Itching is the worst! I had a nasty pine needle allergy after Christmas (Turns out I was allergic to our tree) and ever since then, my skin on my legs has been really dry and itchy. You have my deepest sympathies!

I hope you feel better soon. Do you have a friend you can call on the phone to chat with for a few minutes to not feel so lonely?

Where are you going for your anniversary? =)

Vicodin makes you SO itchy! I’ve had a foot problem for nearly 9 years and have been on it a good chunk of time during the years. Benadryl will stop the itching! I would call and ask your doctor if you can take it. As an added bonus- it makes you sleepy so you can sleep through the uncomfortableness!

I’m so sorry you aren’t feeling well! Feel better!

Hopefully you’re feeling at least a little bit better. I”ve had my fair share of kidney infections, and they’re no fun. When I’m itchy all over, Benadryl usually helps but makes me very drowsy. After my most recent allergic reaction, I was still itchy all over, and had a rash (it started w/ a rash, but by the time i went to the ER the rash was over 75% of my body and my lips were swelling). The ER dr prescribed something to help with the itchies – I can go see if i have the bottle left or ask Mr Lobizon if he knows what it culd be (love being married to a nurse!). Any chance if you’re still itchy your dr would call something in? Load up some Netflix, grab some trashy mags, and take it easy!

@JemmyGee:  Oh yuck, I’m sorry you’re still miserable! That’s really the worst. I was on a medication before for lupus that made my skin so sensitive, I didn’t want blankets or sheets on me. If it were me, I’d be setting my alarm (I’m so not a morning person) to call the dr’s office as soon as they open – I hate being miserable when something can help, even if it’s a shot. Would they give you steroids? Glad that your husband is spoiling you! You probably deserved being spoiled before, but now you need it!

I just found the medication they prescribed when I had my reaction was Atarax (generic is hydroxyzine hcl). Obviously different meds may work differently for different people. I just know that it totally did the trick. I already knew i was allergic to a medication that I would have no need to take again as well as latex. I actually carry an Epi Pen b/c my latex allergy has gotten gradually worse. This most recent reaction was so different though! I don’t really get a rash from latex – my neck gets red, and itches a teeny bit, but not majorly. I notice more tingling in my mouth. So, after making dinner one night, my neck was itchy, but I knew I hadn’t ocme into contact with latex. I didn’t have any tingling, so I just kind of brushed it off. When I woke up, the rash was down both arms, most of my chest, and back. My ears were actually so swollen it hurt to wear my glasses (I wear contacts occasionally), and my eyes just looked puffy. Anyway, it ended up worse and my husband was like, “ef this we’re going to the ER”. We’re still not positive what it was, but both my husband and I suspect it was pine nuts (which SUCKS b/c I put them in so many recipes). I had a reaction to latex a few weeks ago, and my husband was at Crossfit so I popped my Benadryl, waited. Wasn’t getting better, so I used my Epi Pen and called my mom b/c she knows how to distract me. My husband was really great about it, adn seriously, within five minutes of my Epi Pen, i could feel it going away.
