Itchy rash on shins?

Itchy rash on shins?

Best to see doctor: Hard to say without more information to help pin down the cause, and even then, rashes can be tough to diagnose without seeing them! i think i'd recommend a visit to your doctor. In the meantime, for the itching cool compresses, or lotions containing calamine or pramoxine would be good over-the-counter anti-itch treatment. ...Read more

Itchy rash with bumps. Really itchy at night on shins and forearms?

Possobly hives: If the itchy bumps go away in 24 hrs, and then come back; or they have an appearance of " moving around", they are probably hives. But there are a lot of skin rashes looking like itchy bumps, like bug bites.... Better to consult a dermatologist or allergist to make a diagnosis. ...Read more

I am a male, 81 years old.  I recently experienced clear discharges from both nipples, but mostly from the left.  I am also experiencing burning, itchy rashes around both nipples, on my arms, and my shins.  I am getting symptomatic relief from triamcinolo

Doctor can evaluate: A doctor will have to get more of the story about the nipples, and do an exam (one can start with his primary care doctor). Nipple rashes can be from friction (from shirts, sports equipment like swimming in an inner tube, etc...), eczema, cancer, etc... Nipple discharges can be from hormonal imbalances, which may be due to hormone-producing glands, liver disease, medications, etc... ...Read more

I keep getting rashes everytime I go to the country (my whole family does)! This itchy rash also prevents me from sleep at night! What to do?

See dermatologist: If this happens when you are in the countryside , you are likely allergic to something outdoors or even to the sun. I would suggest that you consult a dermatologist to find out the cause. Certainly poison oak/poison ivy is a factor to be considered especially since its resin on contaminated articles may remain potent for months. ...Read more
