Hyperhidrosis: With an allergic response. Quite common. Switch to baby soap. Use OTC antihistamine like Zyrtec (cetirizine) and 1% hydrocortisone cream. (a pea sized drop- 3x/day). If worsening- you may need Rx medication.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

PUPPP: Pruritic and urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy - now you know why it's called the puppp rash. It's a skin change in pregnancy without an obvious cause, but felt to be related to pregnancy hormones. Topical, or sometime oral, steroids are used to alleviate symptoms.

Dyshidrotic eczema: Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Claritin for itching and vaseline ointment with cotton gloves over the hands and socks on the feet overnight. May need to see your dr, if this doesn't help. Here's a link with information about it: http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000832.htm

I'm around 11 weeks pregnant and have itchy hands, what does this mean anything to worry about?

I'm around 11 weeks pregnant and have itchy hands, what does this mean anything to worry about?

Likely nothing: Itchy hands later in pregnancy can be a sign of cholestasis. I've never heard if it this early in pregnancy however. Speak with your doctor about it. In the meantime, consider some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to see if that alleviates it. 25 mg is a good dose to start.

Usually a combo: Steroid + hand moisturizer (e. g Eucerin) is best for this condition. Some people prefer ointment (thick oily type) that would keep the moisture in better than the typical lotion or cream. Also if you use hand sanitizers (such as Purell) too much, as some OCD people do, then you are destroying your skin with it. Refrain from cleaning or washing your hands with any harsh scented chemicals.

See your doctor: Can just be acute urticaria or a reaction to something you were exposed to as a drug or food, meanwhile you can try diphenhydramine or cetirizine OTC, but read the labels carefully, both are safe with pregnancy, don't drive if you feel drowsy, good luck

Need Dermtologist: A widespread rash such as what you have described especially with blistering demands immediate attention preferably by a dermatologist. Without fever in an otherwise healthy individual conditions such as allergic reactions or immune mediated blistering diseases need to be considered and worked up by a dermatologist.

I have some small red itchy bumps on the back of my hand. They come and go every week or so. What is this?

Hand eczema: The most common causes are irritant (too much hand washing) or contact allergy. Pay attention to the type of soap and hand preparation to see it changing the brand would help (no scented, anti-bacterial soap) or gel). If you wash you hands too often, consider wearing a non-latex glove on some of the chores and apply a lotion after washing whenever possible as well as reducing hand washing

Skin issues: There could be a number of reasons this is happening, from an allergic reaction to something that you were exposed to, to bites from insects etc. If there are other people at home who have similar issues, it could be some insect bite. Have your physician take a look at the actual bumps as it helps us figure out what they are. Hope this helps

My bf has small white itchy bumps all over hands it's never happened before what could this be? Clear fluid comes out if he pops them.

Hand dermatitis: This could be a contact allergy/dermatitis or possibly dyshidrotic eczema. Without having history or direct examination, rashes are difficult to accurately diagnose.
