Itchy Swollen Forearm
I have 2 insect bites, 1 on my back 1 on my forearm, both swollen and itchy, i have had them for over 6 weeks now! Not painful at all?
Insect bites: BrendanC, 6 weeks seems like quite a long time for insect bites to heal, although this is possible if you are scratching them frequently which can delay healing. Mosquito or spider bites can take a while to heal and can often leave a small lump in the tissue with darkening of the skin which resolves over time. If you have increasing size, redness or pain, you should see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I hit my forearm on the corner of a wall yesterday.It looked okay but it got swollen today.Still no change of color or pain but itchy.what should i do?
It should resolve: It sounds like you are having a reaction to whatever you bumped up against, whether this is an early infection or an allergy like response is unclear. But if you are healthy and otherwise without significant medical problems it should go away on its own. Topical antihistamines may help with the symptoms in the meantime. ...Read more
I have a bite on my right forearm, it has swollen some, is super itchy and is hard and warm to the touch. Kind of a pinkish discoloration. Any idea??
Skin across the shoulders, neck, forearms, a patch on my side above waist, ankle, very quickly intensely itchy, swollen, red, lymph leakage, 1st time.
Hello - my entire forearm is swollen and red and itchy week and a half after bee sting on the wrist - though I think I just pulled the stinger out.
See your doctor: This may still be a normal local reaction to the bee sting, especially if you just pulled the stinger out. Reactions last longer when the stingers are left in. You can try taking oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if you have not already done so. If that does not help and it remains swollen and red, you should see a doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a very tender, swollen spot on my forearm - it is not red and i did not injure it - could it be a blood clot? Yesterday it was itchy.
Insect bite?: Often we get insect bites without even knowing it, spider or Mosquitos or even a bee sting. Your age, risk factors, general health, and recent hiking or travel history might assist diagnosis. And a photo is often most helpful:) be well, drliza (Try over the counter hydrocortisone cream and see what happens if you are not allergic to it) ...Read more
Typically isolated hives, that is painful, itchy swollen, burn, then bruise afterwards. Normally on my forearms but now my neck and under my chin.
Consider your skin: If this persists it should be examined by your doctor. The most common causes would be irritation, contact with something you are allergic to, or hair follicles that are inflamed or infected. The swelling may suggest deeper tissue involvement such as spread of infection or trauma from scratching. If the thigh feels hot, becomes hot or red, seek medical attention sooner rather than later! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
