The diagnosis is primarily based on the skin appearance and a history of exposure to an irritant or an allergen. Patch testing, skin lesion biopsy or culture of the skin lesion may rule out other casues. Wet dressings and soothing anti-itch or drying lotions may be recommended to reduce other symptoms.

The rash is now spread to all extremeties and now has large raised reddish purple spots with blisters. There is no itching, just some discomfort from the rash. Anyone had anything similar or have any ideas for me?
Avatar n tn Have all the exact same symptoms as stated in the previous discussion (Itchy legs, no sign of rash or irritation). Although there is initially no rash, one does occur after scratching the itchy area, the skin raises up into red spot until it becomes just one big thick skin area.
Avatar n tn My wife has had a recurring rash on her legs for about a year and a half now. we have been to a few doctors (no dermatologist) who have prescribed anti-biotics because they said it looked fungal. they have never helped. it will occasionally go away(not all of it but most of it) and then re-appear. she says it hurts when its really bad and itches all the time. it also makes the skin around the area look really dry to the point where it looks tight almost chapped.
Avatar f tn I've had a problem with my legs since about October 2009. I have been having a rash on my legs that look like small pimples or bites..If i pop one it comes out as if it were a black head. But it itches tremendously to the point that I can't sleep! I've gone to the dermatologist several times..and he's done numerous biopsy's on my legs and it come back to NOTHING! I am wondering if maybe it is bed bugs(EWWWW!)? How do I know if it is bed bugs?
Avatar f tn hi can anyone help me, i have an intense itch on my legs from the knee down, also itch through out my body but it would not be intense like my legs. there is no rash or spots, just itch i have tried tablets and cream but nothing seems to be working.
Avatar n tn Scabies is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. For exact diagnosis, I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

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.

I dont break out in a rash and it only happens on my legs but i cant take the itch anymore.I dont know why this happens.. anyone got any ideas? or how to get rid of this?
Avatar f tn Our 2 year old lab has a skin condition between his hind legs and his belly. It doesn't itch; he doesn't lick it. Some are red bumps and some look like pimples with whiteheads. It is not a heavy rash; each bump/pimple is surrounded by healthy skin without any irritation. Approximately 20 pimples are visible, about 5 of those have the whiteheads. We know he has pollen allergies that make his skin itchy; he had a cortisone shot and now he seems fine. The skin condition is new.
Avatar m tn My children (2 and 5) also suffer from itchy rash which sometimes appears on their backs, legs, faces, hands, etc. A Dermatologist diagnosed the rash as fungus and prescribed a cream. However, the itchy keeps appearing at different parts of their body. This morning I noticed clear painless and non-itchy blisters on the shaft of my penis. I have been diagnosed with HSV-2 and I know the tingling sensation during a breakout. What is the cause of the itchy blisters on my hand and on my children?
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 n tn I would say It is most likely dry skin and fabric irritating the skin. If the sweat pants arnt bothering you, it sounds linked to tight fabric, or the fabric resting and chafing on the skin at all times. That can just be irritating, or allergy to fabric detergents. Hopefully thats all, good luck!
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.
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.
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 n tn i dont know whats wrong but everytime my legs get in contact with the sun they start to get splotches on my legs and my legs start to get red in a short period of the time my legs are in the sun i dont know if its because for the summer i didnt go in the sun at all(little to none) or its because i wear no sunscreen on my legs or because i moved into a other place and when they get red my whole leg gets red splotches all over. Plase Help!
Avatar m tn itchy lower legs, no rash. The itch can be as severe as poison ivy at times, but, again, no rash. I have to wonder if this is due to an allergic reaction of some sort. For example, one hears a lot about gluten these days. I'm not a new-ager, but others in my immediate family have said that they have developed gluten sensitivity. Does a gluten sensitivity reaction always include a rash?
Avatar f tn I have developed a sudden skin rash on feet and legs below the knees. It is a round white spot with a red dot in the center. It does not itch. I am taking coumadin and plavix. Is this a sign of bleeding under the skin? I have also started having red marks, some size of dots and some larger and brown "age spots" on my skin. Anyone have similar condition? I was told to stay away from vitamin K because this effects the coumadin and my pro time.
Avatar f tn I have recently developed a severe rash over my legs and arms. It might not be related to my condition, but a heat rash, as I live in Las Vegas and am constantly in the sun. I have lived her for over 40yrs and never experienced it before. Recently I stayed indoors for about 4 d ays and it eased off, but when I had to out yesterday it came back. I have been using chalomine lotion on it which helps a bit and also hydrocortisone.
