    I've read and answered a few posts recently on what to take to relieve itching but I'm wondering if anyone know what causes this.

    I can go days without itching then it starts, it can be in one place or it can move around. Antihistamines help but I'm wondering why it's happening in the first place.

    Thanks

    are you taking any new meds that could be causing it?

    no new meds but I've just realised that I put Comfort on some of my clothes, not my underwear as I have a definite reaction to that. I bet thats what it is.

    New Medication is one thing some people with itching could consider.

    I'll leave this post a bit in case anyone has ideas that others could use.

    Thanks

    I have wondered if changes in the weather are my cause. I tend to get dry/itchy in the winter more so than in the spring & summer. It is already happening.

    Tonakay, the Comfort is a conditioner you put in your wash, it's UK, you will use other kinds in States

    Sam - that's terrible for you, just shows you how easy it is to contract these things. I have a scalp condition, I suppose its a seborrhea thing but docs say they dont know, as usual. Had it so long, I'm used to it now. I'll check out that cream you get and see if we get it here. Thanks.

    Baileys-mum - that could be me because it's only started recently and if it was clothes conditioner I'd have had it in summer.

    thanks
