I've had itchy legs for pretty much most of my life, but in the past year, it's gotten really bad. I'll wake up in the middle of the night and scratch the sh!t out of them even if before I go to bed i say to myself "okay, no scratching tonight." It's not just at night though...it just feels so good when I scratch them, but then I hate myself right after because I'll have a bunch of spots on my legs where I obviously scratched too hard and I made them bleed. And then the scabs itch. It's a vicious cycle. During the summer, it got better. My mom told me to let them see the sun, so I started sunbathing in the yard and they got a little better...but of course I had scars so my legs never looked great, but still, they weren't as intensely itchy all the time like they are now. I try and moisturize, but that hasn't ever really seemed to help (hydrocortisone too. that helps sometimes, but you're not supposed to use it that regularly), and I don't have medical insurance so I can't go see a doctor about it...ugh. My mom insists that it's psoriasis, but it's not because I have psoriasis on other parts of my body (fingers, toes) and that's not it. Darn my skin! Darn my genes!!!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
