Have been treating entire body for fungal infection with coconut oil rash gone skin dry and flaky now still itches really bad possible I'd reaction? Symmetrical rash started on torso spread to arms and legs has reached ankles still extremely itchy on breas

Sounds fungal: Would need more background information as there are several potential causes for rash such as this. However, ruling out fungal infection is at top of list.

Would see a physician to confirm and take antifungal medication. ...Read more

Since he was a baby my 5yr old breaks out in a bad itchy rash on his torso at night during summer months. Possible causes? Treatment?

Avoid nylon or polyester sleepwear, cotton is best. Apply cornstarch baby powder at bedtime to prevent the rash from occurring. Also use lightweight, cotton bedding only. It is safe to use Hydrocortisone cream 1-2 x/day on the rash to ease the itching. ...Read more

My skin has been itchy for over a week with no rash especially the torso and lower legs.

Again if no one provement within a week, see your doctor. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more

I have an itchy rash all over my torso neck back and now has spread to my legs?

Need a picture: Rashes are tough to diagnose with just limited description. Often even with pictures and biopsies rashes can go undiagnosed. It is important to see the rash and get a thorough history including new contacts, foods and medications taken as well as pattern of spread to get an accurate diagnosis.

Would taking an antihistamine, like Benadryl for a 4 day worsening rash (suspecting Roseola due to occupation), alleviate the non-itchy rash on torso?

Would taking an antihistamine, like Benadryl for a 4 day worsening rash (suspecting Roseola due to occupation), alleviate the non-itchy rash on torso?

Unlikely: Antihistamines like benadryl can benefit you when the rash is triggered by an allergic reaction.It is not likely to ever effect a rash derived from an infectious process or many other causes. Infection related rashes like roseola are triggered by reaction to actual deposition of antibody/virus complexes under the skin surface that will fade over time ...Read more

Torso, arms, legs and back are covered in strange "rash" that looks like hickies. Not itchy, dry or raised. Has been spreading/multiplying for months?

Get it evaluated: I recommend getting this rash evaluated by a dermatologist. It could be a variety of skin eruptions including a long-standing reaction to a medicine, an inflammatory disorder (such as an autoimmune disorder, a lichenoid dermatitis, among many others), or a cutaneous malignant disorder (like a cutaneous lymphoma). Depending on what it looks like, you may need a biopsy to further characterize it. ...Read more
