Breaking Out In Red Itchy Bumps
Everytime i wear jeans, or any type of pants like jeans i break out in small red real itchy bumps ALL over my legs. But not for any other pants. :(?
Irritant vs contact: You may have a contact allergy to one of the ingredients in your jeans. Another possibility is that jeans are worn tightly and may be rubbing on your skin whereas other types of pants are not usually that tight. See a dermatologist or allergist to get patch tested if you cannot avoid wearing jeans. ...Read more
Eczema vs hives: It's impossible to guess what the itchy bumps could be without knowing where and when they occur. With eczema, there usually isn't a rash until you scratch because you itch. The rash results from scratching. The bumps are often tiny, as well. With hives, the bumps can be tiny or huge, they get bigger with scratching, and they go away completely in a few hours. With poison ivy you get blisters. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.
Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved i would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Last week i broke out in red itchy bumps all over feet. Today more have appeared. They don't bleed or peel, what is this and what should I do?
Many answers: There can be many answers to your questions and no one can even guess what they are without a better history and examination. However you may try to take some antihistamine at up to 4x daily (a much higher dose than for hay fever). However if the rash gets worse or lasting for more than a couple of weeks, see your doctor. ...Read more
Hives: Red itchy bumps may be hives, bed bugs, mosquito bites, spider bites, poison ivy and many other things. Of course more detail is needed to help you but an antihistamine pill like Allegra (fexofenadine) 180 mg once daily could help reduce the itch. A steroid cream may be helpful too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
