EXTREME ITCHING!! KINDLY RESPOND ASAP!! I have EXTREME OUT

EXTREME ITCHING!! KINDLY RESPOND ASAP!...
EXTREME ITCHING!! KINDLY RESPOND ASAP!! Hello, I have EXTREME OUT OF CONTROL ITCHING that comes and goes. I have it mostly on upper back, hips, front of belly. NO ointment or cream or anything seems to help. It comes and goes. I cannot see a specialist in another city (the closest one) for several days. I shower once twice daily. My wife uses only additive free and fragrence free soap. I have NO rash. No pimples. No new medications. I had this months ago and it just went away. My MD gave me a drug called HYDROXYZINE 25MG. It did and does nothing. What can take or do immediately?? I NEED SOMETHING because this is unbelievably distressing. I cannot sleep or work....just must exist until the spell goes away or diminishes. I have heard that an antihistimine can help. I have and can get more alergy medicine. Which one should I look for primary drug ingredient wise that MIGHT help? It is 3am here now and I am ready to go to Walmart to get whatever you recommend. It is DRIVING ME CRAZY it is sooooo intense. Please assist me. I will call my family doctor first thing in the morning but need help NOW Doctor.

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

At present, you should have an oatmeal bath. You can buy Aveeno Active Naturals Soothing Bath Treatment in Walmart to prepare an oatmeal bath. After the bath, you should immediately use moisturizer on the skin. This will help relieve the itching.

Later you can consult a skin specialist for further investigations and management of your generalized itching.

Take care.

Please let me know if you have further queries or unanswered questions.

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.

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.
