Hi. I am a 23 year old female living in North Carolina. My legs have been itching for about 3-4months. They feel so dry and I have patch of light discoloration in little areas. Sometimes when I scratch the hair follicles will get red and bleed a little. They look terrible when I scratch so I try to stop. I have been taking Zyrtec during the day and a benedryl at night when I think about it. They seem to itch more when its hotter or if I am sweating. I don't think its an allergic reactino because I just thought it would be all over then and this is just on my legs. on the inside of my theighs behind my knees and on my calves. I thought it could be fleas but I have found its not that either. I shave with a venus razor that I change regularly and use Caress soap. I have been using St. Ives soothing lotion recently and apply it in the am and pm. Lets hope this works. Does anyone know what it could be? I was thinking Exzema?
