What are the side of effects that cause the side of my feet itch more at night by itching it a lot where it shows red small dots from itching it?

Fungus or eczema: You probably have s fungal infection on the plantar aspect of your feet. The fungal infection causes itching, probably more so at night because you are aware of it, since you are barefoot in bed and have more access to your feet. It could also be a contact allergy to a certain pair of shoes or something you have applied to your feet. Your best bet is to try an overt the counter anti fungal cream. ...Read more

The: The answer is simple. If you are self treating with no results and you want to know if it really is a fungal infection, then you need to see your primary care doctor or a dermatologist. A diagnosis can be made and appropriate treatment can be started.
All the best. ...Read more

My skin itches very bad and gets red only during winters, is it because I bath with hot water. Please help. It been 3 years since I have this prob?

If I have a shower I have no problems. If I have a bath, after 10 min, my head itches very strong. Why? Is it a symptom of dermatitis seborroic?

If I have a shower I have no problems. If I have a bath, after 10 min, my head itches very strong. Why? Is it a symptom of dermatitis seborroic?

?: I can't think of a mechanism for this since showering would involve your scalp but bathing likely not. There is a condition known as cholinergic urticaria in which intensely itchy red bumps would develop after a rise in core body temperature, but this does not fit your picture. It is also not suggestive of seborrhea. Suggest you see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Why is my vagina red and itches and feels irritated when I take a bath with soap?

Eczema or intertrigo: Scented soaps can cause this issue in people with sensitive skin or a history of asthma or seasonal allergies. Use unscented soaps only such as dove unscented bar soap or aveeno (oatmeal) skin-relief bodywash to prevent this issue. Take quick, lukewarm showers instead of baths. Also use hypoallergenic laundry detergents. Consult a dermatologist for a prescription to treat the irritation. ...Read more

Itching all over the body. No rash nothing at all. It just itches a lot all over. I put baby oil after I bath still its not okay!! : (?

See dermatologist: If the itching is so bothersome, you should consult a dermatologist since dry skin is apparently not the issue. The itch pathway is far more complex than we had thought and no longer just a matter of histaminic action. (I assume you have tried antihistamine already. If not, you may give it a try). ...Read more

Toddler itches, breaks out during bath b4 any soaps/shampoo are applied. Has reacted this way in other tubs. Allergy towards something in water?

Mgt and workup: I would advise using a very basic soap such as white Dove soap. Avoid all perfumed products including shampoo. The reaction may also be to cleaning products and using natural cleaning products and rinsing the tub well prior to bath time may help.
I would suggest an antihistamine and evaluation. ...Read more

It itches before I start my period. A couple of months ago I had a yeast infection I don't think its that because when I took a bath vinegar it stop?

It itches before I start my period. A couple of months ago I had a yeast infection I don't think its that because when I took a bath vinegar it stop?

Maybe not yeast...: Vinegar doesn't work against yeast infections (or anything else); if the itching improved with a vinegar "bath" it was probably just a coincidence. You may or may not have a yeast infection; other things also can cause genital itching. See a doctor for professional diagnosis and recommended treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

I dusted, vaccumed, used vapor rub, cleaned nose took bath still smell dust, tickle in throat, eyes itch, chest hurts, face itches, inner ears itch.?

Allergies: This sounds like you have some allergies. Dust in homes can be tainted with lead dust, cockroach dander, pet dander, cigarrette smoke, among other toxins and allergic offenders. You need a whopping dose of antihistamine now, say 10 mg cetirizine by mouth. I am worried a little about your chest pain, especially if you have asthma. Do you have an albuterol inhaler at home with spacer? ...Read more

Itch after shower?: How long do you stay in the shower? How hot is the temp? If you stay too long or water too hot, after you dry self with towel, your skin gets wet again with sweat due to the temp on the skin that is not cooled down enough, the skin gets drier and drier. (the skin sweats profusely while under hot shower). If not from that, allergy to the new soap? Or allergy to old soap? Or. Not rinse soap off? ...Read more

It started off as what looked like athletes foot. It spread a bit but started going away. It comes back now n then and itches really bad. What to do?

Two Weeks.: You said nothing about treating it already, so I'm under the impression you didn't. Begin by trying an OTC type anti fungal topical. There are many at the local drug store. If you need help, ask the pharmacist. If there is any doubt that this is not a fungal infection and possibly some other problem, then, see your doctor. You can mix in a little cortisone cream for the severe itching. ...Read more

Years is a long time: With the medical conditions you report I would have thought you would have shown this to one of your doctors by now. Have your family doctor take a look and get it taken care of. It could be eczema, tinea or a callus... thyroid problems can cause skin changes. Or it may be some type of growth. Regardless if it was going to hurt you it would have already so I wouldn't be too worried about it. ...Read more
