Rash on hips: Eczema is commonly seen on hips particularly in cold weather. Eczema is red/pink and scaly and can be very itchy. If eczema is mild, moisturizers like petroleum jelly or a fragrance-free dye-free cream 2-3 times a day may help.

Hi, I have a rash that apearred on both side of my hips, around my underwear elastic line, I've had it for about a year, round, red and itchy?

Unwanted rashes: You very well may be reacting to the laundry soap concentrated in the underwear elastic band. It may be nice to rewash all clothes like this in just water without laundry detergent an then letting your skin recover.
If you are reacting to the elastic you may need a different type of underwear.

A good skin doctor can help you sort all of this out. ...Read more

Numbness on left side below waistline on hip for 4 days. No redness, pain or rash. Occasional itch.?

Maybe: Lupus is a complex autoimmune disease in which the body is attacking its own tissue. Lupus is famous for affecting different people in different ways. The effects can be so different from person to person that it does not even look like they have the same diagnosis. ANA is only a screening test that tells us more tests are needed.

I have some rashes on my hips and those are very itchy. I feel pain n burning sometimes. I can't even sit or sleep properly. Kindly help me out asap.

Hip rash, pain: Painful rash is seen in shingles, but it usually occurs on only one side of the body at a time. Noticeable itching with rash is more suggestive of an allergic reaction to something that comes in contact with your hips. A dermatologist is best qualified to evaluate, advise and treat you. In the meantime, try applying a cortisone type ointment and take benadryl (causes drowsiness) claritin (nondrowsy ...Read more
