Itchy back: You might be allergic to your shampoo or another hair care product. Without a medical exam it would be difficult to say.

Skin: Hypothyroidis even uncorrected would unlikely to cause the skin lesions you described. I think at this time you need to have a work up to rule out other autoimmune diseases. Also, seeing a dermatologist would be helpful. ...Read more

7 year old developed itchy rash first on back of neck later in day it spread to arms, stomach and legs no other symptoms, what is it and what to do?

Hard to say: If the rash is moving from a local to a general distribution it is unlikely a simple contact dermatitis like poison ivy. Generalized rashes can be secondary to an infection (virus or bacteria) a food reaction or bug bites. Without examining the rash it is hard to speculate on a cause or specific treatment. If it itches, Benadryl can be given for comfort. ...Read more

3yr old Raised itchy rash over back of neck arms and legs only. No fever. Just recovered from general virus. What could it be? Exclude from kindy?

Mgt: From your description there may be an allergic reaction. I would advise letting your PCP know and a dose of over the counter children's anti histamine such as Claritin (loratadine) may be used. It may be related to the virus or an allergic trigger. Your PCP will obtain a history including whether there were new foods, medications, lotions etc. ...Read more

What might cause dry itchy dark patch, itchy breast, itchy rash on back waist area, sudden weight gain, feeling full, daily headaches. And more.

See a physician ASAP: I realize that you are suffering, but you are not giving me enough details to give you specific advice. Itchy rashes can be associated with some weight gain if there is some swelling. However, daily headache, feeling lightheaded are not part of it. Also, collapse and pain, and more are too broad terms that need to be evaluated in more detail. Start by seeing your primary care physician asap! ...Read more

Itchy skin rash on back of thighs for over a year using steriod cream but comes back after a week each time. Also using dermol 500 in shower?

Agree and...: You don't give us much information but is it small sandpaper "goosebumps"? If so, may be keratosis pilaris which is famous for coming back again & again. This rash is caused by keratin plugs in hair follicles and is worse in winter & in those with dry skin, eczema. When you see the doctor, they would treat it with retin a, or cream with vitamin d, urea, lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid. ...Read more
