Rash on ankles

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on ankles


1815939 tn?1377991799 What would be best to use on it? I am not excited about putting that greasy fluocinomide ointment on it. I already use very mild organic herbal shampoo. I could probably live with it if it did not get worse at night and itch like crazy, just like the other hot spots on my legs and ankles. I thought maybe someone on the forum has found a good remedy for Riba rash on the scalp.
Avatar m tn I have a rash on my left and right ankle that i have had for about two years now. It covers just about the whole ankle area. When the area is dry it itches. I scratch the area and the dry skin comes off. I have tried lotions and also Mupirocin and nothing works. Can one of you Doctors answer this for me????
Avatar n tn I just started getting a rash on the inside of my ankles? First time was on a very hot day, on my feet for a long visit to Disneyland, I was wearing a new pair of socks, some synthetic material that I didn't wash before wearing! Now I have it again!? This time it wasn't as hot, but the same area (inside of ankles) and synthetic socks that I had worn many times prior without a reaction? This rash doesn't itch or really hurt but it takes a least a week to fade!

Avatar m tn Thanks for your reply and suggestion. Let me clear it once, the red rash has no pain. But i have pain on ankles mostly in day time. Some small dot like brown rashes sre there near both ankles and one day I noticed a bog circular red rash on lower leg. And some more rashes like the same appeared and changed there color to brown and some disappeared. Even though, in sun light, i feel some part of my leg in reg color as leakage of blood inside the skin.
Avatar n tn Luckily the doctor I went to recognized the blood pressure medicine I was on (Amlodipine) is known for swelling ankles. The brown discoloration is caused by the swelling. I looked it up and swelling of the ankle area was the most prevalent side effect for amlodipine. Thirteen percent of users experienced swelling. So the doc was right. I got off amlodipine 2 months ago and have not had an episode of swelling since. It may take years for the brown to totally fade.
Avatar m tn Just yesterday I woke up with sores on my hands and fingers. The same sores are on my feet, elbows, ankles, and knees. They are small and red and focus mostly on the joints. These sores are very painful and feel like blisters. What are they and what can I do about them. I can't go to a doctor, because I have no insurance.

Avatar m tn ve been experiencing a rash that comes and goes in about 10-15 minutes. The rash involves tiny red spots, not raised, that show up on my ankles and wrists, and to a lesser extent the rest of my body. They are VERY itchy and painful! They seem to flare up when I start doing movement - going walking, running, working out. They also flare up when I get nervous or excited. Last week I was working with an electric sander and my ankles were breaking out. When I stopped, it would stop itching.
Avatar f tn She diagnosed me with Candida and I went on a special diet, started to take all these pills when I stopped I began to itch on my ankles my heartburn came back and several other symtoms. Could this be that my body enjoyed being clean and not eating ****? And now I am having allergic reactions??

