First let me start off by saying I am so glad this website and forum exists. I want to find out what is wrong with me.
This has been happening ever since I moved from Lubbock, Texas to Cedar Park, Texas - about 380 miles difference. I have been dealing with it for over a year and a half.
I am taking this very seriously.
My legs are extremely itchy only at nighttime when I go to sleep. I have found that heat or hot water makes the itching very intense. The underside of my arms from the elbow to the upper armpit area have tiny little bumps which itch also. Several dozen on each arm. I also get these mosquito like bumps that randomly appear on my forearms. My palms and fingers get raised bumps that appear transparent and have a clear fluid inside. The fluid is released when scratched too much. I get bumps that feel like mosquito bites around my waist.
And most importantly - MY FEET AND ANKLES. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD if there is anyone out there who is experiencing the same thing please help me. The backsides of my ankles begin to itch at night, and then after the scratching begins these white bumps appear in hives and itch like there is no tomorrow. Here is what the back of my ankles look like when itching:
These bumps also appear in small numbers around the top and sides of the foot. The itching spreads up my legs and also my knees are a very intense spot of itching. I scratch and lose hours of sleep. Last night I didn't fall asleep until 7A.M. this morning.
I assume these raised white bumps are all over my legs, but it is hard to tell due to being a pretty hairy person all over. I can feel some.
Docs do not know what this is and have only suggested hydrocortizone cream. This is unrealistic. I cannot afford to buy so much of this cream to cover my entire feet, legs, knees, arms, and waist every night. I have tried it in the most intense spots and it helps some but not to the fullest extent.
