Try hydrocortisone: Contact in this area is unsual. Something you always keep in your pocket (usually a metal like coins or keys) is about the only thing that would cause a contact dermatitis. Try Hydrocortisone cream and if it doesn't respond, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Many causes: But at this age, this is how eczema (atopic dermatitis) often presents itself. Cow's milk and egg are the most likely allergens. However a viral infection or drug reaction may also present in this manner. If there is pus, then impetigo should be ruled out. If the problem persists, see your doctor. ...Read more

Dr, I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?

Probably not: But you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more

Itchy skin turns into fast spreading rash like bumps when scratched. Both arms and right leg. Do have allergies & asthma. Not on meds for allergies.

Happy to help.: There are a couple of possibilities. First, dermatographism is a condition where scratching or marking the skin causes hives. Second, hives can arise without scratching as well. Antihistamines like Zyrtec/Allegra can help. If this persists, I'd recommend seeing an allergist who can allergy test you and help determine if other conditions are present. ...Read more
