Around six months back I had sever itching all over my body and wherever i scratched, it turned red. Only red... no bumps or lesions and no changes in skin. Along with it I had pain/burning in my palms, soles whenever held anything tightly.
I started taking Atarax 10 mg for 10 days. The itching went away. After completion of Atarax 10 mg for 10 days, I again had pain/burn in my palms, especially fingertips whenever i held something tightly. My dermatologist again asked me to go on Atarax 10 mg for 1.5 months. After I stopped taking Atarax 10mg, the pain and burn returned in my palms.
The doctor asked me to continue for 3 months on Atarax 10mg which I did not do
. When I moved from my country India to USA ( in February) -- the itching started again throughout my body. I saw a physical here and she asked me to take Atarax only when required and she said it was a baby strength (10mg) and I should wait till summer to see a dermatologist or allergist. So since April, I am taking Atarax around twice a week. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what is wrong with my palms and soles and why have so many itches. Should I take Atarax every day? It is to remember that my palms and soles and lips don’t hurt at all when for around 4 days after I take one tablet of Atarax 10mg.
Any advice would be welcome. I really want to end my problem. I am also under thyroid medication and facing frequent urination problems -- any connection? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
