#LymeDisease #Fibromyalgia #Skin #itch #Feet desperate for any info regarding a horrible itchy burning rash on soles of feet only

I am new here & am desperately seeking any help or info regarding this red, shiny, itchy, burning, painful rash that is on the soles of both of my feet. I suffer from Lyme Disease, borriella miyamotoi, fibromyalgia, migraines. I have been dealing with this rash for 4 years. it has gotten worse & I have been to numerous doctors and specialists and even a “grand round” of a team of approx 15 doctors at a medical center and no one can tell me what it is and no medicine I have tried to date has helped.


Does anyone have any recommendations for extremely itchy skin?

I have a large rash that is all over the top of my back and my chest that itches profusely. It looks like giant patches of dry skin, but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be responding to any sort of treatment like regular dry skin would. It’s definitely not eczema (I have it and this rash is not presenting even remotely the same as my eczema) or psoriasis.

My GP isn’t sure if it’s idiopathic hives or something else and unfortunately the itching is driving me crazy. I’ve had it for at least a month now. I’ve tried different lotions, cold showers, coconut oil, etc.

Also, I do have a photo of the rash, if that helps at all! I just wasn’t sure if I’d be allowed to post it in this post, so I figured I wouldn’t.

Any suggestions are appreciated! thank you!

Does anyone have extreme itching issues #itch #cannotstop #redtobleed

#Fibromyalgia My legs, upper arms, hands and shins seem to be the places that are most affected. For no reason these places begin to itch and I can't stop until they are red and raw. I also seem to get rashes around my abdomen and tend to scratch those until raw. The doctor has no explanation for the rash that occurs randomly. I use many different moisturizers to help if my skin is dry but the itch comes from within my body not the surface.

Swollen and itchy

Sooooo, just for fun I added shingles and eColi this year. I had shingles for 3 months, 5 months ago and I have residual itching and swelling on my hands.
My itching has triggers like a bug bite or a bumped hand will start a whole itch cycle.
I started antibiotics yesterday, I scratch myself raw once it starts. For instant relief I use a cannabis spray and a lidocaine cream but I am seeking more relief, any suggestions? (BTW, I don't have a tub)

I get itchy randomly. More often than not I end up in random hives. Usually just one or two spots in my body. But there have been times it’s my entire body. No rhyme. No reason. No new medication. No new foods or drinks. Same soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry soap, etc... . It seems to happen more often in the evenings and/or when I can’t sleep at night. Is this something anyone else has dealt with? Is this yet another sign I may have Fibromyalgia? Could it be anything else? Benadryl doesn’t help hardly at all unless I take more than one or two.
