Question: Hi Dr. Rynne. I have a question. Since about mid December, my hips have been itchy (right where the hip bones are). I didn't pay any mind to it until I looked it up online and saw it's a symptom of lymphoma. I have no other symptoms, no rash, no bloating, lymph nodes aren't swollen, and no change in weight, diet, or energy level. It's not a severe pain that's crippling but it's just enough that it's noticable. I have been wearing tights to work lately but even when i take a break from those to wear something loose and comfy on the occasional day off, the itch is still there. It's on and off and not consistent. No history of cancer in my family. Am I just being paranoid? My allergies have also worsened in December a bit before the itch came up. Could that be a possibility too?
Thank you in advance.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,


I admire your positive outlook and congratulate you for the attitude



Now I guess you have itching sensation on hips



There are lots of pathological causes responsible for your problems


However, let me give my opinion here.


"As" per your clinical history is concerned please let me know something in details

1)have you marked any fluid filled lesions in that area?

2)Dose it looks like red rash and it is sensitivity to touch?

3)Is it one side of your body or two sides ? Please share a high resolution image of the spot as well as blood differential count report.
4)Do you have history of running nose?

Regarding Lymphoma i want to clarify that these are lymph node swellings which are painless.So nothing to be worried about it.

Hope this helps.

Hello, sorry for getting baxk to you so late.
1.) No fluid filled lesions.
2.) There is no rash, and it isnt sensitive to the touch. Just itchy. It's only red after i scratch it; when I stop, the redness goes away.
3.) Sometimes one side, sometimes the other, and sometimes both. I'll include an image. The first image is my right hip, and it's been itching today more than the left, and it's a little red in the image since i just scratched it. I have no blood differential count reports though.
4.) No, no runny nose, unless i'm sick. Congestion only recently, because of allergies.

Thanks again.

Hi,
Thanks for your question.

As per your history is concerned your problem does not indicate any major pathological disorders so you can try one non prescription cream on skin containing these compositions (Clotrimazole, Beclometasone propionate & Neomycin)

and secondly discuss with you doctor to prescribe one antihistamine like

levocetirizine

Finally, use loose dress until your symptoms resolves & do investigation as suggested earlier.



I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further clarifications, please do not hesitate to write to me.

Wishing you all the best.

Thanks

Hello, my name is Michael Boswell. I am a 22 year old part-time student living with my mother. I am writing because I have been to one gastroenterologist before, and they couldn t quite seem to find the answers I m looking for. At the age of 16, I started taking a weight lifting supplement ( creatine pill form) and the day I took 4 of them like what was told on the back of the bottle, I could already tell I wasn t able to hold in my urine, I couldn t even sit down for my football meeting because I had to go to the bathroom to urinate. I then struggled for 2 years through the remainder of High School with severe chronic pain , I went and saw my family doctor who then told me to go see a specialist, and I had two colonscopies and endoscopy done. The gastroenterologist agreed there was something causing my irritation, but couldn t figure out what it was. I had blood work done, and everything came back for Crohns Disease , and they then labeled me with IBS. I m asking for help because I m at a dead end, I still suffer EVERY day with some sort of symptom, whether it be irritation and pain in my stomach, or when I feel a Bowel Movement coming on the urgency that I have because I know I will not be able to hold it in...the medication they had given me worked, but with other symptoms arising. I was prescribed Hyosyamine ER 0.375 MG, and Paroxetine HCL 20 MG. I took them as told on the bottle, and I would RARELY have a BM through the week, but instead I would have one full day (Saturday) of me having to sit on the toilet. I have read that there are no cures, which is very discouraging, this disease or whatever you want to call it, has taken the happiness and normality out of my life, and has replaced it with anger and no hope. I am hoping there is someone that can please help me...
