Itchy Rash On Calf Muscles
I have flat, not itchy rash on my calf muscle. It started as very light dots but it grew and became more red with time what could it possibly be?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
Small itchy rash on calf, not sure if it could be bug bites, poision ivy, herpes (history of genital herpes), or something else.
After I drink several glasses of red wine, my right calf swells up, my leg aches, and I get an itchy rash behind my knee. What's going on?
Reaction to sulfites: Is possible. Sometimes, more expensive red wines can contain sulfites. I don't know why your left calf will be spared though. Stick with cheap white wine. ...Read more

Itchy rash. Small bumps, lines, & splotches. Has spread over 4days to everywhere but my face. Concentrated around butt/leg. Did not change lifestyle.
I have derm appt - but in mean time I have red bumpy ITCHY rash on part of lower right leg. It's now started on left. What could this be?!
Could be minor...: Dermatology is all about appearance. I am guessing it is an erythematous papule ("red bumpy"), which honestly could be an insect bite, or contact dermatitis, both of which are common. However you mention pregnancy; there is a condition called PUPPP: Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy, which are terribly itchy red bumps! See what the dermatologist thinks! ...Read more

Can hydrocortizone 1% cream be applied for fading of non-itchy rash on leg which is pityriasis rosea herald patch, on skin for almost 2 months, ?
Doubtful: Hydrocortisone is helpful for itchy or inflamed rashes. We believe that pityriasis is caused by a virus and not inflammatory. I would expect a herald patch to be accompanied by others by now. You should consider that this might be another cause such as eczema or lupus. I would recommend an examination. ...Read more
A red itchy rash on the inner side of my leg near the groin area for over 1 month. It decreases when I take anti biotics. I want a permanent solution?
Erythrasma: I assume you used actual antibiotics and not antifungals. You could have Erythrasma which is a bacterial infection that just like fungus affects areas of moist skin. The rash may have well defined borders and may become brownish. Topical and sometimes oral antibiotics are necessary. Keeping the area dry is the way to prevent this. Check that you are in good health for example no diabetes ...Read more
I got bit by a horsefly that got infected, and I got given a penicillin type drug to help it however I've now got a itchy rash on leg. Is it linked?
You need to be: Seen by healthcare provider again to look at the pattern of the rash and skin infection to make sure it is improving on the penicillin type drug. Otherwise, you may need cultures and repeat blood work, or different antibiotic. There are lots of different things that cause rash, but if it was a fly and not a tick, then you should not get Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever or Lyme disease, to rule out. ...Read more

I am experiencing soreness or burning inside of mouth and itchy rash on my leg, I believe I may have gotten poison ivy on my leg and scratched it before noticing what it was and maybe I got it on my mouth. Anything I can do to help relieve my mouth?
Drug reaction?: Only thing I can think of affecting both the mouth and the skin would be a drug reaction. Was there a new drug introduced within 2 weeks prior to onset? I suspect that they are unrelated since poison ivy does not cause mouth problem unless you are chewing it. For sore mouth, try switching to Biotene toothpaste. For the skin, topical hydrocortisone. See allergist if not better. ...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?
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
