Rash on just arms and legs

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on just arms and legs


Avatar n tn It first started with a small area on my right arm but the rash became bigger, then on both my arms and now on the front of my leg. The bumps look like pimples and got inflamed/raised like a small mosquito bite when scratched. It fits all the descriptions of a heat rash but it has been a week now and they are not on the neck, in the groin, under the breasts, or in elbow creases. Just on my arms and legs!
Avatar m tn Last Friday night, my legs started to burn. The next day, it didn't go away so I got worried. Tuesday, I went to the doctor and told him about it, he said I was stressed out too much. I have been stressed out recently(check out the other topic I created). Wednesday night, I took a shower for the first time since this happened. I was too scared to go before. When I came out I noticed redness wrapped around my knee. It took maybe about 30 minutes for it to return to normal skin color.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 24 years old and for the past two weeks I've been itching like CRAZY only on my legs and arms. it started on my arms, I've not changed any soaps, I don't use fabric softener, I've washed everything I own just in case of allergic reaction, When I scratch these white rash-like bumps show up all over my arms andlegs, it's worse at night to the point where I can't sleep.
Avatar f tn tonight, my legs were itchy and i noticed small, itchy red bumps on my legs and arms that look nothing like my previous rash and i am very worried about this new rash. it has been a month now and i just want it all to go away. any help would be much appreciated!
Avatar m tn There is no rash or any sign of irritation and is mostly on my lower legs and arms but sometimes can be on the upper. There is no itching on any other part of my body. The itching feels almost like pins and needles. It seems to get irritated after I shower or swim or my body temperature increases with exercise but mostly water is the common cause of it starting. However there are times when it will just start with nothing to irritate it.
Avatar n tn i have had these red dots all over my legs/arms for a while now. i haven't gone to a doctor about it yet.. i'm 13 years old and haven't been able to wear any leg revealing clothes for a year now because of this. i put a picture up of what's on my legs and it's pretty much the same thing on my arms. i do wear loose fit clothes whenever i'm home now though (my mom told me it could be skin irritation caused by tight pants) and i'm home pretty much every day but weekends.
Avatar n tn Oatmeal baths, and liberal application of emollients containing glycerine should do.
Avatar m tn 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? Again, it's a holiday weekend so I don't know what our chances are of getting an appointment with a specialist.

Avatar n tn I have a daughter who is 10 years of age and she has so many tiny bumps on her legs and arms. She couldn't helped to scrach those bumps and now those bumps are bleeding. Is there any suggestion for the cure?
Avatar m tn Let me say thank you for helping me out with this and also apologize if this is a bit lenghty. About 3 weeks ago (oct 8ish) i started with this itchy rash on my arms (outter and inner bicep area). It was just red itchy bumps. Now being a bit of a hypochondirac lol i got all nervous and didnt know what it could be. There was no pus or anything like that just patches of itchy bumbs.
Avatar m tn itchy red rash on both hips, buttocks, and scrotum. The rash is red and extremely itchy and uncomfortable. Random small, blistery hive breakouts on wrists, arms, back of legs, stomach, and chest. Symptoms persisting for 10 months. 33 year old male. About 10 months ago, I got a red itchy rash on my right hip. It persisted for about a month and then went away for a while and I thought that was the end of it.
Avatar f tn I had hives that were just hives, but they were only on arms legs and upper chest.
Avatar n tn I have severe itching on my arms and legs. I have no rash, no allergies, absolutely nothing on my skin. As others have mentioned, it usually starts after a shower or bath, but it can happen on its own or if something brushes up against my skin.I start itching and one itch leads to another until I'm going crazy for relief. I have my own theory. I believe its nerves or nerve itching.
Avatar f tn Hi! I've had a recurrent rash for over 4 years now. Actually, I think it is there year-long but flares in the early spring (Feb/March) and is more visible and itchy throughout the summer, returning to a low level in the fall and winter. The sequence is as follows: in Feb/Mar I get red circular patches at the corner of my mouth running down diagonally between mu chin and cheek (mostly on one side). I may get other small flares, but this is the main patch.
Avatar f tn In my sleep though, I began to itch it, and now what looks like a rash that is covered by a scab surrounds the scar of the former cut. The same rash is on my left and right knees, the back of both of my legs, my elbows, my inner thighs, my lower stomach, and part of my neck. I'm wondering if the itching is causing the spread, but nothing I do seems to heal it. What can I do to help this annoying rash heal quickly?
Avatar n tn Shamefully, for almost 8 years I have been getting very small itchy blisters on various spots on my arms and legs. The small blisters develop and immediately itch intensely, which is how I know they're there. They have a clear fluid inside, with no puss. When I scratch them in my sleep or when they break, they often weep a little amber colored liquid. Also, when I scratch them, more tiny blisters will develop around the original blister, signifying an infection.
Avatar m tn One of the reasons why I was so concerned is that after googling about my rash, and finding information on the Internet on whether HIV rashes itch or not, I have found some sites where they say that it does rash, so that was confusing me a lot. May I ask a follow-up question on this? you seem to be pretty certain that it does not itch, can you provide more background on your answer please?
Avatar m tn The next day the rash worsened on my legs, and my knees and legs became swollen. My knees appeared more violet and were warm to the touch. Two days after that, I woke up with the rash on my face, hands, arms, and legs. My feet were swollen and red, my knees were swollen and warm to the touch and my hands were so swollen I could not make a fist. My face, cheeks, and nose also became red and warm.
Avatar n tn I've had a rash appear over night initially on my thighs and on my elbows and then the next day spread to my arms, hands, and armpits as well. I have no clue to the cause of this rash. The rash appears red and blotchy with a constant itch that is lessened by taking an allergy medication.
Avatar m tn Along my waistline, on my lower back from my waist about half way up my back, the side of my upper legs, sternum area, on my upper back localized on the sides just under my armpits. Sometimes it is bad in one or more of these areas, sometimes it switches around. I have never had it in my lower legs, feet, arms, head, face, back of legs... At first I thought maybe this is because that is where my clothes touch my skin and maybe this is a detergent thing, but I am not sure...
