I posted regarding taking Atarax as a way to help the itching. I am telling you - I felt insane too. Sratching till my arms bled...using anything sharp to scratch...keys, knives..etc. Like you...the itching would be dormant for months and months at a time and then I would have an attack. I tried everything too...antihistimines, lotions, steriods (ice was the only thing that really helped before the Atarax)...etc. Then I stumbled across this site and someone else mentioned taking Atarax. I had a feeling that I what I was experiencing was stress or anxiety related...a lot of my stress is manifested at night...teeth grinding and then the uncontrolable itching. I went to a regular Dr instead of the dermatologist and explained it all to him...then I mentioned the Atarax - and he thought it was a brillant idea. I swear the stuff is GODSEND!!! I feel in control...and if I start itching I take a pill and with in about 20 minutes I am back to normal.

Please consider giving Atarax a try.
