    It really sounds more like an allergy. Did you start using a different detergent on your linens? Could there be a new mold growth in the house?
    Sometimes we do get histamine releases that can cause skin allergies and itching. I use to get them so bad my blood vessels would burst and I'd have huge black spots all over my back and thighs. Doc put me on sinequan cause he said it helps with sleep and has strong antihistimine effects. My problems stopped with that medication.

    I hope you find an answer to why this is happening to you. Hugs, MicheleK

    I'm doing 50mg now, will double it and see what happens. My eyes have been so watery lately, and last week I gave MYSELF a beauty of a shiner just by wiping my eyes with a tissue! I've got an air purifier going 24/7 and this summer, it's done nothing but rain, so I don't think it's allergies, but with this DD, who knows?

    Soft hugs,
