I am a 42 year old female.I have never had this problem before.
(did have a rash on lower back this past winter and was treated with a strong hydrcortisone)
I have been itching with no rash since June,2010. First it was just my palms and the soles of my feet. Now it can be any where on my body, armpits, inner forearm,ears. Went to my doc and got all the blood tests to rule anything serious out, I wasn't messing around, I wanted to know what and why I was having this problem.
Now I am trying to eleminate certain foods and see if it helps. Taking antihistimines when needed at night, thank goodness it hasn't interfered with sleep. I feel terrible for those who have that problem. I am scratching so hard and bruising or causing myself to bleed. It looks horrible.
Haven't switched soaps, using clear and free laundry detergent. Not using anything new. Have been in the pool a handful of times this summer and do itch more while in the pool.
This is just so weird, and frustrating!!!!!!!
Thanks for your time. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
