Maybe an allergy: Your doc can test for such allergies. If so, you can get a jeweler to coat the inside of your ring w/clear solution or you can use clear nail polish. Peace and good heath.

I keep having skin rashes appear. My skin becomes exceptionally itchy and once scratched the area becomes inflamed in red rings of different sizes.

I keep having skin rashes appear. My skin becomes exceptionally itchy and once scratched the area becomes inflamed in red rings of different sizes.

Sounds like hives: What you're describing sounds most like hives (urticaria) which is an allergic reaction to something typically in the air, not something directly contacting the skin. It's difficult to say with confidence though without photos or further description.

Why do I have a new skin growth that is itchy and hurts with a red ring around it? Could it be a cancer?

Why do I have a new skin growth that is itchy and hurts with a red ring around it? Could it be a cancer?

Not likely: What you described sounds like ring worm, a fungal infection. You can try over the counter treatment, however, if it is not better in about two weeks, you should consult your doctor.

Hello, I am 28 years old and have red ring itchy skin disease. I was given floconazole but it reoccurs as I stop medication?

Rash: There are certain organisms that are resistant to certain medications. It would be good to know what you had prescribed. I would consult back with the provider that saw you and then explore other medication to treat skin problem.

Skin underneath a ring was red, itchy. Last week or so it became blistering, painful, peeling. Getting worse. What could it be?

Skin underneath a ring was red, itchy. Last week or so it became blistering, painful, peeling. Getting worse. What could it be?

Dermatitis: Rashes under rings can be due to metal allergy (contact dermatitis), or an irritant effect from soaps trapped under the ring if not removed when doing dishes without gloves. Both causes can get secondarily infected, with germs, or yeast, giving much redness and tenderness. Remove the ring before dishwashing and get appropriate cream from a dermatologist.

Red inch wide circular mark groin/base of penis area. Not itchy or swollen or sore. Red ring with skin coloured inside area.

Red inch wide circular mark groin/base of penis area. Not itchy or swollen or sore. Red ring with skin coloured inside area.

Ringworm: What you described is consistent with ringworm infection. Try an over the counter medication for ringworm. If that does not help, it would be time to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Had a large blister on the bottom of my foot and popped it. It now has a red ring around it, the skin is really hard. It is itchy. Is it infected?

Had a large blister on the bottom of my foot and popped it. It now has a red ring around it, the skin is really hard. It is itchy. Is it infected?

Possible: It's possibly infected with fungus or yeast. It's probably not a bacterial infection from your description. Apply topical lortisome (antifungal cream with hydrocortisone) and bandaid for one week. If skin feels worse or appears like its spreading, see a doctor. Hope that helps.

Ring around my penis head was itchy for 2-3 days and then I masturbated for over an hour a day later, the next day it was raw, sore, red, and scabbed?

Ring around my penis head was itchy for 2-3 days and then I masturbated for over an hour a day later, the next day it was raw, sore, red, and scabbed?

Give it a rest: Your CONTINUED SELF ABUSE IS CAUSING THUS PROBLEM. Put some Vaseline on the irritated parts and let it rest a few days until, this heals. Should the raw sore areas have drainage or appear infected, see your local, doc to get an antibiotic salve

I am experiencing skin rash (quality: itchiness, blisters, crusty, bumpy, red or bluish purple, ring shaped, flaking or scaling) wearing vinyl gloves?

I am experiencing skin rash (quality: itchiness, blisters, crusty, bumpy, red or bluish purple, ring shaped, flaking or scaling) wearing vinyl gloves?

Should be examined: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. Generalized spots that itch may be part of an allergic reaction, an irritant or chemical reaction, an infection, or a disorder inside the body. "Generalized" means the rash is all over the body. Bluish or purplish spots may be blood spots. Sometimes, spots have unknown causes. Rashes at work may be due to chemicals in gloves, solvents, detergents, etc...

I work in a hospital, lots of hand sani. Two rings on one finger & now have red, raised skin, flaking, & itchy. No rings for a week now. Remedy??

I work in a hospital, lots of hand sani. Two rings on one finger & now have red, raised skin, flaking, & itchy. No rings for a week now. Remedy??

Contact dermatitis: I think the problem is contact dermatitis. Something from the hand sanitizer reacted with the metal on your rings to create an irritative substance. Without seeing pictures, it will be hard to tell. Consider TTYD or using HealthTap Prime. In the mean time, avoid rings, use soap (not alcohol) cleaners, & use moisturizing cream - Lubriderm or similar. Also, wear gloves to protect your skin! Thanks.

Never allergic to jewelry, developing rash under wedding band set (rough, red, itchy), white gold, no rash anywhere else when wearing gold?

Wedding ring rash: Wedding ring rash is a fairly common condition. It can occur at any time, sometimes even years, after beginning to wear a ring. It can be due to an allergy to the nickel component in the metal, or to irritation resulting from extended periods of moisture, or contact with soaps or other chemicals.

My skin has a redness to it, and when rubbed there is an itchy sensation?

Dry? Rash? History?: Your skin may be dry, especially if you've been out in the sun a lot, or there may be something more going on. Is there a rash, or just vague/generalized redness? Any other symptoms? Exposure to any foods, plants, chemicals? Any medications or medical conditions? Try moisturizer lotion 2-4x/day for a few days, and if not getting better, get checked by a dr.

What could possibly causing itchy/tingling/crawling skin sensation all over the body? No rash, redness, or dryness.

Different causes: Generalized skin sensations like those may be seen with anxiety, diabetes, thyroid disease, deficiency of calcium, magnesium, electrolytes, vit b 12, toxic agents, prickly heat, intolerance of certain clothing material, etc. If symptoms persist, a neurologist is best qualified to evaluate, advise and order any appropriate tests.

Why do sunburns itch so badly? Is the skin trying to heal? I had mine for 2 wks wout much decrease in redness & itchiness should I c a doc, b worried

Yes: Sounds like something other than sunburn. Have you applied something to a sunburn? Something that might cause itch? Reason for Tegratol? Best see a dermatologist. Meanwhile, try a nice, long shower using Dove or Aveeno (oatmeal) cleanser, followed by vigorous rub-down using a ceremide cream such as Eucerin or Aveeno (oatmeal).
