See derm/allergist: Consult a dermatologist or allergist for the problem. In the meanwhile, avoid ibuprofen (which may worsen hives) and try taking antihistamine up to 4 times daily.

Hand/foot pain: There are many dermatologic conditions that could be affecting both your plams and soles of your feet. If the burning and itching is affecting your daily life, try taking an oral anti-histamine and seeing your pcp/dermatologist/podiatrist.

Need exam: Palms & soles with these symptoms needs an examination because there a number of things that it could be & these need to be ruled in & out by inspection, blood work, & history. At any rate, if this is an absolutely brand new set of symptoms which have never been discussed with a doctor then, you've now figured out the time to go...NOW.....some blood work will help and then, appropriate medication

What causes redness and swelling, tingling, burning, and itching in my hand?

HAND ITCH: Only one hand? How long had it been. It could be something you are in contact with. New soap? Work materials? Gloves? Hobbies? Be a detective. Do you take any oral medications?

Right handed?: Are you right handed? Think of soaps and other things coming in contact with this area while you work? We might be able to tackle this with a prime visit if we can get some detailed photos. Hard to say much without more detailed history and exam. Best of luck!

Sun protection: Allergic reaction to the henna. The most important thing you can do for the next several months is to aggressively protect the skin from sun exposure. This means broad-spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen, and to wear a glove when driving and keep the area covered. Exposure to sunlight will it increase the chances of increased/decreased pigmentation in the affected skin where you had the allergic reaction.

I've always taken amoxicillin since I was little took last year n had hand redness n itching up arms face was burning is this reaction n safe to take?

I've always taken amoxicillin since I was little took last year n had hand redness n itching up arms face was burning is this reaction n safe to take?

Itching amox: I would not take it again. Follow up with an allergist for penicillin allergy testing. You can develop an allergy anytime in life so the fact that in the past you took it without difficulty does not preclude becoming allergic later in life. Please tell every doctor you go to that the last time you took amoxicillin you had itching and a rash, it is very important. Drug allergies can be fatal.

Kidney infection: Could be sign of kidney infection or pyelonephritis. I would get some bloodwork and urinalysis, and get a check up by your family doctor ASAP, or if getting worse go to urgent care or ER because you could get worse quickly without antibiotics if indeed it is pyelonephritis.

My my little brother got bit by something he has a couple little bites probably like six or seven of them in a little group and he doesn't say their mosquito itches there just burning more like but they do look like bug bites, what could it be?

My my little brother got bit by something he has a couple little bites probably like six or seven of them in a little group and he doesn't say their mosquito itches there just burning more like but they do look like bug bites, what could it be?

Clustered Rash: We do not know the age of your little brother which might guide us in learning about this rash. 6 or 7 little spots which look like "bug bites" to you is helpful. Anyone else have a similar rash? Is it increasing in size or number of areas? Are they crusted over? Is there overlying redness extending from the areas? Ddx: includes impetigo, mite bites as scabies, spider or mosquito bites

Rash that is all over my body. My palms too. Itches sometimes and gets really red after shower? Barely see it most of time.

Rash that is all over my body. My palms too. Itches sometimes and gets really red after shower? Barely see it most of time.

Small bumps present?: If you have noted small red and itchy bumps after showering, it may be from a condition known as cholinergic urticaria which occurs when the body temperature rises and starts to cool down. If this is what you have, this is not a serious condition and can usually be helped by taking an antihistamine before any activity causing a rise in body temperature. (exercise, stress, hot shower etc).

Why does my palm of feet itches?

Why does my palm of feet itches?

Dry Skin, Fungus: The most common causes of itchy skin on the soles of your feet are dry skin and athlete's foot which is caused by fungus or yeast. Even if you do not see or smell anything odd, i'd suggest trying a simple over the counter anti fungal cream applied every day and see if the problem resolves. If not, see a doctor. Terbinafine and Clotrimazole are commonly available otc antifungals.
