Itchy red bite-like blotch on Achilles' tendon. Thought it was a bite. Hasn't gone away in 3weeks. Size of thumb, bumpy?

Hard to say: Without seeing it, but I'd advise you to have it checked out since it doesn't belong. If you wanted to try something prior to seeing a doctor I would try a topical OTC steroid cream. I.e 1percent hydrocortisone. ...Read more

Hi is it possible to be allergic to certain shoes? I have itchy bumps on both my Achilles' tendons and up both legs...? Thanks

Hi is it possible to be allergic to certain shoes? I have itchy bumps on both my Achilles' tendons and up both legs...? Thanks

Allergy to anything: is possible, Why? Allergy reflects a human response, often involving immune system, & humans (as sensitive intelligent creatures) can respond in all kinds of ways to almost any stimulus, situation or thing. All this is coordinated at a mind/brain level, yet often promoted as only a mysterious body response with treatments for only symptom(s) offered/promoted. Bigger picture routinely more helpful. ...Read more

I have a reaction to steri strips for my Achilles rupture surgery 2 weeks ago. What can I put on the hives? Itchy and painful, don't want to scratch.

I have a reaction to steri strips for my Achilles rupture surgery 2 weeks ago. What can I put on the hives? Itchy and painful, don't want to scratch.

See your surgeon: Achilles' tendon repair incisions can be 'tricky' as the tendon is nearly subcutaneous. Any non- healing wounds here or incisional 'rashes' should be seen by your surgeon promptly to avoid skin/ wound breakdown.In my experience the reaction to the steri-strips is usually a reaction to the benzoin used to keep the strips' sticky'and not the strips themselves. See your surgeon! Best of Luck! ...Read more

I am going to disney world and I have a keloid scar in my Achilles tendon. Are there ways to cure this?

I am going to disney world and I have a keloid scar in my Achilles tendon. Are there ways to cure this?

Steroid Injections: If this is a true keloid scar, you can get improvement in the appearance of the scarring by flattening it out with serial steroid injections. I like to use kenalog (triamcinolone) 10 and have the patients come in at monthly intervals, usually about 3, for injections. Your scarring may be a hypertrophic scar instead of a keloid because it is in a location of motion. See your doctor for options. ...Read more
