Common Questions and Answers about Itchy hands red blotches


487031 tn?1208812314 For about 5 days now he has had these red, itchy, blotches on only the inside of his hands. There's no bumps or blisters, just red, itchy blotches that are a little bit swollen. He touches everybody and all of him. It hasn't spread to anyone, or any ware else on him. We've put prescription cortisone creme on it and roll on benadryl. It starts to kinda' go away, but then just comes right back. What is it, and what should we do???
Avatar m tn Hi, What it is, I went out in the sun a week ago and I started itching on my knees, I didnt think anything of it until my arms started to itch and I noticed I had red blotches on my arms, wrists, hands, torso, legs, feet and now has gone to my face. They get itchy but not all the time. I have a couple of sores on my lips and my skin is throbbing. Maybe an allergic reaction?? I work as a care assistant so I can not go into work until the rash/blotches have gone.
Avatar m tn for the past couple months, i have been waking up with several red spots/blotches on my skin. sometimes on my arms, hands, shoulders and occasionally on my legs. for weeks i thought they were bug bites and tried and failed to find any bugs. then i thought it was allergy, but changing soap and laundry detergent had no effect. the red spots are not raised at all, and look more like little burn marks, and they do not usually itch at all, although if i get them on my hands they itch slightly.
1627703 tn?1314921048 i started getting these red blotches on my arms and hands more frequently lately,ive had them before but the werent to the point they are now. They vary in size,there itchy and seem to throw off heat and have an irratating burning feeling to them,some of them seem that they are a bit raised from the skin,and if there is alot on one arm the whole arm seems to ache. I have no idea what they are! but they are driving me crazy! i have a picture but i guess i cant post it...
Avatar n tn It is very itchy and once i scratch it alot, red blotches appear. The only thing that feels good is to burn my hands under hot water or heat. Please help me!
Avatar n tn evry minit of the day i am awake im itchy in diffrent palces and it goes red and swells up. if somebody pokes me it goes red and a little blotch. then it heats up. then i scratch and it goes all over my body. the doctors just basicly ignore me and dont giv me no tests for anything. and alot of clothing i statred to get itchy to. one week i wont be allergic to something. 2 week later im allergic to it. i need help ? im constatly itchy.
Avatar n tn (and seboreic) Cuz pretty much I scratch it and then it turns into red then bumps and wheals. And then there's the red blotches that turn to patches and they start cracking and flaking after a week or so of itching and then thrers little tiny raised bumps everywhere. Yeah that's everything. I've got it ALL right here. Should I join the circus? On the upside I'm able to channel my anxiety into this real intense kinda SPEED RUSH. I've done a thousand thing since I got home and not hungry at all.
Avatar n tn I have had problems with the palms of my hands for about a month and a half now. Started out with itchy, red blotches, now my palms are just itchy, peeling, and look striated. A little better, but no great improvement. Have tried everything over the counter, except for cortisone products. Can a deep burn cause these types of symptoms, and for so long? I had worked a part-time job at a mexican fast food restaurant. I stopped working there a week or so before these symptoms began.
Avatar n tn Only on the palms of my hands at the creases on the skin, elbows, a few around the heels and ball of my feet, and scrotum. (So they are only on extremities). I haven't eaten anything odd lately, or used any unusual products or new things, so I don't think its an allergy to something unusual. The bumps are very faint, very under the skin, but itch real bad. What could this be in such unusual places, and what can I do about it? Thanks!
Avatar f tn It's small raised red gots and feels like small blisters on the side of my fingers! It's soooooo sore and itchy, sometimes feel like a burning sensation! I got a cream on sat for it but wasn't clearing up so yesterday I got CHLORPHENAMINE tabs and dermovate cream still not helping! I thought it could be due to wearing latex gloves (allergic contact dermatitis) but today I noticed raised red blotches on my elbows! I'm not sure now, do you think it could be a sympton of ribiviran or pegasys?
Avatar n tn She is 83 and in relatively good health. She has also just recently broken out with itchy red spots here and there on her arms and hands.
Avatar n tn Hi, my name is Amy. I started having my face flare up in blotches of red for about 4 months now. I have never had problems with my face before. This incident happened after few months of giving my first birth. when the redness first occurred it took 2 days before my face was covered with blotches. They made my face slightly itchy and when in contact with water, burning. i got medication, corticosteroid, to clear it up. Then it reappeared a month later. Then I got an ointment prescribed.
Avatar n tn Same itchy sometimes, not itchy others red spots. Sometimes bumps, sometimes not. Why doesn't anyone know what's going on. It's not bugs. I have had flea invasions before and this is totally different. Chiggers is the closest i've seen but it's not chiggers; the spots are different from chiggers. BUT... WE JUST TOOK IN AN ABANDONED CAT FROM OUTSIDE WHICH WAS INDEED INFESTED WITH FLEAS!!!!!!! LOTS AND LOTS OF FLEAS!!!!!! ******But, like I said; I've delt with flea infestations and bites before.
Avatar m tn Hello Over the past week I have slowly developed a condition of a (now) red, tough patch of skin on the front of my scrotum on the left side. In the center of this patch are dark asymmetrical botches that seem to be growing. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said it was due to tight fitting underwear and irritation.. suggested I get looser underwear (which I have) and gave me a prescription for Antibiotics (Amox/K Clav 875-125 Sandoz).
Avatar n tn it also happens when i get nerves or embarrassed, im 17 and i am of mixed ethnicity's (white, and black) i get red blotches everywhere and it bothers my hands neck and back most i also et headaches f this occurs long enough
Avatar m tn At first it looked like a bunch of microscopic bumps that formed the circle, but then it became bright red and itchy. I waited for it to go away but 1 week later I started forming 2 more bigger ones on my left calve and 1 very big one about 7 inches in diameter on my left thigh. I went to a Vietnamese dermatologist and she told me I had scabies.
Avatar n tn These patches are not raised but appear as red blotches in the skin. The Rash appeared to come and go but each time it comes back stronger and harder. My doctor put me on Prednisone, Zopliclone and Hydroxyzine. He does not know what is causing the rash. I am getting a better sleep but still wake up middle of night with itchy burning hands. If I go off the drugs all the symptons return.
Avatar m tn Hello, These red blood patches can be due to purpuric spots or ecchymosis. Purpura is the appearance of red or purple discolorations on the skin that do not blanch on applying pressure. They are caused by bleeding underneath the skin. It can be due to coagulation or vascular disorders. I suggest you to get your blood profile and coagulation profile done from your doctor.
Avatar n tn And I thought the bumps on face were something unrelated. About same time I had ithcy red bumps on arms (about 3 red itchy bumps per arm). About a month(no more than) after I got home to NJ I went to see a dermatologist, because the bumps on face were not totally going away. They were red and ITCHY! no pus. I would put camomile lotion on at night and even take antihistamine. I put neosporin on and cleaned with alcohol. Wash face daily with Cetaphil(didn't use while in AZ).
Avatar n tn I have the same problem as this red swollen itchy eyelids. Don't have allergies like this. I do wear contacts--why would they cause this? I haven't been wearing the contacts for days now....
Avatar n tn Hi I have exactly the same thing red, itchy, burns when i apply any creams went and got allergy tests done and nothing came back comes up bad after a night out, beginning to think its spirits - its only happened in the last 6 months skin red, tight, and itchy if you have any look let me know

Avatar n tn Sometimes out of the blue my feet and calves start burning and itching like crazy and you can see kind of a blotchy skin like red and white blotches. It used to happen when I was washing dishes or came out of the shower so I thought maybe the water was making it like that.
