Have child seen!: All of these symptoms are very concerning for a serious problem. Fevers, rash, joint pain and swelling sound like a systemic inflammatory condition such as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. However other things such as certain infections, allergies or exposures can cause these problems. Please be sure this child sees a physician right now to explore the history, exam and do right diagnostic studies. ...Read more

My 2 year old and I have mystery rash (me hands, her arm/leg) now trying prescribed zovirax (acyclovir) to see if helps. Will this help on non coldsore rashes?

My 2 year old and I have mystery rash (me hands, her arm/leg) now trying prescribed zovirax (acyclovir) to see if helps. Will this help on non coldsore rashes?

No, antiviral only: It is unusual to get cold sores lesions on arms and legs, and zovirax (acyclovir) is specific for antiviral. To confirm the cause, a rash needs to be examined, but based on location and occurring at the same time, it is more likely to be a contact allergic dermatitis. This responds better to oral or topical steroids, such as hydrocortisone cream. ...Read more

Began suffering from hives, and can a new watchband cause this, even though the rashes are not on the watch arm, but the legs and trunk?

Began suffering from hives, and can a new watchband cause this, even though the rashes are not on the watch arm, but the legs and trunk?

Watchband reactions: Reactions to watchbands tend to be related to the presence of nickel in the band. Nickel is a metal that some people have a reaction to (irritant contact dermatitis) when there is prolonged contact. The reaction takes place at the site of contact, and is usually a red rash sometimes with cracked skin, rather than hives. ...Read more

What to do for bruise like rashes on legs, butt, and arms that d not itch or hurt?

Ice and compression: Ice and compression to the area with a wrap. Bruising is below the skin bleeding, so elevating the area will help relieve pressure. Also, massaging the area gently while taking over the counter anti inflammatory meds. I hope this helps. If so, please vote for me. Thanks! ...Read more

Been breaking out in small random rashes for last 3 months. On arms and legs. Lasts no longer than 10 minutes and goes away. Justrred and itchy?

Sounds like hives: Which can be triggered by allergies, & stress. Sometimes an antihistamine like benadryl, (diphenhydramine) claritin, allegra, or zyrtec can help, as well as avoiding any triggers. Sometimes it can be associated w celiac disease and/or wheat allergy. Nickel can be another trigger. If it worsens please see your doctor. ...Read more

What should we do for slight discoloration on my daughter's arm and legs? Legs also have some rashes that cause itchiness and flare up after swimming.

What should we do for slight discoloration on my daughter's arm and legs? Legs also have some rashes that cause itchiness and flare up after swimming.

Eczema: You need to use a moisturizer on her skin twice to three times a day. Moisturizer means either lotion, cream or ointment. Choose one without fragrance or added color. Itching will respond to Hydrocortisone 1% cream 2-3 times a day on those itchy areas. Too frequent bathing or swimming will make the dry skin worse. ...Read more

Last night I ate 2 pcs of chicken and develop some rashes in my arms and legs, can I consider it as one of d foods tat im allergic with?

Not yet: Symptoms such as rash after exposure to something like food may be due to an allergy, but there are multiple things, both allergic and non allergic, that can cause a rash. Food allergy is just one and can be serious if that is the cause. I recommend seeing a board certified allergist for an evaluation and testing. ...Read more
