Cholinergic?: You may have what we call cholinergic urticaria which comes on after a rise in core body temperature . However if cold temperature causes it also then the probability of this condition is much lower even though cold-induced cholinergic urticaria has been reported. This condition is usually controlled by taking an antihistamine 1-2 hrs prior. ...Read more

Not hives no redness cluster of small hard clear fluid filled bumps on heel of palm on both hands palms and soles of feet itchy Benadryl (diphenhydramine) no help?

A form of dermatitis: There are a few different conditions that may cause such a presentation. This could be due to an organism. But there are a variety of causes which could be due to eczema or a less common condition called pompholyx. It can be challenging to diagnose in a clinical presentation, so i'm thinking the blisters should be cultured and biopsied. Some rx's usually include a topical steroid. ...Read more

Hive like bumps on ankle and hands not itchy anymore. Pea sized mass back of neck under hairline kinda movable. Leukemia or lymphoma all Im 18 scared?

Hives are generally: itchy, but may not be any longer, if you're taking an antihistamine. However, this rash may not be hives; it is difficulty knowing without seeing it. The lump at the back of your neck is most likely a lymph node and likely not cancer....however, you really should see your doctor to check both of these issues to be properly diagnosed and treated. ...Read more

I've been having itching on the soles of my feet, the palms of my hands and now my scalp is itching.   No sign of any rash, bumps or anything visible.

Itching palms/soles: Usually, the first thing we think of , if it is new and sudden onset - with palms and soles involved, is a drug allergy. Usually with a rashl. Any new medications? IF it is chronic- and the skin peels it could be dyshydrotic eczema. This generally responds well to steroid creams and ensuring skin is not overly moist ( i.e. sweating in socks). This type of eczema is usually between fingers/toes. ...Read more

Please help there's bumps all over forearm, not itchy so it can't be hives right?

Rash: Hives usually present as red, raised, itchy lesions that can be small or large. "Hives" are often used non-specifically to describe many different skin lesions so I would have your rash looked at directly in order to make the correct diagnosis. Hives do tend to itch and individual lesions usually appear and resolve completely within 24 hours. See your doctor for further treatment and evaluation. ...Read more

For the past 2 days I have had a patch of little red bumps that itch. I don't think they are hives. Was in the woods yesterday. Should I worry??

Itchy bumps: Itchy bumps/rash could be due to many different things. If you were in the woods, I would think of bug bites or poison ivy. try hydrocortisone cream to help with itch, as well as an oral antihistamine like benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec, but watch out because benadryl (diphenhydramine) can make you sleepy. if still not going away in a few days, consult with a physician in person or here on Healthtap ...Read more
