1356000 tn?1277241497 Hello, From the symptoms it looks like viral infections, contact dermatitis or allergic reaction. Apply some calamine lotion and take some antihistaminic like Benadryl. Also apply a mild steroid cream on the rash. If the symptoms persist then please get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn You may try taking an over the counter antihistaminic and apply calamine locally for symptomatic relief. If the symptoms still persist or if the symptoms are severe consult a dermatologist. I do hope it helps. Best wishes!
Avatar n tn has he been sick recently had a fever, another symptoms? The shedding skin may be after HFM...hand, foot and mouth .
Avatar n tn The only thing that was found was a yeast infection the first time but negative the other times although symptoms continued. The creams seem to help control symptoms except for right after my period when itching increases and there is some watery white sticky discharge. The doctor said it look like possibly excema. No definate diagnois given. Should I see a dermatologist?
Avatar m tn Hello, Without examination it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis, but the symptoms are suggestive of prickly heat(miliaria) or sweat dermatitis. Prickly heat (miliaria) is an itchy skin rash caused by trapped sweat. It tends to occur on areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as under the breasts, on the inner thighs, and under the arms. Tiny red spots with itching and pricking sensation are the characteristic appearance of this rash.

Avatar m tn If you face any of such symptoms again, please take an over the counter antihistaminic like Benadryl or zyrtec.If symptoms are severe, oral steroids may be needed. Also, if it is your private pool, then ask swimming pool manufacturers to replace chlorine with some other chemical to which you are not allergic. If you sense any difficulty in breathing after entering the pool, then please consult an ER immediately as it can be life threatening anaphylaxis.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms that the rash has spread to the whole body in very less time raises the doubts of this rash being due to an allergic reaction or a viral infection. Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and consult a dermatologist soon so as to confirm the diagnosis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Hello, Please elaborate on the symptoms and description of the rash whether it is itchy, non itchy, discharging, dry, smooth, elevated etc so that a list of differentials can be made. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn 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 symptoms 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). Also use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.
