Itchy skin medication

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin medication


Avatar f tn It usually disappears right after delivery. You may also find that things that normally make you itchy, such as dry skin, make you even itchier when you're pregnant. Eczema often worsens during pregnancy, though some women find that their condition actually improves. With psoriasis the situation is reversed: Many women report less severe symptoms during pregnancy, while a few find that being pregnant makes their psoriasis worse.

Avatar f tn Itchy skin is normal, however if the palms of hands and soles of feet are itchy or have a rash it could be Obstetric Cholistasis. Which is treated usually with medication and Vit K. Its due to the pregnancy. Call your doctor and have him check it out. No reason for alarm.
Avatar n tn It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema.
Avatar n tn My 4 year old has a serious itchy skin. She feels very itchy anytime immediately after shower and whenever she wears socks, tights or any fabric with lycra. We've tried different types of soaps and body lotions which rather makes it works. Is there any medication, lotion or soaps or a kind of food that can stop this itch. Please advise. Thanks.

Avatar f tn Hives are red, itchy welts or swellings on the skin that often come in clusters. They sometimes have a light red or pale center surrounded by a darker red area around the borders -- a marking resembling tiny bull's eyes -- but may simply look like large red circles. In doctor speak, hives are known as "urticaria." Hives can appear anywhere on the body, cropping up either in one small area or covering large patches of skin. They most often occur as part of an allergic reaction.

Avatar n tn You might consult a Dermatologist concerning your problem. The skin on the breasts is the same as skin on any other part of the body and subject to the same problems. The soreness is no doubt due to irritation from scratching. A Dermatologist could no doubt recommend some medication to apply to relieve the itching. Regards ....

Avatar n tn my nipples been very itchy for the past few weeks, it looks like around the nipple is spiltting and had just started bleeding recently, should i take this to the docots and get it looked at .. ????
Avatar m tn This could be due to a variety of issues such as irritation, allergic reaction, infection, possible insect bites or skin conditions. Continue the medication as prescribed and try not to scratch to prevent secondary bacterial infection. However, if it persists, you may need to inform your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn it felt kind of like a sunburn or something. The skin is really dry as well. Also, there are times when the itchy is unbearable. I have never had sex or been given oral or anything else in that area. usually its fine but there are times when itchy it feel so good and hurts that its almost sickning. other times it doesnt feel like anything. I thought maybe it was a yeast infection but there is no burning when I pee or anything liek that and there is no dischard but its very dry.

Avatar f tn Same thing happened to me. I mentioned it to midwife and that the itching was worse at night. She drew blood and I had elevated liver bile acid levels. She then gave me medication that I have to take twice a day as well as herbal detox drops for the liver. The condition is obstetric cholestasis and you only get it in pregnancy.. It ***** but, goes away after.

Avatar f tn For three months, my husband and I have had itchy red bumps on our skin - arms, legs, and back mostly. They will go away but then recur within a couple of days or so. We treated for scabies (October 9 and then the following week) as per our family physician, but that didn't seem to work. We have a new hot tub and soaked in it every day for two months for 40 minutes each night. Could that be part or all of the problem? Thank you for any help you can give us.
Avatar f tn For the past few months on & off i have been experiencing itchy skin which is of a prickly sensation. I get this tingly prickly/ itchy sensation everywhere. I havent noticed that it has anything to do with anything like heat/cold, it just comes on out the blue. My skin doesnt look red or has no spots, it is dry but not badly, just a little. The only medication i take at present is 5-htp but cant find a link with this. I would appreciate some specialist input if possible.
Avatar m tn i am a young man and for the last few months i have suffered from extremely dry itchy skin around my penis and scrotum and genitials. Some days i wont notice it very often but it seems that when i get sweaty at all it really starts to itch. sometimes its extremely itchy when it is dry also. sometimes i scratch it harshly because i can't help it and it become very flakey. i moisturize it often and use goldbond but that only provides temporary relief.
