I have episodes of itching. The more I scratch, the more it itches. It also causes a chain reaction. Once I itch in one place, another place will start itching and it's all over. Sometimes it seems the itching is under the skin and I just can't get to it. I have caused a lot of bruises from scratching. I have learned that if I can manage to stop scratching for a few, it will settle down only to start again very soon after. This will go on for a couple of days sometimes, then stop. Anyone else know about this? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!
