Athletes foot: Hard to say for sure without a picture or more complete history but most common cause of an itchy rash in a young man is athletes foot which is a fungal infection of the skin. Try an over the counter spray and make sure to disinfect the shoes and bath and always keep the feet dry. If that fails follow up with his doctor or a podiatrist or dermatologist. ...Read more

Acute athletes foot: The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material (i know i'll take heat for this) like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist. ...Read more

Hormonal control.: Night time itching is commonly treated with anti fungal and steroid creams, and if it works, great. Too often though, there are no outward appearances of skin disruption, dryness or infestation. In those cases, the topical treatments are useless. It is thought that perhaps, the effect of what is known as the circadian rhythm, may be the underlying cause. You need to see a competent specialist. ...Read more

Should I use a different detergent if my baby keeps getting rashes on her leg?

Should I use a different detergent if my baby keeps getting rashes on her leg?

Usually won't matter: Recurrent rashes on the arms and legs of babies are often eczema, which appears as reddened, rough, dry skin areas. On severe eczema areas, the skin will get tiny cracks that ooze moisture. Changing the laundry detergent usually doesn't make a difference in the rash, but parents can try using no detergent for 2-3 weeks and see if the rash resolves (just wash the laundry with hot or warm water). ...Read more
