Itching in legs!!!
Hello, I am having severe itching on my legs. It itches on the upper and lower, front and back. It itches only on my legs and nowhere else. It is so bad that sometimes i scratch so bad that I bleed. I have no discolor of skin before I itch but after it causes little red bumps. It has been this way for about 7 months. I am only 31 and I don't want this to stay this way. I have changed my soap, lotion, clothes wash, sheets, shampoo, everything I could think of. Please help me!!! Thanks!
@ylin-1 Hello, You have changed your soap, lotion, and sheets. However, other causes of irritation include allergies to the dye in your jeans, the material of your pantyhose, allergies to the wax/shaving cream you use on your legs, etc. Certain systemic diseases can also lead to itchiness. You should be evaluated by your physician for liver disease as a buildup of bilirubin can lead to itchiness. Thyroid disease can also lead to itching. In addition, renal failure can lead to itching as well. You should visit your physician or an allergist to determine the cause of your pruritis. A physical exam and bloodwork are essential for diagnosing your condition. Thanks!
