Itchy rash: From the characteristics of the rash, you should still consider insect bites, especially if only exposed skin is affected as well as if anyone else is affected. You should allow the skin to heal by avoid scratching. Use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help decrease the itching. Use Neosporin on any open sores to cut down on infection. Ultimately, you should see your doc and maybe a Dermatologist for more help. ...Read more

My arms and legs get itchy and when I scratch it leaves round dark scab marks on my legs and arms I use moisture lotions for dry skin every day, but I still don't know what this is
Sounds: Sounds like you might have eczema or possibly prurigo nodularis. I would recommend you try a cerave cream to moisturize and use cerave hydrating cleanser which is very mild and tends to not dry out the skin. Also, try to avoid scratching as best as possible. If not better quickly, consult your local dermatologist who will be able to evaluate you and determine the diagnosis, and who might prescribe some topical steroid creams, anti-itch pills, or other therapy that will improve you more quickly. ...Read more

I have a rash on my inner thigh. It is unilateral, not painful, not itchy but has come up with lesions and scabs. Herpes? Or something else?
Herpes? Shingles?: If "lesions" means blisters or sores and rash is recent (a few days) and not long lasting, I would be more suspicious of herpes zoster (shingles). Genital herpes also is possible. Or a simple allergic reaction, or any of several other kinds if dermatitis. Earlier makes diagnosis easier and is very important for successful treatment of either herpes or shingles, so see a doctor ASAP. ...Read more
