    Unbearable itching that goes from stomach to my lower back! Help please someone how to stop it
    An_267616 posted:
    Okay people please help me because I have to clue what to do and can't get into a doctor! Well first of all I've dealt with the pain of itchy dry skin my whole life pretty much due to eczema. Depends on the weather it can break me pretty much causing me to itch even worse when applying lotion. Its like lotion don't help anymore it just makes it so much worse and painful! But for the last couple of months I've been having yhis random bust of itching come out mostly on my lower back bit some days its goes all the way over to my stomach and won't stop and be like for hours! I've tried everything! Lotion makes it worse and sting and burn hot air makes it burn baking soda bath gives me a little relief but if I put lotion on after it start all over! I use aveeno eczema lotion mostly and it uses to help I could apply it without it attacking my body and turning me red and itchy all over I've used it for years! Can anyone tell me what is causing this itching on my lower back and why all of a sudden my lotion don't work anymore. And BTW I am the one person who can use dove body wash and it give the that burn itching paid. You get when you put lotion on really dry skin! Anyone have any ideas of stuff I could use to help me? Please or what causes this? Thank you.
