Avatar n tn One said it was a fungus, one said it was a bacterial infection. I feel different than I used to, tired, depressed and uninterested in everything. This discussion is related to <a href=''>can't stop itching</a>.
Avatar n tn Well the antibiotics did not work so I returned a couple weeks later and by then the tiny red bumps had disappeared by the itching had become WAY more intense and in fact kept me up or woke me up in the middle of the night. There was nothing on my arms or legs but when I would itch of course a red rash would appear and I was releasing histamine like crazy. The doctor then prescribed me with a tapered dose of cortisone for 10 days. This worked for about 6 days then the itching slowly returned...
Avatar m tn In contact dermatitis exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to, can cause rash and itching. Scabies infection is caused by a mite Sarcoptesscabiei, it burrows in the skin folds of hands and feet and causes intense itching mostly at night. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor, who will examine you and may ask for blood tests and in addition examine the scrapings from the skin to arrive at a diagnosis for appropriate therapy.

Avatar n tn I had a kidney infection a few months ago. i recovered....very slowly! But for the past few weeks I have been having pain in the right kidney area again. Its not as bad as it was when i was in the hospital last time, but at times its bad. i went to my urologist who tested my urine. I did have white blood cells in my urine which indicates an infection, but the culture came back negative??? Tested again, and still negative. Is it possible that the test missed the infection twice??
Avatar n tn I'm not so certain that there is a dermatological source for the cited symptoms. I, too, recently had a severe bacterial infection of my ear, and developed the very-same symptoms - with uncontrollable itching of my hands & feet, which clears up with antihistamine. My worst bout occurred after I applied a hand moisturizer (Curel), leading me to believe that it was a contact allergy.

Avatar n tn Itching all over the body can be found in allergies, viral infection, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders, diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics and certain foods.You may take an antihistamine like Benadryl for relief in symptoms. Application of calamine lotion may provide a soothing effect.For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used, whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid.
Avatar n tn When I take Cipro antibotics the symptoms disapear as if I had a kidney infection but,when I give the doc a urnine sample, the doc has said there is not any signs of bacteria in the urine. But never the less I ask for the antibotics and I get better for a number of weeks then the symptoms reapear. I have had 2 bowel resections and Historectomy. Not much in there to remove. Has anyone had this happen to them and if so can you tell me if you found what was causing the problem and treatment?

Avatar m tn Hi, Im a 26 year old male.Ive been having kidney pains for nearly a year now. it started with a bladder infection which cleared up but I've been left with the pains in my kidneys. Ive had blood tests and ultrasound which are both showing nothing as well as STI tests. My symptoms are pain in the kidney areas which spreads round to the stomach. The pain is more a dull ache than a stabbing pain and it feels like it sometimes spreads up my back also.
Avatar f tn Alright so for quite some time now I have experienced a strange itching problem. Inside my labia Majora but not quite to the Labia Minora it itches. Just in between. Mostly on the inside of the labia majora in the crease where my lips close around everything. I thought perhaps it was because it was warmer so perhaps it was like a heat rash. It comes and goes. I went to the doctor and was given two different antibiotics as well as yeast infection pills (two that you take four days apart).

Avatar n tn My itching just started. I am not one to get a Yeast infection although I have had them before. Honestly I am going to try all the recommendations set above;however, I do want to add that in the past my PH has been "off" in that area. What was the solution.... sitting in a tub of 1/2 water and 1/2 concentrated Lysol cleaner. (cleaning isle of grocery store Wal-mart) 30 mins. at least. Of all things. Honestly, it has worked every single time!
Avatar m tn The symptoms being experienced by you could be due to several causes like urinary tract infection, diabetes mellitus, prostatitis, kidney stones, chlamydial infection, gonorrhea.Sometimes bad hygiene itself can lead to urinary tract infection and itching in the genitals and groin when bacterial overgrowth overwhelms the body’s immune system. I will advise you to seek the opinion of an experienced urologist .
Avatar f tn Your symptoms could be due to UTI, or urinary tract infection. The infection could be at any level from bladder to ureter to kidney. It could also be due to a stone in the urinary tract. You need to get your urine examined for infection. Your urologist will run a couple of tests including urine examination, a CT/ultrasound of abdomen to rule out stones and other causes. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Avatar n tn I think I might have an eye infection. The bottom of the inside of my eye lids are red and I often wake up with yellow gunk in my eye. I constantly feel as if something is in my eye. I wear contact lenses. And I wake up with crust on the bottom eye lashes.
Avatar n tn 0 it's indication of too acidic urine and potential of uric acid stones in kidney). 2) Make ultrasound of KUB (Kidney/Ureter/Bladder) for cysts and/or stones. 3) Make ultrasound of Scrotum/Prostate to detect any abnormalities (for example cysts, enlarged prostate). Put attention that every anti-biotic you have taken reduced your symptoms for a while. Therefore it could be a bacterial infection with a resistant bacteria (or worse encapsulated bacteria).
Avatar n tn About three months ago I developed what has been diagnosed by a urologist as a bacterial bladder infection in the left side of my bladder. Around the same time my left hip began itching, but there is absolutely no rash, visible swelling, bumps, or redness. Now I cannot lay on my left side or it highly irritates it. I visited another doctor who took xrays and says that is is likely bursitis in the hip, but does not understand the itching.
