Not sure if this is the same thing, but this crazy itching I've been getting goes from my scalp, and into my armpits, I'm always itching my armpits, but the major itch is on my arm, a burning, painful. It sucks. I say yeah, it's probably part of it. I think it affect us all differently.View Thread
I think it's so sad that I've been to a Dermatologist and my OBGYN and no one has even mentioned that Menopause might be what is causing this insane itching I've had for 2 years. I tried to stay away from "internet Dx" because it always leads me to cancer etc... and freaks me out, so I went in and saw both an OB (who put me on BC pills) and the Dermatologist who told me to take an Allegra and a Zytec, twice per day. That makes for a special day of feeling like extra special crap, add being 50 and feeling pregnant from the BC pills, and life is grand.
So here I sit, 5 am and here comes my little friend, I call him *annoying A hole" he's my ITCH, he comes at night, right arm, right shoulder, and he doesn't stop until I'm literally taking a hair brush to my arm, which we all know, only makes it worse. Today, it's extra bad, it's driving me nuts.
Welo, I guess gluten is on the menu again. Gold Bond works for me, the antihistamines work if you don't mind having massive anxiety, dry mouth and can sleep on and off all day, it's great.
