Swelling: At this stage of pregnancy the uterus impedes venous return which leads to swelling in your legs.After a while this can result in a flat skin rash that doesn't itch and pitting edema.When u press on the leg it causes a pit or dent.Keep ur feet up as much as possible, wear maternity support hose, and it will improve after you have the baby.Do discuss this with your doctor.It can b a sign of toxemia ...Read more

Spreading rash...: Any type of rash that spreads from one part of the body to another needs to be examined.

Allergist: I recommend that you be evaluated and treated by an allergist. You appear to be experiencing some sort of allergic response to something internal or external. I find these cases to be very elusive in finding the triggers and I feel that an allergist is best qualified to deal with them. In the meantime try an antihistamine like benadryl(causes drowsiness) or claritin(nondrowsy). ...Read more

Dr,  I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab.. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?

Probably not: but you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more

Hi...I was taking Augmentin for 2 days and developed a rash on my leg and on the head of my penis, the redness on my leg is going away but on my peni?

Hi...I was taking 
Augmentin for 2 days and developed a rash on my leg and on the head of my penis, the redness on my leg is going away but on my peni?

Reasonable to ...: To suspect skin reaction (allergy) after taking a drug like Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is reasonable but not confirmative. Being not anaphylactic in nature, future repetitive experience may tell. At present, just leave it alone if bearable or just apply steroid-containing skin cream lightly 1-2 times daily and watch for 3-5 days; if not resolving as wished or worsening, seek evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more

Can eczema turn into psoriasis? I have a patch of itchy skin on my shin diagnosed as eczema. My GP prescribed Verdeso 0.05% rash came back red & bumpy

Can eczema turn into psoriasis? I have a patch of itchy skin on my shin diagnosed as eczema. My GP prescribed Verdeso 0.05% rash came back red & bumpy

No: In fact atopic eczema and psoriasis are nearly 180 degree opposite to each other in term of the immune reactions. Cortisone is a non-specific anti-inflammatory agent which however may help both conditions although better and safer alternatives may be required. The itchy rash on your chin is likely from a contact allergy with hair preparations being the most likely suspects. ...Read more

I've got a red blotchie rash looking sytom under the skin on my arms and legs and sore shins is it anything i shud be worried about had it 3 days now

Hives?: Good morning, red blotchy rash on arms and legs could be due to many causes. If it is due to an allergic or immune reaction, it may be hives. If the rashes are on the exposed areas of the arms and legs only, it is more likely due to insect bites, such as mosquitos and flees. Contact allergy is another consideration. If the rash persists, please visit your doctor. ...Read more
