Re: Intense Itching
I've read up on this issue on several sites and they all seem to say the same thing. The first thing is that if it is an itch that feels "under the skin", a lotion or cream application won't relieve the itch because there is an underlying cause within the body. The sites have listed serious diseases such as Liver failure, kidney failure, or celiac disease. The thing that all of these have in common is the problem is with the body malfunctioning.
Start keeping track of your "itching attacks". Recall everything you ate that day and see if there is a pattern. If it's something like celiac's then it will be gluten intolerance. If your seeing any kind of pattern I'd consult your doctor and see if it could possibly be one of these.
