    Hives from cat?

    The last 2 months I’ve woken up with hives all over my forearms that fade slightly during the day. I finally went to a doctor and they’re trying a steroid to eliminate them. If that doesn’t work I’ll probably be going to an allergist or dermatologist. I have 2 cats and a mild cat allergy. They just make me a little sniffly and sometimes my eyes itch. Maybe once a year when I get a scratch it forms a hive with it but that’s it. They’ve been sleeping on my bed for years but they’ve started sleeping....

    Chronic itching

    I have the exact same problem with severe chronic itching without skin rash, hives, etc. Over a year now, but recently more severe. Benadryl, hydroxizine, prednisone, zantac, and every topical there is, have been tried with no results. I'm at my wit's end! Nothing new in my environment at all! It's a deep, stinging itch that never stops. Done a lot of tests with no answers. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

    Itching scalp

    I have intermittent burning itching all over my body and have for years. I have eczema that is generally well controlled with topical triamcinolone. Several weeks ago I developed an itchy scalp at the back of my head! At first I was terrified I had some infestation, so I treated myself for lice and scabies even though I have no idea how I would have contracted parasites like that! That didn't help...I have seen my primary care and a dermatologist twice...Prednisone helped some while I was on....

    Severe itching

    I hate to read that so many people have this, but at least I know I’m not the only one. I use to have this maybe once a week for the past two decades but now I have it every day. Worse at night plus I have insomnia. You can’t sleep thru this anyway. Mine is mostly my upper body and my whole head. Even in my ears and nose itch. My eyes itch at the base of my lashes. I’ll scratch so much that I have scars and scabs all over. It jumps from one place to another in less than a second. No rash or bumps....

I would like to read here more about it. Thanks!

    Hives

    I have a ten year old that is suffering from chronic hives.  We have been to a specialist and they have performed gratuitous blood tests and charged us astronomically for them, but they have yet to come up with anything that could be a trigger.  They are medicating him beyond my liking with Ranitidine and Omeprazole.  They have told us to keep him on these indefinitely but I have a hard time medicating him every day without knowing the effects they can cause after long term use.  I also don’t like....

    What could be causing these symptoms?

    Every single time I stay at my in-laws within a couple hours I get a migraine and if we stay the night I always get sick. I develop a wet productive cough, chest congestion sore throat, sinus pressure, stuffy runny nose and trouble breathing / wheezing. I have a history of asthma but whenever I stay there it flares up for both my 2 year old son and I. I'm worried is mold. I don't visibly see mold in their house but I am concerned because this literally happens every time we stay there. I'm....
