okay. first off i will say i have allergies but i'm started to doubt whats happening has nothing to do with them..

im hoping for peoples oppinions about this.

for some reason, i have a random itchy moment i guess you could call it.. one that makes me want to cry because it gets so bad. im trying my best to figure out what it is. for awhile i thought it was allergy related because i have cats. so id pull off my bedding wash it in hot water shower take some allergy meds then they kick in and i go to sleep bc they make me really sleepy then i wake up and im okay. well i just came down to brazil again, the last time i was here i only had one itch episode but i dont remember anything about that day that may have caused it. well i only been here a week and i had two episodes and im starting to think its nerve related. first one, i have a break down. (long story short me and my b/f are in the middle of getting married, six yr relationship and its hard to leave my mom and kitties lol) about 20-30 minutes into my break down i started to itch, i didnt think anything of it till it started to get worse, took my med showered, was fine. well it happened again to night but i got upset with my bf (we all have a days) thing is.. its not the first time i got upset with him, nor will it be the last. all the other times my mind went to something else. so im wondering if this 'itch' is a mental thing. or something. because i just dont see it being allergy or dry skin now.

thanks to whom ever reads and comments!!

You should really have this checked out. An allergist or dermatologist could at least rule out allergies and infections (which might not appear on the skin surface). If it is some type of infection or irritation, etc., you'll need an MD or DO to get treatment. And no matter what your age, they can test for diabetes and diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage), or other (non-diabetic) neuropathies. Might also be a dietary deficiency. You can also try some of the over the counter remedies I tried, like hydrocortisone cream, Tiger Balm, and capsaicin cream. Also, try icepacks. I went through years of frustration and itch before getting relief, which finally came through accupuncture. I still get itch attacks, but I can stick a needle in and they go away. I know this isn't for everyone, but you need to see a good DR to get checked out.Good luck!
