I have very itchy skin all over my body. Mainly legs and stomach areas. There are no bumps or rashes anywhere. Mainly happens when showering/sleeping?
Itching: Generalized itching without associated rash is often due to very dry skin. After showering, rub in a moisturizing substance like keri lotion to restore oils to your skin. Other causes could be diabetes, prickly heat, thyroid disorder or certain malignancies like lymphoma. A dermatologist could advise you and order any appropriate tests. ...Read more
Itching skin: Without rash more than likely from dry skin especially due to weather and using warm/ hot water for washing and baths. Use skin cleansers for baths and apply any moisturizing lotion or cream to affected areas. Take oral histamines if itching really bad. May use otc Hydrocortisone cream or any topical itch cream available if needed. Consult w your physician if you have other signs and symptoms! ...Read more

I have itchy skin every where no dry skin and when it itches it starts to burn and get red but no bumps or rash what is this?
Well: It gets red and itches then goes away, no rash or bumps. It could be a rash or what is called idiopathic urticaria, release of inflammation due to stress. Oddlly enough sometimes an h-2 bkocker like tagamet for the the stomach can help. It may be allergic reaction or something else and I would not avoid seeing a doctor. I would trey Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and tagamet is pretty cheap. Look up idiop. ...Read more

Diabetes?: Diabetics have frequent urination if it is not under control. As well, diabetes is associated with dry skin, skin rash, eczema. ..

My 16 year old daughter has itchy skin (legs only) no visable rash - when she scratches for a while some bumps like mosquito bites faintly appear?
I have been experiencing itchy skin without bumps or a rash. I have also been experiencing numbness and a tingling sensation in my feet and arms?
Itchy skin turns into fast spreading rash like bumps when scratched. Both arms and right leg. Do have allergies & asthma. Not on meds for allergies.
Happy to help.: There are a couple of possibilities. First, dermatographism is a condition where scratching or marking the skin causes hives. Second, hives can arise without scratching as well. Antihistamines like Zyrtec/Allegra can help. If this persists, I'd recommend seeing an allergist who can allergy test you and help determine if other conditions are present. ...Read more

Probably no STD: Syphilis can cause a body-wide rash, but not hive-like and usually not itchy. If you think you're at risk for STDs, get tested. But an STD is not a likely cause of this rash. Most rashes like this are due to drug allergy -- which could include an STD drug if you're on treatment. In that case, contact the doctor treating you. Good luck! ...Read more
Itchy skin rash all over body (except for face, neck, palms and soles) for 14 days. NO fever, NO flu-like symptons, NO lymph node. Can it be HIV ARS?
Rash: It sounds more likely that it is an allergic reaction to something. The fact that it is not on the palms and soles of your feet makes other bad things less likely. Skin rashes are hard to diagnose and the diagnosis depends on where the rash is, the color, whether there are blotches, raised bumps and many other things. You can buy benadryl (diphenhydramine) in the pharmacy for itching and if it persists see DR. ...Read more

Keep a diary of what you ate or what you were doing when the itchy bumps appeared. For relief Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is helpful but may cause drowsiness.
