Hi. Im 15 years old, and for the past 4 months, my skin has been extremely itchy. This includes my face(itches the most), my neck, my arms, my back, and some other spots. There doesnt appear to be any rashes, but my face is noticabley swollen(not extremely, but at least I can notice it) The itching mostly comes and goes, and is usually caused by preasure, heat, stress, or it just comes out of nowhere. I have been to the doctor several times over the summer, and I am currently trying to get an appointment for a dermatologist. The doctor I saw last prescribed me with a hiztemine blocker, (i think that is what its called) which has had no effect, and if anything has made it worse. Im so tired of having to deal with this every day... Sometimes I can hardly pay attention in school because it is so bad. I just wish I could go on with my life. The worst part about this, is that it started around my birthday =( If you are suffering the same symtoms, or have any idea what is happening, please post.
