i had crawley things that itched on my whole head (including my face) and shoulders for a time after i'd overdone it, quite recentky ... gone now (a week), just needed the rest (a 30-hour day!), but sure was awful the three weeks that i had it -- scratched my shoulder until it nearly bled and couldn't help it ... i am under treatment for hypo ... hope this helps ...

Have any of you tried Gold Bond medicated lotion?
My husband has an itchy spot on his arm. He uses this every day and says it helps a lot.

Unhappy

the thing is, bosmom, one never knows where the itchy spots are going to strike, so unless one slathers oneself with it ...

i first felt my head itch after a hi-lite treatment on my hair, for which the hairdresser used one of those dish-heat things (i can only describe it as looking like something out of a 50's alien film) that burned the top of my head, but when it continued for a week and then expanded to my face and shoulders ... yuck!!!

it's gone, but only for now, i fear ... jb

I get one spot on the front of my right shin. Dr says dermatitis because I am over wt. Lack of good blood flow he says. Gave me a RX cream which did not work that well. At times it just goes away by it self. But if I am real tired or stressed it comes back, only much worse than the time before. And of course your fingernails are so dirty that when it comes back I have given myself a bigger rash than I had before.

Hormones being all messed up is about the worst think I can think of. Good luck
