i've looked around, and haven't been able to find an answer. most of the lower half of my body has been really itchy for about a month or so. centers around any piece of skin my underwear touches, and on parts of my legs, arms, and sometimes hands. it gets really bad at times, almost to the point where i'm scratching so hard it hurts.there's this one spot on my right knee that's kind of dry and really red. i've tried using anti-bacterial body washes, lotions.. i just don't know what to do. if you have any other questions plese ask away.

  • Have you tried to take any Benadryl orally? I tried a spray-on Benadryl medication that I purchased from the local drug store and it was a great relief. I also had to switch to more gentle products for my bathing needs. Like aveeno shower oils and gels. The best lotion I have found is called Eucerin Calming Creme, it was recommended to me by my dermatologist. If your skin becomes over dry, like from the over use of anti bacterials, it can become irritated. Also, if your skin is reacting where your clothes are contacting it, try using a different laundry detergent that is free of dyes and perfumes.Hope that helps =)
