Itchy skin all over body, worse at night, rash isn't that noticeable but itches like crazy & sometimes burns. What could it be?

Itchy skin all over body, worse at night, rash isn't that noticeable but itches like crazy & sometimes burns. What could it be?

Many possibilities: When the body itches all over, it implies that the itching/rash may be a reaction from an ingestion such as a medication or food, or an allergy to the environment, ie hayfever. Another possibility could be a skin infestation such as scabies. Reactions to things like fabrics or laundry detergent will usually spare certain parts of the body such as the head/scalp, hands and feet. ...Read more

I have itchy skin every where no dry skin and when it itches it starts to burn and get red but no bumps or rash what is this ?

I have itchy skin every where  no dry skin and when it itches it starts to burn and get red but no bumps or rash what is this ?

Well: It gets red and itches then goes away, no rash or bumps. It could be a rash or what is called idiopathic urticaria, release of inflammation due to stress. Oddlly enough sometimes an h-2 bkocker like tagamet for the the stomach can help. It may be allergic reaction or something else and i would not avoid seeing a doctor. I would trey Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and tagamet is pretty cheap. Look up idiop. ...Read more

My son has a rash and iam woundering what it is? The rash is inside of the skin, there is no bumps or welts, it itches and burns. There is no fever or nausea, no votming

There : There are many conditions that can cause a rash that appears to be inside or "under" the skin. If it is itching or burning, you would need to be concerned about some type of contact he had, such as an allergan. It could also be several different skin conditions, such as eczema, or could be the result of an infection. I am glad he has no fever or vomiting. If he developed those symptoms he would have to be seen immediately. As it is itching and burning though, i would urge you to take him to his doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Rash lining and inside lips; started with itching, turned to burning later on.. I have started using the vasoline and it is working wonderful, but I wanted to find out if this is most likely a skin contact rash or something ingested?

Rash lining and inside lips; started with itching, turned to burning later on.. I have started using the vasoline and it is working wonderful,  but I wanted to find out if this is most likely a skin contact rash or something ingested?

Could be either one: What you describe could come from contact with a substance, like lip product, that you came in contact with. You may be allergic to one of the components. It is also possible that you had an allergic reaction to something you ate. Try to look back over the time just before you got the rash and figure out what it might have been. It does not sound like herpes if burning went away quickly. ...Read more

I have been experiencing itching without a rash followed by a burning sensation, crawling feeling underneath skin and small red bumps. Help please!

Red bumps: If the red bumps clear within a day, they may be hives caused by an allergic reaction to something internal(example=food) or external by something coming in contact with your body. If the bumps persist for a few days,insect bites could be the culprit. Taking antihistamine like benadryl(causes drowsiness) or claritin(nondrowsy) helps. See a dermatologist or allergist as needed. ...Read more
