    Month 3 of intense itching all day and night. Back, stomach sides, inner thighs, and legs. No real sign of a rash..just scratches that I keep tearing open. My family Dr. gave me vistaril ...doesn't work, went to ER and they gave my 40mg of prednisone and Zyrtec for 7 days...started to subside but came right back after I finished the prednisone. Went to allergist today- no diagnosis at all- he ordered blood tests, derm appt next Tuesday. Other than the horrible itching I feel perfectly fine. I hv tried every topical cream and lotion available for relief and nothing works...Benadryl, Sarna, hyrocortisone, aloe, gold bond etc etc....so uncomfortable...any advice would be greatly appreciated. Now I'm freaking out thinking its internal like live or kidney problems. 37 female in good shape and considered healthy otherwise ..

    Hello, i tried everything too because my itching went out of control that later became wounds. One lady asked me if i want to try Nerium ad lotion. I did, and glad. Swelling went down after two hours, itching disappeared, now they even heal and one day i am sure it will be gone. Scientists discovered it after trying to find skin cancer cure/treatment. look me up on facebook or write me here, Edith (Iker) Nagy and see pictures of results. you will not be sorry.
