Hives/Urticaria: Sounds like hives. Most common cause is infection (often very minor in nature) resulting in activation of innate immune/autoimmune pathways in skin that trigger mast cells. Usually, hives resolve and we never know the cause. For other causes: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/137362-overview#aw2aab6b2b3aa. A virtual consult to discuss triggers can help. If no contraindications, try otc Zyrtec (cetirizine) ...Read more

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read more

I have two lumps on side of neck one for a year the other just appeared and two behind ears.relation to psoriasis? They are itchy and hard what is thi

Likely not: The lesions you described do not appear to be from psoriasis. You may try some Hydrocortisone cream on them to see if it helps. If not , consult your doctor. I have seen this on some patients who have vitamin D3 deficiency and thus you should get a blood test to see if you are indeed low in this vitamin. ...Read more

Hard lumps: Since the lumps are bilateral one has to consider the possibility of erythema nodosom. This a rash that can appear s a result of many illnesses such as strep, tb, sarcoidosis, but basically the cause is unknown. If you are in pain you can take ibuprofen. Warm bathes can also ease the pain. The important thing is to see your doctor to see if he can establish a cause. ...Read more

Dermatographic urticaria for over a year, 3 hard immobile lumps under skin,  very itchy skin. What could this be ? I am 23 and cancer is in my family.

A few things: The most common causes of "lumps under the skin" (mobile or nonmobile) are lipomas (growth of fatty tissue) or cysts, which are both benign but can cause problems if they continue to grow. I don't think the itchy skin is related. There are various other growths/tumors that can present like this. I recommend having it evaluated by a dermatologist to determine if these should be excised. ...Read more

Incomplete info: Where is the lump? Ointment is not likely to be of much use if the lump is under the skin. If the lump doubles in size, more lumps appear, if the lump ulcerates or the top of the lump becomes red, or if you get fever, it would prudent to see a doctor. Otherwise you may watch and wait. ...Read more
