Itchy Swollen Inner Thigh Symptoms
Common cold like symptoms, swollen glands, rash on inner thighs upper arms and shoulder/back rash is slowly spreading and a little itchy. Help?
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 more
Itchy inner thighs (rashes)swollen large patches. When I spread my legs it's like a half basketball size. Symmetrical. 5days so far. Can't be friction?
Possible: Possibly heat rash. Also may be fungal or even an allergic reaction or sensitivity to your underwear. Consider chaffing gel, and cotton only underwear or boxers. If fungal may benefit from over the counter fungal products. If gets worse or persists, I would seek out an opinion from your family doc to get a look at it and possibly benefit from a prescription. ...Read more

I woke up the other night with 4 what looks like bites but also white so welts but swollen red and itchy but I've had a few on my leg before they alwa?
Hives vs bites: The question is whether these are bites or hives indicating an allergic response to something internal or external. If the welts clear after a day only to appear elsewhere, this would favor an allergic reaction to food,medication,etc rather than insect bites which last several days at each site. Antihistamines relieve hives and the itching of bites. See your MD as needed. ...Read more

I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?
Have it seen: It is difficult to diagnose issues with the skin without having them seen by a physician. As a "very large, swollen, red lump" is not normal on the leg it would be a good idea to have a physician look at it. The fact that the area itches would make me suspicious of possibly it starting out as an insect bite; however, a secondary infection requiring antibiotics is certainly possible. ...Read more

Took doxycyclin for cellulitis on my leg for 21 days. I still have a little bump (bruise looking) and my leg still feels swollen and itchy. Normal?
1 leg or both? Fevr?: The situation is rather complex. There are many questions to be asked & we need a picture or an exam in order to understand what's going on. 21 days is an awful long time to take antibiotics. I suspect you have dermatitis (irritation of skin) rather than cellulitis (infection of skin), as the non-response to antibiotics indicates. Use HealthTap Prime or TTYD about symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more
