How do I treat small random itchy blisters on my skin. Mostly on my hands, some on my arms and less on my legs & feet. Worsens when I am in the sun

Try 1% hydrocortison: It's tough to say what might be causing these. Bug bites would be the most common, but some people can actually be allergic to the sun (polymorphous light eruption, lupus, or porphyria). Try over the counter 1% Hydrocortisone cream for the itching, and use a mineral based sunscreen with zinc and titanium as the only active ingredients. If that doesn't help, definitely see your dermatologist. ...Read more

3 days after sex I got small itchy bumps and few blisters on my arms, thighs, legs, hand and feet (not on my genitals or mouth), could this be herpes?

Herpes simplex: That is certainly possible, but without seeing the rash it would be foolish to try and diagnose it. It may not have had anything to do with the sex and you may have chicken pox or some other illness, or this may be a contact dermatitis. ...Read more

I have got red itchy dots all over my arms and legs and they won't go away?

Itchy rash on limbs: Any time you have a rash and it won't go away, all we can do is advise that you see a doctor. Rashes can't be diagnosed without being seen. There are too many possibilities. Dermatologists have to learn about 600 rashes; the rest of us don't even try to learn that many! Best wishes! Until you see someone, you could take an antihistamine for the itching, though--allegra, zyrtec, claritin, benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

Bedbugs: It sounds like something is biting you. It could be many different things, but the most likely culprit is bedbugs. Take the sheets off the bed and look in the seams of the mattress and pillows for little black bugs. They are the size of coursely ground pepper. If you find them, put them into a bag and have your primary doctor or dermatologist look at the bug. Bed bugs are easily recognized. ...Read more

My brother has scattered, non-itchy red dots on his arms and legs and has had this for nearly two weeks. Cause for concern? Why does he have them?

My brother has scattered, non-itchy red dots on his arms and legs and has had this for nearly two weeks. Cause for concern? Why does he have them?

Could be of concern!: Good morning,
non-itchy, scattered red dots are more of a concern that the pruritic type. Conditions such as purpura, a blood disorder of different type, even though unusual need to be ruled out. Cutaneous vasculitis (immune disorder of blood vessels), again scarce, or blood vessel diseases of unknown cause, or platelet dysfunctions are of serious nature. If the rash persists, see your doctor. ...Read more

Sounds like hives: Which can be triggered by allergies, & stress. Sometimes an antihistamine like benadryl, (diphenhydramine) claritin, allegra, or zyrtec can help, as well as avoiding any triggers. Sometimes it can be associated w celiac disease and/or wheat allergy. Nickel can be another trigger. If it worsens please see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a weird rash that just showed up because my arms and legs get really itchy? I haven't eaten or done anything strange? What could be wrong?

Hmmm, mystery?: Rashes can be very difficult to figure out because so many things can trigger them, from insect bites, to foods, to infections. Sometimes even stress can provoke an itchy rash. If you have fever, shortness of breath, wheezing, throat swelling or facial swelling, go to a clinic or hospital immediately. If not, keep the skin clean and dry, drink plenty of water, and see a doctor if it persists. ...Read more

I am constantly itchy at night, especially in my arms and legs. What can that be from?

I am constantly itchy at night, especially in my arms and legs. What can that be from?

Typically: Typically itching is due to an allergic reaction. The hard part is trying to figure out the cause. If it's at night then maybe it is something you are eating or drinking in the evening, a new blanket or sheets, possibly even a new detergent or soap you are using. Eliminating your exposure and foods one at a time will be time consuming yet may help reveal the cause.
You could also visit your doctor for an evaluation to rule out other causes and possibly allergy testing if deemed necessary.
Good luck. ...Read more
