669375 tn?1225747543 Hi It seems that it might be some dermatitic or eczematous rash. A reddish smooth rash is described as a macular rash. It can be caused directly or indirectly by stress, allergic reactions (hives) heat or sun exposure, bacterial, viral or fungal infections, underlying medical illness or medications. Scaling, blister formation, itching or ulceration may or may not accompany the rash.
Avatar n tn I have a rash on arms, insides leg,lower back, and hands, I am afraid could be related to acute hiv rash.Can you help? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/244673'>Yeast infection rash</a>.
Avatar n tn It is so unbearable that you have to scratch the spot (which has no tell-tale rash or mark) and only after ripping the upper layer of skin off does the itching ease. I have the same problem now in two or three areas which are covered in scar tissue. This got really out of hand a couple of summers ago, after sitting in the spring sun. Doc says it's down to Scabies, but told my wife same thing when she nearly died from liver infection.
Avatar n tn this can be a sign of a plant rash, or enviromental rash.

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 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 You must have completely clean skin without any creams or oils present in order for it to soak into the skin. It seems to deaden the nerve endings just under the skin where all the itching starts. The drug insert calls it a skin analgesic mostly used for children when starting an IV to ease the pain. It warns not to use on skin that is not intact, or open sores, so this is definitely for those of us that have no visible rash or sores.

Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex with a new partner about five weeks ago and I recently developed about ten small red dots on my arms. They are pretty spaced apart but they are on both arms and a few on my back. I have a history of dry skin and dermatitis issues but I'm still somewhat concerned about the HIV rash. Is this description at all indicative of something I should be concerned about? How does the rash usually manifest?
Avatar f tn Hi I understand how distressing this one is for you. Rash and pruritus may be due to several factors. Superficial skin conditions like dermatitis, allergies and eczema may be considered in your case. This has been present for years which is expected of dermatitic skin conditions. Thus, the chronicity of your condition may highly suggest that this may be dermatitis. A skin allergy test may be done to identify possible triggers. Also, applying Fluocinonide 0.

Avatar f tn ve tried this benadryl cream suggested from the pharmacy and it seems to relieve the itching for at least two hours. and the rash that comes on my skin when I scratch is little teeny tiny white bubbles in small patches mostly on my wrist(upper side) my elbows and ankles. The itching hasn't spread anywhere else.
Avatar m tn but neither could identify the rash, i am now waiting on blood and urine tests, the rash is worse the the arches and side of feet/ankles, they started deep under the skin and like u said are starting too itch, I am hoping they grow out?
Avatar f tn And lots of them.. I looked online but it spread hsv outbreaks come on one side of the body my rash is on both arms and the inner thigh of my right leg it is now spreading to my left hand...
Avatar m tn Everytime I go in my pool I get a rash. It is on my upper legs and under my arms from the armpit to the wrist. It looks like a bunch of little bug bites and itches terrribly. No one else that gets in the pool gets anything like this including my one year old. Again this happens everytime I swim. It only happens in these two places everytime also. I never get it anywhere else. My pool is a chlorinated pool.
Avatar f tn I have noticed that the past few months I have developed a skin rash on parts of my body now I am constantly itching and I feel like its the stress of trying to quit Percocet.. Could it be a health condition due to taking too many perc? I take between 8-10... 5Mg, pills a day I am tapering off to 7 and then goinna go from there down?
Avatar f tn Hi! A couple weeks ago i got a tiny rash on my wrists and they started iching and moved to my forearms. Then I noticed the bumps on under my leg where the joint is. I used an antihistamine creams to sooth the itch and the rash eventually went away. Then yesterday, the rash came back. It's itchier and only on my forearms. What could be the cause of this itchy rash? I'm thinking it might be that I drank Lemonaid or I also did the dishes and used rubber gloves that go up to my elbows.
1847172 tn?1319047269 Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. Initially, a primary plaque, called a herald patch, is seen.
669375 tn?1225747543 You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.
