Suggest treatment for intermittent itchy red spots around ankles
need some details to guide you better
My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.
I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. There could be a number of causes for your complaint. I would be in a better position to guide you if you answer following questions please:
1. since when are you having this problem?
2. did it start after taking some particular food or after going to bed?
3. are you allergic to some food?
4. did such problem occur in past?
5. do you have diabetes, hypertension or any other illness?
6. Are you able to feel the dots with your fingers?
7. is anyone else in the family also having similar complaint?
I will be looking forward for the answers to conclude the discussion in the best interest of yours.
Also have joint aches and muscle tension that seems abnormal for a 34 year old.
most probably allergic response
Thank you for getting back with the answers. There is high possibility that rash was in response to allergic reaction. If i were your treating doctor then i would have advised following things:
- cetirizine one at night for 4 days
- try not to scratch the area else it might leave scar.
- naproxen thrice a day for 2 days.
Hopefully you will see improvement in 2-3 days but rash will take a while to regress. If condition remains same or aggravates then you need to visit hospital for further workup.
Feel free to get back for if you have any query. If not then don’t forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you a good health
