I have been dealing with this issue. I itch constantly.

Customer Question

I have been dealing with this issue for years. I itch constantly. There is something that constantly irritates my skin. More at night, when I lay down. When I wake up in the morning, there are tiny bites on my face, neck and chest. I have searched for mites. But all I find are white specks in my sheets and on my body. I do not have any animals and I change my sheets every night. I have used 100% aloe Vera gel because I thought it might be walking dandruff. But again I don't have pets. Nothing works. Please can you give me some ideas?

Hi there ...

You should treat yourself for scabies , as it is highly likely that you have Scabies and you have such a dry itch .

Second sometime systemic illness like liver disease or kidney disease can cause itch .

I will suggest you that treat yourself for scabies and get liver and kidney test to rule out any secondary reason of itch .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
