My ears get red & itchy at night?

Itchy red ears: Wonder if you may have allergy to something you're exposed to at night, because allergies do get worse at night and extended exposure is typical for them. What you may be allergic to remains open. Look for potential allergens in your bedroom - pillow, bedding, mites, bed bugs, detergents, personal hygiene items to name a few. ...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

Woke up with red spots on 1 leg. Next day more red spots and on both lower legs. Spots are itchy, slight bump in center. Dry, irritant throat @ night.

Possible reaction: It is difficult to assess without seeing the lesions but it can represent a bite or even represent a reaction to a viral upper respiratory infection. I would see a physician so that they can perform the appropriate evaluation or tests for this if it does not improve. ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

Cannot diagnose: But this sounds as if you should be seen by a doctor, examined and diagnosed and managed based upon what may be going on. This could be an acute viral illness, a tick-borne disease, or one of a dozen other diagnoses. You should be seen sooner than later. Good luck and hope this clears up quickly. ...Read more

Many: There are many potential causes for itchy bumps but if benadryl (diphenhydramine) helps, you may continue with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and a non-sedating antihistamine during the day. If the problem worsens or persists beyond 6 weeks, see an allergist or dermatologist. My initial take is that you are either having a viral infection or a drug reaction. ...Read more

A few things: It is hard to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. It may be eczema or you may be having an allergic reaction to something, you may be having a reaction due to a change in your detergent or something like that. If you would like to make an appointment with me i can give you a proper diagnosis and give you some meds to relieve your symptoms. ...Read more
