Itchy rash on both the legs on shin area, spreading to hip area. What to do ?

I have had a rash on my both of my legs on the shin area. It started as a small rash but has spread but stayed in that area. It is lots of bumps that itch sooooo bad it of coarse it very red now. I have now started to have the same thing pop up around my hip area. No one else had it until about a few weeks ago and it showed up on the shin area also. It is now painful and still itches very badly. I have no insurance to go see a doctor.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

This rash is mostly due to skin allergy.

Do you have any history of food allergy?

If you find any allergen try to avoid the exposure to it.

For rash you can apply calamine lotion externally for soothing effect.

Oral antihistamines like cetrizine will give relief from itching.

Consult the doctor for examination of the rash and for prescriptionn of specific medication.

Hope I have answered your query.
