Body itching all over

Recommended Posts

Or mostly all over. About TV no go see a doctor hopefully a demitologist. Not sure if pollution is causing this. But it is bad, no hives etc seen.

I get it too. Just use a good moisturiser - nivea or something like that

Try Aloe Vera. I have had itching for weeks. The aloe vera soothed it but still have slight itching, so I have just ordered Coal Tar shampoo from Ebay can't seem to find it here.

Get a liver and kidney function check, urinalysis and blood count... rule out the serious stuff first

I was the same, local hospital said it is an allergy, a reaction to chemicals etc in food, clothing, atmosphere etc. Gave me an injection in the bum, anti-histamines, cream and moisturiser. Cleared up quickly though I did have a bit of a reaction to the tabs.

 

When I get a recurrence I take half an anti-histamine every two days. The itching was torture, but mainly Ok now.

As there are many causes a couple of "odd" points I cannot see mentioned as possibilities:-

 

- depending on where you live the winter season and now as we are moving in to summer there can be lots of small sand / dust particles in the air, especially when the wind blows from the China deserts.

 

- the wind as mentioned above can cause high static which can cause itching especially if wearing nylon or polyester clothes.   Wearing cotton clothes, if possible, may help alleviate the itching.

 

- if you live in an apartment that has carpets the static again can be cause as well as dust mites.

 

- dry laundry outside out to help prevent dust particles which may have become embedded in the clothes from coming in to contact with your body.

 

-if using only fans to cool your body these also create a lot of static, as can be seen by the dust collected on the fan blade.

 

- use cotton bed linen.

 

- obviously as many have mentioned what you eat with or without chemicals added can be a major cause of allergic responses.

 

Good luck in finding  the cause and treatment.

Thanks for imputs. No do not drink nothing new taken, same meds etc. I went to hospital got some cream and pills that really put me to sleep. I continue to have itching but better.

Thanks for no nonsense ideas.
