Itchy rash

Extremity-lower-one_side
Many possibilities for itchy rashes: eczema, allergic reaction to foods or medications, hives, viral rash, scabies, and many others. Please see your dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis and treatment. If you have hives (urticaria) and any itchiness or swelling of lips, tongue or throat or any difficulty breathing, get to ER right away.

Been breaking out in small random rashes for last 3 months. On arms and legs. Lasts no longer than 10 mins and goes away. Justrred and itchy??

Sounds like hives

Leg
Which can be triggered by allergies, & stress. Sometimes an antihistamine like Benadryl, Claritin, Allegra, or Zyrtec can help, as well as avoiding any triggers. Sometimes it can be associated w celiac disease and/or wheat allergy. Nickel can be another trigger. If it worsens please see your doctor.

Eczema

Joints
Eczema is an inherited tendency toward dry skin and skin allergies. Eczema rash normally presents as dry, flaky white patches, but can also flare up and cause lesions that may turn red and raised. Eczema lesions are frequently found on the inside of the elbows and the backs of the knees. Treatment is with prescription cortisone and emollients.

i keep breaking out in itchy red lumps on anywhere i heat up.under my arms behind my knees even on my face today.its really uncomfortable.?

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic_dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis is due to a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) in the skin, which leads to long-term swelling and redness (inflammation) of the skin. People with atopic dermititis may lack certain proteins in the skin, which leads to greater sensitivity. Treatment is with prescription topical cortisone and emollients.

Eczema

Head-face
Your daughter suffers from atopic dermatitis or eczema. Cotton clothing is best ; avoid wool & synthetic fibers. Maintaining skin moisture is prime treatment. She can have quick daily baths and thick moisturizers applied to her skin & again at night. Give hydroxyzine for itching. Steroid ointments and oral antibiotics maybe needed sometimes. Ointments & creams are better than lotions for the skin.

There are many types and causes of skin rashes.

Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
