A long string of skin conditions — allergies, psoriasis, scabies and poison ivy, to name just a few — can cause chronic itching, as can some illnesses, such as kidney disease and cancer.
And such powerful groups using such great techniques are addressing the problem, I wouldn’t be surprised if there are improved treatments in the not so great distant future.
Yes, somedays I get the itch all over, and I can't stop itchng, I try showers, but nothing works, that's when I take my benadryl it usually calms me down enough to get a Dear Itchy, sometimes if you are on opiods or even tramadol (ultram) they will make you itch.
