I have been breaking out all over my body in itchy bumps. Is this eczema?

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 more

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.

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 more

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).
