Itchy skin during summer

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin during summer


Avatar m tn I've had itchy areas on the tops and sides of my forearms for years during the warm months. My dermatologist told me it was because of a disorder in my cervical spine. I started using SeaSource Detox Spa Renewing Body Gelée by Arbonne, and it's the only thing that stops the itching. I guess this is shameless self-promotion, but I became a consultant so I could get this at a discount. Contact me at ***@****, and I'll send you some information.

612876 tn?1355518095 some pets are “cured” and only need the vaccine, some still need some symptomatic medications such as antihistamines, and some still need steroids, but at lower doses and less often or only during certain seasons.
Avatar n tn Allergy hyposensitization injections address the cause of a pet’s itchy skin by changing/calming down the hyperactive immune response to the environmental allergens, but require time (2-12 months) for effect, so symptomatic medications are continued while immunotherapy has time for effect.
179856 tn?1333550962 Even if you've baked in the sun like a sun goddess as I used to do pre-treatment, the interferon can and will react BIG TIME during treatment. At one point since I knew I couldn't go in the sun but I was looking so grey and yellow, I got the brainstorm to try tanning and went into the mildest tanning bed for half the time. I turned purple and never had a worse sunburn in my entire life.
Avatar n tn I have something that has only started happening within the past couple of years. Every summer, usually mid summer I get little red bumps that are itchy and form only on my forearms and hands. This year it has gotten worse, 2 days ago I had no itchiness, redness, or visible sign of these bumps. Then a red patch appeared, then 15 small patches along my forearms appeared, and over night it has spread to my hands.
749148 tn?1302864559 Good Morning, Just a question... suddenly I've developed a itch, crawly sensation! I think I've had it before but honestly can't remember. I have a cold and suddenly feel like there is something crawling on me starting with my scalp. I've checked there is nothing there! Not taking or doing anything different. As some of you will remember I was diagnosed with PPMS in 2008. I don't have "relaspes" things just seem to appear at times.
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. The were so right, I think there were 2 cream choices (packaging 1 green bottle & 1 yellow bottle) but I had taken a lil sniff, so pungent.
Avatar m tn My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.
Avatar n tn For the last few weeks, I've had incredibly itchy skin. Sometimes I get so itchy I scratch to the point of bruising badly! Right now I have a large bruise covering the entire inside of my right thigh, and many smaller bruises on my left thigh. As well I have a few small bruises on my upper arms and lower legs from scratching so much.
Avatar f tn I have the exact same symptoms as well. Very itchy and skin is bruising prob. from scratching it so much. I soaked in the hottest bath imaginable for it on my feet and it relieved it for hours, but yet it still does not explain what this is caused from or how to prevent it. I don't have any faith in doctors or hospitals anymore because honestly they all depend on the net too much for prognosis/diagnoses whatever!

