Itchy skin NO rash

Hey everyone.

I wasnt sure where to post this so maybe someone can help me!
For at least a year, my boyfriend has had this itch on his chest. Its all over the top half of his chest. We cant seem to firgure out what the itch is from.

There is NO rash, no scaly skin, nothing, it looks like normal skin there. But it itchs him constantly, sometimes he wakes up in the middle of the night itching it, he itchs it sooo much he doesnt even realize he's doing it anymore! It does get worse as he starts to sweat on his chest, but besides that, it is pretty much random all throughout the day.

Anyone experince this or have any suggestions? I'm kinda worried about him.

Thanks!

Re: Itchy skin NO rash

It might be an allergic reaction to a particular food or medication. Try keeping track of what he eats to see if you can pinpoint anything like that. Benedryl might help the itching.

Re: Itchy skin NO rash

i got a huge allergic reaction last may and because of it i've had hyper sensitive skin in specific areas. i'm sure our causes differ but the only thing that i've found to help soothe the itch is aveeno products. i currently use aveeno foaming gel or something like that.. it works amazingly!
