Hive & rash: You have urticaria or allergic dermatitis, it is best if you see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment, at the mean time try an antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) hydrocortisone cream, but you need to find out what you are allergic to. Good luck

B 12 deficiency?: There are several possibilities. One possibility is that you have a vitamin b 12 deficiency, which can case the skin to itch. If you take b 12 use the sublingual under the tongue type for more absorption. Check w/your doc to make sure it is not something else.

Could be chiggers..: Chigger bites are caused by mites which burrow themselves underneath skin causing little rashes like those in picture here. They can be intensely itchy especially at night when these creatures are active--they actually move in these burrows in the dark, thus more itching at night. Often one gets this infliction from grass fields. Consult doc for treatment. Good luck.

I have a scab about the size of a dime on my leg that itches and won't heal?

I have a scab about the size of a dime on my leg that itches and won't heal?

Rule out skin cancer: Itching suggests the body's effort to heal a wound as the nerves try to regenerate. But the fact that a scab persists and the wound will not heal suggests that there may be atypical cells. These cells could be skin cancers, either basal cell or squamous cell. In addition, if there is a history of a pigmented lesion, this could be a melanoma. You need to see a physician who will perform a biopsy.

Nondiagnostic: Your description of the skin lesion is too nonspecific to make a diagnosis. It will have to be inspected by your physician or dermatologist in order to advise you.

My 12 year old son's lower left leg really stated bothering him. He says it itches on the inside and feels like it's having spaziums?

My 12 year old son's lower left leg really stated bothering him. He says it itches on the inside and feels like it's having spaziums?

Twitches: These may be muscular contractions or irritability of a nerve in the thigh. If other areas of the body also have spasms, we check for magnesium or calcium deficiencies. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate these types of symptoms. If the symptoms remain localized to the inner leg only, a systemic problem is unlikely.

I have this bump on my leg and it itches but there is a black thing in the middle of it and it kinda feels hot to touch to me but not others?

I have this bump on my leg and it itches but there is a black thing in the middle of it and it kinda feels hot to touch to me but not others?

Get it checked: An itchy bump doesn't sound too worrisome, but anytime we hear there is pigmentation, "a black thing", we have more concern for skin cancer. For us a picture would help, but probably best to have your doctor take a look at it. Good luck!

Leg itch: A natural question would be to ask if you came in contact with Poison Ivy or Poison Oak. 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.