465737 tn?1315758522 It seems like a lot of teacher wait to do IVF until summer. I guess it make the most sense. fairyzduzt- Yeah! Not that long and you'll be getting started! It sooo exciting and nerve racking for me.... It seems like it's going to take forever to get there.. but I have a feeling once stimming starts it will go by fast. I have to go to the doctor almost every other day. She wants to make sure I don't overstimulate.
Avatar n tn In fact, experts say that having itchy, irritated legs during exercise is fairly common. Certified personal trainer Max Hoyt said the symptoms are actually caused by inactivity. "The capillaries in your legs, they contract and expand rather easily, but if you're inactive they lose elasticity, so they don't expand as readily as they used to," Hoyt said.
Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Dry skin usually results from environmental factors that you can wholly or partially control. These include hot or cold weather with low humidity levels, long-term use of air conditioning or central heating, and washing or bathing too much. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.
Avatar m tn 2-3 years ago I started to spend most of the summer time inside my home. Last year, when summer came and the sun got hot my arms, ears, neck started to itch after exposure to the sun. I thought it may be a temporary thing but this summer the story repeats itself this year. I went to a dermatologist and he said to use SPF 30 and a moisturizing oil-in-water emulsion with 2% urea or something.
Avatar n tn In the sun they look like a small pore with some skin over top and they are clear. I can't pop them. They are really itchy though and get kind of raised. I don't have any other symptoms. But they are driving me crazy. It seems like they dry up and then the skin over top peels off and then it starts again a few weeks/months later. Any feedback? I can't go to the doctor right now.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 19 and in my state we don't get much sun, probably 2months of heat if were lucky during the summer the rest is rainy windy days and when it is sunny I spend my days in the water with no sunscreen and I sunburn tan and sunburn easily My question is I developed a mole that is about a cm high that is black and about an inch or less in width with a scabby uneven surface and a small white spot on my upper leg and it is painful when I lay on it and its becoming to itch, I have done my researc
Avatar f tn I have been suffering from chronic itchy skin which appears all over my body. My skin becomes so itchy that i'm constantly breaking the skin and scratching without consciously knowing. There is no rash before i scratch and the skin does not feel dry however afterwards the skin becomes red and bumpy which disappears quickly. I have been in and out of the doctors office with diagnoses of eczema and chronic dry skin. I've also been recently diagnosed with mrsa.
Avatar n tn Hi, Miliaria, sweat rash or prickly heat, is a skin disease marked by small and itchy rashes. Miliaria is a common ailment in hot and humid conditions, such as in the tropics and during the summer season. It occurs when the sweat gland ducts get plugged due to dead skin cells or bacteria. The trapped sweat leads to irritation or prickling, itching and to a rash of very small blisters, usually in a localized area of the skin.
Avatar f tn Hello, Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Allergic reaction can occur to strong soaps, Solvents, chemicals, certain foods, food additives, plants, metals, cosmetics, even urine and faeces of some animals (dust mites). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.
Avatar n tn (it also happens when I wear dress shirts, even worst when they are finished with scented starch!) This only happens to me during the summer for as long as I could remember. What could it be!? Should I schedule a complete dermatologist evaluation?
Avatar n tn Miliaria is a common ailment in hot and humid conditions, such as in the tropics and during the summer season. ' 'The prevention and treatment of miliaria primarily consists of controlling heat and humidity so that sweating is not stimulated. Measures may involve treating a febrile illness; removing occlusive clothing; limiting activity; providing air conditioning; or, as a last resort, having the patient move to a cooler climate.
Avatar f tn little, tiny bugs who burrow under your skin.. If you look closely you can see v. small grayish trails under your skin.. Hope it works..load on the moisterizer daily and wear cotton slacks at home.. when I wear sweats it's not so bad except in hot summer.. also the tanning beds and laying in the sun seemed to help..
Avatar f tn Just 4days ago i noticed my skin was itchy but i did not attend to it i thought it was mosquito bites or something until 2days later when i realized that i was getting small bumps after i scratch.These bumps are not red and don't have pus.I Am kind of worried because this is my first time and i don't have allergies.I have them on my arm,leg and a few on my face.I have no idea what this can be and i want to know if am ok?
Avatar f tn ive heard im not the only one but its embarrasing i live in florida and i cant be wearing long pants during the summer. it usually goes away after several hours or sometimes its till the hairs grow back ,,but it seems like a super long time. i don't know what to do. talk to the doctor? theyll probably change by shaving cream or the razor but i have done that to. i put cold water after i shave or warm, but still its an itch after i get dried.
Avatar n tn I live in Arizona where it is hot and dry. This only affects me during the summer months. Every summer I go to San Diego for a week, as soon as I get to California I notice when the itch occurs it is very mild, and goes away completely after I’ve spent time in the ocean. I will have total relief for a few weeks after my trip. I drink lots of caffeine and get lots of sun while I’m there…these are not the cause. I have four sisters with the same problem.
Avatar n tn Also, I have tried topical hydrocortisone cream and benedryl spray and neither helped at all, and like you said, it feels like it's actually UNDER the skin. I even wondered if I was having nerve problems since there is nothing visible on my skin and it's such an intense crawling/prickling feeling inside my arm, up & down the front of it, like following the nerve path. If we both have this seasonally though, then I don't know about my nerve theory. Something's causing it.

Avatar n tn As soon as I even lightly brush the area it gets insanely itchy, prickly and hot and I end up scratching off some off my skin. The itchy prickly feeling is deep in my skin and is so distressing sometimes I feel like I'm going to go insane!
