I am a 34 year old female. I have been experiencing extreme itching, mostly on my hands and feet, and it has been going on for at least 10 years. The past few months it has progressively become worse and worse and I sometimes wake up at night scratching myself till it bleeds.
My GP has done blood tests for allergies as well as to check my liver function, which came back negative. So that's ruled out. There is no rash, bumps of any kind.
The only mediaction that temporarily relieves the itching is Aterax (contains a calming agent as well as anti histamine)

Can you please give me advice on how to handle this situation and what the possible causes could be? :confused:
