When I go outside and walk anything that is touching my skin (clothes, socks) gets my skin itching horribly. This can also happen without clothes touching (like when running at a beach). I can't do any outdoor sports or run or even walk much of a distance. Sometimes even indoors i'll get attacks like if someone rubs my shoulders.
The itching is beyond painful! :(
I take clairnex for allergies which makes it more bearable (otherwise the itching is painful to where I want to almost cry, although I hardly ever get any type of visible bumps or swelling).
When I scratch I get swollen red lines like when someone who is allergic to cats gets scratched by one. I use detergents that are made for sensitive skin and am very careful about skin products. Has anyone heard of this type of allergy?
This has been going on for years and just seems to be getting worse.
Don't know if it is related, but sometimes I feel like my immune system might be involved. I get colds and infections a lot.
I'm seeing a dermotologist this Friday, however I've been to them before so I'm not that hopefull. Most are used to the traditional food / sneezing alergies.
