Avatar n tn i was reading the post that you guys sent in about itchy arms.
Avatar f tn I have been suffering from itchy arms for about 20 years and nothing helps except ice packs. There is no rash, this seems to come on in the late summer to early fall or when I am particularly stressed. What might help? Someone suggested I may have a sulfer shortage in my body.
Avatar n tn t know how itchy arms happens but I found something that made the super itchiness in my arms stop. A friend who's had a life-time of eczema told me about bleach baths. So I did as he advised, I took a cup of bleach (Clorox) and poured it in a bath tub of warm/hot water and got in it for 10 minutes. The first time I did this ended all of the itching. Four days later I did this bleach bath again because I thought I felt the itch returning and again it worked.
Avatar n tn Have all the exact same symptoms as stated in the previous discussion (Itchy legs, no sign of rash or irritation). Although there is initially no rash, one does occur after scratching the itchy area, the skin raises up into red spot until it becomes just one big thick skin area.
Avatar f tn I have had itchy tingling arms for over 20 years. I have been to so many doctors, I've lost count. Some say it's allergys. Some say it's stress. Some creams work for a while. I've taken alot of allergy meds. Zyrtec seemed to help more than the others. I also take Doxipen. the Dr. just doubled my dose. I have a steriod cream that I use as well. It only helps during the day for a while.
1040102 tn?1253004057 I have had itchy arms for 20 years. There is no rash, scaling, or anything. It can come on at any time of the year and usually lasts for 6 to 8 weeks. The more I scratch to more it stings and burns. It feels like someone is sticking me repeatedly with a needle. Its driving me crazy!!!! can anyone help. I have heard I could possibly need a neurologist.My arms will bleed I scratch so much. Ice gel packs help more anything Ive tried.
Avatar m tn So more than a week ago my arms became very itchy and rash (small light red pimples) started to develop. Around same time same itchy rash started to develop around neck (basically between breasts and neck). Sometimes itch goes away or becomes almost unnoticeable, but sometimes (mostly around evening, before sleep) it becomes unbearable so I start to scratch them. Could it be scabies? Or some sort of allergy (but my lifestyle haven't really changed for last couple of weeks).
Avatar f tn I too have itchy upper arms. I read one of the persons comments in the forum stating that the doctor told them it was psychological. IT IS NOT. I think sometimes when doctors can't figure out what is causing something they throw that one out there,. I have narrowed it down to sweating. I too have this all summer long. I notice it is much worse if I sweat or if I wear lotions that cause my upper arms to sweat.
Avatar f tn Hives or urticaria causes red and sometimes itchy rash on the body such as face, neck, trunk, arms, and legs and perhaps anywhere on the body. They are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found. They usually go away on their own, but in sometimes oral antihistaminics (such as cetirizine, loratidine, benadryl available over the counter) may be needed.
Avatar n tn Welcome to the site and to the community. You have come to a place where people are very supportive and have a lot of information. I would like to point out that as the information on your left says, this is only my personal advice and you should always consult a doctor with problems first. Also, while it is understandable to want information or advice about medication/s you should never alter or stop without speaking to the prescribing doctor first.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 24 years old and for the past two weeks I've been itching like CRAZY only on my legs and arms. it started on my arms, I've not changed any soaps, I don't use fabric softener, I've washed everything I own just in case of allergic reaction, When I scratch these white rash-like bumps show up all over my arms andlegs, it's worse at night to the point where I can't sleep.
Avatar n tn My forearms itch me to death. No rash. Only the hair stands up straight on my arms. But the itch is not relieved by any antihistamines, no matter how many or how long I take them. I have been perscribed some topical treatments, however they are too temporary of relief too. Steroid pills helped while on them, but now im off and the itch is back. Guh! It has to be an allergic reaction to something?!
Avatar f tn I've been so itchy lately all over my body no rash or nothing just itchy I'm 36 weeks anyone feeling like this?
Avatar m tn Let me say thank you for helping me out with this and also apologize if this is a bit lenghty. About 3 weeks ago (oct 8ish) i started with this itchy rash on my arms (outter and inner bicep area). It was just red itchy bumps. Now being a bit of a hypochondirac lol i got all nervous and didnt know what it could be. There was no pus or anything like that just patches of itchy bumbs.
Avatar f tn tonight, my legs were itchy and i noticed small, itchy red bumps on my legs and arms that look nothing like my previous rash and i am very worried about this new rash. it has been a month now and i just want it all to go away. any help would be much appreciated!
Avatar n tn I have an itchy red rash over most of my body including arms, legs, genital area, buttocks, and even my head (can't see it, just feel it). None on my hands or feet, underarms or breasts. Started on my right forearm in a small patch around a surgical site a few weeks ago, but just recently started to itch and now appears to be spreading. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn my husband is 70 yrs old. Has had a rash for weeks, on his chest, back, arms and hands The itchjing is driving him crazy. Got Cortizone cream from Dr. but doesn't help. His back is really plastered with red spots.At first he was told it was dry skin, but it isn't. He has nothing new in his diet, no changes that it can be blamed on. It spreads to other areas. Please help!
Avatar n tn I wore a rubber but 48 hours after sex I develop a itchy rash on my stomach, legs and arms. I though it was bed bugs and used benedrl and cortizone which rash went away after 2 days. I recently had unprotected sex with my wife and after 48 hours she developed the same itchy rash, sore throat and body ache. Is this a Std Parasite Rash? What do I have because I sometimes feel itchy here and there.
Avatar f tn I'm 37 weeks & 5 days and I have noticed that my body has become VERY itchy! Everything itches: my legs, arms, feet, stomach, boobs, fingers, toes, etc., and it drives me crazy! Anyone else have/had this problem? Suggestions on how to ease it, get rid of it, what it is? Please help!!
Avatar f tn Have anyone got to the point where your whole body itch? It not around my stomach,so I know it not because I'm having stretch mark. My leg, arms, hand, and everywhere itchy. It will coming out looking like rash or bump. I'm 21 weeks. My finger have some rash that look like eczema too. My appointment is not till next month.
Avatar m tn There is no rash or any sign of irritation and is mostly on my lower legs and arms but sometimes can be on the upper. There is no itching on any other part of my body. The itching feels almost like pins and needles. It seems to get irritated after I shower or swim or my body temperature increases with exercise but mostly water is the common cause of it starting. However there are times when it will just start with nothing to irritate it.
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 f tn I have an itchy rash that started on the back of my hands and forearms and has moved to to the inside of the upper arms and ankles. The lower areas of the scalp also itch. Diphenhydramine and cold showers help slightly to relieve the intense itching. It appears as tiny white dots, then the skin turns bright pink when I scratch the itch. There are tiny bruises in the areas of the rash about the size of a dime.
Avatar n tn 1. Can taking Panafcorte(Prednisone) orally approx 35 mg per day for an itchy skin rash , trunk , arms , back and hands mask early HIV or ARS symptoms. EG Fever, Swollen Glands. achy muscles? 2. Will this does of prednisone heal a typical ARS rash?
Avatar f tn I had 3 RAI treatments in the last year and a half, after the last one I had a macular, papular rash all over stomach, arms and legs, looked and felt like a bad sunburn. Since then, about every 2-3 weeks I get another one, not quite as severe as that first one, but very itchy and red and burns, it lasts about a week and then I peel and just as i am done I get another one. Could this still be connected with the radioactive iodine treatment.
