Avatar n tn My wife has had a recurring rash on her legs for about a year and a half now. we have been to a few doctors (no dermatologist) who have prescribed anti-biotics because they said it looked fungal. they have never helped. it will occasionally go away(not all of it but most of it) and then re-appear. she says it hurts when its really bad and itches all the time. it also makes the skin around the area look really dry to the point where it looks tight almost chapped.
Avatar f tn hi can anyone help me, i have an intense itch on my legs from the knee down, also itch through out my body but it would not be intense like my legs. there is no rash or spots, just itch i have tried tablets and cream but nothing seems to be working.
Avatar n tn Within the past week, I noticed a small red patch on my scrotum that originally looked like dry scaly skin. The area where the rash has flared up is underneath where the penile shaft rests on. I became paranoid and put a non scented topical moisturizer on it later that night. When I woke up, I noticed that the skin was inflamed with a pink shiny tone. It has now been a week and there are no visible bumps, however when the skin was moisturized I peeled off some of the skin in the area.
Avatar n tn You use a firm, natural bristle brush and brush you whole body starting at the feet and working towards the heart in long firm strokes. This should be done on dry skin. It's not the same as using a firm brush or loolfah in the shower. It must be done on dry skin (it helps cellulite too!
Avatar n tn I have an American Bulldog, he has a rash on both back legs and he is constantly chewing/scratching at them. Are there things I can try to make this go away. The vet wants to try different antibiotics but has no idea as well. His food he eats is Kibbles and Bits dry food but he has been eating this for about 6 months and this rash has just occured. Any suggestions would help.
Avatar f tn Hi i had my baby 5 months ago and about 3 months ago she developed this rash on her face which is now on her arms and legs. Doctor says it's dry skin. I tried aveeno and erecuim nothing has works. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn 5 weeks ago, I started noticing these rashes. Two on the side of my lower back and few on my legs; thighs and below my knees ( about 6-8 on each leg). They were red in color, not raised and dry looking. A week after I went to the doctor and he prescribed me with Flutecasone cream. Now it has been a 1.5 weeks and some are still red and other turned this fading brownish color. do you know what it might be?
Avatar n tn Symptoms It presents with itching, skin redness or inflammation , tenderness of the skin, and skin lesion or rash at the site of exposure. The diagnosis is primarily based on the skin appearance and a history of exposure to an irritant or an allergen. Patch testing, skin lesion biopsy or culture of the skin lesion may rule out other casues. Wet dressings and soothing anti-itch or drying lotions may be recommended to reduce other symptoms.
Avatar n tn Scabies is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. For exact diagnosis, I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn hi.. im 24 yrs old.. i dont drink nor smoke.. what else? i dont know.. can u help me.. i cant stand already.. i've been to 4 doctors and its getting worse... couple weeks ago, i've got rash on my body near the wounds. the rash came up after i put some dettol around my wounds... so i meet the 1st doctor and she gave me loratadine 10mg. the effect only stand like 4 hours and its start to itch again..next morning my lips swollen and become very dry..
Avatar f tn I now try keep the area dry and moisturized. For me Eucerin plus product, dry skin therapy hand cream. It is like a coating that is left after it dries and has been the only thing that works for me.It works on the legs and hands. let me know if it works or what you find out. You may want to also post on the dermatology site.
Avatar n tn It first started with a small area on my right arm but the rash became bigger, then on both my arms and now on the front of my leg. The bumps look like pimples and got inflamed/raised like a small mosquito bite when scratched. It fits all the descriptions of a heat rash but it has been a week now and they are not on the neck, in the groin, under the breasts, or in elbow creases. Just on my arms and legs!
Avatar n tn I would say It is most likely dry skin and fabric irritating the skin. If the sweat pants arnt bothering you, it sounds linked to tight fabric, or the fabric resting and chafing on the skin at all times. That can just be irritating, or allergy to fabric detergents. Hopefully thats all, good luck!
Avatar m tn The skin is darkened and is very itchy from time to time their is also dead sking on my crotch and inner legs. Their is also dead skin their from time to time. i am also getting a red band around my penis that is dry and cracks. i dont know if this is related but i am getting lots of pimples on my legs. After the pimples are gone they leave the skin darkened ware they were.
Avatar n tn i have had these red dots all over my legs/arms for a while now. i haven't gone to a doctor about it yet.. i'm 13 years old and haven't been able to wear any leg revealing clothes for a year now because of this. i put a picture up of what's on my legs and it's pretty much the same thing on my arms. i do wear loose fit clothes whenever i'm home now though (my mom told me it could be skin irritation caused by tight pants) and i'm home pretty much every day but weekends.
Avatar n tn I have also started noticing that my body is itchy all over and the painful red bumps have spread to my chest and ive started getting what almost look like spider bites on my legs (which could be the same thing, but they are just bigger on my thighs). Also, when I get out of the shower my skin is particularly itchy and a red blotchy rash appears and then clears up after about 10 minutes.
Avatar f tn ve been getting these very very light slightly dry spots on the upper parts of my arm, some times they itch but rarely and only more in cold weather. They only appear around the hair follicle and are very small and white I thought it might have been because of my arm hair but could it be dry spots?
1980069 tn?1328912468 Ive been using aveeno and so far I love it. I jad a rash on both arms and legs from dry skin and the soap and detergent I was using. Aveeno has helped soooo much.
Avatar m tn And the entire area where the patches were used is like this, on both legs, to the point where you can clearly see the area of dry skin as a big square shape--same shape as the fentanyl patches. Has this happened to anyone else who has been on the fentanyl patches? I know that getting a red rash is a common side effect of wearing the patch, but I cant find any info on the rash lingering long after the actual patch has been removed.
