Hello, welcome to the site! My name is***** and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
May I ask when this started?
Does she have a rash?
about 8 months ago continues to get worse, no rash, skin feels perfectly smooth
Has she had any tests?
no as i said she can't go see a doctor without having to go in an ambulance
What has she tried so far?
allergy medicine like benadryl
lotions like noxema and jergens
Is the itching all over or in one area?
mostly in arms and legs
What medical conditions does she have?
muscle problems which keep from walking, she is 56, overweight, hasn't been able to walk for 8 months before that used a walker for several years
What medication does she take?
none accept aspirin
Okay, has she tried allegra or claratin or zyrtec?
All 3 of them?
I see, then this will likely require an oral steroid like prednisone or a drug like neurontin. Topical creams/ointments will not likely help this problem, because there is no rash or swelling.
She will also require blood tests like a complete blood count and complete metabolic profile
Are you there?
You may try using a different soap to help her symptoms as well
she won't go through the blood tests always makes her throw up, been thorugh those to see why she can't walk - nobody seems to know
tried different laundry detergent, including all the the allergy free ones
I meant bathing soap
tried different bath soaps and shampoos as well
Okay, then the trial of prednisone is the next best step
thank you I will see if I can get a prescription
You're very welcome
