I am 25 years old and I have mrsa as of now I have a really bad outbreak on my breast. My whole body is itching beyond imagination; specifily my back, my neck, my thighs, under my breast (rib area), under my arms, the back of my arms (back under arm area), my stomach (around my bell button) also above my vagina. I have come to notice a lot (not all) but some of the areas I am itching are areas that have strech marks and areas that sweat. I have been to the hospital 3 times and they have sent me home saying there is nothing they can do for me. I have not slept in days cuz when I do I am itching in my sleep also which keeps me up.
I am going insane. The only time I can sleep is when laying in a bath tub full of water; sadly. I've tried lotion thinking maybe I have dry skin. It works for a little while (mean maybe mins). Benadryl doesn't seem to do anything for me either. I haven't change any kind of soap, detergent, deoterent, or anything else I can think of. I've tried showering without soap and not using deoterent for 2 days to see if a change would occur, but nothing. Also, my hands itch like crazy so bad that I have tiny blisters and peeling skin.
As far as stress wise, I don't feel stressed out. I know sometimes you may not feel stressed out but maybe mentally you are, so that could be a possiablity. I am totally helpless and don't know what more to do and I am going insane. I do not have insurance or money to go to numerous doctors for them to tell me absolutly nothing. So if anyone has any suggestions it would be very helpful. I am willing to try anything at this point. I also tried an oatmeal bath, which also did nothing to relieve the compulsive itching.
Please someone help me, I am desperate to the point I am in tears and I am exausted.
