Skin rash upper arms

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash upper arms


Avatar n tn I have a constant rash on my upper arms that has been there for years. I was told previously that it was infected dermatitis but the cream i was prescribed didn't clear it. Fucibet and Fucidin. It is not itchy, but consists of tiny red or white bumps, the white ones have a white substance when squeezed. The sun seems to help clear it but it returns again. Could it be an allergy. I am asthmatic. I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have a rash that is only on my upper arms and the backs of arms close to armpits. Small red bumps, somedays worse than others but always there. I have had it for over a year and a half now. Not painful, not itchy. Just there. What can I do about it? Is there a home remedy or over the counter cream I could try? My family Dr. told me a year ago that it was dry skin and would go away. It never has. Help please! It is nearly summer and I can't wear sleeveless clothing.
Avatar n tn I am 30yrs old. I have had a skin rash on my upper body (arms, chest, & back). It is similar to acne, small red raised bumps. They itch very badly. Previous doctors say they do not know what it is and always tell me to take benydril. I have had them for 4 or 5 years and they come and go. Has anyone else had this kind of problem with Hep C? Could it be related? I have never been treated for Hep C because it has always been nonactive.
Avatar f tn I notice it is much worse if I sweat or if I wear lotions that cause my upper arms to sweat. Unfortunately, like every one else explained, scratching the skin only worsens the itching, and then the topicals we use don't work. There is no rash, and I also think that is what contributes to doctors thinking it is psychological. I have been using Gold Bond Lotion for itching, with menthol in it. Unfortunately it is a lotion, which sometimes creates more sweat.
Avatar n tn I am an 18 year old female and have had a semi non itchy red rash on my chest, upper back and upper arms for about 2 years. The rest of my skin is smooth and clear and my doctor prescribed me Westin cream and it was not effective. I have changed soaps, lotions, luandry detergent and clothing and none of those elements seem to be the problem. It gets better at times and worsens at others but never fully goes away. It started on my arms, then went to my chest, then my back.

Avatar n tn She has been on 6mp and Bactrim for over 1.5 years. The past 3 weeks she had a small rash on her upper forearm (oposite from her elbow). A few days ago she woke up and the rash was down to her arms legs and feet. She even has a few bumps on her hands. Doc says it is a rash from her there anything i can give her to help keep the irritation down just a bit?
Avatar n tn I have metastatic brain cancer from breast cancer and am being treated every 4 weeks with cisplatin and caelyx. I have developed a rash on my thighs and upper arms. Is there anything I can do about it?
Avatar n tn I have a rash on my upper arms, chest, and torso. The rash is fine in appearance and seems to itch more at night. Oral antihistimines give very limited relief. I should mention the rash is on my upper thighs as well. I have a history of eczema, but this is noth like the rash I normally experience - no blisters or oozing, but I do have pain associated with the rash.
Avatar f tn It is more likely to occur on the neck and upper chest, in the groin, under the breasts, and in elbow creases.Most often, heat rash goes away on its own. Severe forms of heat rash may need medical care, but the best way to relieve symptoms is to cool your skin and prevent sweating. Keep the affected area dry.Give him cotton-made outfits and use mild soap to prevent rash formation.
Avatar f tn A 79 year old male friend of mine broke out in an awful skin rash on his torso,arms,neck and upper chest very itchy about five months ago.

Do you have any ideas?? Worried! Help This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/231520'>Is Rash � Itching A Symptom Of Cancer?</a>.
Avatar f tn However after I put my suit on my skin starts to breakout and it is red and splotchy, not extremely itchy but it is sometimes. The areas of the redness are on my upper arms, chest, neck and shoulders. The areas are also warm. The spots do not disappear once I get in the water. They only last a couple hours at most and I am now starting to get them everyday as to before it was more rare. This might be due to swimming more. I do not know if this problem is involved with swimming or chlorine.
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 The rash started on the back opf my torso it is as ictchy as hell I seem to run a tempreture now and then slightly and it gets more itchey it is now on my arms. on my upper legs I have small blotches with dry skin on top. I am under a huge amount of stress at the moment. The rash has no blisters and I am feeling the cold a bit. I first noticed an oval dry patch of skin small. Pityriasis Rosea?
1847172 tn?1319050869 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 It is blotchy on my arms and chest and more so on my upper back. My neck and face are the worst! I now use cetaphil soap and lotion. No soap on my face though, just water. I cooled the water temp down but that didn't help. I am allergic to the cold; I break out in hives. Am I allergic to the heat now too or the water? And if yes, then why is the rash only in those areas mentioned? I have pictures to post but I don't know how.
968590 tn?1247587654 Ever since I was little I have had what looks like a rash on my upper arms. Little red bumps that sometimes have a white center like a pimple, but nothing else (like the puss or scabbing) that you would attribute with acne. It doesn't itch, burn, or otherwise bother me except cosmetically, and that my skin seems to be very dry in that region and lotions do not help. I am 22 years old and slightly overweight...
Avatar f tn No rash on back. None on face, neck, arms, upper torso (except for what appears to be 3 isolated, very small areas; none on hands, feet, or below knee. The creams I've been using haven't worked, and I've been using them for over 24 hours.
Avatar f tn Lately, I've deveped some red, dry, round patches on my upper arms and wonder if that could be from the LS in place of just dry skin? Also, my mom has Scleraderma, and I wondered if that could somehow be linked to LS?
Avatar n tn Hi, im getting little quarter sized and smaller rash like things all on my thighs and upper leg. The just started out of no where, What is going on?
Avatar f tn My son (13) has a lot of little red bumps on his upper arm. The rash is also on his chest and face, not red, but feels like sand paper. We were told it is "Dariar's (sp?) Disease", a hereditary conditon, with flare-ups more dominant during warm weather. Where can I find more information on this? Keratosis Pilaris, and what my son has, appear to be exactly the same, except for the time of the year the outbreak is supposed to occur. Your input and help will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn About 18 months ago I developed a slight rash on the underside of each upper arm, sometimes it can be barely visible (very rare now) more like a few broken faint viens and tiny pimply spots right on underside of arms. To now 18 months later where it seems to have spread to the sides of my upper arms as well as underside and is constantly red and almost like a faint mesh of broken/spider viens, but when you press on the area the skin turns a normal colour before going back to rash like state.
