I really need help. Iv gone to countless dermatoligists and allergy doctors. Originally diagnosed with hives I was on prednisone for 8 months straight! After that my skin has been unbelievably itchy. If I beak the skin from itching it will form a scab then itch like crazy until I scratch the scab off, then it gets bigger. This has been going on for 3 years. If it gets really bad then the hives come back. I really have to find out what the itchy scabs are so I can treat them and live my life. As of now Im covered and can't sleep or wear shorts or short sleeve shirts. Please Help Me!
