    Itchy skin rash appearing all over my body... picture attached.
    Hi, I have been having itchy patches of raised bumps on my inner thighs, buttocks, feet, legs, elbows, and under my arms. They are so itchy that I can't help but to scratch until I bleed. I have no clue what I have, I have been trying to do some research online but I can't come to a conclusion. Attached are 2 pictures of my left foot and left inner thigh... please help!



    I have ruled out bed bugs as I have had them before... I have no clue what it is!

    I agree, this looks like a heat rash or something has irritated it. Have you changed your washing powder or soap recently? Antihistamines should relieve the itch and stop the rash.

    Looks like excema (sp?) I have that behind my knees and it looks the same when it flares up and I scratch like crazy. Go to the doctor and he/she will give you cortizone cream... it really hopes with the itching! I hope this helps! I feel you pain (I mean itch) if it is excema... mine just showed up out of no where and 6 years later I still have it, but the cream does wonders.

    Three different diagnosis. This is why it's always best to go to your doctor, he/she can run tests and make sure you get an accurate diagnosis and medication, not a guess.

    See your doctor.

    Hello,
    I have severe eczema and used to have skin like that everywhere. It has calmed using prescribed creams from the doctor although it may be another cause, have you used any different treatments or soaps lately? Any perfume? Body lotion? Please reply, I will search the internet for you.

    Hello chef_chick. It's very nice that you're offering to search the internet for the OP, but, the internet is not a reliable place to get a diagnosis for anything.

    The rash may very well be from an allergy, or eczema, but we can only guess, and that's not going to help the OP. It's best that he goes to the doctor for an accurate diagnosis. The internet has many useful tools, and a lot of information, but when it comes to your health it's best to trust a professional.
