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 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 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 n tn Oatmeal baths, and liberal application of emollients containing glycerine should do.
Avatar m tn About a week ago, I had poison ivy on my neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs, but not on my elbows. I was prescribed Kenalog Cream, which reduced the poison ivy to basically scars. I thought I was bitten by a bug on my elbow a couple days later, and it went from looking like a bug bite to looking like the attached picture. Some of the raised, red welts have a small dark mark in the center, some don't. Is this still Poison Ivy, Oak, or Sumac, or something else?
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 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 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 I had hives that were just hives, but they were only on arms legs and upper chest.
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 f tn The affected area will often feel warm and can be extremely itchy or exhibit a burning sensation. Typically the rash occurs on the upper trunk and the arms but can appear on other parts of the body. The rash typically develops within a few minutes of a rise in body temperature but can take longer to appear visibly on the skin. The visible rash is often preceded by a general warming of the skin or itchiness.
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 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 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 f tn Hi!! I'm 22 weeks pregnant and a few days ago my legs broke on in tiny patches with little red itchy bumps. The rash is only on my legs and it itches like crazy and its an itch you can't scratch because if you do it only magnifys the itch causing me to scratch until my skin is raw! I have tried benedryll and zyrtec to no avail!! Anyone else have this? If so please help me!!
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 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 f tn i have had a rash on my arms, under my arms, my lower stomach, my thighs and behind my knees. it has been there for 4 weeks. i thought it was poison oak but have tried creams to clear it up and nothing has worked. now i have red blochy places all over the mentioned areas that itch so bad. i have scabs that itch. it doesnt look like its gettin worse, but its not getting much better. i am so tired of scratching and creams on it.
Avatar n tn My forearms itch me to death. No rash. Only the hair stands up straight on my arms. But the itch is not relieved by any antihistamines, no matter how many or how long I take them. I have been perscribed some topical treatments, however they are too temporary of relief too. Steroid pills helped while on them, but now im off and the itch is back. Guh! It has to be an allergic reaction to something?!
