hi all, im a `newie`, in that my intense seemingly non-stop itching started almost a month ago..so far ive tried anti-histamines and highly salted cold water, (an old wifes tale type thing) nothing so far has eased it in the slightest.
However, i have been told by a friend of a friend that there seems to be a strong connection with this to stress, but especialy in those whom suffer from any form of sleep disorders, (im a chronic insomniac 20yrs) hence the majority here mentioning that it mostly happens at night time or if your feeling tired/low/down, and not able or in a position to sleep/rest. Mine suits this model of thought, thoguh i have to say, it is getting worse. My only `get-out` is ZIMOVANE, or ZIPCLONE in usa and some other contries. Its been puting me to sleep for twenty years...neggative is that i am now dependant on them for ANY sleep.
But iassure you, its not the way to go.Please mail me if you find a cure.(for the itching that is)
