Hey guys, I'm desperate here. It's been since the beginning of February that I've had this uncontrollable itching on my skin. It appears to be like permanent goosebumps that itch REALLY bad and they're sensitive to the heat. I was told it was not an allergy by an allergist, prescribed Prednisone, a steroid that only helped for about two weeks, then it got even worse.. Benadryl and Claritin help for about a few minutes and only to knock me out.. It's not scabies.. I don't know what the **** it is. It's driving me insane. I was told it might be stress, but I'm honestly not that stressed out more than usual. I've never had any sickness or illness in my life, and I'm 21. The worst I've had is tonsillitis. But that's it! Nothing else! I've made an appointment with my last resort, a holistic doctor, in hopes he will actually identify what's growing on me. I'm new to this forum, so I may or may not be able to share a few photos of what I'm going through.

PLEASE, any help is appreciated! I will definitely come back (if I remember, I have horrible memory) and share my results with my doctor.
