  1. Severe Itching And No Rash

    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
  2. Itchy Skin?

    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...
  3. 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! Meghan Reilly
  4. Horrible Itching for 3 years

  5. Itchy Skin?

    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! Meghan
