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

I have an itchy scalp and a large red itchy patch on my forehead. I also have swollen lymph nodes around my ear. I got my hair done last Wednesday.

Dermatitis: If ALL the symptoms are on SAME side of your head and don't cross the midline then I'm worried about shingles which can later become painful. Starting treatment right away is critical A chemical allergic reaction is also possible especially if your hair was dyed and should have it looked at. ...Read more

I have an itchy rash in one area of my pubic hair?

I have an itchy rash in one area of my pubic hair?

Many differing dx: If you shave or use hair removers, these could certainly lead to an itchy, inflammatory process in the pubic area. Contact dermatitis, or a sensitivity or allergy, could also do this. Yeast infections from sweating are yet another possibility. Then there are infectious, contagious processes like pubic lice and scabies that could be culprits. ...Read more

Prickly itchy rash shows raised bumps, when scratch swell into raised strips. Lasts few mins. Affects diff area of body/hair & diff time. No reason.

Dermatographism: If your rash is a flat one and scratching it causing raised strip, you have dermatographism meaning that your skin is oversensitive. If it is bothersome, taking an otc antihistamine such as zyrtec (cetirizine) will likely control it. Else it is not a major health issue. As always, mention this to your doctor when you see him/her next time. ...Read more

Skin: Hypothyroidis even uncorrected would unlikely to cause the skin lesions you described. I think at this time you need to have a work up to rule out other autoimmune diseases. Also, seeing a dermatologist would be helpful. ...Read more

I've had for several weeks an increasingly itchy rash on the back of my scalp. Anything to relieve this?

Yes: There may be many causes and unfortunately we often cannot find the answer even after exhaustive studies. If it lasts over 6 weeks, see an allergist. If it is short term, try some otc antihistamine up to 4 x the regular frequency but watch out for drowsiness. Otherwise topical Hydrocortisone cream should be tried. If it still did not work, see an allergist. ...Read more

I have had a tingling itchy rash on and off for a year.  Lots of tests later, they think it is perimenapausal hormones.  Any thoughts?

It is possible!: Good morning, hormonal changes can be related to many nerve-related symptoms, as many agents that are involved in itching are mediators related to releasing of chemical compounds from nerve endings. Dryness can precipitate an itch. Itch leads to scratch and release of mediators such as histamine. Moisturizing creams (not lotions) may help reduce symptoms. ...Read more
