I am a 14 year old who has been suffering for about 6-8 months now from these "itch attacks". In this, I suddenly feel itchy around the body and burn up..They usually end within 20 seconds. I get these sometimes when taking hot showers, sometimes when thinking about personal things and sometimes before a quiz. Today i got really shocked at lunch and my entire face grew really red with small bumps surfacing. I managed to cool it down and get normal features after washing it in the bathroom. My doctor doesnt know what to do...Please help....thanx!

I had hives before and some white spots on my skin 2 years ago...no allergies i think

  • Are you sure you got tested for allergies? You would probably remember because they poke lots of little holes in your arm, unless this was done when you were small. It sure sounds like allergies or maybe food intolerance to me.

  • i think anxiety or stress can cause itching. maybe hormones too. if that doesn't fit, you may want to see a dermatologist (a doctor who specializes in skin problems) or ask a pediatrician if it may be hormone related. they should know more than regular family doctors.
