Itchy Achilles Tendon
Itchy red bite-like blotch on Achilles' tendon. Thought it was a bite. Hasn't gone away in 3weeks. Size of thumb, bumpy?
Itchy bumps on the both achilles' tendons, flesh colored, bleed when scratched. Not spreading, but not going away. Live in cold chicago.
I have a reaction to steri strips for my Achilles rupture surgery 2 weeks ago. What can I put on the hives? Itchy and painful, don't want to scratch.
See your surgeon: Achilles' tendon repair incisions can be 'tricky' as the tendon is nearly subcutaneous. Any non- healing wounds here or incisional 'rashes' should be seen by your surgeon promptly to avoid skin/ wound breakdown.In my experience the reaction to the steri-strips is usually a reaction to the benzoin used to keep the strips' sticky'and not the strips themselves. See your surgeon! Best of Luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

An exam with possible MRI may be needed if you already have not had one yet. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
