In Topic: Severe Itching And No Rash

06 February 2010 - 12:36 PM

I know what you mean. I have dry skin but this is a different, almost burning or stinging kind of itch. I saw something that said that some women in menopause get this. I know you are too young but your hormones could be out of whack. I thought that might be why I was having them. I was found to be extremely anemic. After I had been taking massive doses of iron for 4-5 weeks, the itching has gone away. Something to get checked if you haven't.


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 :P

Hi Meghan and welcome :)

That so frustrating--have you tried switching to unscented laundry detergent, fabric softener, soaps and hair care? I had that itching after going gluten-free and found that I was suddenly sensitive to those sorts of things. Worth a try if you haven't already.


Yes :( Unfortunately, I did all that in the first few weeks it started....now three years later it is worse than ever!!! I have traveled all over the country going from doctor to doctor....the weird thing is my body has no rash so doctors dont "SEE" anything wrong with me. Still searching...

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!
