Skin rash welts

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash welts


Avatar n tn Hi, Normally welts appear in a skin condition called hives.Hives are red, itchy welts or swellings on the skin that often come in clusters. Hives can appear anywhere on the body, cropping up either in one small area or covering large patches of skin. They most often occur as part of an allergic reaction. No one lesion lasts more than 24 hours, but new ones may continue to appear until the condition resolves.
Avatar m tn for the past two week i been having real itchy skin expecially on my leg and arms and i dont know what to do.
Avatar f tn The welts are of irregular shape, varying size, and skin colored. They itch but not terribly, just enough to wake me up. They disappear in the morning. My boyfriend, who sleeps with me, is untouched by whatever is causing this. I sleep next to the wall and thought that there might be bugs lurking there somewhere because the welts appear on the parts of my body closer to it. Problem is I can't seem to find anything.
Avatar n tn The bigger rash looks like the herald patch of pityriasis rosea,it will settle in a few days.Apply calamine,and do continue the antibiotic to complete the course.
Avatar n tn 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 sometimes by itching. No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months).Application of steroid cream may help. If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

I a 37 year old female. it started six years ago, the longest period of rest before outbreaks is 1 year.
Avatar m tn Herpes would not appear so quickly and probably not as a widespread rash as you describe. When you say welts though, do you mean red rash with raised bumps like a mosquito bite? No fluid or anything inside? If that's the case, it sounds like an immune allergic reaction, try some antihistamine tablets and see what happens. Of course follow up with a doctor when you can.
Avatar f tn Rash, Hives and/or Welts, burning skin with profuse itching, chest irritation, eye irritation, esophagus and stomach burning.
Avatar n tn Hi, These itchy bumps that appear when you scratch your arms could be hives. Hives are raised, often itchy, red welts on the surface of the skin. They are usually an allergic reaction to food or medicine. When you have an allergic reaction to a substance, histamine and other chemicals are released into your bloodstream, causing itching, swelling, and other symptoms.
Avatar m tn had an allergy in form of skin rash around 15 days ago. Red marks on my arms, legs, feet, small welts also. Doctor prescribed Allegra,cetrizine, azee, rantac for 5 days. Also recommended use of soap Cetrelak. Marks have gone, but itching still continuing & spreading. What can I do?
Avatar n tn I have a itchy rash that itches first then welts up in lines then it goes away it usually occurs on my hands from the wrist area to my knuckles, my torso usually back area, and as a strong itchy tingling on the tip of my toes, but is not limited to these certain areas. I have had itching inside my ears, between my fingers, on my legs and feet.
Avatar m tn Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. 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. Application of steroid cream also helps. If still the symptoms do not improve then please get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.
Avatar f 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. Also wear cotton clothes and use mild detergents. If the symptoms persist then get it examined 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 f tn I went to the beach today, and as soon as I got out of the ocean, I noticed a multitude of raised red welts (ranging from the size of a pen-tip to the size of a tic-tac) scattered about on my thighs and calves. They appeared nowhere else on my body. It is not razor stubble (I do not need to shave my legs above my knees, so I never have), and this "rash" (?
Avatar n tn Why cant I get rid of this skin rash it has been on my body for months?
Avatar m tn Last week I went into a stand-up bed for less than my normal time and later that night developed a rash/reddened welts on my upper arms, neck, and upper chest. It had been a couple weeks since I last tanned but I have done that before and tanned for the same amount of time, without a problem. I always use a lotion and haven't switched it for several months. I am not on any new medication either. I would like to continue to tan but don't want to worsen or continue to get this rash!
Avatar n tn redness and itching of the skin, rash erupts on the skin,and the rash develops into red bumps, called papules, or large, oozing blisters. An allergic reaction to a poison plant is diagnosed based on the typical pattern of symptoms and the appearance of the rash. It cannot be cured, but the symptoms can be treated. You may take cool showers and apply an over-the-counter lotion -- such as calamine lotion -- to help relieve the itch.
Avatar n tn It can cause a painful skin rash, I don't know if this is what you're seeing or actual welts. If you've been going to the same doctor for 10 years it may be time for a second opinion. Below is an excellent site to answer all your questions. Take care.
Avatar n tn Does anyone develop a skin rash either just prior to worsening symptoms or during ?
1967803 tn?1325679473 I have MS, been on Betaseron since February. Lately I've been experiencing strange, itchy, mosquito bite-looking welts that appear from either applying pressure to a particular area or a scratch. For instance, I was doing work at my desk and when I picked up my arms, theses bumps appeared on my forearms. I just accidentally scratched myself on the side of a table and now there's an itchy raised welt where the scratch is.
Avatar f tn About two weeks after that I started to get hives. Now instead of hives I get like red marks on my skin. The hives literally itch and burn so bad. Zyrtec helps. The hives/welts/marks come and within minutes they are gone. They appear all over my body including face. This has been happening for two months now. Would hiv rash do this? Could it be herpes? I have been to both my doctor and dermatologist who have both said it is chronic hives.
Avatar f tn I have a non itchy rash on my cheeks, chin,bridge of nose,and temples,that is light red in color.It is also not all the same size,some areas look a little like welts. any ideas?
Avatar n tn The saleslady convinced me that it was because it was used few times and may be the silicon strip is breaking down causing this rash! The rash ( about 1 inch long on my chest) scared my skin permanently! I bought two more ( one black and one beige) thinking may be she was right! I just wore one all day yesterday, I was in a situation I could not change!! Now I have 5-6 of 1-2 inch long Welt/ blistering my skin where the strapless bra has that silicon strip !
