Itchy rash menopause

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash menopause


Avatar n tn The rashes seem to be related to either ovulation or ovaries or something like that. I have gone through menopause and this hormonal change has produced the itchy rash all over including breasts, thighs, etc. Since I've never had anything like this before I believe it's hormonal. If anyone ever takes the time to pay attention to Women and their issues then maybe someone will come up with a correct diagnosis.

Avatar n tn my wife is going thru menipause at the age of 45 and with spring here has developed very itchy skin but no signs of hives or a rash. is there an over the counter product that might give her some releif ?
Avatar n tn Hi, since finding out that I am just coming through the end of the menopause, I have developed a rash along my jaw and chin (and a little on my neck and shoulders). This is itchy when washed, or when cream/make up is applied. Any ideas? I am wondering if anyone has tried Macafem and whether this rash would go if my hormones were 'balanced'???
139064 tn?1262096233 Yeast infections are not a sign or symptom of peri-menopause or menopause. Thinning of the vaginal wall is. Yeast is always present in the body. It is kept in balance by bacteria. When you take an anti-biotic or other medication that kill bacteria, you create an imbalance in bacteria/yeast present and the yeast has an opportunity to take over. You need to re-populate the bacteria on the skin and in the body by eating bacteria via foods like yogurt.
Avatar n tn I have the same issues as everyone else. Itchy, swollen lips with a rash often accompanied by swollen eyes. I visited the dermatologist twice this week. The first time, he thought it was a peanut allergy, so I was put on anithistimines; however, while on antihistimines I developed swollen eyes and lips! Upon visiting the doctor again, I was prescribed a topical ointment for the lip area. The doc said that this condition is tricky to diagnose.
Avatar f tn while searching i found a lyme thread from 2006 on another site ( Thank you people for posting so others can research years later!) to answer my question about feeling itchy, like i am being bit my a mosquito or a flea and there is nothing there. woke up this morning and lazyed around, ( my way of saying i was too tired and in pain to get up! sounds like a princess instead of being disabled!
Avatar f tn I know this is an old thread for anyone to see Synthroid has acacia in it, and lactose, so if your feeling itchy with rash or hives your allergic to it, I did my research and Acacia comes from the tree brush family, so if you have allergies, your going to be affected by it mostly during allergy season, because that is when I started itch being on this med for 4 months today Im skipping my doses till monday to see if the itching subsides, so I can wait for a switch from my doctor to hypoallergeni
Avatar n tn Generalized itching can be due to allergy—you may or may not have accompanying rash. Common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, synthetic fiber, food, cosmetics (powders, soaps, shampoos—see if anything was recently changed) or drugs. Food allergies like to gluten, lactose, sea food, and alcohol etc too should be looked into. It could also be due to new soap, talcum powder, clothes etc. You must get an allergy test done, either a skin test or RAST, to know what you are allergic to.
Avatar n tn I'm a 51 year old female and for the past 6 years I have been experiencing very small itchy pumps on my upper torso (arms, chest,back shoulers) and in the lower back of my head. They come and they go but always seem to come back in the same places. These little bumps itch intensely and I find myself scratching them until they open up, bleed a little and then form a scab. They began coincidentally when my menopause began. In the beginning it was worse right before my period and when I ovulated.
1040102 tn?1253007657 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 n tn I have developed itchy upper chest and neck over last few weeks without a rash. I am 42, could this be a symptom of pre menopause?
295468 tn?1217600338 Thanks for you input - I have just recently had really itchy skin and a strange rash on my chest. I have a complex cyst and am going through some testing with my gyn-oncologist. Just didn't know if anyone had ever experienced such a thing. I have sensitive skin (sulfa allergy) and this keeps me on top of the types of soaps and shampoo I can use. I have so many strange symptoms that I don't know how to connect the dots. My thyroid is fine - and my prolactin levels...
Avatar n tn I have a itchy rash that itches first then welts up in lines then it goes away it usually occurs on my hands from the wrist area to my knuckles, my torso usually back area, and as a strong itchy tingling on the tip of my toes, but is not limited to these certain areas. I have had itching inside my ears, between my fingers, on my legs and feet.
Avatar m tn Hi, for the past nine months my skin has progressively got worse with an itch or pins and needles all over my body including itchy eyes. There has never been a rash on any part of my body. I have had every known blood test to man, as well as a visit to a dermatologist (no skin issues detected) and allergist (no allergies detected). I am otherwise healthy with no other symptoms. I have tried every type of antihistamine on the market including prednisone.
Avatar n tn I cannot believe it. The internet is great. I woke up yesterday with itchy ankles -- no rash, just itch. Today it is even worse and now I have momentary itches all over, but the ankles & legs are the worst. I live in Virginia -- don't know if geography has anything to do with it. I have been looking around the internet for possible causes, and found this site. Hope we can figure this out -- this itching business will drive you crazy and I have only itched for a little over a day!!!
Avatar n tn Im 17 and i am sexually active with one person and alway use contraceptives. I have developed a sort of a rash in the area where my vagina and my thigh connect ( on the wall of the V<- where the arrow points), Its been there for about 2 weeks.
Avatar n tn I have had no period this month but have developed a rash on the skin area over my tummy which is painless and not itchy. Is there any chance that the rash is connected with either the fibroid tumours or incipient menopause?
Avatar f tn Can someone tell me what either menopause (if it is early menopause as my mother and her mother had menopause early on) or if you can tell me if after-pregnancy hormone imbalances can cause these problems? I have had extensive blood work done, and although I get worse all the time, there was nothing indicating problems in my blood work.
Avatar f tn It all began following a camping trip when i was nine years old i came home with a lesion on my left temple terribly itchy and looked like poison ivy or a inflammed bug bite. I went to see several specialists, had many biopsey's showing it could be a bite reaction, leukeoclastic vasculitis, and 2 biopsey results showd up lymphocytic infiltrate. It has now been 16 years and the rash has spread to most of my body and the itch is just horrendous. The rash is definetely photosensitive.
Avatar n tn Two months ago my right breast became very itchy. A rash on my right areola (dark area around the nipple) would come and go. Starting a month ago, this rash wouldn't go away. It's not oozing or anything, but this rash has gotten darker. It covers about 1/3 of my areola and it randomly hurts. It's a sharp pain that doesn't last very long, but it's like needles poking it. The pain only occurs where the rash is. There is no sign of a rash on my nipple so the rash is only on the areola.
Avatar n tn no lesions or rash, just itchy hands and feet -- 1) The itch is localized, palms and/or ankles and soles, and it comes and goes with no regularity 2) However, several years ago when it first appeared, it was several times a week and I attributed to a specific building I used to work. Doctor prescribed allegra --- as long as I was taking daily allegra I was free of the itch. After I left that job, I could discontinue allegra; but the symptoms have not completely vanished.
Avatar f tn all itchy arm sufferers....please look into brachioradial pruritus. My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs.

Avatar f tn I was kicked by a horse two weeks ago and now i have a very itchy rash exactlly where the bruise was. i have never had a bruise this bad before so i don't know if it is normal or not. Does anyone know how long the itching usually lasts or does it not ever stop? HELP!
Avatar f tn Then, several days later, two quarter-sized (not perfectly round, though) red rashes appeared in the same area on my leg. Now, they are incredibly itchy and I cannot ease the itch whatsoever. I have been applying aquaphor in hopes that it may be eczema. It just seems odd that the sensation occurred, which I have never had before, and then a few days later this rash developed that will not go away. Any ideas on what this may be? Please help. I am very uncomfortable.
