Uncontrolable severe itching
gerb01 posted:
Had severe uncontrolable itching, from a sunburn, on my forearms.
Felt like my skin was crawling, and happened mostly at nite, while trying to sleep, and driving me crazy.
Tried useing all types of creams, lotions, and moistureizers. Nothing worked.
Found out, it was a reaction, from my cholesterol medication, brought on by the sunburn. I came off of my cholesterol medication, and the itching was gone, within a couple of days.
