Intense Full Body Itching That Occurs Periodically

darkshadow posted:
I have recently had a terrible itching all over my body, my face, my torso, my orifices, and i cant pinpoint the issue. This has been happening for a long time, but not constant. It happens every once and a while (months) and occurs for minutes at a time. As i recall, it has only happened when lying in a bed, especially a bed im not used to, but most recently it was my own. I don't believe to be allergic to anything, and it shouldn't be anything i use daily because of when it happens. Although i did use fabric softener on my last load of clothes, but i wasnt wearing a shirt when it happened. I also think my it could be that my skin was dry, but i don't know. Help is welcome.

HI darkshadow, My daughter went through something like you are describing a couple of months ago. I took her to the doctor and he told me that I was most likely using too much detergent while washing her clothes. He recommended that I use nonscented body wash and lotion for her. You may want to try some of those things. I hope it helps! -Cassie
