Antifungal: It is difficult to tell the cause of a rash without seeing it but a common type of rash that is itchy is a yeast or fungal rash. I would first try an over the counter yeast treatment like lamisil (terbinafine) cream (terbinifine). It can take several weeks applying the cream bid to get rid of the rash. If this does not work then I suggest seeing your doctor for an exam. ...Read more

Drug reaction: Drug reactions can have different forms. Hives (urticaria) is one of them. Any medication can produce hives. First thing to do is stop the medication. Hives are due to histamine release in the skin. Antihistamines usually help reduce this reaction. If antihistamines do not help, please see your doctor. If there is any swelling of lips, tongue or throat, please go to emergency room immediately. ...Read more

Do I have lme disease? I got a tick bite on my upper thigh about half a year ago. It spread to other parts of my legs, itches a lot, but I don't have any of the other symptoms. I misspelld: the question is do I have Lyme diease?

The: The rash associated with lyme disease is called erythema migrans and it looks like a target or bulls-eye. It usually starts at the site of the tick bite 3-30 days after the bite (average 7 days) and then can spread to other parts of the body. The rash typically doesn't last more than a month and is rarely itchy. An itchy rash appearing 6 months after a tick bite would not be related to lyme disease. Other kinds of ticks can spread other organisms besides lyme such as "southern tick associated rash illness" or rocky mountain spotted fever, so if you think you have an abnormal rash related to a previous tick bite, contact your doctor.

Below I've attached a website with tons of good information on lyme disease. Good luck! ...Read more

Rashes are tough: Rashes are tough to diagnose without actually seeing them. However, if by "circular rash" you mean a circle-shaped rash with rash only on the edge and clear in the middle, this could be ring-worm, which is a fungal infection in the skin (not a worm). The bumps on your rump could also be a fungal rash. Advise that you see your doctor for an examination to determine the cause of the rash and treat. ...Read more

If you continue to have bruises throughout your body, then you need to get checked out for certain diseases by a healthcare provider. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
