I feel for every one of you who have posted here. I have had un-diagnosed itching that started on both my calves abut two weeks after starting toenail fungus medication. two doctors told me to stop immediately because it may be affecting my liver. Now 12 months, Primary care Physician, dermatologist(s), Allergists later, the itching is over my entire body, begins with no rash, then small raised points (quite spread out, not close enough to be call a rash), then I scratch until they are open, bleeding sores. One doc actually said "stop scratching and call me in two months"... it has become maddening to the point of despair.
Now I'm heading to the big guns, University research hospital to be poked and prodded and hopefully someone will figure this out, because II can live with this too much longed.
