    I scratch my legs so hard they bleed

    For as long as I can remember, my legs have been itchy. Usually, it's more noticeable on a night. However, I also notice intense itching after shaving (even with a brand new razor and sensitive foam) and during temperature change, for example if I was outside in the cold and came into a warm home). In the last year, it seems to have gotten worse. The itching is so bad, I scratch at my legs until I leave scratch marks all over them and sometimes they even bleed. My legs look horrible some mornings....

    Hello WebMD Community. I'm posting this for my mom because she has had a skin condition for the last 2 years and no matter how many doctors she goes to we cant find out what it is. She has been misdiagnosed with psoriasis and even exema but neither one of those treatments have worked. We have wasted hundred on different types of creams and even visiting different doctors but nothing yet. I'm hoping someone has been thru this before and has found out what it is. To give a little background....

    I injured my right knee on Wednesday. Had a lot of pain and swelling Wednesday night. Went to ER Thursday and started antibiotics. It’s now Sunday and although it not worse it doesn’t seem any better. Also still had fever through Saturday night. Does anyone know how long it should take for the swelling to reduce and pain to go away?

    Can a person be allergic to Salt?

    I really think I am. I've asked doctors but they kinda dismiss it. When I put myself on a special diet with no salt EVERYTHING changed. I've also read that a lack of salt can trigger an allergy-type reaction. Has anybody heard ANYTHING like this?

    Itchy rash post exercise

    Help! It’s been 5 years of misery! I’m breaking out in a horrible itchy rash after sweating/exercise! It’s mostly isolated on my inner thighs making it hard to walk. I’ve seen so many doctors and had diagnoses ranging from eczema to fungal infection to cholinergic urticaria. NOTHING seems to help. I stopped working out for a few years because of it, but I need to exercise to stay healthy! Any thought or advice? Thanks

    Bumps on skin

    So my boyfriend has had a history with excema but lately he’s been getting this weird bumps all over his body. Most of them look like mosquito bites and he’ll get like 1 or two in random spots and then he’ll have another area with like 5-6 and they’ll get really swollen. So it looks like swollen mosquito bumps but I know it can be mosquito because it just looks insane. Any suggestions ? In the images I applied calamine lotion so that’s why it’s pink. Which really helps with swelling and usually helps....

    Severe itch no rash

    For the last 2 months I have been experiencing the most extreme itching in arms and legs. Normally first thing in the morning after shower. I’ve switched soaps,lotion,detergents-so far nothing has worked. I’m taking shorter showers with lukewarm water. Went to PCP she said to take Allegra or Zyrtec daily and stop taking water pill. Nothing works. The only new medicine I’ve been given in last few months is Fenofibrate. It’s driving me crazy to the point I had morning time just because I know it all....

    Severe Itching With No Visible Signs On Skin

    For the past 3 months, I have been dealing with an insane and progressive itch. I had been prescribed a liquid cough syrup (hydrocodone) for bronchitis. Normally narcotic meds make my hands mildly itchy for several days once off of the meds. Initially, my palms and feet started to itch very badly and worse at night. I ended up taking Benadryl which helped for a day and then did not help anymore. I visited the doctor who put me on Prednisone. While on the meds, I did not have any itching. After completing....
