    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Nocturnal Itching

    I recently started itching at night starting in the early evening. There are no rashes and not localized in any area either. my whole body itches. Though not severe, it is annoying and keeps me awake at night. The itches subside during the day and comes back again in the early evening. Any info about the diagnosis of the condition is appreciated. Thanks,

    Have you recently changed medication? What about laundry detergent? I know that scabies can become more active at night and are almost invisible. Click here for more information:

    There's no way to diagnose over the internet, I would suggest a doctors appointment as soon as possible.
