Hi.im a G6PD patient.and last 2 days ive been suspected with dengue fever.now my whole body are felt itchy. Is that confirm dengue?

Itching?: Itching can happen with or without dengue, so itching does not confirm nor deny dengue. Dengue testing is of 2 types: antibody testing or PCR testing. Antibody testing looks for one's immune system's response to the virus (one's body makes antibodies against the virus). PCR testing looks for actual pieces of virus material, such as the RNA genetic material in the virus. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Unlikely: These symptoms can be interpreted many ways, but if leukemia were present (which is very improbable) the symptoms would not improve, but get progressively worse. Sounds as if you have been reading texts looking for a diagnosis and are learning that there is more to medical practice than is written down. See a good clinician. Good luck and get better soon. ...Read more

Is allergy an inborn condition?I never had an unpleasant skin allergy(very itchy skin rashes) before until I turned 21.

Is allergy an inborn condition?I never had an unpleasant skin allergy(very itchy skin rashes) before until I turned 21.

Yes and no: While you may be born with a propensity toward developing allergies genetically, you actually have to be exposed to an allergen before you become allergic to it. It could happen the first time you are exposed or the hundredth. I, like you, did not start having hayfever symptoms until I was in my 20's. Yet every fall when ragweed is out, symptoms start unless I take my meds during that time of year ...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?

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
