I have an itchy rash on both my shins for the last 6 weeks.

Customer Question
I have an itchy...

I have an itchy rash on both my shins for the last 6 weeks. It appeared suddenly but mostly disappeared when I was overseas for 12 days and then reappeared once I got back. I have been using Eucerin eczema ointment which helps with the itching but doesn't make it go away. I am 65 years old and male. Only med I'm on is 25 mg of thyroid meds.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

About 6 weeks. The Eucerin helps

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Last blood work exam showed no unusual conditions.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
