and it turned out to be Lyme Disease. But it took YEARS to get a diagnosis because my Lyme test kept coming back negative.... Eventually heard the truth about Lyme and how HORRIFICALLY unreliable and pathetic the testing is.... FABulous documentary on how fibromyalgia-chronic fatigue and all those other "syndrome" diagnosis's actually are LYME DISEASE!!!!!!!! It's on Netflix called Under Our Skin. It saved my life...
Avatar f tn Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. The usual treatment of scabies is topical permethrin. It is the most effective scabicidal medication. Usually applied overnight and repeated weekly once for 2-3 weeks. The skin should be cool and dry before applying the anti-scabies medications. Avoid taking hot water baths before as this will cause the medication to be absorbed deeper.
Avatar n tn There are also large hard bumps deep, under the skin. Sometimes it itches so bad that I have to use something other than my hand to scratch it--it literally drives me mad. I finally had time to go to the doctor and I was diagnosed with dishydrosis, which is a component to an autoimmune disorder I have called mixed connective tissue disease, however, you do not have to have MCTD to get it.. They gave me a cream called diplurene (spelling?). It helps A LOT!
Avatar n tn I have had Red bumps mostly on my chest and upper Arms, while they are not itchy, they look like small lumps of blood trapped under the skin, i have had these lumps for at least the last ten years...
Avatar n tn It's not like a rash, there's no redness except when I've scratched, the bumps aren't red, they are skin colored - it just looks like little fever blisters or something. When they break they are just filled w/ clear fluid and stop itching. They seem to itch more when my hands are warm (my hands are ususally cold - I have raynauds) like while I'm watching tv all covered up. Actually it started a few weeks ago w/ my big toe on top.
Avatar n tn Besides for the blister style bumps, I have traditional dry skin eczema on my thighs and back of arms. These are bumps and itchy with major dry patches but without liquid.That problem Eucerin or any fragrance-free, potent, extreme dry skin or itch relief lotion helps. You do have to be diligent in applying often and it helps to apply RIGHT out of the shower so that your body does not dry out and absorbs the moisture while your pores are still open.
Avatar n tn I'm so stunned to see that this many people have this. Wow! I can feel bumps under the skin it seems but I can't see.any. there may be some merit to the herpes zoster theory. The day after it happened I have developed sores in my nose and one on my face. I sis not relate the two until now.
Avatar m tn ) I still had a problem with it in the carpet so I mixed the Bifen in my steam cleaner and ran in and it totally killed them in the carpet. As for my clothes, I didn't want the Bifen near my skin and washing/drying my clothes wasn't killing them, so I bought a deep freezer and did a rotation-- putting my clothes in a week at a time and then keeping them in garbage bags until I got the rest of my house rid of the mites.
Avatar n tn Pillows under my feet worked. All those nights of itching driving me crazy. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I know i'm usually looking for spots that don't exist but when i pick i have a feeling that i want to get rid of any dirt or yukkiness under my skin, i have a feeling of disgust with it. I even do it to my partner sometimes, which is awful! I have a lot of small scars because after i have made my skin bleed i still squeeze or pick it until it becomes quite a large area of -well-mess.
Avatar n tn About six years ago, I noticed nasty little puckers and crepiness in the crook of my elbow. About six months ago, the skin under my underarm (on the inner side of my arm) started to look saggy. I have an antiaging blog and have used this to document everything logical to be done about this since many of my readers are experiencing the same.
Avatar n tn I had one bump like you described on my left rib near the sternum. I had a chest x-ray which revieled nothing. I then noticed it was getting larger and I was getting a similar bump on the next rib down. I had a CT scan, the doctor said I had a minimal residual thymus, but didn't seem to think that was a problem. They seem to think it's up to me if I want to pursue this any further. I live in a fairly small town, so I don't have 100% faith in the doctors.
Avatar f tn There are no visible bites, but when I scratch my skin becomes even more itchy and very red, and a few swollen bumps here and there. (Mostly near elbows, knees and ankles.) I don't think this could be flea bites, but I am wondering about bed bugs? Either way, I am very itchy and am having a hard time calming the itchiness. Hot showers, Cold Showers, and clear coat nail polish have done nothing but soothe for a few moments. I do not know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Avatar n tn The rash went away while I was on Prednisone, but as soon as I was off it came back on my stomach, arms and chest again, mainly on my breasts. It doesn't look like anything, just tiny raised bumps that aren't even really red. But the itching is so terrible, I can't sleep at night and I have itched to the point of bleeding many times, which causes ugly scabs to form. I am getting really tired of it! Any ideas about what it is and how it can be treated? PLEASE?
Avatar m tn So I am constantly trying to get the new bumps under control and keep the older, no longer itching red areas, at bay. It is really a pain in the butt. I am usually one big grease bag and mostly just sit around the house in my very loose and lightweight summer nightgown. (Clothing brushing against the rash makes me itch.) My main point in telling you this is to reiterate that the rash can occur at any time and it may not be due to Incivek, but rather to Riba. Also, if it appears, do not wait.
Avatar f tn At the end of the walk I had a rash starting near my ankles and this morning at my treatment, my oncologist was stumped at what he saw. It has spread to the insides/outsides of my ankles and is started raising up the leg a bit. It appears to be like blood vessels that have broken just under the skin according to my doctor, and is a dark red in color. It doesn't itch, but my ankles are a bit sore (though that could be a result of the 60 mile walk.
Avatar n tn 1999 I have experienced an intensely itchy rash that started on my ankle, moved up and around my right leg to the knee in June, then also my left leg, thighs, stomach, and arms from the elbows down. It is a bumpy red rash, but at the beginning, my skin itched, then the bumps appeared. At its peak, I itched the second I woke up, especially on my arms, but everyone says it is not scabies. I have seen my gp and two dermatologists who has prescribed: E-mycin, Bactroban, Psorcon-E .
