Constant Itching
An_248874 posted:
When I was pregnant with my twins my legs, belly, and occasionally my arms were extremely itchy. I couldn't stop scratching. My OB tested for a few things and eventually told me to try Cortisone creams or Benadryll, nothing helped. My twins are now 13 months old and the itching has calmed and is not quite as intense but it hasn't stopped. My legs have been itching constantly for the past year and a half. I have not changed any products (laundry detergent, soap, razors, etc) for years. Occasionally I can feel little bumps on the backs of my legs, but I never see them. Any ideas or advice?
