From this study (4 days ago):
Itching is localized on my back, scalp, and hip areas. It's so bad I can not get relief from scratching. I scratch so much n so hard I Welp up and almost bleed. Happened a few mos ago out if nowhere and lasted few days then returned again few mos later and won't go away.
From this study (1 month ago):
rash is spreading. Started on thighs and now involves everywhere but face. raised red bumps. Some with what looks like pimples/white heads. Not relieved by antihistamines. very itchy.
From this study (1 month ago):
Itching on my lower legs during the day very minimal but gets worse at night especially when I change from long pants to shorts and legs are exposed. Wear Jeans 90% of the week during work. Arms itch too but not to serious. No kidney or liver pain. Use moisturizer but it doesn't seem to stop itch, skin is quite dry on legs. Drink about 6 units alcohol per week and 4 energy drinks and about 10 coffees per week. Could caffeine cause itching. when I go to bed itching stops but starts again in the morning when I get up. seems itch is worse when not in a relaxed state. I am also a smoker.
