Yes: Contact dermatitis can cause red and itchy skin. Contact dermatitis can be due to a hand cream, soap, cosmetic, etc. Treatment includes removing the offending agent, steroid creams and antihistamine pills to reduce the itch. ...Read more

Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash.

Clean, don't scratch: Clean the bedding well. Gently clean your body well too and wipe w/ diluted vinegar or witch hazel, etc. Use a hypoallergic lotion too. Take Benadryl as directed. If you still suffer, see a Dr. You might need a lb test and/or a Rx anti-inflammatory. Try hard to not scratch! Avoid infection. ...Read more

Over washing: can lead to dry skin. Sanitizer with high alcohol concentration can exacerbate that. Have you considered applying lotion to moisten skin tissue. Take care. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Since not urgent, so, still make effort to watch & identify potential offending factors in living environment and lifestyles besides tracing down if any family members have similar conditions as yours or if it's related with seasonal or hot muddy weather. Hopefully, you may find the causes for your itchy rashes in time after exhausting personal & professional efforts so to live on more comfortably ...Read more

Hard to know: Is there a rash? Does it usually worsen during the summer? Can you describe the allergies? In general, seasonal or food allergies do not cause isolated cutaneous symptoms on the hands and feet. A metabolic, toxic or nutritional neuropathy can cause hands/feet burning without rash. Insect exposure at night (if only the hands/ feet, head are exposed) might present this way. Just thoughts. ...Read more

Not penicillin: Allergic reactions to a drug do not last for this long. Try using moisturizer on your skin immediately after bathing on a regular basis and put a couple of drops of vegetable oil into the ear canals to see if these measures help. If not, you should see another doctor preferably a dermatologist. ...Read more
