Avatar n tn For the past week or so i have had itchy skin all over but mainly on my arms and legs, it feels like something is on my skin and every now and then it feels like a pin is sticking in me. Its driving me mad.
Avatar f tn s mostly my head that is itchy but so is my body. I have no hives or rashes or scaly skin. Dermatologist gave me a medicated shampoo and said it could be dermatitis. It doesn't help at all. Already went through 2 bottles of it. I am beside myself. Can I have something wrong with me internally? Can stress cause this itching? I take benedry, but it doesn't help. I have cortizone cream but doesn't help. Don't know what to do. Any answers out there???
Avatar f tn An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of your face. If your skin becomes red or peels, you are using too much of the medicine or applying it too often. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Your probably itchy because your skin is stretching don't scratch! And little red bumps come in before stretch marks.
Avatar f tn Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes and most of them are idiopathic. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used, whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid.
Avatar f tn Is anyone else having this problem? I am 29 weeks and 5 days along in my pregnancy and for the past couple days I've experienced extremely itchy skin. I have noticed that my feet in my palms of my hands are more itchy than normal. I have read on the internet that could be bile from your liver? So I was wondering if anybody else has experienced this I am going to consult my doctor today and see what he says.
Avatar n tn Hi there I have been using medicine for flu allergy due to pollens may be for 2 months..using bc pills as well..

Avatar f tn My skin got so bad and itchy from growing my doctor told me go ahead and take a benadryl. I don't really like to take too much medicine but it got to the point i couldn't even sleep at night.
Avatar n tn Itchy skin is common in pregnancy...generally because the skin is stretching. I know it's hard but try not to scratch as it will only make things worse. Rub an oil or cream into them...something very gentle as they are so sensitive and raw already. An organic olive oil will work fine - gentle and a very cheap option compared to any cosmetic products. Once it's food grade it's definitely good enough for your skin.
Avatar m tn Skin conditions are tough. Doctors often forget to check for food allergies. This could be a gluten allergy. It could also be related to colitis, so if you have any intestinal symptoms, you need to get that checked out. Don't just let them give you an antiinflammatory cream to treat the symptom. Sometimes dermatologists are either lazy or clueless about food allergies and other causes of skin problems.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms the possibility of hives needs to be ruled out. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications.
Avatar m tn The best medical treatment for acne often is a combination of medicines. These could include medicine that you put on your skin (topical) and medicine that you take by mouth (oral). Or you may take medicines such as clindamycin/benzoyl peroxide, a gel that contains 2 topical medicines.
Avatar n tn Since last 2 days I am having rashes on my palm and those are itchy as well. Thinking of the fact it is allergic, I took cetrizine. But no repite. please help me out. and what kind of medicine will help me?

Avatar n tn I have white spots on my forearms and chest. The skin just feels dry but not itchy or any other symptoms. What could it be? Family doctor said it was due to age. Feel there is more it it.
Avatar f tn Idk if it's just a rash or what but I have alot of little itchy bumps on my stomach kinda by my breast .. nothing helps relieve the itching I have help anyone!!!
Avatar n tn m 25 years old. The last time I went to the doctor was Dec 07 about the itchy skin. They prescribed allergy medicine but I was about to lose insurance so I didn't take the prescription. Plus I felt the allergy med would just cover up the problem, not fix it. Lately I've been having bad headaches, especially on the top left side. Maybe I' not getting enough sleep.
Avatar n tn When i have an area thats itchy i put that on and it goes away and doesnt come back for a while. Its dry skin i believe thats causing your problem and in the winter everybodys skin get more dry so if you have sensative skin to begin with thatll happen. Even if it doesnt look dry try good lotion. I wouldnt use cheap or different scented stuff.
Avatar f tn After taking that medicine the itching was completely gone! But the skin is still light and no improvement. Please note that I only had white creamy discharge when I took those Oral fungal medicine. It has been like 2 months since i took all those prescriptions up there. Skin is still the same but no more itching on my perianal area so i decided to see my Dermatologist. I let her see the photos i took since it all started and she also check it out herself.

Avatar m tn I woke up one morning in a hotel room with two red bumps on the front of my neck below my adam's apple. These bumps are not itchy but do get more itchy when I touch or itch them. I've seen a doctor who thought they were superficial and allergy related.
