I took Benadry for a few months last year to help me to sleep. Then one day I woke up itching and the itching never stopped. I went to a doctor who prescribed cortisone oil and Zyrtec the itching improved but as soon as I stopped taking them the itching would come back severely. I don't know what to do and I am desperate. How do I relief the itching? How do I stop taking a medication that has a grip on me?
I have lost countless hours of sleep and sanity due to the itch and overall pain doxycycline has caused me. I began taking it to help with the pain my acne is causing me, but this hypersensitivity & itch is driving me absolutely crazy. Does the pain subside after a certain point? Is this pain worth it? Please help!

I have had leg itching for several years. It wakes me up at night. Tried so many creams and products. I was told its dermatitis so I moisturize regularly. I find Sarna Sensitive to be effective. Thanks for any information that can be helpful.