Avatar f tn Anybody had a red/ itchy/ hot rash on the ankles that travels up both legs?
Avatar n tn Three months ago was at strip club getting a dance, girl pulled out penis and spit on it for lubrication. Couple weeks later starting getting numerous mouth ulcers and a little rash on stomach and ankles. I also had a sinus infection at the time of incidence, dont know if that matters. Has anyone ever gotten hiv from this type of situatuion.
Avatar m tn The next day he woke up with swollen ankles and small rash. Every day the rash and swelling has gotten worse. It has spread up his legs and on his arms. One morning he felt so faint and nauseous. His muscles and joints hurt for 3 days. He saw four doctors who have no idea what he has. He had a biopsy done but, with the long weekend we won't know for a few more days. I'm wondering since it's getting worse every day- should he go to the hospital?
Avatar n tn My husband has got these brown spots on the tops of his feet that look like a rash but they have been there for almost 9months now. They dont bother him ( no itching or anything.). They look almost like freckles but not quite. They are spreading over time. At first it was just the tops of feet and a little on the ankles but now it's spreading up his leg. He is obese and I didn't know if that may be the cause. Anyone know what this could be?
Avatar f tn I have a rash, kinda looks like a razor rash, it hurts to the touch. Feels like bruising underneath but not discolored like a bruise would be. I dont have any insurance and it is hard to see a doc. Just wondering if anyone else ever had these symptoms. Oh, and in the morning when I get out of bed and walk my ankles feel like they are burning, on fire.
Avatar f tn I walked thru wet grass with sands!s on. It came up as small nettle rash but has spread and my ankles have swollen. I've had it for 5 days.. Can anyone help?
Avatar m tn My son is 9 years old. Yesterday he came home from school with a red rash on his forearms and inner thighs that almost look like welts. They are raised but not itchy. He is also complaining that his ankles/ feet and legs are sore. He is limping around and finding it painful to walk. I have given him nurofen, polaramine and phenergan to try to get rid of rash and pain. None are working. Today his ankles appear to have fluid in them and he is still in pain walking. Are these growing pains?
Avatar n tn I too have had rashes on my joints for years. I have mentioned it to doctors at times and they never have any idea. I guess that is usually what happens to me when I go to the doctor, I am always a mystery. I get bumps on my knuckles, elbows and sometimes my knees or wrists. It have just learned to live with it and generally doesn't bother me to much but I have always wondered why just my joints. Let me know if you ever find anything out.
Avatar f tn OK so I have really bad ackles and they cave in but now I have this rash on my foot that is bright pink and if you look closely you can see it pulsing red it used to be the size of a 50 cent coin but know it spreaded to the side of my foot to the bottom and it is starting to make small red dots up my ankle and my dad had to get his legs cut off because of his ankles and his sores but I want to know is it because of my ankle braces or a medical condition fyi I'm only 12 and in track and my fo
Avatar m tn Not for sure what this is. About a week ago I got small bump like , red, itchy spots on both lower legs...on my ankles up about 10" onto my calves. I thought at first fleas in the house maybe....but after putting out a flea trap, nothing. In fact there are so many, it can't be bugs...in less it is some type of mite or something. I sit at the computer alot at night...my wife does some, but nothing on her. A few weeks ago, I did a little money detecting...
765295 tn?1234622359 He does get some pain in his ankles and weakness in his legs after the rash erupts and begins to clear, but the rash itself is neither painful nor itchy (thank heavens). I really do appreciate your thoughts and if you have any other ideas, that would be great. Our first physician was so defensive and trying so hard to explain to me that it was not meningitis, which I knew, that she would not listen to me or my son.
Avatar m tn My son a 2 and half years old suddenly showed rash on his arms from the wrists till above the elbows and on his legs from around the ankles to mid thighs or higher. He has been on antihistaminic for 4 days now and we were not able to identify the cause, yet the rash didn't disappear.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am a 31 year old male and I took 2 doses of fluconazole to treat a yeast infection, I now have a rash coming up on the bottom of my feet only on the arches , ankles, wrist, hands, and arms. They are small flat head and raised like blisters but don't seem to be filled with fluid and doesn't really itch, can the fluconazole cause this skin reaction?

Avatar f tn Anyone out there dealing with rash issues? I developed a rash on the top of my hands and the top of my feet. They are lots of scattered little bumps all over, flesh colored (until I scratch the crap out of them) and itch like crazy. The itching feet keep me up at night where the only relief is an ice pack. Cortisone cream was useless. I tried benadryl, but I'm not sure if it did anything. One GP doc said scabies. A second GP doc said it may be scabies, but couldn't be sure.
Avatar m tn I've had these brown that appeared a couple of years ago now on my feet and ankles. They appeared out of nowhere and seem to be getting slightly worse as time goes on, they are starting to move up my lower leg now and i get red dots on my legs that look a little like a heat rash.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a rash that appears mostly in the summer months. It appears on my knees and ankles mostly but can also be seen on legs and feet. It's raised red spots which appear to have white around them. It has come back every year for about 6 years. I live in Ireland so the climate can get warm but not very warm and not very often. When i get to the doctor it has disappeared. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Avatar f tn My 95 year old mother has had a rash with occasional open sores on her ankles and lower calves. It seems to be climbing up the calf on both legs. Her feet get small red bumps, but her ankle takes the brunt of the rash. She is not diabetic, is not bedridden, has had an ankle brachial test that came out fine. She's had 9 other blood tests that also came out fine. She's had a carotid artery test which also came out ok for a 95 year old.
