Thank You for summing this up for alot of us. I have been going through this for over 2 years now and I have always tried all kinds of itching creams/ointments and spent alot of money and nothing really totally would work. I went to my doctor with pictures and he gave me steroid pills to take for 3 weeks and every week was a different dosage until finished, well that did not help at all. I have been doing alot of searching and I came up with nothing until now. I was going to make an appointment to a dermatoligist and bring the pictures I have and see what they had to say. I am going to research Dematographic Urticaria and look more into this. I understand it is not life threatening, but it is very annoying and so uncomfortable, especially when you are in bed and trying to get some sleep. I really wish there was some kind of cure, cause sometimes at work when it happens its very embarrassing and when it first started up on me my husband would say dont scratch it and he would really piss me off, he just does not understand how intense the itching can get. I get it all over my body, it will start on my arms and then just start spreadding all over and then after a while it just all dissappears. there are times I can go all day will nothing and then be at home watching tv or being on my lap top and bam it will start up. I will try to take your advise and will try to relax and relieve some stress, but it does not always occur when I am under stress.View Thread
