I have a raised red rash which started off on my thighs and has spread up my back and stomach and down legs and arms itchy, some yellow scabbing?
Impetigo? Get seen!: It sounds like you could have a rash that became infected. You may need oral and topical antibiotics as well as a surgical scrub like hibiclens or some hydrogen peroxide to clean the area. Dry itchy skin becomes cracked, rashy and infected skin. I think you should head to a physician for evaluation especially because of the yellow crusting. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help with itch. ...Read more

My bf has raised veins on his entire left leg and left foot numbness, he is 30years old and has smoked for 20+ years. What could it be?

Mom had a (painful) lump on her leg & now a lump on her arm. Urgent care says varicose veins (in 2 sites?) should she get 2nd opinion? Possibilities?
Varicose veins: This should be very easy to sort out with a physical exam & a vein ultrasound. If the MD at the urgent care suspects abnormal veins, then see a vascular surgeon for opinion (they are experts in varicose veins). The arm lump would be unlikely to be an abnormal vein (varicose veins don't form on the arm), but a quick exam & ultrasound should sort that out as well Good luck! ...Read more
