Itchy skin all over body, worse at night, rash isn't that noticeable but itches like crazy & sometimes burns. What could it be?

Itchy skin all over body, worse at night, rash isn't that noticeable but itches like crazy & sometimes burns. What could it be?

Many possibilities: When the body itches all over, it implies that the itching/rash may be a reaction from an ingestion such as a medication or food, or an allergy to the environment, ie hayfever. Another possibility could be a skin infestation such as scabies. Reactions to things like fabrics or laundry detergent will usually spare certain parts of the body such as the head/scalp, hands and feet.

Many possibilities: There are many types of rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Heat rash: Here are a few suggestions assuming the rash is a heat rash. 1. run a fan by the bed. 2. shower or bath before and after sleeping to minimize the rash. 3. run you air conditioner at a lower temp. 4. if in a house move sleeping to the basement where it is cooler. 5 consider sleeping in the nude if appropriate for child's age. There is no med to prevent heat rash.

Clean, don't scratch: Clean the bedding well. Gently clean your body well too and wipe w/ diluted vinegar or witch hazel, etc. Use a hypoallergic lotion too. Take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as directed. If you still suffer, see a Dr. You might need a lb test and/or a Rx anti-inflammatory. Try hard to not scratch! Avoid infection.

Why do I have rashes whenever any part of my body itches?

Why do I have rashes whenever any part of my body itches?

Histamine: Your body makes histamine and this causes the rash after you are itching. It is released as a signal to the body. You see red. The body is increasing blood flow to mount a response to help. It usually quickly fades.

See your doctor: It is important to go see the doctor while you have the rash. Rashes are one of those things that the doctor has to see while it is there to determine the cause and the best treatment. If it has different stages to it and you can't get in more than once, you can take digitial pictures of the rash in its various stages to help the doctor.

I am having rashes in my inner thighs. ..it itches some swelling circles...these area has become black. Kindly help.

Thigh irritation: I suspect skin irritation of your thighs may be related to such things as continual friction and/or sweating and? Yeast infection Perhaps wearing tight jeans plays a role, also. Avoid tight clothing, keep the thighs clean and dry once the rash clears. In the meantime try applying an antiyeast anti-inflammatory ointment like mycolog. If no improvement, consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatm

I have a sever itch the groin area there's no signs or rashes there nothing but it itches like crazy what could this be?

Several things: Groin rashes/itches could be fungal, and you just do not see a rash yet. Could be a bug-like "crabs/mites" that you do not see or scabies. These are all guesses so do not get scared, just see your dr for an evaluation and the real answer. Good luck.

Fungal?: Have the rashes persisted for days? It is always very difficult to comment on potential causes of rash without an exam. Fungal rash (tinea corporis or versicolor), intertrigo (irritation from chafing maybe complicated by infection) or erythrasma (bacterial infection) are associated with round itchy/scaly persistent rash in this region.

Skin itches and rashes form in some locations. Only happens in the summer, this is the 2nd year. Rash occurs on exposed and non-exposed skin.

Fungal likely: Usually occur in groin, armpits, under breasts, but occur anywhere where u sweat more. Fungus are notorious for reappearing during summer time as they like moist conditions. Key is to keep the areas as dry as possible. Antifungal and steroid creams are the usual treatment. A dermatologist can help

Foot itches internally, no rashes, is this a nerve pinch?

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.
