They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Line of bumps on my leg not scaly Not bug bite or itchy muscle under it cramps badly, cramping getting worse right below rash. Dime sized bumps

There are few rashes: ...that are truly painful. One of them is Herpes Zoster (shingles). They tend to form linear clusters like you described, Because treatment is available that may hasten the recovery from shingles and prevent lingering pain, I advise you to see a doctor. Keep in mind that this is an educated guess, but a guess nonetheless. Hope this helps! Dr. Anne ...Read more

I have loss of muscle I have burning pains in my back stomach and legs itchy skin burning throat mucousy stools rashes appearing on body any ideas plz?

See a doctor: You describe so many symptoms that it very difficult to tell what is going on, especially without some type of time frame (i.e. How long these symptoms have been going on?) Rashes appearing on your body could be a sign of a serious reaction to something. You should be evaluated by a doctor. Seeing a rash is usually the most important diagnostic technique. ...Read more

Tight right calf muscle for @ 1 week. Worse with rest, seems tingling /burning/ itchy at night in bed. Not hot or discolored. Thoughts?

Tight right calf muscle for @ 1 week. Worse with rest, seems tingling /burning/ itchy at night in bed. Not hot or discolored. Thoughts?

Calf discomfort: One possibility is congestion in the calf veins which builds up during the day's activity on your feet. Elevating the leg should relieve that discomfort, however. Irritability of calf nerves or muscles may be a cause. A blood clot in a calf vein usually is accompanied by swelling and tenderness. It's best to have a physician examine your leg and, if deemed advisable, get an ultrasound of the veins ...Read more

I'm having some abnormal bruising on my upper thigh. I've been itchy due to an allergic reaction n have been scratching my muscle while flexed. Help!

Itching: When you scratch for an extended period of time you may bruise your skin, it will heal on its own but you need to control the itch. Take an antihistamine and apply ice over the area to help with the tenderness. ...Read more

What is it:red rash on my legs, quite symmetrical (not itchy, not flakey, rather discolouration). No other symptoms. Gets more or less red, no pattern?

Rashes: While it is impossible to say with seeing it, my first hunch would be that you are experiencing contact dermatitis. You may have used a new laundry detergent or got a new pair of pants or sox that is causing skin irritation. Try Hydrocortisone 1% cream. If that doesn't work see a dermatologist. ...Read more

I'm reading online that itchy legs are a symptom of cancer! Is this true?

Rarely: Cancer is not a common reason to have itching on your kegs. Internet is not a good source of information about a common probelm which can have many many causes.
I would advise you to see your family doctor for physical examination to determine why you have the itching probelm and offer you treatment. A skin specialist (dermatologist) can also be helpful if the problem continues unabated. ...Read more

I have flu like symptoms and am itchy all over my legs. So much so, im bleeding from itching. Can this just be really bad allergies?

I have flu like symptoms and am itchy all over my legs. So much so, im bleeding from itching. Can this just be really bad allergies?

Itching and a cold: It is not unusual to see itching and rashes, such as hives, in association with viral infections. This is thought to be due to the transient development of circulating immune complexes, an amalgam of antibodies and viral particles which form as the body fights back and clears the infection. These complexes can trigger the release of chemicals, such as histamine, causing itching, not an allergy. ...Read more

I've had general itchiness around body with no rash, bad indigestion, and weakness in legs/ soreness in arms for a week. Are these symptoms related?

Maybe...: This could be related to bad reaction to something you ate which could very well give all these symptoms. You may be also be dealing with a virus which should go away on its own after a few days. However, you are young and female it would also be a good idea to get a pregnancy test. If you feel the same after a couple of days or a lot worse go to the nearest urgent care facility for evaluation. ...Read more

7 year old developed itchy rash first on back of neck later in day it spread to arms, stomach and legs no other symptoms, what is it and what to do?

7 year old developed itchy rash first on back of neck later in day it spread to arms, stomach and legs no other symptoms, what is it and what to do?

Hard to say: If the rash is moving from a local to a general distribution it is unlikely a simple contact dermatitis like poison ivy. Generalized rashes can be secondary to an infection (virus or bacteria) a food reaction or bug bites. Without examining the rash it is hard to speculate on a cause or specific treatment. If it itches, Benadryl can be given for comfort. ...Read more

Can nerve conditions mimic lupus symptoms? I have high ANA but no other positive lupus test. Severe muscle pain and all over itchiness for 1 year.

See derm: Lupus can involve the CNS but you would be expected to have other organ involvement as well. Lups is not associated with itching and thus a dermatology consult may be worthwhile. I presume you have already consulted a rheumatologist. ...Read more
