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

I have this bug bite that has yellowish liquid in it on my left leg near my calf. It is surrounded by red skin. It itches and I am having calf pains?
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

They can be intensely itchy especially at night when these creatures are active--they actually move in these burrows in the dark, thus more itching at night. 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

Exam needed: If the discolored lesion is only days old, it could have been an insect bite with some leakage of blood under the skin. The associated itching makes this more likely but the lesion would clear after 10 days or so. Cortisone type ointment would relieve the itch. If this lesion has been present for weeks it's best to have it examined by your physician or dermatologist. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. A cut which has remained open and is oozing with an itchy rash around it might be infected. When did you have your last tenatus shot? I am answering this five days after you wrote in. If it is still problematic, recommend that you get it assessed. Heat, redness, swelling, red streaks, pus, fever can all be signs of an infection. Check to see if you need to get you tenatus updated. Take care. ...Read more
