Skin rashes bug bites

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes bug bites


Avatar n tn But if you start scratching it your going to make it itch worst and even creams might not stop the itch until it settles down. Another thing that I do is run the irritated area under hot water (only for bug bites not rashes) until it stops itching which is about 10 minutes for me. While under hot water it might itch 10x worst, don't scratch it. They will help after you remove it from the hot water. Repeat this 3-4 times a day for 10 minutes; in the shower works well.
Avatar n tn Rash in scabies is usually found in the folds of skin and they are red blister like rashes. It is an infestation of the skin with the Sarcoptes scabiei mite. It 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. I would suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Hope it helps.Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn I have a ton of bug bites on the back of my neck and all down my back, ranging from very small to medium and raised from the skin. There are none on my hands or feet, but there are some on my legs and arms. They itch nonstop all day and night. Some appear as rashes which may be a result of my itching. I am not allergic to anything. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I can't tell if what I have is a rash or if it's just a bunch of bug bites? I've counted at least 165 bumps or bites on my body. Most of them are on my stomach, thighs and sides. I have a few on my calves and a spattering of them on my left forearm. They don't really itch, some of them are a little irritated and sensitive to the touch but most of them, like the ones on my stomach are pretty tiny and painless.
Avatar f tn I didnt mean bug bites Hives kinda look like bug bites, If they are dry patches it could be Exima, Or it could be from the yorgut what kind was it?

Avatar f tn They are just single spread out through out my body one fades away then new ones come for the past 3 months I've had between 3-6 at a time. They are either small red dots inside my skin, or bigger itchy red bumps that look just like single bug bites and itch very bad, both rashes last anywhere from 7-14 days.
202436 tn?1326477933 Did you use a new detergent? I would say it's some kind of skin irritation, but doesn't look like bug bites. Heat rash, food allergy, new detergent??
Avatar n tn It's wonderful for any type of itch-even bug bites. had great results with skin rashes and itching by using 100% lavender essential oil. you can mix it with a carrier oil like any vegetable oil and it works great. its also great for burns (it will take the pain right away) and any skin problems. i used it while on tx. you can buy it in most natural food/health stores or order it online. My family dr gave me a script for something called Mometasone Furoate ointment, 0.1%.
Avatar m tn Hi, This could be allergic reactions to unknown substances, skin hypersensitivity, eczema, dermatitis or insect/bug bites. Do you notice the lesions trigerred in response to a specific stimulus like sun exposure, some substance related to your work place? You should try to keep the area dry and clean. Try some powder to absorb the sweat. Apply calamine lotion at the site and take some oral antihistamine medications like loratadine or cetrizine for your complaints.
Avatar n tn Now last two days i have a fever. It may be caused by BUG ? We have a bed bug problem in house. Generally the rashes disappearing two or three days.
Avatar f tn I am a nurse so I have seen scabies and bed bug bites, and I don't have either of those rashes. Also I have a get bad headache. Help!! I feel like I am going crazy!!
Avatar f tn Hopefully she will eventually get with the schedule. Does the diaper rashes look like they are breaking the skin, or does it look like one big cherry red area on her entire bottom?
Avatar f tn Hello, If the lesions itch only at night then bug bites and scabies bites should be ruled out. Scabies is an infestation by the itch mite. Scabies produces small red bumps and blisters and affects specific areas of the body. It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn My 33 year old fiance started last week with some small hive/rash (red, itchy bumps - like bug-bites but not) on his left toes. They then spread to his left thigh. Now on his torso and his right arm. Two triggers I can think of: 1) we had a mulch delivery last week and something in there is biting him or 2) he's having a reaction to the fabric softener I picked up (smelly vs hypoallergenic). Our problem is we can't decide if they're hives, bug bites, a rash, or what...
Avatar n tn Since you are only having the rashes at night you definitely need to rule out any insect or bug bites or any specific allergy trigerring factors. Till then wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. He could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. He need to maintain a good personal hygiene . Wear lose comfortable clothes.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar n tn Hello, These can be insect bites, viral rashes, contact dermatitis or pityriasis rosea (although less likely). Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort. If there is any itching antihistaminics like Benadryl or Claritin can be taken.
Avatar m tn If you look at they have pictures of bed bug bites and yurs looks just like bed bug bites. I have copied and pasted the information below with regard to treatment for bed bug bites but they reckon the bicarbonate of soda one is by far the best:- 1) Make sure to wash the bed bug bites with soap and water. 2) Make a thick sticky paste with the water and baking soda, not too runny and thick enough that it will stay.
Avatar m tn I get a bug bite sensation, but never a bug sighting. I get an immediate bump that looks like a mosquito bite . It itches for a few minutes but then stops. I get them on all parts of my body. I might just get one at a time or several different areas at a time. It happens when I sleep, when I'm at work, when I'm dressed, when I'm not... I can't find any pattern to the outbreaks, but it does seem to worsen when I sleep which might be due from body heat. I don't have animals.
Avatar n tn Recently I've been waking up to find what looks like mosquito bites on my legs and ankle. They are slightly swollen like bug bites and very itchy. At first I thought it might be bed bugs, but unlike the usual case of bed bugs, the bites/rashes are not clustered and are localized to just my leg area. I did a check of my bed at night before going to sleep and I couldn't find anything. I also did not smell that sweet smell in my bed that is often associated with bed bugs.
Avatar f tn around April, i have a little flea problem but that was taken care. however i keep getting itchy spots or patches, they are not like bed bug bites or fleas, since i get one itchy rash spot every four or three days. By mid May, the spots or patches stop appearing. however on Friday i got two mosquitoes bites on my right leg, next thing i knew i have two patches on my left arm, it look quite different compare to the bites on my leg.
Avatar m tn I eat pretty much the same foods all the time, and generally use the same shower gels/shampoos. They don't iche. I don't think they're bug bites. I went swimming in a lake earlier in the year, but I think these existed before that. I'm in my 20s. White, female, fair skinned. No recent sun exposure. Large. The rashes are on my side/stomach, back, sometimes legs. I don't have any allergies or health conditions. Drink a lot of milk/dairy.
Avatar m tn Also bed bug bites and scabies have to be ruled out then. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted in case of additional queries.
Avatar m tn Teri, In addition there are no white heads on the rash, they almost look like tiny bug bites, but I don't think they are, they are condensed in small area very tightly compacted. I just have no idea, my fear it has something to do with the stripper or the massage person I talked about earlier. Help!!!
Avatar m tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be bed bug bites or scabies. Scabies is an infestation of the skin with the Sarcoptes scabiei mite.

Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs.
Avatar n tn I wasn't really paying attention as this came on over a few weeks. I had a bunch of bug bites show up in September 2013. It was flea season, and they were very itchy and persisted for more than a day, unlike mosquito bites. So I assumed I had been bitten by fleas, though I never saw a flea. I had a good dozen bites around my calves and ankles. I'm pretty good about not scratching bug bites. After about a week...maybe 10 days of this I got very sick for about 10 days...strange though.
1885222 tn?1320851732 We both have also been finding weird, random itchy bumps, similar to bug bites, but without the actual bite marks. If there is a bite mark, it's much too small for us to see. We both also feel VERY itchy ALL the time. It's getting annoying. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn Dear all, On late october 2015 my lower leg started itching due to some bug bites (flying insects and bed bugs). Since then, this area (lower legs) itches sometimes and I have now some other areas itching as weel... there are no Rashes but it itches in very specific points on my back, head, arms and face. I'm experiencing a difficult time (anxiety crisis) and I'm wondering whether this itching condition could be due to that. Help me pls!
