14weeks pregnant. No infections or diseases. Itchy burning skin all over body. Gets even worse at night. What can be causing this?

Skin changes: I am not sure what is causing this. The hormones of pregnancy can cause skin changes that can make your skin oily or dry, which can cause sensitive skin and be uncomfortable. There are some other things that could cause itching later in pregnancy, but at this gestational age, I suspect it is just the skin adjusting to the new hormones in your body. ...Read more

Dry skin?: At 14 weeks, there really are no skin related complications related specifically to the pregnancy. This sounds like something else.

I have a itchy burning skin rash on my body is it due to they thyroid, I have taken thyroxin for years?

Maybe (not). . .: It might also be due to your oral antihistamine or seroxat (paroxetine). Lots of other possible reasons. New soaps/lotions/detergents? New clothing? Recent travel or camping? Bottom line: go see your doctor & tell him/her about your concerns. Also be sure to give timeline as to when rash started relative to any of above, eg new bottle of medications, perhaps due to switch in generic manufacturers. ...Read more

I'm 4 months pregnant and I have peeling burning skin around the creases of my nose, and dry itchy flakey skin. Is this normal? And why?

Yes: It's normal to experience these types of dry skin changes in pregnancy. Drink lots of lots of water, that may help. You may want to try a moisturizer on your face if you haven't already.

Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Typical symptoms!: Contrary to what you seem to think (or what you have been told), increased discharge is not one of the main symptoms of yeast. Your own symptoms are exactly what I teach medical students to look for and patients to be aware of. See a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Or you can try an over the counter yeast medication -- then see the doc if symptoms don't clear up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

8 year old is in tears over burning legs. (they are not hot to touch) seasonal allergies are bad. Burning swollen itchy eyes. Why are legs burning?

Uncertain: Seasonal allergy is not related to burning legs which may be a neurologic issue. If your child has eczema, it may be from the excessive dry skin which may be relieved by application of a moisturizer 2x daily preferably with at least one within 3 minutes after bathing. You may also try a 4% lidocaine lotion to see if this helps. If problem persists, see a doctor. ...Read more

Allergic Conjunctivi: You most likely have an allergic conjunctivitis that causes the itching. Rubbing the eye may feel good for the second, but it will make the aftermath a lot worse.
