...and I am itching like crazy....all over. Ever since last year whenever I am hot I itch all over. Itch like mad. It drives me insane. Shower doesn't help unless it is COLD, then when I get out I get hot and itchy all over again. Same with the pool. Lotion of any kind (like aveeno lotion) makes it worse, and I can't feasibly use an anti-itch cream cuz they come in little tiny tubes made for itty bitty rashes or mosquito bites and my whole BODY itches. It is maddening! I bought some liquid benedryl to take right before I go exercise (I can't tolerate a regular adult dose) but only tried it once so far with no luck.
I asked my doctor, and she drew some labs, and were all pretty normal, and the ones that were a little "off" were related to other things. I think she's decided I'm a wacko hypochondriac.
Now, I'm not asking for advice, I am just COMPLAINING! and VENTING!!!!!!
Does *anyone* else have to deal with this? Or am I a freak of nature? Or maybe a wacko hypochondriac, haha!!!!!
Ugh, ok, I'll quit whining. I'm glad it's not cold anymore, but this itching is so nasty. Wish I could just enjoy the summer heat. Argh!!!!! Grunt! Snarfle!!
