Over the last 5 months, i have been having unbearable itching, i have no rash, and have never experienced anything like this. I have tried calamine lotion and other topical creams to no avail. After a week or so of itching, i contacted my doctor, who told me to start taking antihistamine pills, ie Zyrtec, Cleritin, and other generic off brands. This did get rid of the itching, which i could only think that it has to be something that i am allergic to. The main problem with this is i have no idea what it could possibly be, i have dogs, but i have had dogs for my whole life and haven't gotten any new ones. Five or so months before the itching started happening i got a few hamsters, and they do sleep in my room, but i do not know if the bedding or just there dander can cause that, and if the problems would take that long to present themselves. The itching started in April, I don't know if that is when allergy season starts or not, because i have never had any types of allergies in my life, so i also do not know if it could just be a seasonal thing, but it has started to get colder out and the itching is still persisting. I live in northern Arizona ( the mountains ) where there are a lot of pine trees and other trees, but i have lived here my whole life, would allergies really take 19 years to present themselves? Someone please help.
