Itching.... nothing helps, doctors have no clue

I'm actually researching this for my mother-in-law because she doesn't have access to the internet. She is in her late 50's and in 2002 she had her first episode of itching.

She itches all over her skin and behind her eyes; it generally starts with her feet and hands. Doctors have tried multiple treatments and prescriptions but nothing helps. It is possible that her digestive system isn't working very well and allowing for her to absorb the medicine.

The only thing that helps is early intervention and steroids. However, doctors keep on throwing her back and forth and are unsur about the causes. They can't seem to agree. Once they sent her home to die because they had no idea on what else to do for her.

When it gets severe, she has broken out into hives all over her body, swells up and becomes inflamed; she also gets a very high fever. No one knows why.

Doctors theorize immunity problems, environmental exposures... the bottom line is they are just unfamiliar.

We need to figure this out fast as her health and strength are failing. She presses on and that is good, but she is struggling. Often times, antibiotics don't help and actually triger other complications.

We believe she has a RARE itching disease, and doctors just don't know.

Once her dentist told her that she has perfect teeth, but that something was wrong with her system because all her nerves were dying so quickly although her teeth were healthy. That was one of the first clues that there was something wrong. She gets infected teeth and absesses easier than most people although she takes care of her teeth and they are healthy. It's her nerves that keep dying in them.

Any suggestions of what is causing this would be appreciated. We are located in Utah and if there is a doctor in our area that is knowledgeable about causes of itching skin, please let us know a name and location of where and how to contact them.

Thank you!

  • Has your mother had any surgery????? I had same problem -- had laproscopyand laparotomy during which multiple clips and staples were left in me -- I was not told the metal (titanium) and surgical steel were left there. I itchedall the time and nothing stopped it and no test showed it. Finally I went tothe library and studied allergies -- found a book there about making sure onetold their doctor if they were having surgery if they had ever had an allergyto metal or if they were unable to wear pierced earrings.... I have triedmultiple times to wear metal earrings but have been unable to do so-- itching, drainage from the piercing, etc. I got my x-ray records and the reports and words like clips and staples suddenly came alive to me. I tookthem to the two surgeons -- one of whom thought I was crazy and one of whom believed me. Guess what -- it was not pleasant but after they removed all the metal,I stopped all itching (I also had hives). I am allergic to surgical implants...If you mother has had any surgery ever, this may be the reason. MaggieFuss@aol.com th

  • This rings true! Happened to a friend of mine. The clips also came loose and were floating about. She had pains and rashes, now 40 years younger since removing it. Metals are some of the worst toxins, and there is seepage from all metals. It only takes very little to have effect. See Dr Hulda R. Clark's book "The Cure for All Diseases", it used to be downloadable from www.makulumutis.com/downloads/cure.zip - it has also been published in print.
