Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello I'm Dr Chip
Can you more fully explain what you're feeling please?
OK--but just to be clear--it actually itches?
Did you have chicken pox as a child?
About the only thing that can cause this feeling is shingles
Usually the typical rash breaks out within a few days of the beginning of the symptoms but not always
I suggest you see your doctor for an exam and if I were your doctor I would prescribe a course of acyclovir for this
Please let me know if you need any more information
I've seen this even without a rash ever occurring
And it can be just a small area
