Hello doctor, I am seventeen years old and am facing some itching problems in areas around my neck, waist and are under the knee. My mother is facing the same problem in her arms, legs and back. These areas are very itchy and become red when scratched. I have not consulted a doctor yet. I am very worried. I have been facing allergic problems like itchiness since my childhood but this has come after a long time. Can these be the symptoms of chicken pox? I have my XII board exams coming up and am very scared. please help me. Regards.

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou
