Intense, sudden itching on thigh, small red bumps and dime size bruises. Reasons ?
Hi, Yesterday I while in a store I had very intense and sudden itching on my thigh. I scratched for awhile, every couple minutes. When I got home and used the bathroom I noticed my leg was covered in small red bumps and dime size bruises. What would causes this? I thought maybe the scratching itself had caused the bruising? I am not taking any medication .
Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das,
From your history, it is clear that you ha a allergic reaction. As you told you were in store, the cause may be dust, fibre, etc. You must have to take cetrizine like drugs. Dose is 5mg once daily.
