Patient discussion about itch

Q. Is itching related to breast cancer? Something I want to know on itching and breast cancer. Is itching related to breast cancer?

A. Generally itchiness is a common skin condition and the more troublesome form may be called eczema. There is a type of breast cancer called inflammatory breast cancer were the area of skin over the tumor can become red, inflamed, painful and itchy & this condition is called Paget's disease of the nipple, which is associated with breast cancer, can cause itchiness. It’s advisable to have yourself screened by doctor as the inflammatory breast cancer is very quick in its growth and late diagnosis is a bad idea.

Q. after a pedicure, the soles of my feet are dark w/freckles, skin is itchy/thick, my derm says its eczema,help! the pedicure was in fall, 2002. I mad a mistake and wore nylon boots during a storm, the dye never fully disappeared. I would scrub the soles of my feet until I couldn't walk. However, within the last 4 months both heels are itchy, thick, dark-er and now they both have dark legions/ freckles have formed.

A. Are you sure you are going to a clean sterile saloon? It is very important to make sure they use sterile tools for a pedicure because they can transfer fungal infections very easily. Either way you should see a dermatologist to get the right kind of cream treatment for your feet.

Q. I suffer from an itchy skin that appears as a wealt my doctor says it is contact dermitis, or is it uticaria I have numerous spots appearing on my neck shoulders elbows and buttocks, they vary from small itchy spots to quite large weals they come and go, I am on antihistamines, but they only give relief occasionally, the weals and terrible itching is worse at night, and I find it difficult to sleep because of the intense itching, my gp says it may be 'contact' dermititis, but I think it may be uticaria, can you help please

A. Urticaria (AKA Hives) is the name of this bulging red rush of yours. 'contact' dermatitis is an allergic reaction that can be shown as hives. so it's pretty much the same thing. i suggest try and find out what is the cause of all this- there must be a reason for that allergic reaction. start by when the rash started and what is the material you were exposed to in that area of time.
