Itchy rash on shins?

Best to see doctor: Hard to say without more information to help pin down the cause, and even then, rashes can be tough to diagnose without seeing them! i think i'd recommend a visit to your doctor. In the meantime, for the itching cool compresses, or lotions containing calamine or pramoxine would be good over-the-counter anti-itch treatment.
