Itchy rash treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash treatment


1711722 tn?1356487554 I have read through a lot of posts, where people are discussing the rash during treatment. I even read where someone dropped out of a trial because of how bad/itchy it got. My question is -- if you have experienced the rash, what are you telling people?? Particularly co-workers?? Once I begin treatment (in about a month), my plan was to tell co-workers I'm going through something similar to chemo. But several in my office have been through chemo and none had a visible rash.
1652596 tn?1342011626 Hi, I am almost 3 weeks post treatment and the rash is still bad, the hair is still falling out and the monitor says it will for at least another month. But I am still und!!! Is your hair falling out?
Avatar n tn After recovering from a serious upper respiratory infection (Amox with Augmentin prescribed), I broke out in a terribly itchy rash. At first it appeared to be like scabies, so was treated for that. Then, at times it was hive like (even the scratches raised up like hives). It is not everywhere, underarms, breasts, naval, lower abdomen, back. chest, shoulders, wrists, hands. There are many small bumps mixed with bigger hive like bumps. Very, very itchy. Calamine helps.
Avatar n tn Before thyroid treatment, I got that rash when my FT3 levels were high. Docs kept telling me it was Shingles. After the tenth episode of Shingles, I knew it was something else. One thing I read on this site which has helped me is a beta blocker one (allergy) and two (heartburn) combo. I take Zantac in the am and Zyrtec at night.

Avatar n tn So lately I've been feeling so itchy. Like all over my body, I don't get a rash my body just itches. I'm 12w 1d is this normal???
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to atopic dermatitis, eczema, heat rash or fungal infection if it is spreading. The treatment for all of these is entirely different. I suggest you to get an evaluation and a KOH examination of the skin scrapings done to confirm the diagnosis for any fungal infection. Biopsy skin can also be done. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
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 The rash showed up after 5 days into treatment for me..Thank god its not itchy.
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 m tn I have a red dry feeling, slightly scaly rash on my throat and chest. It is very itchy and kind of burning. I have had something similar in the past which turned into hives all over my face and body. Allergy tests revealled a severe birch allergy, but nothing else. This also started at the same time of year, when my furnace comes on in the fall. Last year it lasted from Oct.- March! I won't be able to get in to see a dermatologist for approx. 6 months.
Avatar f tn Possibly hydrocortizone cream, and benadryl FOR NOW, but according to my rheumy, once the Plaquenil starts to work (which can take a looooooong time, according to her) this shouldn't happen. I feel that the Plaquenil will start working in November when I am wearing coats and sweaters, and it won;t be an issue as much. I WANT IT TO WORK IN THE SUMMER!!! Oh well, gotta deal with it. Hope you feel better.
Avatar n tn I just started to notice a goosebump like rash on my arms. Does not seem to be going away. It's not red or itchy , just small "goosebumps" I am just finishing up radiation. I had five months of chemo before the radiation. The oncologist is not making any connection to the chemo or radiation.I guess I should see a derm. Seems a lot like what your are describing.(?) I hope you have success in maintaining your rash. Let me know if you find anything that helps!
Avatar n tn I in treatment now undergoing chemo, and have an itchy rash on my scalp. Is this from the chemo or possibly the Morphine I'm taking. I don't have the rash anywhere else.
Avatar f tn I had the itch and rash end of 2nd trimester.... so annoying. I had steriod treatment for other health issues n it made mine go away.
1031592 tn?1252376044 yes!!! the rash from hell, i thought i was going to lose my mind with the itching, and when i scratched it felt sooooo good lol, but was the wrong thing to do. that anthrax really really helped. it's funny how the sides affect us all in different ways? i got the rash early on, while you are getting it later on? well keep in touch with us, and we will try to help as much as we can. It's good to be with people who can relate to what is going on...

Avatar m tn I recently visited my Family Doctor to address a red, itchy rash? around the head of my penis, and in my belly button. My belly button actually had a grey like crust inside. I was prescribed Fluconazole 100mg for a yeast infection (Thrush).. After a week, it appears as if it is getting better (Penis). Red spots going away, no pain during an erection etc. I am now getting what appears to be a itchy rash on the base of my palms, wrists, chest, and belly button area.
