I have also among other things have ad a severe problem with being itchy. During the day I am always itchy, my arms get covered with what looks like pimples and have been on ointment for exzema with no help. but at night in my sleep I scratch (usually) my legs to the point of bleeding. I have woken up many times to my find my pajama pants covered with blood. It drives my boyfriend crazy and most times is loud enough that it wakes him who in turn wakes me..I have tried everything, changing clothes detergent, creams. I'm going insane as some leave scars.
Anyone else have this problem?:confused:

  • Wow, sounds familiar. I had this too. It started out mild then kept getting worse day by day. I seen doctors and a dermatologist before I was referred to an allergy specialist. Nothing worked till then. Come to find out I was having a sever allergic reaction to about everything. I cleaned everything. Switched to Tide Free, Used liquid fabric softner (dryer sheets are horrible) and didn't use anthing with dyes or fragrances. I was also put on Zytrec. Boy did this make a difference. I now can use fragranced soaps and lotions and use regular tide, but won't use dryer sheets. I also have to take 1 Zyrtec daily or it starts right back up. But all is great now as long as I take the allergy pill. They tried other allergy pills first, but they either didn't work or made me way sleepy. Well that is my story in short. Good luck.

  • My itching isn't in my legs, but it is without relief, as is yours. Even if it is relieved by allergy Rx, it is important to know that "allergies" are caused by something. The info I got to help mine was to kill the organism that has found a nest that tickles the skin, and to make sure I had excellent nutrition to prevent future growth! For the surface abrasion, bees wax ointment soothes and quickly heals. Hope this helps.
