I have read through many of the postings. I just don't get it!!!!!! I simply cannot believe he lack of answers for all who have sought help from docs .......!
There are too many people here with no answers. I am new to this kind of itchy problem....and to see how many have no answers simply amazes me. It is also fairly discouraging.
I wrote in a few days ago with my first post....and since then I am itchier than ever. I have one HUGE welt that is not only itchy but warm to the touch. I have a variety of tiny spots......and small welts and the huge itchy warm welt. I keep popping Benedryl tablets and that helps a bit but the price to pay is grogginess. I have used the baking soda as someone suggested and I got a bit of relief but I still am itchy. I have taken bites of XANAX since that calms nerves and it helps some because I think our nerve endings in our skin are over-excited from whatever is causing the rash/ itchiness but that is addictive.....so you can't use it too frequently. THAT plus the Benedryl really makes me tired too.
I have tried every single topical cream/ spray that exists and none of that stuff really works. I have a prescription for a steroid cream and that is practically useless.
These rashes we have (except for the scabies people) in my opinion must be internally driven. Presently I am awaiting blood work results but after reading so many posts here I am not too encouraged that there will be an answer. If there is I will certainly post it.....but I am not that hopeful for an answer.
I just can't get over the number of people who write in here.....and the lack of answers. I think maybe there is a virus in adults for instance that has to run its course.....something that has not been defined yet......but when you have been itchy itchy for a while.....and it just keeps getting worse with more and more spots and welts.....ya gotta wonder WHEN is this thing going to reach a plateau at least.....
Anyway.....I am just venting because I have read so many posts and I am astounded at how there is such a lack of answers.....and what really astounds me is how many people are initially told they have scabies and then poison is applied to the skin .....with no results....when there should be a scraping taken first and examined under a microscope. That lotion is not good for the body.
Okay.......I just needed to vent....
