long term itchy skin spreading oozing crusty scabs no relief
I started itching in in July on my inner shin and broke out with what was thought to be poison ivy. It is now January and I have not been able to let my leg heal due to the extremely severe itching. I have a 6 inch patch on my leg that is driving me crazy.It finally spread to my other inner shin last month and now is in on both of my arms, stomache, back, ect. Just by itching I get these small little clear bumps that when broken from itching become even more unbearable. When they do start to heal they will get a yellowsh crusty scab and the entire area is redish. All of a sudden my leg will itch sooooo bad that I will dig until I bleed and tear off the entire area where it was getting better. I have covered my body in bandages, hortizones, eucerin cream, I switched soaps, took oatmael baths, cool water baths, I am taking Zyrtec, but so far nothing. I itch almost all day long. It is all of a sudden spreading like crazy. I'm at my wits end. I am sitting here now and itch in 5 areas of my body. Please help!!
