Hot and bothered!: Are you wearing new, unwashed pajamas. Many times new clothes are treated with chemicals that are skin irritants. The fact that you are breaking out at night and early morning maskesme suspect the clothes. Another possibility is that of a heat rash.

Many causes: If it lasts for less than a couple of weeks, then I won't pay much attention to it. But if it gets painful, it may be from shingles and you need to see your doctor ASAP to get started on an anti-viral drug to reduce potential complications. Suspect shingles if the rash does not extend beyond the mid-line of the body. ...Read more

Bites: Keep using the treatment as stated by your doctor, also you should use hot, soapy water to wash all clothing, towels and bedding you used. Dry with high heat. Dry-clean items you can't wash at home. Consider placing items you can't wash in a sealed plastic bag and leaving it in your garage, for a couple of weeks, this will starve the mites.

Antibiotic allergy can cause an itchy rash, sometimes after the antibiotic is already finished. People who have a history of eczema can have itchy rashes appear off and on.

At night my legs and the back of my neck are very itchy. I only sometimes see a rash with small, flat red dots. My roommates have it too. Bedbugs?

Bed bugs: Bed bugs are small insects that bite humans and animals while they sleep. They are not known to transmit disease. Bed bugs affect people differently from no reaction, to itchy bites to an allergic reaction to the bite. Bite marks can take as long as 14 days to appear.

I've had constant itchiness on scalp, neck, forearms, wrists, calves, genitals, abdominal, inner thighes etc. Worse at night, showers soothe...Help?

Depends on the cause: Many, many things cause generalized itching. Itching is almost always worse at night, and showers usually soothe it, whatever the cause. You need an exam to determine the cause. You can try a long-acting antihistamine such as Allegra (fexofenadine) (now over-the-counter), but that just treats the symptoms, not the cause. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

Please: Please schedule a a visit with your primary care provider. You are likely dealing with a throat infection (pharyngitis) which could be bacterial or viral. There are tests that can be done in order to rule out a bacterial cause (strep) in which case you will need antibiotics. Also you may have allergies with resultant post nasal drip that is causing your symptoms, and/or an ear infection. In the meantime take Ibuprofen for pain, warm salt gargles, and a daily anti-histamine.
I hope you find answers and relief soon. ...Read more

I have 2 swollen lymph nodes left posterior neck, 1 groin, fevers, night sweats, weight loss, itchiness, and I'm utterly tired. What's wrong?

See your doctor: Fever, weight loss, night sweats, fatigue, itcheness and enlarged lymph nodes warrant further investigation in any age group and shouldn't be ignored. The constellation of symptoms you are giving can be seen in lymphomas, infections or other systemic illness like sarcoidosis among others. Only a physician can guide you to the next step to find the cause. Please don't wait and see your doc. ...Read more

My back and my neck are itchy what do I do?

Switch-Off That Itch: I'd look in the mirror and see if I had a rash. If I'd been working outdoors or exercising and sweating, I'd take a tepid shower. If I'd just put on some new clothing or some that had been washed in a new detergent, I'd change them. New Jewelry? Take it back for a refund. Just ate out? Or ate something different? Or for anything get some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and see if that helps. If not, and not better, see a doc ...Read more
