Itching

Itching

Hi, just wondering if anyone else suffers from really itchy skin? So bad that when you scratch it you bleed?

Yes scalp I agree worse and ears, other places too, my head feels really tender when I brush my hair on daily basis

Not quite to that degree but always at nighttime where it can keep me up for hours! Have to keep dousing myself with a cold flannel until I fall asleep! I thought it was initially withdrawal from Lyrics which I was on for 10 years but has continued well after.

I just asked a similar question yesterday. I don't usually scratch, because I don't want to break the skin so I rub. However sometimes I want to! Itching is associated with flares. Mine get worse with activity or heat (like wearing layers of clothing). I don't really have any answers as far as how to treat it. I just try to avoid things that bring on the "itchys".

I have read that some side effects of certain medications are itchiness. I do have it sometimes.

I do, at night. I don't think it's medication, or I think I would be itchy all the time. I take benedryl sometimes when it's bad....really helps, but makes me pretty sleepy.
