Hives? Rash? It keeps spreading it starts as a red area then a welt appears and it itches and burns/stings on legs arms lower back and lower abdomen

Hive & rash: You have urticaria or allergic dermatitis, it is best if you see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment, at the mean time try an antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) hydrocortisone cream, but you need to find out what you are allergic to. Good luck

I have derm appt - but in mean time I have red bumpy ITCHY rash on part of lower right leg. It's now started on left. What could this be?!

I have derm appt - but in mean time I have red bumpy ITCHY rash on part of lower right leg. It's now started on left. What could this be?!

Could be minor...: Dermatology is all about appearance. I am guessing it is an erythematous papule ("red bumpy"), which honestly could be an insect bite, or contact dermatitis, both of which are common. However you mention pregnancy; there is a condition called PUPPP: Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy, which are terribly itchy red bumps! See what the dermatologist thinks!

Hi, I have a small red rash appeared three days before on my left thigh, after then, it started spreading to my right leg and thighs, what could it be?

Rash on Thigh: A rash on your thigh can have a variety of causes, and it may indicate something occurring around the thigh itself or suggest a systemic (body-wide) condition. Causes include: contact dermatitis, allergies, eczema, psoriasis, infections like yeast or bacteria, chaffing of the skin, medications, detergents, lotions and others.

Below scrotum and toward right leg I have a damp red rash that smells like fish. If scrubbed in shower produces slight pains. What is this?

Below scrotum and toward right leg I have a damp red rash that smells like fish. If scrubbed in shower produces slight pains. What is this?

Possible fungal: The damp red rash with a fishy smell may be from a longstanding fungal infection; however if sexually active, could be related to std. I would recommend over the counter antifingal cream (lotrimin (clotrimazole) af) - apply a thin layer am/pm for 5 days- if not resolved- see your pohysician and get checked for stds.

I have this red itchy bump with a black center & it is not a ingrown hair or a blackhead it's not a rash its on my inner thigh on my right leg?

I have this red itchy bump with a black center & it is not a ingrown hair or a blackhead it's not a rash its on my inner thigh on my right leg?

Possibilites: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health and Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. Bug bite, local trauma, multiple ones of them would mean something totally different, in theory, local infection possibly... probably other possiblities consider our video service.

Need exam: You can't diagnose the cause of a rash without actually examining the child. Could be insect bites, skin infection, contact dermatitis, hives or virus. I'd make an appointment with her pediatrician

Experiencing numb feeling in my lower right leg and foot, rashes on my neck and my bottom, and hair thinning. Always cold. What could this be?

Thyroid: Thinning hair and intolerance to cold are two signs of hypothyroidism. Numbness in the leg, and rashes, are not commonly associated with thyroid disorders so be sure to get checked out by a doc.

See a doctor: Skin lesions can come from any number of things and some of them can be indicitive of serious medical problems. The best course of action would be to be seen and evaluated by your doctor who may be able to tell the cause by simple inspeciton. Although further tests may be warrented

4: Weeks a bit concerning for your age, perhaps time to get MRI to exclude more serious causes. Heating pad could irritate skin, if not, again a sign of something more serious.

See a DR: Are your veins showing? Are your legs swollen with edema? Are you very heavy? Do you spend prolonged periods sitting or standing? You should be seen.

I have a rash on my lower right leg for over 1 year. I have seen two specialist and have used different type of topical steroid creams. Help?

Resistant Rash: Since topical cortisone has not helped your rash, you may need a skin biopsy to help with a diagnosis. Another possibility is that you may have a rash that cannot be treated with cortisone like a fungal infection.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved I would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor.
