Avatar m tn I have numerous small, itchy patches of skin that feel almost like a dry skin spot. The Doc presrcribed a steroidal anti-itch cream which helps the itching, but it doesn't go away. Eventually, they will turn red, some will not.
7639611 tn?1392880861 )The past few weeks, I've been experiencing itchy red patches of skin that look like a rash on my arms, hands, and legs. The skin on my forehead is red, irritated, dry and flaky, though not quite as itchy. The skin all around my eyes is also red, irritated, dry and flaky. Oh, and my nipples are cracking. I use a humidifier, and I've tried applying Allegra cream, Vaseline, and Neosporin. I've also been taking Allegra orally. I wash my sheets, vacuum, and keep my living environment clean.
Avatar f tn Vitiligo is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn I have had itchy, dry patches all over my upper chest, neck, and upper back, with a few extending to my underarms, lower back, and lower abdomen for over a month, almost a month and a half now. They were very red when they started, a few of them tan-ish, and not near as itchy as they are now. Now they are smaller patches, pinkish, and very itchy. They change a little very day. I have tried antihistamines and cortisone ointment, but that didn't help at all, so it isn't an allergy.
Avatar f tn For the past month or so, I have been getting random itchy patches on my legs and feet. They come very suddenly, usually at night, and last for about 10-30 minutes, and there is occasionally redness or small raised bumps but sometimes, other than the itching, nothing seems to be wrong. At first I thought that it might be some sort of bug bite, but it is so inconsistent that I don't think that is the case. Some days it doesn't happen at all, and some days my entire leg feels itchy.
Avatar f tn Has anybody else been experiencing itchy skin? And not like the stomach or breast area but like the neck and chest???
Avatar f tn On my arms and legs sometimes I have patches of dry skin, sometimes they get inflamed and become very itchy and red, nothing seems to work. The ones on my arm leave my skin white where the patch was. Awhile ago I've been noticing that the patches have been starting to form around my cheeks and my chin. I've visited many doctors for my skin, and they've all been left puzzled. They have diagnosed me with enzyme and I have been prescribed many creams and pills.. Which haven't helped at all.
Avatar n tn I have dry red itchy patches on my breasts that only appear in the winter - dryer seasons. Could you advise what this could be.
Avatar f tn you need to see a doctor for a diagnosis.
Avatar m tn I have raised red patches on breast, not itchy or painful. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/658864'>i have some red bumps on breast </a>.
Avatar f tn Hey all, I have a few small dry skin patches on my neck. They're so itchy! :( I'm not sure if this is because of pregnancy? Apparently skin changes due to the hormones in our bodies? I'm 5 months along.
Avatar n tn Over the past 6 months, my skin has become increasingly "itchy". It started on my legs and has ultimately found it's way to my scalp. Its noticable after showers (med. in temperature), water on skin will sometimes make it itch. After an "outbreak" about 20 minutes later it stops itching and all looks/feels fine. It appears to be the hair follicle that is raised and irritated and it loks like several small bumps in patches. I can not issolate what casues the outbreak.
Avatar n tn i have white patches on my face for the past few years already they are a bit rough(or at least make my skin a bit rough) but not they aren't itchy or irritating in any way. What am i suffering from and how can i help cure it? will infra red light help?
1660902 tn?1302624156 I have always had very dry itchy skin so I have to use lotion on my skin after every shower. After I apply the lotion and my skin cools down the patches dissappear. These patches do not hurt and they are not itchy. I did a little research on psoriasis and found out that they can be triggered by beta blockers, and I have been on a beta blocker (propranolol) for the past 5 years. Does it sound like I have a mild case of psoriasis or something else?
Avatar n tn When I looked at the area today, I noticed its discoloured and there's brown blotches on my skin. I was wondering what was happening with my skin and what I can do? Are these discoloured patches permenant now? And how can I make the itching stop? Hope to hear from you soon, thank you very much...
Avatar m tn I have dark skin patches that appear to be tough in nature. I have one below the knee cap on the front bone, on the lateral top side of my right foot and on the lateral front side of my left ankle. The knee one is the most embarrassing one because it looks like dirty skin. Like I said, they are very tough, not much sensation when I scratch them. They are not itchy or irritated just annoying and unsightly. What could these be and how do I get rid of them?
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 m tn I'm 20 years old, male, and about 7 months ago I noticed some circular patches on my skin. They look slightly brown and almost dry, but are not itchy and don't appear to be visibly raised above the skin. I have about 4 across my stomach and a couple on my chest, all of which are quite small (half a cm).
Avatar f tn You may need to have this assessed first as fungal infections may also present as dry patches of skin which may actually be itchy (but not always). Did these dry skin patches appear only after taking the pills?
Avatar n tn org/posts/Dermatology/dark-patches-on-my-forehead/show/459993 but unfortunatley there wasn't an answer to this that seemed to fit. my skin is also not itchy and i don't have allergies to anything except for hayfever. i hope you can reply with additional help.
