I have rash on my leg it’s only got worse, it itches and feels hot? admin Posted on Posted in Dermatology, Medical Questions 4 Comments Tagged with rash on my leg I’m 30 female the only medical conditions I have are anxiety and panic attacks.About 6 months ago I noticed this rash on my leg it’s only got worse.it itches and feels hot . It’s raised and bumpy.My leg feels like it’s tender with a constant ache.
it seems to be allergic dermatitis.
Apply local steroid based anti-allergic creams.
take anti-histaminic tablets for itch.
do not apply anything warm or hot.
In my opinion this looks like an atopic dermatitis ..
Treatment of atopic dermatitis is centered around rehydrating the skin with emollients like petroleum jelly and the cautious use of topical steroids to reduce inflammation and itching. Oral antihistamines may be helpful in breaking the “itch-scratch” cycle.
In my opinion first take an antihistaminic for example hyroxizine to stop itching
Second this can be either simple contact dermatitis or celullitis
If it is celluitis you will need to have a strong antibiotic course of treatment
I recommend you see a dermatologist to be safe
Contact dermatitis will improve on dose of 10mg hydroyzine every 12 hours
Also hydrocortisol cream should fix it
(Hydrocortisol cream can make cellulitis worse) so confirm your diagnosise at a dermatologist first
Tell me ma’am please, is the follicules that i can see is pierced with hair from the center or it is away from the hair origin, did you use wax recently…
