1654177 tn?1319838494 I had been suffering from the most horribly itchy rash the past three days as well. The only thing I found to help was my 6 month old's prescription diaper rash ointment. I am not sure if it is available nationally, but would be worth checking into. It's called Zabb-3. The main active ingredients are aquaphore, silver sulfadiazine, and domeboro astringent. I put a thin layer over the rash and left it on for about 5 hours.
Avatar f tn I have hot feeling itchy rash type bumps on my elbows and knees and when I take that 1% hydocortisone cream it goes away, but when I stop it comes back in same place. It most inflames at night and and in the morning or when my skin gets greasy.
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 I started with a red itchy rash on my feet that I thought was athletes foot . Tried Athletes Foot spray and did not help. Then rash spread to my palms and elbows. There are points of the day where there is no itching and the rash is barely visible, and then other points where I am so itchy and the rash is bright red. What could this rash be? What can I do about it?
Avatar f tn The first xyzal, this worked fantastic in reducing the redness in my face/neck, but then I began getting a rash on my elbows and knees. This seemed like an allergic reaction so I stopped. Went back to benadryl, the rashes on my elbows and knees went away but my face got inflamed. So 2 days later I tried 180mg Allegra, and the same thing happened! My face/neck calmed down but the rashes on my elbows knees came. Do xyzal and allegra have a similar ingredient, or what could this be?
Avatar m tn Hey, can anyone help me for about a week or so now i've had dry, scaly, sore, itchy skin on both my elbows, when I do itch it, it bleeds a small bit. It's getting quite painful and annoying. Any help or advice would be great.
Avatar f tn For an "ars rash" can it come after 3 months? And is it itchy? And can it be isolated to the elbows and thats it? Thanks that is all.
Avatar m tn I was put on an antibiotic and then developed an itchy rash on my joints. They switched my antibiotic but I still occasionally get the rash. I asked an infectious disease doctor who did not seem interested in my 'itch' symptom and chalked it up to a reaction to the antibiotic. Now I have finished my month of antibiotic and am still itchy. The itching usually accompanies fatigue. Would love to figure out what to do.
Avatar n tn When I started moisturizing for the itchy elbows, around the same time my whole body starts itching. It seems to start with an irritation in my foreskin, but that goes away soon (I don't know if it was related). It's not localized to any area, there's no rash, and it doesn't stop. I take a shower, and it doesn't go away. Soon, the first rash to be seen is on my thighs. Dry, small bumps appear in scattered clusters on my inner thighs.
Avatar n tn my 9 year old has a skin rash on his inner thighs and insides of knees and elbows; what is most likely the problem and how do I treat it?
Avatar n tn it has been about 4 months and the itchy rash started in the inner thigh and it comes and go's .well it is right on the pores of the skin ,it will be there under the skin but as soon as you itch it comes out red bumpy and some times in a patch. it gets itchier and itchier if you scratch and you leave it alone it will go away but that was for the first 3 months. now it is gettig worse its still the inner thigh and on back of legs around elbows alittle on outter thigh.
Avatar m tn please i have sudden rashes on my elbows, inside elbows, behind my legs, it comes and goes what should i do? im currently taking fluecinonide ointment usp, 0.05% it works well but the rash comes back suddenly, what should i do?
Avatar f tn About 2 weeks later I developed a very itchy rash on both elbows. I also have a itchy spot on one knuckle. The areas get worse if I scratch them and it seems to spread a little wider. However if I put a steroid cream on them they will go away for a week or 2 but come back. Could this be syphilis.
Avatar n tn I too have had rashes on my joints for years. I have mentioned it to doctors at times and they never have any idea. I guess that is usually what happens to me when I go to the doctor, I am always a mystery. I get bumps on my knuckles, elbows and sometimes my knees or wrists. It have just learned to live with it and generally doesn't bother me to much but I have always wondered why just my joints. Let me know if you ever find anything out.
Avatar m tn i been taking clenbuterol which is asthma medication, and i developed that same itchy bumpy skin rash on my hands and knuckles and elbow too. you may be having an alergic reaction to a medication you have been taking regularly?
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, Just wanted to check in and see if anyone at all has ever had (or knows anyone who has) an itchy, red rash that resembles either bites, hives, or both? The itching on my legs and elbows has decreased, but not it's one one thigh and up towards my hip (and a few on my butt), and a litle bit on the other thigh. Although I have no health coverage until Jan 1st, my doctor did talk to me on the phone...
Avatar f tn Well yesterday, I had put some sun screen on him and he went swimming and now not only does he have those same bumps on his elbows but he is breaking out in a rash on his back and chest again. Any idea what this could be?
2199483 tn?1338594436 Since hitting the age of 19 I've been getting a rash that goes away and comes back in the same area. It's very itchy and is more moist then dry. It always starts in the back on my neck next to my hair line, but gets worst over a few days and can come down to the front of my neck and even to my ear lobs and up onto my scalp. I've used many dry skin and anti-itch creams and lotions, and after a few days of applying it'd go away, but in a matter of weeks it always comes back.
Avatar m tn Two nights ago while lying in bed with my husband I noticed my eye was itchy. My husband said that the skin around my eye was red and slightly swollen. I started feeling itchy all over, and eventually had what looked like bug bites or something all over me; on my back, my elbows, and knees, and around my eyes. I took benadryl which relieved the itching somewhat, and went to bed. Woke up the next morning and the spots and itching was worse!
1077961 tn?1279581749 Hi everyone I have spots exactly like JohnK3 has in his photo. They started a about 1 years ago when I was around 14. First they appeared on my hands whenever I had been doing a lot of manual work. I assumed they were just friction blisters, then on my elbows where I assumed it was a soap I was using and I was over-exfoliating the area.
Avatar f tn I have had itchy bumps on my outer elbows for several years. They come and go, usually lasting up to a week before disappearing for a while. I don't really know what is causing them. This time I also got some on my knees. But I don't have rash anywhere else. The bumps are small and there are quite a lot of them. My skin is not red or scaly. The bumps are the same colour as my skin normally is. Clear liquid comes out from the bumps when they break.
Avatar n tn I developed a skin rash localized to my arm, small itchy red bumps sort of clustered all over the outside of my arms, elbows and 1 or 2 small spots on my hands. I was put on a Medrol dose pack and the rash cleared up completely after 3 days. I finished the Medrol and 5 days later I was broken out again, this time only on my elbows and small spots on arms, but all over my back, torso and a few spots on my legs. What could this be? I am trying to get in with a dermatologist asap.
Avatar m tn have you found a diagnosis yet, i have the same condition, and kept going back to dermatitis herpetiformis, the only way to confirm that diagnose is a blood test and skin biopsy to check for specific antibodies. I have itchy bumps on both elbows, on the outside, but they are symmetric and only appear towards the tricep area, however i ve been getting hives and rash like lesions elsewhere on the body.
Avatar n tn I have a skin rash that first developed on the lower abdomen (beltway), shoulders, underarm, wrist, and elbows. It is moderately itchy. The areas looked a little larger than a mosquito bite but smaller than a spider bite rash when you scratch it. In the center of each rash there would be a tiny little clear blister; when broken releases what seems to be water. New rashes have popped up on the top of my feet, between my toes and my legs.
