Itchy skin chest

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin chest


Avatar m tn I get an itchy chest from time to time normally after about 2-3 weeks after shaving my chest. I also have eczema and sweat quite a bit during my work outs. Saw my Dermo she said it was heat induced folliculitis. The only reason I worry is that - one, it is quite itchy when it happens, and two, I only noticed it after an encounter with a woman I had that was unprotected, although I have been tested 14 weeks out for any STDs and were all negative.

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 n tn It's probably a result of the hormones, which can do that (happened to me with both of my pregnancies). Depending on where you are in pregnancy, there are a couple of other things it could be, but I'd talk to your doctor.

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 f tn If exercise is nothing new for you, it's more likely a dry skin issue Dry skin. Since you didn’t mention any other symptoms, it could be that dry skin is the culprit. Are you walking outside or inside? Often, dry weather conditions can cause or exacerbate dry skin. If this is the case, using lotion, investing in a humidifier, and staying hydrated can all help combat dry skin. Skin irritation. Have you switched detergents, started using a new lotion, or are you using a new soap?

Avatar n tn There had been a really informative thread here one day about skin & itching, that I cannot locate now, duh...anyway I think it might have been NY Girl (possibly?) discussing with a few others here about the gold bond products & them having a noticable menthol like smell to them.

170935 tn?1225374676 Costochondritis occurs in the areas where the bony ribs become cartilage and attach to the sternum, which is the long flat bone in the middle of your chest, overlying the heart. These junctions can become inflamed following blunt trauma, surgery or hard coughing. Costochondritis usually resolves spontaneously but the pain can often be relieved by taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine such as ibuprofen or naproxen.
Avatar f tn For the past week, my chest has become really itchy. In the beginning of the week, I noticed a pimple on my chest, so I popped it. A few days later, my chest, neck, and collarbone become really itchy, so I tried to use some lotion to sooth it. I also used calamine but it kept itching.
Avatar n tn You can try a lotion that is non-comedogenic and/or hypoallergenic. That way it won't irritate your skin. And make sure you keep your skin very clean, so as to make sure there is no large amount of bacteria in that area.
Avatar m tn It used to effect my entire body, legs, arms, butt, back, chest, stomach, and shoulders. It now only effects my back, shoulders, chest and stomach more then anything. This summer it has been at it's best and at it's worse. I've tried everything, from anti fungal creams, anti itch creams, lotions, dye and frangrance free soaps, detergents, tried medicated powders. I have yet to see a professional cause I'm worried it will be a waste of my time cause it just plainly seems like I'm nuts.
