Avatar m tn Ive had on and off mild itchy skin for a while now. At first my doctor thought it might be lymphoma itch. However, my CT scan test results said "no significant hilar,axillary and mediastinal lymphadenopathy". So my doctors ruled lymphoma out. My GI doc says I might have IBS or a mild IBD but my diarrhea symptoms are controlled with immodium. The itch itself is mild, its mostly on legs and back. If theres an itch on my back so I scratch it then it will return somewhere else on my body.
Avatar f tn I've been having problems with dry itchy skin too. Swith to an ultra moisturizing cream instead of a lotion and take cool showers as warm water drys your skin out. Udder balm works well for me, you find it at stores like Menards. It's thick and creamy, it was originally created for cow udders lol but people use it too.
Avatar f tn Drinking plenty of water will help to keep your pores clean from the inside out, help eliminate toxins, and keep your skin moisturized. Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and supplements of iron (if you're a female), and omegas 3-6-9 are all skin-friendly. Just be sure not to exceed the recommended daily dosage, as it can be toxic. Any new skin regimen you try should be given at least six weeks, especially given the severity of your acne.
Avatar f tn Hi! Wondering what have people found to help with the itchy skin. Thanks!
606428 tn?1220238336 here is a post i just made this mourning about itchy legs and skin with no rash hope it helps! Are you guys ready for this?! I have figured it out! Im just like everyone here I have been itching my legs for over three years now and hating every minute of it. My girlfriend cant sleep good at night and I cant sleep at all. All of you are right about how to treat it and im going to tell you why. I just figured it out after I saw these posts and talked to a random person that i knew.
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 f 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). Other conditions like psoriasis,dermatitis and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics and certain foods can cause itchy skin. She can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used.
Avatar n tn For the past 2 months I have had really itchy skin, especially on my legs. I itch all the time and I am also bruising easily. My legs have been covered with bruises (spots all over) for the past 2 months. I think that I am giving myself the bruises by itching my skin so hard, but I usually don't bruise easily. I am not taking any medications and as far as I know I do not have any allergies. I have also not changed any soaps or detergents or my diet.
Avatar m tn On Ribavarin, Interferon and Procrit. Went to ER twice because my skin is incredibly itchy (all over body) with no rash. On Benadryl & prescription strength antihistamine, cortisone cream, benadryl cream. Not help much at all! going mad!!!! does anyone know of anything that will provide some relief? Thanks!!
Avatar m tn But right now we've been using the dermacton shampoo bar, cream and spray on our dogs intense itchy areas, rashy bumps and flacks skin and it's looking great. I definently will continue with these products! Check out the website and see for urself and spread the word cuz this stuff REALLY DOES WORK:)!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn incredibly itchy skin after shower I hve changed sops, detergents, cleaners, lotions oils, showers, filters shower heads, water tempeture, and i still have the problem. no rash or any visable systems. It does not bother me as uch if I go wrk out before the shower. but ususlly so bad I can cry and nothing seems to help. can anyone give me good suggestions.
Avatar m tn hey wussup had the same problem for a couple months, but found a solution use coconut oil after a few weeks of applying it now the skin is back to normal no more dry itchy flacky skin.
Avatar m tn Crohn's disease may also involve the skin, blood, and endocrine system. This could explain your itchy legs. One type of skin manifestation, erythema nodosum, presents as red nodules usually appearing on the shins. Erythema nodosum is an inflammation of the fat cells under the skin which causes tender, red nodules that are usually seen on both shins.
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.
Avatar n tn There are no bumps, no rashes; i itch just the same whether or not my skin looks dry; the itching is eratic, everywhere at once. The only descriptor I can find is "electric" - I feel like I'm being shocked or tased all over. Sometimes it spreads to my chest, shoulders and arms a bit too. All I can do is spray solarcaine (benzocaine active ingrediant) all over and use oils and lotions.
Avatar n tn She should be tested for lyme disease. My entire family has lyme and we all have the itching sensation along with joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, neck tightness and many more symptoms. Lyme effects the nervous system and can cause these conditions. No bulls eye rash required to have lyme. You can also show up negative on testing and still have it. The testing is very poor for lyme disease so the best way to be sure is to see a lyme specialist. This is something to consider as a possibility.
Avatar f tn Why im I sooooo itchy my whole body is itchy!!!!!! Seriously im starting to worryyy!!!
Avatar f tn Remove all other sources of possible irritation-- treat dry skin, avoid bug bites and sunburn and itchy clothing and bedclothes. 3. Take B-complex vitamins every day. 4. (I take blessed thistle aka milk thistle everyday and it may or may not help.) 5. Know that it will come and go. Last year I was in remission for several blessed months, now it's back. Above all, you will have to set your mind to not itch and not think about it. That has helped more than anything.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone! There used to be an 'itchy arm' forum started in 2000 on PiA, but was disbanned today. Anyway, I was a member there since 2008 and have had itchy arms for 8 years myself. Thank goodness I found out what was causing mine after 7 years. I did ALOT of research and found out about brachioradial pruritus and it's various causes. Many of the "Deep" itches talked about are actually nerve related which is why neurontin helps. It's also why ice helps...
Avatar f tn I don't know if I am affected by the lack of sunlight and coldness (plus the stress of the Christmas season), my itchy joint and skin are acting up. My face feels buring and cracking. When I googled itchy joint, it popped up autoimmune disease. Wow. this is so right on. Whether it is stresses from food, weather, emotion..., our bodies are so sensitive. I hate this. I go for massage once a week, and I find it helps. Thanks for this forum.
Avatar n tn My mother-in-law said this was some deficient of vitamins. I posted this on the acne site but I am not getting a response so now I am posting this on Womens health. Can someone give me an idea of what this can be?
Avatar n tn My husbands eyelids are itchy cracked and even sometimes bleed. He takes an antihistimine daily and proper vitamins. He puts neosporin on them every morning. What else besides warm compresses, he does work everyday, can we do??
Avatar n tn now i have this burn on my wrist and it's turned into a wound with small red lumps surrounding it. and it itches like crazy. i also noticed that my neck is really itchy and has small bumps all the sudden. it's like my skin is getting more sensitive as i get older. im 26 and it only started doing this a year ago. please help! what am i (not) eating/shmearing/doing to make this happen?? thanks, Lori L.
Avatar f tn Is there something I can use OT that will get rid of the rashes? Can this cause by prenatal vitamins? Or Birth Control pills which I've been taking for so many yrs. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/240758'>Very itchy, red rash spreading from abdomen to arms, legs, neck and face...</a>.
Avatar m tn When I work out in the gym my skin turns red everywhere, sometimes even becomes itchy. I can touch my self with one finger and watch my skin turn another shade, just from a small amount of preasure, such as a light touch. I get strech marks very, very easily, and they're not a lot of small thin ones like I see everyone else with, I'll get just a couple (3-4) dark and thick ones in areas. Is there anything I can do just to strengthan my skin? Make it become more resistant I guess? Healthier?
Avatar n tn These are easily covered with foundation so are not a major problem. But now I have found that I have very dry itchy skin round my eyes, cheeks, and on the edge of my scalp / forehead. Also down one arm. Can anyone recommend anythings to help?
