That's exactly it. Severe itching especially on the arms, shoulders and upper back. I, too have bumps thatappear like skin eruptions. Again, I too scratch (usually) until I bleed. Almost feels like thousands of pins sticking in me. I have tried benadryl, didn't phase it at all. I get some relief from Aveeno cream with menthol. The itching seems to be worse in the evening and keeps me awake too. Anyone else who has suggestions on how to cope with this, please post. Thanks again Crissie!
