Unsure of cause: Generalized itching can be from any number of causes including severe liver or kidney problems. However, it is much more commonly from dry/irritated skin. Excessive scratching induces more skin irritation and often makes it worse. If no other symptoms, try aggressive skin moisturization for a week (multiple times a day and always after bathing when skin is moist) with non-alcohol based lotion. ...Read more

I've got one small blister like bump at my private parts it itches now and then is it something to worry about?

Yes: Without an exam, I can only give general information and
dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. BUT
can be genital herpes; you would benefit by knowing about it. HSV comes and goes exactly like a cold sore, so the implied chronicity goes against that and a wart or an infected duct are other TREATABLE possibilities. ...Read more

Do I have lme disease? I got a tick bite on my upper thigh about half a year ago. It spread to other parts of my legs, itches a lot, but I don't have any of the other symptoms. I misspelld: the question is do I have Lyme diease?

The: The rash associated with lyme disease is called erythema migrans and it looks like a target or bulls-eye. It usually starts at the site of the tick bite 3-30 days after the bite (average 7 days) and then can spread to other parts of the body. The rash typically doesn't last more than a month and is rarely itchy. An itchy rash appearing 6 months after a tick bite would not be related to lyme disease. Other kinds of ticks can spread other organisms besides lyme such as "southern tick associated rash illness" or rocky mountain spotted fever, so if you think you have an abnormal rash related to a previous tick bite, contact your doctor.

Below I've attached a website with tons of good information on lyme disease. Good luck! ...Read more

Butt itches bad. Could be dry skin. On which parts of the butt area is hydrocortisone not recommended?

Butt itches bad. Could be dry skin. On which parts of the butt area is hydrocortisone not recommended?

Hard to say: The most delicate skin on the buttocks would be the area around the anus. Hydrocortisone would need to be used carefully there. However, some causes of itching in that area would not respond to hydrocortisone. Pin worms for one, yeast or fungal infection for another, and a bacterial infection also wouldn't do well with hydrocortisone. ...Read more

Allergist: Going outdoors with the resultant temperature change and/ or certain activities may release histamine or other substances that causes the itching reaction. Apparently you don't break out in a rash such as hives or angioedema. Taking a nonsedating antihistamine like claritin (loratadine) before you go out may prevent this reaction. An allergist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more
