  • I feel your pain. I have similar symptoms and I too have been to doctors and derms without diagnosis or treatment. I would suggest daily baths in anti-puritic oil and epsom salts (cup at least). This gives me some relief but is not a cure

  • Your symptoms could be due to a hypothyroid. Look up that...your girl friend on the other hand...not to sure. If it started recently, It might just be allergies.

  • You must be so uncomfortable. I can't imagine being that itchy! :( If you haven't already, you may want to look up Pruritis (essentially the itch sensation). There are several articles online that mention causes of pruritis that do not have an associated rash. The possible causes vary from systemic illnesses to allergic reactions. On the positive side, since both you and your girlfriend are suffering from the itching it is probably not a systemic condition. Best of luck.
