One of my students what diagnosed with scabies. I have developed a red rash on my legs but it is flat and not little bumps. It does not itch it burns.
Unlikely scabies: It is unlikely that you were infected with scabies in a normal classroom situation. You would have to be in physical contact for the scabies to transfer from person to person, or clothes to clothes. Scabies is also very itchy usually, so if your rash doesn't itch it is even less likely to be scabies. If you have recently shaved your legs it may be folliculitis, but only an exam can tell. ...Read more

How do you know your fever is viral? You should at least apply a lubricating cream, and probably a cortisone cream. There is no point to excessive water consumption. ...Read more

Could be many things: Eczema, contact dermatitis, or even shingles, if you had chicken pox as a child. However, shingles would be rare in an adolescent with a normal immune system. Try switching to a hypoallergenic laundry detergent and bathe with hypoallergenic soaps. Patients with eczema have higher sensitivity to allergens. See a dermatologist if simple prevention does not help. ...Read more

In any event, if the rash is not spreading you can try Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) creme which is over-the-counter. This should help to clear it up. If the rash is spreading you should probably see a Dermatologist. ...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

One patient developed such a rash after staying in a hotel; my diagnosis was bed-bug-allergy, as the rash was limited to the back of trunk, and back of legs, and the protected areas such as those covered by intimate clothing was not affected.
