    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.

    Do you notice a time of day or a place where the itching seems to be worse? Have you started using any new soaps, lotions, perfumes or laundry detergents? Do you have a pet that you could be allergic to or that may have fleas? Or is there the possibility that there are mites or scabies in your house? It might be a good idea to make an appointment with a dermatologist to determine what is causing this itching. Please let us know how you are doing.

    Best wishes,
