Which stds causes itchy skin hive like rash all over body?

Which stds causes itchy skin hive like rash all over body?

Probably no STD: Syphilis can cause a body-wide rash, but not hive-like and usually not itchy. If you think you're at risk for STDs, get tested. But an STD is not a likely cause of this rash. Most rashes like this are due to drug allergy -- which could include an STD drug if you're on treatment. In that case, contact the doctor treating you. Good luck!

Itchy skin. No rash. Why does scratching cause bruising?

Trauma: To the small blood vessels under the skin causes them to break and bleed resulting in bruising. Also, as one ages, the skin becomes more thin, less elastic and fragile. If you are on Aspirin or other blood thinners, this will aggregate this mechanism.

Hello Dr. I am taking doxycycline now day 7 and my face is broke out into an itchy rash. I too 10 ml of childrens byenadryl because that is all I have?

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): 10 ml of oral solution is 25 mg, you can double that if no improvement, i.e. 50 mg/dose, if reaction is more severe go to ER or call 911. Stop the doxycycline, and call your doctor/prescriber, best wishes

Itchy skin rash all over body (except for face, neck, palms and soles) for 14 days. NO fever, NO flu-like symptons, NO lymph node. Can it be HIV ARS?

Itchy skin rash all over body (except for face, neck, palms and soles) for 14 days. NO fever, NO flu-like symptons, NO lymph node. Can it be HIV ARS?

Rash: It sounds more likely that it is an allergic reaction to something. The fact that it is not on the palms and soles of your feet makes other bad things less likely. Skin rashes are hard to diagnose and the diagnosis depends on where the rash is, the color, whether there are blotches, raised bumps and many other things. You can buy benadryl (diphenhydramine) in the pharmacy for itching and if it persists see DR.
