Itchy skin bumps after scratching

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin bumps after scratching


Avatar f tn I started scratching my left knee and patches of clear bumps or just bumps appeared. After I stopped scratching it, it disappeared after awhile. When I scratch it again, it appears again. Also, I've been getting red dots that seems to go deep into the skin and sometimes it gets itchy.
Avatar n tn I have had itchy bumps on my skin for the past five months. They started with just one bump and have continued to spread. They are mostly confined to my back and chest, however I have some on my arms and legs. The bumps are not red and are not noticable when they start itching. The bumps will eventually go away. I have seen four doctors and none have helped my problem. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn They itch and become irritatied after scratching. It's been an on and off thing for the pass 7 months but this time around there are also things that look like skin tags. Please help me figure out what's going on with me.
Avatar f tn A month ago, I got these little red dots on my back and stomach. they're really itchy. suddenly, they've transferred into my arms and legs. after sometime they're gone, my skin became "chicken skin". and now when I feel itchy and scratched my legs, red itchy bumps will appear. They're like mosquito bites. But when I stop scratching, they will be gone after few minutes. What could these be? I have been to dermatologist, she gave me ointment and oral med, but still they're not gone.
Avatar f tn Hi There is a common skin condition called hives or urticaria, which causes red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin. Hives can occur anywhere on the body such as the trunk, arms, and legs. Hives 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.
Avatar n tn Hi, Scabies is a common skin infection that causes small itchy bumps and blisters due to tiny mites that burrow into the top layer of human skin to lay their eggs. Scabies is contagious, and is usually transmitted by skin-to-skin contact or through sexual contact with someone else who is infected with it. The most common symptom of scabies is severe itching, which may be worse at night or after a hot bath.
Avatar n tn ok my girlfrien had a itchy rash with lots of white spots on her arms and larger almost like scabs on her legs evan though nothing was found she was told she has scabies shes ben treated and still nothing has improved know have a rash similar with the small white bumps no larger scabs or anything else just realy itchy after being checked and treated just incase for scabies they tell me i have ecsama nothing in my past with it either what do you think?
Avatar f tn Also since then I have had itchy skin all over (not on the bumps on my arms. Mostly around the face.) I was thinking maybe I have dry skin? I have been using lotion a lot more lately, and have washed all my clothes and bed sheets. My mom checked my head for lice (maybe I picked something up at the renaissance fair?) and says that I don't have any (She is a nurse so I trust her, so I think I have dandruff). Anybody have any idea what this could be? I'm kinda stressing out over it.
Avatar n tn We just call them skin bumps and she is used to them. I have tried treating them with Eucerin creams as her pediatrician recommended and with several other OTC creams such as hydrocortisone creams. Nothing seems to work. The bumps as I said do look like pimples, they are small and pretty much do not vary in size. If you squeeze them a small hard white head will come out. They are very itchy and I spend almost every night lightly scratching them for her just to ease some of her discomfort.
Avatar f tn I'm told itchy skin is part of the third trimester, but its been pretty intense. Any one else have it bad (to the point of getting bumps/rashes) and what do you use to help?
Avatar f tn I am always itchy. You are not alone.
Avatar m tn felt great to scratch while i showered and did add eucering plus alpha-hydroxyl which i beleive aggrevated my condition and the neutragnea seemed to dry out my skin... anyhows i don't know what it could be... right now skin is softer and not itchy (only one in awhile is it itchy on the outside of elbows (not inner elbows)... maybe some sory of heat rash but i dont think it would last this long would it?
Avatar f tn im now 20 and im still having really bad breakouts but not often(like once or twice a year) . it starts out really itchy and then after irritation from scratching it starts to burn and itch, then, soon after, little bumps appear(they're not red) that eventually fester into a large blister! it burns to pee but not from my vagina but because its touching the open blister.
Avatar n tn My thighs, genital, butt, and nipples are also very itchy and after scratching for awhile I develop larger red bumps, these are only appearing where I scratch the most. I don't know if it's anything sexual, but I've been having sex with the same person for two years or so, I was told he was checked for STIs after his most recent girlfriend, and as far as I know has only had sex with me since then. Problem is he is itchy too, not so much the rashes and bumps.
1055603 tn?1254239558 The swellings or wheals produced after itching can be pale (of skin color) or red. Urticaria is usually triggered by allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection. Other common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, or cosmetics. Since you experienced an itch, just go over these possibilities in your mind. Something may strike you.
