Yolah! Is there anything else you suggest? Everyone - thank you for posting. I have had this problem for about 5 years now. Used to live in northern VA, now live in San Diego. I was told it was mold, allergies (my upper back would break out in hives, my lower legs would itch so bad I drew blood almost every time), stress-induced, etc. I've gone to a homeopath, dermatologist, allergist, primary care. I've gotten rid of perfumes, use calming cream, dye-free detergent. It seems if I don't wash my hair every day my head itches (but then it dries it out which causes the skin it touches to itch). I also realized if I don't immediately take a shower my upper back starts to itch. My legs itch more a) if I don't shave them every day and b) when they are exposed to air. It is SO frustrating especially because it seems there is no cause. I'm going to try the things suggested (vitamins, more water, omegas, natural products)...what other health benefits did you experience Yolah? Thank you all! I hope we find solutions soon!View Thread
