Cholinergic Hives: Cholinergic urticaria is a medical term used to describe a subcategory of physical urticaria (hives). It is characterized by a hypersensitive response in the skin as a result of the body increasing in temperature (passively or actively), or the precipitating release of sweat.

Be seen: You may have a "pinched nerve" in your back. Look out for weakness in the leg and foot as well as bowel or bladder control issues as these may be signs of a severe nerve injury. A doctor can examine you and gauge the severity of your issue and devise a plan for your evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

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?!

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

I noticed white/pink patch on left leg lateral malleolus. It is neither painful nor itchy. Is it  a concern? I am worried .

BIOPSY: Dermatology is, in large part, a visual diagnosis. That being said, anytime I am worried, or you, the patient, is worried, I biopsy the lesion. The exception is when the lesion is so easily diagnosed, which happens many times, a biopsy is not called for. Talk to your doctor. Sincerely, Dr. Latva ...Read more

I got bit by something on my left leg. It's swelling up and about 3 inches big. It's itchy and hurts from time to time. What do I do to get rid of it?

Time: If you're certain that this is a bite and not an infection, then a topical (or oral) steroid and a non-sedating antihistamine may help relieve your symptoms, Only time will "get rid of it." It's important that you find out how this happened to prevent a recurrence. If you have any doubt that it's a bite, you should see a doctor. ...Read more

I have a scaly like rash on my upper left leg. Its not my inner thigh.It's not itchy or burning but is alittle redish. It's been there a while?

I have a  scaly like rash on my upper left leg. Its not my inner thigh.It's not itchy or burning but is alittle redish. It's been there a while?

Possibilities...: Based on your description, eczema come to mind. This can be itchy but not always. Contact dermatitis is usually itchy and it is usually an allergic reaction of some kind. Dry skin can also result in scaly-like eruptions but it likely would not be so isolated. If the patch does not resolve on its own, see your family doctor for diagnosis/treatment. Rashes are easier to diagnose if seen. ...Read more

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits.

Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more

I have herniated disc l5s1 with left leg sciatica and slight foot drop.My foot and ankle have gotten very itchy lately.  Could this be related?

Foot Drop: Is concerning. If you haven't seen a spine specialist, I would do that soon. If the strength in foot is not improving you may need to see a surgeon before more extensive nerve damage occurs. Itching can suggest nerve healing though. ...Read more