Avatar n tn when i wake up in the middle of the night i have a bad habit of always scratching my butt. probably 2-3 days ago, i was scratching my butt cheek and i noticed that the bumps seemed to be coming back in the exact same place. is this eczema? maybe herpes? the bumps dont pop or blister and they calm down when i dont scratch. i have eczmea on my legs as well. my question is could it be eczema if it came back at the SAME place? or could it be herpes.
Avatar n tn In April my husband and I had sex and shortly after I developed red bumps in the crease of my thigh and on my butt. I showed my husband and he said he had been having jock itch and showed me. It was the same areas on reverse side and I checked online and found that it can be spread by skin to skin contact. Well, I got some cream and it helped but everytime we have sex it comes back and is now on both sides and across the part of my vagina that would be covered with hair.
7409776 tn?1408932789 So in the past week or so, I've developed these very small itchy red bumps on me. At first it was just on my bump, but it spread to my thighs and it's driving me absolutely insane! I don't know what it's from or if I should be worried or not?
Avatar f tn I will begin light scratching and before I know it I look down and there are tiny little red bumps there. I don't know if they were there before or after I started scratching. Also get itchy scalp. It can just be anywhere. Can put on anti itch cream or even lotion and rash will fade, but keeps cropping up. Seems like it's been going on forever.
Avatar n tn i was diagnosed with sarcoidosis over 20 years ago and a few times in these years i have broken out in very itchy bumps as big as hives but they were not hives. the bumps were very hard were raised about 1/8 to 1/4 of an itch above my skin level. i noticed that i would get a very nervous, energetic feeling before an outbreak. i would feel like i was losing my mind and my reactions to others was very uncharacteristic and nasty. it was very strange.
Avatar f tn These spots that eventually turn into thick skin start off bumpy and the bumps are filled with a watery liquid. After a while, the skin hardens. One area has been that way for years and the skin beneath it is fiber like. There is no elasticity to that part of the skin, the part that thickens. I would really like to get a better idea of what this could be. Why I have three areas, small areas where my skin has thickened and why my skin is itchy almost all the time?
975957 tn?1248362849 I notice small bumps on my arms and legs, and the itch won't go away even after I have scratched the skin right off. Now my neck has become so bad that i wake up each morning with fresh areas of skin scratched raw. It is spreading to my jaw area, and my skin feels super tight. Also, the skin above my eyes and below my eyebrows has become flaky.
1095404 tn?1333996439 excessive scratching can cause redness, swelling, bumps, broken blood vessels beneath the skin, and eventually broken skin. if you feel the need to itch, try to use a soft cloth in place of your fingers/fingernails. i learned to keep a washrag with me and it worked well to keep me from scratching my skin off (which i did a LOT of before i came up with the rag). hang in there! and let us know how it goes.
Avatar n tn I have moved into a new house about 6 months ago. I noticed after I moved in I had red, itchy bumps on my hands, stomach and thighs. I went to the DR and he told me that it is because of my sweat! Well I have never had this problem before! I believe it can be something in the house or the water. Our water has a lot of lime rocks (yes rocks) b/c we live near the river. I was wondering if maybe that has something to do with it. Or maybe mold?
Avatar f tn on the 17th of September 2007 I presented with symptoms of haemeroids and vaginal thrush, i attempted to treat this with haemeroid cream and an antifungal cream however the itching became severe and i broke skin scratching, the entire area (all the way up the back of my bottom and on my bottom cheeks) became intensely itchy. I went to the doctor on the 21st of September and she prescribed antibiotics, advantan cream (to reduce inflamation and itching) and an antifungal cream.
Avatar n tn Eczema is a chronic skin disorder that involves scaly and itchy rashes. Eczema is also called atopic dermatitis. Eczema is due to a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) in the skin, which leads to long-term inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become itchy and scaly. Long-term irritation and scratching can cause the skin to thicken and an have a leather-like texture. It presents with a rash or blisters with oozing and crusting, associated with itching.
Avatar f tn Demodectic Mange is not Itchy.....This mites are easy to find on a skin scrape.....Must be treated for months because it's a result from an weak immune system....Immune systems need proper nutrition to be healthy.....I have treated many for this with 100% success.....Great food helps alot! This causes red, heated skin! Next: Bacterial infections are from the severe trauma to the skin & all the itching.....They itch and must be treated with oral antibiotics and special shampoos.....
