Allergic to your own sweat? #itchy #Scratchy #sweat #Allery #AmIJustCrazy #Simpsons

I am noticing every time I sweat I get horribly itchy, red, blotchy and rash like.
Can someone be allergic to their own sweat?
Can the boy create an allergy gradually?
What can be done for this if it’s a real condition?
If this is a thing, how would I get some sort of diagnosis?
Or am I just going crazy? Lol
I’ll be over here putting on my own personal Itchy and Scratchy show (Simpsons reference ) while I wait for responses. Lol. Thanks in advance. -Brandy

Anyone Else Suffer This? #Anxiety

I just moved and when I sit in our living room I get INCREDIBLY itchy.

Only in the living room.
We tested for bugs and found none.

I'm so itchy I'm miserable. I can't sit in our living room.

Is this a weird symptom of anxiety?
Does anyone else have a problem like this?
Am I crazy?

Not worth it for me!!

When I got my first bad flare up and didn't know what was happening to me, my doc put me on prednisone temporary. It was the only thing that seemed to help.
I did look so different for being on it for about 4 to 6 months at the most. I noticed for the past year or little longer some of my symptoms like hardcore itching, tingling in my hands, cramps in my calfs and bad headaches!! My headaches I got still but not as severe. Just recently all these symptoms are coming back with vengeance! It was a nice break from it all. I am still waiting to see a specialist after all this time and I hate being so uncomfortable on top of being in pain! I could ask for some prednisone again to help but I am already struggling with trying to reverse the side effects of this drug and what it did to my self esteem, that I don't know if it is even worth it. I don't know, I guess it is pretty sad when you rather suffer, than feel ugly

P.S I know my pictures of my fur baby Loki has nothing to do with my writing, he is just my light in my dark world!

Do you ever feel that there are things crawling on you when there not?

I can look at my skin and see nothing but I feel something crawling! 😬 #skindisorders #invisibleinsects #crawling #bugs #itchy


Medication allergy and #Autism

Just ended up with a second medication I’m allergic to in under a week. Is there anything worse than being an itchy mess when you have touch sensory issues?!?

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!
