  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Treatment for parathyroid benign includes water pill, vitamin D, and potassium chloride. Coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing occurs mostly at night. Once it starts, difficult to stop. Itching is daily, with visible hives and/or edema on occasion.

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I have had severe formincation for the last 31 years since menopause and the only slight relief I get is if I scrap the skin from my entire body with a very sharp knife. This can resume even straight after spending 4 and 5 hours taking the skin off and sometimes even comes back the very next morning.Average return is weekly. The doctor says after sending me to specialists for skin conditions that there is no answer and formication has been around 1000's years and I have to live with it. I am now almost 81 years old and I cant bear it much longer.
