For the past 3 or 4 years I've been experiencing what I call "popup" itching. I'll get a little itch on my forehead (for example) then another little itch on my arm, then my neck, then my nose, then my cheek, then my ear and on and on it goes, driving me CRAZY!!! This is keeping me from falling asleep at night, so I'll take 50 mg. Benadryl and within minutes the itching stops. There is no rash, no skin discoloration, no bumps or lumps. It occurs at all hours of the day and night but is worse at night when I'm ready to go to sleep. Any ideas what could be causing this problem? I'd appreciate any and all responses!!
