Well here is my story. After spending 6 years in the Navy and most of it overseas I left Japan and headed to Seattle for out processing. Soon after I got home I started to itch at night when I laid down for bed. I didnt think much of it at the time but it continued to get worse as time went by. I now have itching that keeps me from going to sleep and night and my wife keeps yelling at me since I toss and turn for a couple of hours. It seems to itch were ever I lay down. So if I lay down on my back my back will start to itch. If I lay down on my side its where the skin has been moved or is being laid on. Anyway I also itch during the day but not near as bad at night.
The only medical condition that I have that I now of is Ulcerative Colitis. My wife and I have tried everything we could think of from using special soaps to high dollar lotions everyone recommends. I was curious if the tap water we get could cause the problem? Wasnt sure if Hard or soft water had anything to do with it. reason why I asked this is because on the ship we didnt really put chemicals into the water to treat it. Not like they do in city water. And I didnt have this problem until I came back to the states.
Anyway any Ideas on what I could do would be great. My family doctor doesnt have a clue what to do since he just tells me to use special soaps and I am tired of getting the same response from him.
Thanks in advance.
