I have been experiencing itchy feet, legs, hands, arms, and sometimes other body parts for over a year now. Not sure what is going on, but if I take Zyrtec or Clariten or some kind of allergy pill, it helps. I have scratched in some places until I bleed, and now have scars. My doctor will not do tests for fungus or bacteria. I did get a small rash on the back of one of my legs right when this started, and we thought it was a case of Chiggers, and we were staying with my grandmother-in law for a few days. I had never had them before and assumed she knew what she was talking about. We covered it with clear nail polish, and they went away. I should also mention that right before this, I developed IBS, possibly Irritated Bowel Syndrome, and maybe even Celiac Disease. I have no insurance now and cannot continue with the blood testing with the doctor, we left it there for now. I do know that I can no longer take Benedryl, it makes me shake and feel delerious among other things, my husband thought I was having a sezuire once! I really need to know if anyone else has experienced this insane itchy issue, since I cannot sleep sometimes because of it. I know it isn't a food allergy. It cant be laundry detergent, soap, or anything that I am using, we have ruled that all out. I feel like Im going insane because of all this! Someone help please?
