I have red extremely itchy bumps in various sizes all over my legs and stomach. They are so itchy that I scratch until they bleed. I have had this problem for over 2 years. I have seen a number of doctors,tried a number of creams, antibartics, sprays and I still have them. Each doctor tells me something else. They have recently started appearing on my hands and fingers. The ones on my fingers cause my fingers to swell so much that I can`t bend then as the skin is so tight and sore that it causes pain when I try to bend them. If I force my fingers to bend then it feels as if the flesh inside my fingers are tearing and I get marks that look like the tiny blood vessels in my finger joints have burst. Nothing has helped to stop the itching and cure what ever is causing these itchy bites/ bumps. please can you help me as I am at my wits end. I am not even sleeping properly as I am so itchy that I can`t stop scratching

I am not a doctor but this may be a violent allergic reaction to something in your food or environment (Wool , Pesticide, Air freshener , Deodorant, Cleaning chemical )
I think you should go down a direction of getting allergy tested to see if you have an allergic reaction .to something

    on a more serious train of though have you had your liver function tested via blood tests as if your liver is having problems it will cause itchy skin as a symptom. However I would have thought the doctors would have given you a series of full blood test .http://www.medicinenet.com/itch/symptoms...

SOURCE: I have a small patch of red skin on my face. My

Many of the smaller spots and skin lesions of the face are easily removed with lasers. These include small blood vessels on the face, small brown spots or age spots, and freckles and freckle-like spots on the face and elsewhere. To make the blood vessels less noticeable, concealer is your best choice. There are several brands out there, but the one I recommend is Colosé Cream Powder Concealer. It is great for minor skin imperfections and dark circles under the eyes.

SOURCE: I am 17 and have had bad eczema particularly on my

My son has had moderate eczema all of his(4years) life. We are able to control it but it is an on-going battle. This sounds crazy but it has worked for the past year:I add probiotics to his food 1x/day. It comes in powder form, I buy it from the health food store. Bathing 1x/day is important. You would think you would bathe less but I was told to bathe him at night, add a cap full of BLEACH to a full tub of water. The thinking is that the bleach will kill the bacteria that is living on the skin. Just a few tablespoons- you shouldn't be able to smell it. Soak in it and immediately after the bath- MOISTURIZE! Only use the steroid cream on the "hot spots" use regular cream (cetaphil makes a new one called restoril that is excellent- you can buy it at walmart/cvs) everywhere else. Wear soft, 100% cotton clothing to bed. Do this every day for 12 days. After 12 days cut the bleach baths to 2x/week. Use the steroid cream only on the bad spots! Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Try to eat a healthy diet. Have you been to the allergist? You may have some allergies you don't know about, like milk or soy. Good luck. I'm sorry you are going through this. It looks painful and as a parent I have tried everything to give my guy relief. This is what is working for us. We had been to 5 dermatologist in 3 years!

Prevent and treat bug bites


There's a reason that insects are called pests.But despite the itchy ,red bumps they leave behind,insects bites are usually mild and the itching goes away in a day or so,specially the bug bites come from mosquitoes or biting flies.On the other hand(legs,arm or toe.....),bees,wasps and fire ants tend to cause more irritation and can some time lead to bigger problems.
Bug bites can be avoided,or at least minimized,by following a few precautions for common out door pests.The first line to defense against to plan ahead-always evaluate your surroundings and prepare accordingly if you anticipate large numbers of insects.Its always a good idea to apply insect repellent with DEET or PICARIDIN.If you r concern about using chemicals, particularly around children,you might want to try lemon eucalyptus and citronella oils, which also work.

I have red rash on my lower legs just above ankle it itchy and feels lumpy I had tried my things nothing seem to help I bandage my legs at night to stop me stracthing.


Hello Joy Langdon,

Could be poison oak...then again an early ALERT...

The possibilities are endless and your background information... health conditions, allergies... FAMILY HISTORY ... recent trips (everything) should be weighed by a professional.

We want to believe "not me"... but I'll assure you
you would RATHER be considered a HYPOCONDRIAC than to lose precious time to any serious medical condition... I'm not saying you have one... I'm just telling you to value your health.

A rheumatologist or immunologist...
I think GPs are great... but they'll often try to treat the symptoms rather than the SYSTEM... with a "lets wait & see" approach.

It's your health... and we live in a PRETTY TOXIC environment...!!

So don't BANDAGE or WRAP anything until you get a satisfactory answer... you can make things worse ...

Air/oxygen is a healing agent as good (often better) than any aloe, balm, bandage or ointment.

Anyone with a STITCH of medical training would be totally irresponsible to suggest even a glass of water or an aspirin
without knowing what issues you might suffer...

Wear mittens... (don't scratch) skin is really valuable!!

Hi.my son is 9 and get this big red ball marks back of his leg.he says its not itchy,but it is sometimes sore.just want to know what will be the cause?


not itchy is good
if not a medicine or food allergy reaction

trace the steps where he has been today

chemical ..dust .something outside the house.. or a bite

My wife is pregnant and she suffers abdominal pain.what are the common problem/stomach pain during pregnancy period.


This is an extremely common side effect of pregnancy. During pregnancy you have a few reasons for this:
1) Increase in progesterone, decreases the contractility of smooth muscle. Smooth muscle is what makes up the bulk of your Gastrointestinal Tract. This decreased contractility will lead to nausea, constipation and sometimes cramping.
2) Increase in abdominal size will lead to pressure on the GI tract especially the stomache causing heart burn and slowed emptying of the stomache.

Good Luck! I hope this helped!
