Could be ringworm: This sounds like what is commonly called ringworm, or tinea corporus. This is a common infection caused by a fungus. It is easily treated with Lamisil (terbinafine) or lotrimin, but make sure that this is what it is by going to your family doctor. ...Read more

"heat rash?": When you get this rash, get an appt so the dr can see it, and then the diagnosis would be made and the best treatment could start. If only when sweating, possibly it is a type of minor heat rash that itches. Stress can also cause itching, called stress urticaria, and meds such as Hydroxyzine hcl, which are fda approved for both anxiety and itching can help. Good luck. ...Read more

Insect Bite: Signs and symptoms of an insect bite result from the injection of venom or other substances into your skin. The venom causes pain and sometimes triggers an allergic reaction. The severity of the reaction depends on your sensitivity to the insect venom or substance and whether you've been stung or bitten more than once. See your doctor as the bite may be infected. ...Read more

2 bites on right calf, small white blisters i the center, red and swollen around the blisters. Hard knot under the skin. Itches. No fever.

2 bites on right calf, small white blisters i the center, red and swollen around the blisters. Hard knot under the skin. Itches. No fever.

Fire ant bites: Most likely fire ant bites, they will go away without treatment in several days. The white center is not an indication of infection, so it is best not to break the blister. Just put a bandage over them to keep your little one from scratching. An over the counter antihistamine like Diphenhydramine (benadryl) will likely help the itching along with a cool compress. ...Read more

Tough to say: You need to see a dr. And get a an official history and physical to determine what issues you have. Probably not a dermatitis if it only happens when standing. May be some nerve irritation caused by a standing position irritating your sciatic nerve, that is somehow causing the feeling of "itching" to the area a nerve branch is innervating, a simple guess on the computer though.Get eval, good luck. ...Read more

I have this bump on my leg and it itches but there is a black thing in the middle of it and it kinda feels hot to touch to me but not others?

I have this bump on my leg and it itches but there is a black thing in the middle of it and it kinda feels hot to touch to me but not others?

Get it checked: An itchy bump doesn't sound too worrisome, but anytime we hear there is pigmentation, "a black thing", we have more concern for skin cancer. For us a picture would help, but probably best to have your doctor take a look at it. Good luck! ...Read more
