15mt ago itchy rash on legs. Full body 3mt later.4docs/many meds/biopsies/blood test=nothin. Wondring if wheat/gluten allergy? Suddenly start at age 42?

What did the Dr say?: Forget about wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity. Dermatologist among "4 docs"? "Many meds" means nothing unless you name them. What was found on biopsies? Blood tests? This has no meaning without revealing what tests and what readings. This may be serious or, at least, very debilitating. You will get nowhere on the internet. Suggest you try to get to dermatology at nearest medical school. ...Read more

I have had a knot on my lymph node for years. I am always tired and always have itchy skin. Blood tests come back normal.?

Incomplete info: Normal blood test are not a clean bill of health. It depends on what was tested. The lymph node is probably unrelated to your symptoms. It would need a detailed history, physical examination and may be additional tests to provide a meaningful opinion. I trust that you are under the care of a doctor and it would be prudent to discuss the issue with her/him. ...Read more

Ige level of 760, all other blood tests normal. Itchy skin and throat. Allergies or parasites? So worried and can't see allergist until next week.

Ige level of 760, all other blood tests normal. Itchy skin and throat. Allergies or parasites? So worried and can't see allergist until next week.

Likely allergies: Parasitic infections in the us are much less likely than allergies as a cause for elevated ige levels (unless you have had recent travel outside the us, especially to a 3rd world country). The itchy skin and throat also are more likely allergic manifestations. In the absence of other symptoms, waiting a week to see an allergist should not be a risk. Www. Mainlineent. Com. ...Read more

Why am I itching all over? Tried blood test from doctors not scabies dry skin no rash or hives tried nonscented items like soaps tried less warm showe

Most common: Cause, often "missed" is SKIN DRYNESS!!!!
This condition is often called "Winter Itch" although it can occur in any season. Heat being turned on in cold weather dries the skin even faster that's why the condition is more prevalent during winter months!
TRY HUMIDIFIER in your bedroom and run it during day so that when you go to bed the room has a good moisture level!
Hope this helps!

Itchy legs 6yr ago&became red little spots all over, and are redder when sweat. Blood test is normal. Itchy again, but rash is big like coin. Related?

See a doctor: They sound like hives/urticaria. Unfortunately sometimes we can't find a cause. Possibly your body reacts to heat/moisture as if it is allergic. I would see a doctor again, but meanwhile, try diphenhydramine/benadryl for the itch and rash. Taking a pill like zyrtec/allegra/claritin daily could also help. ...Read more
