In 2007 I was diagnosed with Leukocytoclastic Vasculitis. It originated on my feet and has progressed to my knees and now it is on my arms from shoulder to finger tips. I feel like someone is pouring fire ants in my veins. I itch all the time. I am off my medication due to no medical insurance as well as when I was taking Dapsone at different intervals (up to 200mg a day) over a year period I contracted MRSA 3x's.
The breakout I have been dealing with now is on both arms on the underside of my upper arms. It is constantly itching and again feels like something is crawling under my skin, a pain that I hate having to deal with. My ankles this past weekend swelled to the size of softballs. They burned and itched, I scratched and now I have bruising on my ankles, feet and legs.
Could I be getting other symptoms to the vasculitis. I have been very fatigued. I am not losing weight (oh how I wish I was), I have cut back on carbonated sodas, I eat 80% healthy, I do not drink very often but usually it's only 1 or 2 beers.
I work at a Educational Theme Park and with being around so many guests a day, I cannot afford to go back on Dapsone, Prednasone or Colchine due to it lowering my immune system as it did when I had the MRSA.
Can anyone offer any suggestions as to what I can do to stop the itching ( creams, lotions and the like do not help..it makes it itch more).
