Thank you Tim.
I am going to look up all your meds to check for itching as a side effect.
I will be back in a few minutes.
thank you - i am here and will wait
Alright it looks like itching is a side effect of:
That being said it could also be caused by decreased circulation.
Do not try stopping any of your meds to find out as this could be very dangerous.
Talk to you doctor about it to see if he might want to try to change any of your meds.
Ask him too if you are allowed to take Benadryl to decrease the itching.
A hydrocortisone cream max strength could help too.
I would have you r doctor check you though to make sure you don't have a fungal infection that is causing this.
I hope it stops soon.
Best Wishes to you Tim,
Glad to help!
Come back anytime.
