Thanks for helping. I itch in the morning when I wake up, during the day and also at night when at home and also in bed when trying to sleep. The itching started on my thighs and hips, then started on my butt and midsection, moved on to my legs and arms and then on my neck and hands. I'm a 20 year old, waitress attending school full time and live off campus with a high school friend, who also suffers from the itchyness. It is between my fingers but not under my breasts, although it is under my armpits. I am not diabetic or on any meds. So far we've tried switching laundry soaps, flea bombing the house, washing bedding repeatedly, lotions and creams, and skin soothing baths... nothings worked.
Thanks for your help
