I have a rash on my ankles that wont't go away. It flares up at certain times of the day and night and itches like crazy. I scratch it raw and use everything over the counter and it wont go away. when it flares up it creates little blisters while it is itching and then it stops all oif the sudden,as fast as it came. whnat can i do?
I have the exact same problem, its driving me crazy. Its around my sock line on my left foot but sometimes also appears on my right, there are small red bumps and the skin feels very think. Its very itchy and when I itch it it seems to get kind of sticky like there is sap on it. The bumps are always red. A doctor once give me Nystatin to get rid of it which I thought it did. But this time I've been using Nystatin on and off for a month and it still isnt going away! Please someone help as it is very frustrating and annoying ot have your ankle itch like it has poison ivy everyday.
Hi! I saw the info about your rash and I was wondering if you've ever gotten any sort of diagnosis.
I have a similar problem. At night, or whenever I get hot, I seem to get this bright red rash on my ankle - just my right one, really. My left foot is rarely affected. The bright red rash is only somewhat itchy, but after about a day, it fades and looks a bit like old sunburn at that point. I often get a darkening of the skin in the area, almost like a tan. I have noticed my skin becoming more sensitive as I get older. I wonder if it's a sort of heat rash. Do you think that might be what yours is??
Did you find out what this is? I Feel your pain. I am up about two or three each morning itching like crazy. Both ankles only. Symptoms somewhat similar to poison ivy. No treatment has worked. This is not poison ivy as doc said it looked like. I am very allergic to poison ivy. When I get it I spread it everywhere. This does not spread. Rash is on ankles only .I have changed detergents bought new shoes used creams etc nothing works.
