im in iraq at the moment and im having a few issues. every day, sometimes a few times a day, i start to itch all over from head to toe. if it goes on long enough i start to develop a rash on the sensitive areas of my body like my forearms. it feels like hundreds of little needles or bites all over me. i went and got blood work done by the docs and those came up "negative". i dont know whats causing it but i have been able to narrow down what isnt...
dry skin: i started using lotion
bed bugs: new mattress and sleeping bag
body soap: i changed brands
detergent: i got my cammies washed by a different contractor
food: i eat different foods
this is an everyday occurance so i have changed everything i possibly could about my day to day routine. the only thing that seems to help is to dowse my body in ice cold water and sit in one spot till it stops. heat seems to aggravate it. the "docs" told me that nothing is wrong and gave me some benadryl which has no effect except to make me drowsy. please, does anyone have any idea what this is and how i can fix it?
