A rash needs to be seen by a practitioner. If you get a rash shortly after beginning a new medication, stop the medication and see your physician. Read more
Hello! I keep getting these skin rashes that itch and turns into dry skin that I can peel off. What is going on?
I have tiny flesh colored rashes on my forearms. They look like goosebumps. Also dry circular patches of dry skin. What could it be?
Doctor can examine: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be. For common rashes such as eczema, mild reactions to plants or chemicals, excessive dryness, or little itchy bumps, over-the-counter hydrocortisone 1% cream usually helps. Itchy bumps on many body parts might be an allergic reaction to something or from other causes. Read more
Have few circular rashes on chest, one went away, outer edge has a red, inflamed ring with white center that has really dry skin. Dry skin/worse?
Wish I had picture!: Dermatology questions are so hard without seeing the rash! round rash with central clearing usually are from fungus commonly known as ringworm. Is anybody else have it? Ringworm is itchy and you didn't mention that. I'm curious what you have tried to treat it and if u r using any new soaps or creams. Try an over-the-counter fungal ointment twice/day and for 2 weeks past when u can't see rash. Read more
Rule out low thryoid: You should see a doctor to have your thyroid checked and find out what the rash is. If s/he thinks you are depressed or nervous, s/he may treat you or refer you to a psychologist or psychiatrist depending on the severity of the situation. Most psych conditions, even if brought on by a physical problem, respond best to a combination of therapy and medications, especially medications if severe. Read more

Yes: And in the case of dry skin, one may see small raised bumps especially at the extremities. These will often be prevented by using a moisturizer with 3 minutes after bathing. A rash can also be induced by scratching as well. Some skin rashes are caused by allergies (often contact, drug etc) while many are not. Read more
No: Head lice are actually more dependent on the shape and nature of the hair shaft, not of the condition of your scalp. They like to attach to fine, thin hairs. You also need to be exposed to get head lice - they don't just happen because of any skin conditions. However, once your scalp is infested, irritation from them biting the scalp can certainly lead to intense itching and scalp irritation. Read more
What to do to prevent heel rashes in winter? Also suggest ointment or medicine for dry skin and lips also. Thank u
Insane itchy heel in early mornings, wakes me up every night. Won't let me sleep anymore. No visible rashes. No dry skin. What is it what do I do?
Hormonal control.: Night time itching is commonly treated with anti fungal and steroid creams, and if it works, great. Too often though, there are no outward appearances of skin disruption, dryness or infestation. In those cases, the topical treatments are useless. It is thought that perhaps, the effect of what is known as the circadian rhythm, may be the underlying cause. You need to see a competent specialist. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I get dry skin and rashes on my lower legs. Tried moisturizers but none of them seem to work. What could that be?
What does it mean if you have low segmented neutrophils (35.5%) and high lymphocytes (54.9%)? I have dry skin, usually with rashes and also headache
Nothing by itself: Absolute counts on CBC's are what matters. Some folks simply run low neutrophils from time to time or for a lifetime, and lab reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. This won't explain your skin troubles or headaches. Your physician's your best guide here. Best wishes. Read more
