My 16 yr old volleyball daughter has had bad body itching (mostly legs, hands and abdomen for a year now and has been on steroids, prescription creams, antihistamines consistently for over 6 months. She hasn't slept a full night in months Now within the last 2 months both my husband and I have developed skin itching on his back and my abdomen. This itching feeling driving us mad .... HELP?!?!

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

My daughter takes Reactinw morning and suppertime then Nenadryl at bed and prescribed steroid creams as well as a week of steroids back a few months. My husband takes no regular meds...I take Pentasa( recently increased) seroquel, lyrica, Effexor, Crestor, coversyl, alesse and zopiclone

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have Crohn's disease and treated depression that has been coming out of remission and we also have a University son who lives 3 hours away and has no itch business (but he also has Crohn's)

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
