Alright so I have sensitive skin and durring the winter months, or when it gets cold and dry my skin gets very dry and itches. Its not a mild itch like many get on our nose etc its an irritated itch that almost feels dry, kind of similar to the itch associated with a rash.
The past few years I have gotten these little red bumps on my legs, al the way down, kinda resemble pimples, and I often dont notice them, they dont specificaly hurt or itch its just like a little red bump. Im not sure if this is part of the itching condition as I have no red bumps on my back arms or shoulders and they itch like mad as well.
My leg usualy itch the worst, and the past 2 days they have been so severe that its hard to ignore. They itch like mad fron the ankle into the groin area, the worst itchin is in the groin area specificaly the thighs, though my genitals and pubuc region dont seem to itch at all.
I cant see anything visible, such as a rash etc.
It seems to come and go, it wont itch for a little bit then all of a suddon the itching starts like crazy. It seems worse if I sit or lie motionless, as If I get up and walk around its barely noticeable.
I havent changed soaps and as far as I know the laundry detergant and fabric softeners I use havent changed either.
My scalp is also very itchy, almost like dandruff only the flakes dont come off as easily. I did have dandruff before but I got rid of that.
Any ideas this is driving me insane. I cant figure out whats causing it, and it has gotten so bad in the past couple days, mainly my legs and groin area.
Much help apreciated, thanks in advance.
