What Bug Bites Could Leave Your Skin Itching And Throbbing For Days
Insect bites are from mosquitos, spiders, flies, ticks, and other species that use their mandibles (jaws) to attach to a person or other animal. They can then suck blood out of their "prey" and leave saliva proteins that cause itching and swelling. Other insect species, like bees, yellow jackets, wasps, hornets and fire ants actually inject venom into their prey and can not only cause localized pain and swelling, but severe, acute allergic reactions in ...Read more
Please help me I have had itchy skin for 20 years and it is so bad now I am going crazy. When this all started i was diognosed with lupous and then a coulple years later liver and then that didn't pan out they just gave me cream. The itching is accross
I : I am so sorry to hear about your struggle with your skin. Since this has been going on for twenty years, if i recommend something that has been done or tried please forgive me. You need a complete allergy panel specifically for the area you live in. You should request skin and blood allergy testing. Have you tried Atarax (hydroxyzine) pills for itching? How about steroid injections every three months. Acupuncture? Acupressure? A daily anti-histamine wont hurt. Also consider cutting out gluten and monitor for any improvement. I hope you find relief soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 patches of dry itchy skin that go from my elbow and close my hand it only itches once in a while i've never had this before?
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
