17 month old in day care, red spotty rash on abdomen and back, spreading to arms and legs. Temp 39.4 (17 days ago), think that was hand foot mouth?

Unlikely: HFM can have spots/blisters in these locations.However, the presentation usually starts with small blisters in the back of the mouth, followed by distinctive blisters (oval and grayish) located in other sites.The fingers/hand/wrist are common as are the foot and ankle.The peri-anal region is also common. The rash you describe is non specific and could have been many things,HFM is unlikely. ...Read more

Nothing to do: Henry, the fact that you can see your veins is due to your fair skin. Nothing can really be done about this, however it isn't harmful. If you experience pain or swelling, see your doctor. ...Read more

My 81-old brother has been dealing with severe itching on both arms  and legs. In fact drawing blood and complete red bloches. He is a diabetic and takes insulin.

04/12/12 Extensive : 04/12/12 extensive itching about the body can be caused by many thuings. In the elderly, the most common cause is dry skin from insufficient bathing, and not enough moisturizers. It also could be a fragrance allergy to a chemical in the current soap, lotion, fabric softener, or detergent. Less commonly, it could be a drug reaction to a new pill, or a sign of liver, thyroid, kidney disease, or anemia. Diabetes itself can be associated with itchy skin. A thorough history and physical exam by a dermatologist should help determine what is causing the itching, along with some blood tests. ...Read more

Concerning: your symptoms are rather concerning. A list of what this could be is rather long. You need to see your doctor for examination and testing sooner rather than later. Sorry this was not more helpful. Best of luck ...Read more

Hard,swollen cord/rope-like vein (I think great saphenous vein)along whole leg. Can only go to GP in 2 days.So terrified of DVT/other serious problem?

Hard,swollen cord/rope-like vein (I think great saphenous vein)along whole leg. Can only go to GP in 2 days.So terrified of DVT/other serious problem?

Superficial clot.: What you describe sounds like a clotted greater saphenous vein. This would present as a palpable cord along anywhere from the medial ankle to the upper thigh. This is called superficial phlebitis but there is always a chance that this can extend into the deep system to cause DVT. You should have a venous ultrasound and see a vein specialist as soon as possible or go to the ER for evaluation. ...Read more

Screen autoimmune: There are multiple joints involved which are painful. This complaint may indicate arthritis and/or autoimmune disease. I would recommend screening tests for autoimmune disease and having an evaluation of your renal function. Your doctor will discuss these possibilities with you further. I hope that this helps. ...Read more

I turn red and blotchy on my chest, neck, upper back and face in social situations, even when i'm comfortable with the people i'm with. Ideas?

I turn red and blotchy on my chest, neck, upper back and face in social situations, even when i'm comfortable with the people i'm with. Ideas?

Don't worry: Idiopathic craniofacial erythema may be the basis. Some people also experience sweating. It's not caused by anxiety - just normal arousal - but it can cause anxiety. Hopefully, you can avoid that or w/ cbt dispel it quickly. You may just have an overactive sympathetic nervous system. If it's not too bad, nothing needs to be done. Or, you can consult a neurologist. Stay comfortable and well. Best! ...Read more

DVT: Fidgeting may be better than nothing on such a long trip but not a true substitute for walking around. If completely unable to walk then flex your foot and calves frequently to try and keep blood moving. ...Read more

Spider veins on tops of my legs, if i started running (similar exercise) so the blood circulated better would they reduce?

Spider veins on tops of my legs, if i started running (similar exercise) so the blood circulated better would they reduce?

Doubtful.: Spider veins are due to many factors including hereditary, trauma, sun exposure and , in women, pregnancies. Frequently they are also due to an underlying valve insufficiency reflux) and this can only be seen on a venous reflux ultrasound. Non traumatic exercise such as biking, spinning and ellipticals are good for the veins but running and pounding of the legs on pavement or a treadmill is not. ...Read more
