See dermatologist: The betamethasone cream only reduces the inflammation and does nothing on the cause for your rash. Thus the rash will return within days after you stop using the cream. You need to consult a dermatologist to try to find out the cause. ...Read more

Red Itchy rash that turned dark no other symptoms but fatigue have been on him for 2 weeks now WBC was high could this be mold realted?

Red Itchy rash that turned dark no other symptoms but fatigue have been on him for 2 weeks now WBC was high could this be mold realted?

Tick-Born Illness?: I will presume that 'on him' should read 'on abx' for 2 weeks. It sounds as though the treating clinician may have suspected a tick-born source of your rash in the setting of fatigue and prescribed a prolonged course of antibiotics to treat. Mold allergy (any allergy) can cause a variety of symptoms, including rash, but treatment for mold would not require antibiotics. ...Read more

What might cause dry itchy dark patch, itchy breast, itchy rash on back waist area, sudden weight gain, feeling full, daily headaches. And more.

See a physician ASAP: I realize that you are suffering, but you are not giving me enough details to give you specific advice. Itchy rashes can be associated with some weight gain if there is some swelling. However, daily headache, feeling lightheaded are not part of it.

It is important to : Seperate these phenomen. The period is not related to rash onset.

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
