I have generalized itching without a rash that has temporarily been relieved by steroids but antihistamines and topical itch remidies do not work. So far the doctors think it is in my head since there is no rash but I still itch. Any ideas?:(

  • I guess the doctors run diffrent ceck ups on you.Itching can be ,,in your head'' but can also be a sign of a serious dissease as Liver cyrosis(i dont know your age and medical history) or some serous blood disease.I have similar problem but my hand palms and feet are itching at times and getting red.I am still going for ceck ups trying to find out why,hoping is not a serious problem.Good luck to u too..
