I have had this condition recently and I checked out the responses here. One person mentioned stopping Coke and Pepsi. It triggered a thought. I exercise at a club in the am. I sit and read outside by the pool after exercising. They provide free coffee and I usually have 2 or 3 cups of de-caf. One morning I took regular by mistake. I liked it better and I began drinking regular every day. Then the itching started and I thought it was a sun condition. After reading about Coke and Pepsi, I stopped drinking regular and the condition stopped. My guess is that my body was over-reacting to the heavy doses of caffeine. Same as Coke and Pepsi (caffeine).
