What do itchy legs mean

Common Questions and Answers about What do itchy legs mean


Avatar n tn I've even tried to not even shave my legs but i can't stand to not do that either because my legs will hurt when the hair on my legs get so long. I've tried to use lotions(non-scented and scented), alcohol, buffers, hair removal sprays and gels. I'm at my wits end at trying to find a cure for my itchy legs. I almost want to dip them in pure acid. What do I do about this recurring problem?
Avatar n tn Dry scaly skin especially in the hands and legs may be a reaction to a product applied in the area. Do you frequently shave your legs? Do you use any cream or foam on your legs? Antihistamines and steroid creams may be able to help. Discuss this with your physician. Use only mild unscented creams to misturize the area.If you have noted any possible triggers, avoid these as much as possible.
Avatar n tn Let me ask a few questions to try and find some common denominators. 1. What do you use for a cloth and soap when you do the dishes? 2. Have you bought any new footwear or socks lately or been wearing down there you hadn't before this got to be all the time? 3.Have you ever had this issue when you were younger? 4. Any new flooring or furniture? 5. you might think this is dumb but do you have a plastic shower curtain or what is it.6. 6.Do you use moisturizer after you shower. 7.
Avatar f tn I know exactly what you mean Nalla and ChattyCush! I have always been an active individual and use to run a lot. I gave up running a number of years ago now but have remained active. Ever since I tried to start running again I suffer from intense itching to the point where I just cannot run any longer. I definately didn't start off with a "vigorous exercise program".

Avatar f tn These reads are MAKING ME ITCHY lol
Avatar n tn so I mean it's just a food like tomatoes, are tomatoes bad to eat during treatment? you know what I mean.... but of course, you can consult some real experts and not just me...ha ha! the only thing I mean to say is that sometimes when you ask a doc about mushrooms they'll automatically say no, cause they don't know what they are and the concept freaks them out, see what you can come up with...be well...
Avatar n tn When I was at the doctor for another reason I asked him, and he said that they didn't look like bites, but rather like something from inside me--like hives, is what I took him to mean, or an allergic reaction. Finally, after some internet digging, I asked a dermatologist I had to see for another reason a possibly leading question, and she said that yes, an injured tendon (why I saw the first doctor) can produce a burst of histamines which could cause itchiness and something like hives.
Avatar f tn My Legs are soooo itchy!!! I keep putting on lotion every time it gets really itchy! I itch so hard, I end up getting cuts and scrapes on my legs! I guess it's a good thing I bite my nails. When I stopped shaving and my hair started to almost fully grow back out it wasn't as itchy anymore or not itchy at all. It was like I forgot to itch my legs or something!
Avatar n tn I want to help him, but i don't know what to do if they don't get the right information. I told them to write the test results down so I can see them. He is going into the hospital tomorrow to have the fluids drained since the pills are not working. I have given him all the paperwork that I found, thanks to this site, for getting ssd, and he is fillig them out. His girlfriend is going to make an appt for him. He is taking lactulose and that has helped his speech.
Avatar n tn Just my lower legs though--nowhere else. Sometimes it's painfully itchy--you guy know what I mean! I use a combo of benadryl ointment and oral benadryl, which of course puts me to sleep so I can't take it during the day.
Avatar n tn Your rash sounds somewhat like eczema to me. The itching in various sites could be eczema, or it could be anxiety from worrying about the eczema in the groin. (Your detailed description of sore throat and bloating suggests concern with body sensations that is probably irrelevant and not doing you any good.
Avatar n tn No answer This only happened after the bath. I still do not know what is the reason. I tried a cream called Lidex, very cheap for generic, it worked great. But the rash comes and goes. To end the reoccurance of it would be a blessing. I would love to know what it is. It itches and burns and drives me crazy. If anyone could shed light, it would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I started getting really red itchy bumps (only on my legs) about a week ago. They do swell when i scratch but eventually go away, they itch really bad and i have been even be using my hair brush to scratch (i clean it afterward).....I dont have medical insurance so i cant go to the doctor to find out what it is...I just hope i dont get sick from it, i can tolerate the itching till it goes away.
Avatar f tn Have you been to any doctor yet? Any fatigue or anxiety or any other symptoms?
Avatar f tn In both cases it is worse (by which I mean more itchy, I can't see if there are more spots or not) on my right side than on my left. They are light pink in colour and seem to have spread some. Nothing is present on the front of my body. There are one or two bumps which I can see that seem to be a little bigger than the others and could possibly by spider bites, but I have had spider bites in the past with none of these symptoms. Thank you very much for your help!
Avatar n tn ) so when they DO get a big surge of warm blood from exercise or taking hot showers, they react by getting itchy! What do y'all think?!?! I'm curious what people think about this...
Avatar n tn I still feel sick and hae a hard time thinking it to be anything else.. and it is past the 48 hr mark so i do not know what a swab would do now...
163305 tn?1333672171 ITCHY SCAPL: I did get the Tea Tree shampoo & conditioner for my itchy scalp. I've used it twice & it seems to be helping. Also the scent of it is very refreshing & soothing. Almost minty. Thanks to you ladies who recommended Tea Tree to me.
Avatar n tn well few yrs back i had an alergic reaction to some prescription medication that contain sulfate in it, never thought about the connection with the itchy legs,and i like alot of toast for breakfast, i do not eat alot of sandwhiches,and like many others on here it's not all the time , it flares up mostly in cold weather. or when severe weather comes on, beleive it or not, but sulfate comes from the ground, i would assume, we must have such a connection with our earth.. funny to say....
Avatar f tn I'm 31 weeks pregnant & I've noticed my skin is sooo itchy, I mean like everywhere like hands, legs,arms. anybody have/had this problem & know why I could be so itchy!?
Avatar n tn I am itchy all over, except for the two areas that were previously affected. I litterally mean all over. My legs my arms, my back. Recently the sides of my hands by my thumb down to my wrist broke out in to what looks to be hives. I've pretty much decided this is all due to stress. My main question is, should I go see my doctor again? If its due to stress I obviously need to work on my deep breathing skills etc.
Avatar n tn I have a dark spot (pale black, not raised) on my leg and one much lighter (not noticable that much) under my lower lip. First I thought these are mosquito bites as they were red and itchy. after a few days the itch and redness was gone and they became less noticable. But the wiered thing is every few months they both at a same time become red and a bit raised and itchy for a few days just like they have been biten recently. this has been happening for the third time during last year.
Avatar n tn I know what you mean, Ihad this problem for about a week now. First it just started to itch then what I thought was mosqito bites started poping up every where.Aout two days ago they started appearing on my arms then on my neck a little bit It just hasn't got to my back just yet but I am so glad about that.
