I have fair skin so it has always been sensitive. Lately it has become beyond a joke.

I literally have to scratch every inch of my body till the point that it feels like its on fire!!!!I don't know what to do!! I'm in tears most nights from total frustration!!

I'm not eating anything different but could I be allergic to something??

For the time being does anyone have any home remodies or any type of 'over the counter' medication ideas???

Thanks

It could be hives. Talk to a dermatologist.

It is probably not hives. I experience this sporadically and I believe it is hormones (women), allergy and also maybe nerve related. It has been going on for years. When the weather is windy and in the high 30's, 40's 50's I get the itches. Hope this makes some sense. It is almost tormenting, especially when trying to sleep. Keep a record of when it happens.
