Thyroid And Itchy Shins
Rash gets itchy at night, its maculopapular in some areas about 3cm x 2cm in most areas. Its mostly at chest, neck, abdomen, shins. Better in day?
Red itchy spots on shins, elbows, behind knees & neck. No one else in home is afflicted. What is it and how do I get rid of it?
Jock itch: See your physician to get checked for accurate diagnosis. My guess is tinea corporis which is a fungal infection of the skin. It causes an itchy, red, often ring-shaped rash in these warm, moist areas of your body. It is common in people who sweat a lot, as do athletes. It usually respond to topical anti fungals creams.
Many swollen neck lymphs. Itchy eyes. Hard lumps started on collarbone (was painful now isn't), more painless ones formed in 3 months, rib cage, shin, back of neck few on chest. Good blood work, blood counts, crp, clean chest x-ray. No other symptoms
Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist.See 1 more doctor answer
Chest, groin, testicular pain, bowel issues, pain radiating down left leg, headaches, pain head & neck, achy all over. Skin itchy & tingling
Multi-symptoms: You need to see a doctor, if you haven't yet.
Best to see doctor: Hard to say without more information to help pin down the cause, and even then, rashes can be tough to diagnose without seeing them! I think i'd recommend a visit to your doctor. In the meantime, for the itching cool compresses, or lotions containing calamine or pramoxine would be good over-the-counter anti-itch treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
Many possible causes: There are many things that could cause the skin to itch. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
It can be.: Thyroid acropachy may complicate graves' disease and subcutaneous infiltration is seen in myxedema. So, the answer to your question is that itchy shins can be associated with thyroidopathies. See your internist or family physician to obtain endocrinology referral.See 1 more doctor answer
Underlying cause: You need to find out the underlying cause; are there insect bites? Some metabolic problem? Scratching usually only worsens the itch, and scratching until you bleed leaves you vulnerable to infection. Discuss with your doctor about possible causes and maybe a medication to help with the itch itself.
See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.
Need to see dermatol: You need to see dermatology and get a correct diagnosis. There are a variety of possible diagnoses

Shin rash: A rash on both lower legs usually means something has gotten on you or something you work around that could have gotten on your pants legs and onto your skin. Think about what you are around. Or have used on your skin. Steroid cream is the answer.
Itchy area: Ask your Dr. To check out the area as there may be a simple cream you can take to cure the itchiness. Best wishes.
No: If there is no rash, I think you should hydrate your skin twice a day and see if it goes away. That often cure an itch.
I have 4 bites on my shin. Itchy. Not too painful. But on my calf, there is about a 2x2 inch red splotch. It's smooth. What did this? Dangerous?
Varies: There are a number of possibilities. In someone who has other bites visible, it could be another bite or a bite that has gotten infected. It would really take an exam to say. I would encourage you to be seen and evaluated.
I keep getting rashes all over my body very itchy now it is on my head coming up in lumps seems to get worse in winter and on my shins I will scratch?
See a doctor: Eruptions of this nature may be infective, allergic, non-infectious inflammatory and even rarely due to underlying malignancies. Working out the cause for these may take a prolonged investigation by an experienced clinician. See your pcp and if they cannot handle this they may refer you to a dermatologist or allergist.
