wow....i have just been breaking down to realize that i am not alone! applying baby oil before i get out of the shower helps, Aveeno lotion with menthol for itchy skin helps, ice of course... but actually what had made the biggest difference in the last 2 weeks is my ADD medicine "Adderall XR" I have stopped drinking all caffeine and no more chocolate. As soon as the Adderall wears off after the 12 hours, i am itching again. i was told by a neurologist that is was nerves since it was just on my arms.
He believes it is anxiety based. after reading some of the comments i do believe that the summer heat and sun make it worse. We are out on the lake all the time and it is always worse in the sun. I also want to check into back issue. I have had problems with my lower back discs L3 and L4 are too close together. Please keep me posted with anything you find! Also, i noticed that this is mostly a woman thing... i started itching when i was pregnant with my 2nd child similar to other postings i read... that was 5 years ago. My husband thinks i am allergic to him because it usually flares up right as we are going to bed!!!
i will continue to check in and let you know if i find a cure!
thank you for all your info
