    am now 22 i have being dealing with this since age 13

    i have all of the same symptoms it seems most of you all are experiencing as well.

    ALLERGY Medicine!! i sincerely doubt what we are experiencing is in fact Allergie BENDRYL s; HOWEVER non-anithistamine medicine fixes this discomfort EVERY time. I use over the counter generic is just fine. DO NOT USE BENEDRYL-by the time you feel relief you will also be asleep.

    a lot of people don't understand what this is-i've never met anyone else face-to-face with this condition. i tell people its a skin dis-order. i wait tables so when I'm "weeded" its particularly predominant and embarrassing, or on a first date, etc. its disruptive and frustrating to explaining"what this is" 10 dozen times even though we don't understand it fully. its uncomfortable and is inconvenient to say the least.

    TIP-COLD baths. warm will stimulate cells and cause more aggression and discomfort, cold does the opposite. though not satisfying it provides a lot of relief.

    i cannot be sure what or why we have this but any sort of allergy medicine is great, i just took 2 clarion though one generic does the job.
