Feet are blistering athete feet like, burning and itchin blister are pop-up under the skin burning swellin, uncontrolable itching.
Well, : Well, you so seem to be describing athlete's foot, a topical fungal infection, although there are other skin disorders that could also cause itching and blistering, like contact dermatitis (an allergic reaction from something like a dye in a new sock, etc.). Usually fungal infections have a characteristic fungal odor, whereas contact dermatitis doesn't. If you're absolutely miserable, go see a dermatologist or podiatrist right away. But if you'd like to try something yourself first, you can try applying an over-the-counter anti-fungal cream like lamisil, lotrimin or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2-3 times a day and see if it improves. If it doesn't get noticeably better in a day or two, you need to see a doctor. Regardless of what it might be, and as hard as this advice might be to follow, it's very important to not scratch! scratching will only inflame the area and in the case of fungal infections, will only cause it to spread (and put fungal spores under your fingernails). If you do see an improvement in a day or two, it most certainly is a fungal infection. Fungal spores live for 30 days, so just because it clears up in a couple of days doesn't mean you should stop using the fungicidal cream. You should keep using the cream for at least 30 days to prevent recurrence. Hope this helps. Don't scratch, and good luck! ...Read more

Mosquito bite: The itching is actually a response of the immune system to antigens that are present in the mosquitoes saliva. Mosquito injects a bit of its saliva, which acts as a 'local anesthesia' so we won't know for a few seconds that we have been bitten. It also acts as an anticoagulant, preventing the blood from clotting so the mosquito can be free to draw blood for as long as it pleases. ...Read more

I had a very bad bruise on my calf it has healed now I have a slight bump where the bruise was and it itches really bad. Why does it still hurt/itch?
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. You may try warm compresses for a few days, as the blood clot in the tissue may not have resolved, even though the skin appears to have healed.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

For a couple years now I have had extreme itches on my chest, arms, calfs, and back just after i break a sweat, please help me. Thanks?
"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.
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

When i stand still the inside of my leg itches incredibly bad I have had this for about 7 years and im not sure what it is?
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

Often one gets this infliction from grass fields. Consult doc for treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
Rule out skin cancer: Itching suggests the body's effort to heal a wound as the nerves try to regenerate. But the fact that a scab persists and the wound will not heal suggests that there may be atypical cells. These cells could be skin cancers, either basal cell or squamous cell. In addition, if there is a history of a pigmented lesion, this could be a melanoma. You need to see a physician who will perform a biopsy. ...Read more

Twitches: These may be muscular contractions or irritability of a nerve in the thigh. If other areas of the body also have spasms, we check for magnesium or calcium deficiencies. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate these types of symptoms.If the symptoms remain localized to the inner leg only, a systemic problem is unlikely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
