      Hi Kareng,

      I had my hormones checked because after a lot of research, I found that hormonal imbalances can cause itching - my cortisol was low so I am going on cortisol in the next few days when it arrives from the doctor.

      Also, I think I was anemic as a child and wondering what kind of iron you are taking and what dosage & where to get it?? Please let me know, I'd like to try everything!

      Hope you have a nice day

      Severe Itching And No Rash
      Hi everyone,

      I am 24 and 3 years ago, my body started itching all over and I had a prickling sensation all over my body like bugs were crawling on me, but no rash whatsoever. For the past three years, I have been on an endless search from doctor to doctor, blood tests, skin biopsies to no avail. Everything comes up negative and doctors look at me like I am crazy, because I look completely normal. There is no rash, bumps, hives, to see how bad I am suffering. Doctors are absolutely puzzled and don't have any answers. I've been on every anti-histamine, nerve drugs, psychotropic medications, etc and I am still suffering. I feel like my situation is only getting worse. I used to be able to function and carry out my day but it has become so bad, I am unable to work or do anything.

      My sister is a celiac and I have recently cut out all gluten/dairy from my diet, even though the doctors said it wouldn't make a difference. I have not noticed any difference yet, so I am discouraged - but it has only been 5 days.

      Has anyone else been suffering with this horrible itching all over and NO RASH?? I am going out of my mind and don't know what to do, where to go to get any relief!

      ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!!!! I need to get better and will do anything!

      I am actually a red head and I have had severe itching all over, with no rash for the past three years. I am 24 and been to every specialist, had every blood test, biopsy, etc to no avail. I am suffering daily and just tried going gluten-free. It has only been one week and I dont see any change but am hoping with time and commitment, it will help.

      Has your daughter's itching gotten any better? Please let me know!
