    Itching like crazy any advice welcome

    Nearly going out of my mind with a rally bad itch. I am itchy from head to toe, I believe this can be a part of anemia. Anyone else out there who has had this problem please let me know what you did, at this stage I have torn the skin from scratching.

    Thanks

    Hi Agenda:

    I am writing to let you know you are not alone. I am also suffering from the itching problem. Big hugs to you!

    Hopefully someone else will chime in with practical ways for both of us to combat the itching. Has it gotten any better since yesterday?

    Since I have very sensitive skin, lotions (no matter what type) tend to make my skin feel worse. Perhaps you may benefit from switching from a scented lotion to an unscented one.

    Regardless if you have sensitive skin or not, perhaps you could try using unscented/undyed soaps in the showers and laundry detergents, like I do? It may not solve the issue, however if you are not doing this already, since your skin is irritated from the scratching, it may aid in healing.

    Best of luck to you.

    A.

    Hello:

    I see the hematologist a week from Wednesday and will definitely ask about the itching. Good luck at the doctor's tomorrow and please let us know how things go.
