Avatar m tn Hi everyone, I have been getting pollen allergies increasing in severity for the last 5 years or so. This years tree pollen season has started here, and I'm getting my butt kicked. What is really worrying me is that I seem to be getting a systemic reaction to it now. I am taking a daily 10mg loratadine which just about lets me see and breathe, cuts nasal irritation, eye itchiness and watering, but still have puffiness and can still "feel" the effects... fine you say, you're good...
Avatar n tn Applying a moisturizer and using only soaps that are gentle on the skin is helpful in this case. Hypothyroidism too causes dry skin. Please get your thyroid function checked. It could also be due to overuse of AC and heaters. If you have blisters at tip of fingers and dry skin then you need to rule out certain conditions such as diabetes, psoriasis, hypothyroidism, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis and malnutrition. Generalized itching can be due to allergy.

975357 tn?1252708323 Problem is, I went to an allergist, and he tried to do the skin scratch test and stopped and told me my skin was dermatographic and that the test would generate false positives on everything. He did a east panel, but it was for mostly food allergies not pollen and outdoor allergens. So how do I go about finding out what I am allergic to in order to be able to get immunotherapy. Apparently, about 4% of people have this..
Avatar f tn One of the nurses at my allergist and a few friends have experienced the same thing. Their thoughts are that is it a pollen allergy. My symptoms were when pollen counts were soaring in the high catgory, especially oak pollen where I live. Also, I would be fine if I stayed indoors for the whole day, but if I went outside for anything even for just a few seconds... Feel better.
Avatar f tn I recently became itchy on the base of my neck, i discovered what felt like bites, i ignored it and just kept on scratching, then my hips became itchy and upon a doctors visit i discovered i had scratched my hip so much it had become an open wound and it was starting on the other side, now it has gone from head (still itchy) but it is on my fore arms, my back, my knees, behind my knees, shoulders and my lower legs, the doctor i saw prescribed a steroid cream which has kind of helped with the itc
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 n tn When I was a young girl I developed itchy skin in the spring and early summer months. For years my parents assumed it was an allergy to pollen, however now in my 20's I have discovered (through process of elimination) that it is due to sun exposure. And with each new year the problem has intensified and been worse than the previous year. The itch occurs only upon direct contact from the sun; for example, when I wear long sleeves my arms will not itch because clothing is blocking the rays.
Avatar m tn hello there! i am a 14 year old boy.. my skin has been itchy and it is sorta hard to swallow my own spit only like when im just laying around..like on the left side of my chest on my nipple and just like three pimple things above my nipple. they look like pimples but itch and they looked like a pimple but in the center of them looked like a small black needle in the middle in each one.. dont want to go to the dr. plz help me worried!! tell me what i should do! please!
Avatar n tn They are about the size of a small pimple. Some are red, some are skin colored. My skin has been itchy all over, not just my stomach. I thought it was an allergic reaction, so I took some Benadryl last night before I went to sleep. When I woke up this morning, they were still there. Now they are all over my thighs too, and a couple on my arms. The new ones are all skin colored. What could this be and how do I get rid of it?

Avatar n tn I have been dealing with the itchy arms for the past 4 years. It starts in August and lasts a few months. Last night was by far the worst it has ever been! I live in the Cincinnati area. The itching is a deep prickly feeling with no visible signs on the skin. The more you scratch the worse it gets. It is so frustrating and No doctor seems to have a clue what it is!!! It is on my arms, from the wrist to my shoulders. but now it has been on my neck as well.
1040102 tn?1253007657 I have had itchy arms for 20 years. There is no rash, scaling, or anything. It can come on at any time of the year and usually lasts for 6 to 8 weeks. The more I scratch to more it stings and burns. It feels like someone is sticking me repeatedly with a needle. Its driving me crazy!!!! can anyone help. I have heard I could possibly need a neurologist.My arms will bleed I scratch so much. Ice gel packs help more anything Ive tried.

Avatar f tn I had open heart surgery for aortic valve replacement 7 months ago. I have been itchy since that time. It comes mostly in the evening, when I am tired and usually about 3 to 4 times per week. I am taking Atarax for it. What type of doctor should I contact for this condition. I have read that it could be caused by thyroid, is this true?
Avatar m tn For the past few years I have noticed res spots on my back that over time grow together and now cover a majority of my back and just recently I have been getting similar red spots in my inner arm between my forearm and bicep also on my neck and chest. Sometimes they can become itchy usally when it's warm or hot.
Avatar f tn I recommend taking your dog to your veterinarian for examination and treatment. The most common reasons for itchy skin in dogs include skin infections, microscopic skin parasites such as fleas, scabies or demodex mites, food allergy, or pollen/dust allergies. Dogs with fleas or allergies commonly scratch and traumatize themselves, creating secondary bacterial skin infections/rash and hotspots that make the itch worse.
Avatar n tn I recommend starting by taking your dog to your veterinarian for assessment of the itch and medication recommendations. The most common reasons for itchy skin in dogs include skin infections, microscopic skin parasites such as scabies mites, food allergy, or pollen/dust allergies. Since scabies mites are difficult to find, I trial treat dogs for scabies with Revolution every 2 weeks for 3 treatments.
Avatar m tn My 16 month old daughter has a non itchy rash on her legs and arms. It is raised and red. It has been there for atleast 5 months and nothing has seemed to make it better. If I have her in the car and then we go in somewhere people think she is sunburned. I have had her allergy tested to see if she was allergic to any foods she has been eating and all foods came back negative. She was mildly allergic to dog, grass, mold, and dust.
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. 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 dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.

Avatar m tn Our old boy has been going through bouts of itchy red circles all over his body. These areas lose fur and are scabby in the middle. It seems to get worse when the weather begins to warm up (maybe pollen?). He has been tested for allergies and he is allergic to just about everything. We have to cook his food specifically to avoid any problems as there is no ready made dog food that he can eat.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Such outbreaks are generally viral or allergic in nature. Red itchy bumps all over the body can be due to viral rashes like shingles or herpes or chicken pox (unlikely as you do not have fever). Fungal infections too mimic these type of bumps. It could also be urticaria or hives. The swellings or wheals produced after itching can be pale (of skin color) or red.
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.
323551 tn?1255178350 No other real symptoms either except for some chest congestion ( i have asthma). I was skin tested about 5 years ago and tested positive only for tree pollen and dust mites. No rash, blisters, etc. just itchyness and it gets worse near bedtime. No signs of bug bites either. This is sthe second night in the row that I have been awaken by this itchy sensation. Any suggestions? Creams and Clairitin don't seem to help. This has been going on now for about 2 months.
