Pruritus (itchiness) can be due to local irritation or a sign of systemic disease. Given that your symptoms are localized mainly to the legs, it is likely caused by local irritation. Of the causes of local irritation, contact dermatitis must be ruled out. You have changed your soap, lotion, and sheets. However, other causes of irritation include allergies to the dye in your jeans, material of your pantyhose, allergies to the wax/shaving cream you use on your legs, etc.

Certain systemic diseases can also lead to puriritis. You should be evaluated by your physician for liver disease as a buildup of bilirubin can lead to itchiness. Thyroid disease can also lead to pruritis. In addition, renal failure can lead to pruritis as well.

You should visit your physician or an allergist to determine the cause of your pruritis. A physical exam and bloodwork are essential for diagnosing your condition.

  5. I have been sick for quite some time with stomach problems and lung problems. I recently had a D Dimer done which resaults were 2.0 as well on a ct scan they found There is atelectasis in the lingula anterolaterally and inferiorly. Atelectasis versus scarring is seen in the midaspect of the lung bases. There is a tiny, non calcified nodule in the left major fissure measuring 0.4 cm in diameter. That was directly from the resaults. Quite a few family members including aunts uncles and mother had blood clots in their lungs. As well my grandfather passed of lung cancer when I was about 12 years old. Is there any advice you can give me? I have tried getting answers from my primary who just blows me off stating I have mood problems (which they said I had right after the lose of my 25 day old son so yes I would be majorly depressed.) I have tried getting answers for a while now with no real answers just that it is in my head because “I have Depression due to the lose of my son.” This same doctor tried telling me that all my lower left abdominal pain was from a cyst on my overy which I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis by a different Dr who ordered a colonoskopy(spelling?) My dr wanted me to cancel that procedure which I am not going to because I feel that procedure is nessasary to find the full cause of my stomach pain but my dr perscribed 2 antibiotics because my wbc was elevated. (he said that was caused because of diverticulitis yet according to him I dont have that) I know it dont make since. Also when I eat certion foods my stomach pain gets worse.
