Severe Itching with very mild rashes

VictorOlivier profile image


I’m experiencing severe itching all over the body with very small pimples, it started two weeks ago.

What could that be?

I’m taking an anti-histamine pill at night to try to sleep, but it doesn’t work.

Thank you.

Are you taking any new medication which may have caused this? Likewise have you changed soaps or washing powders etc? Or got a new household pet?

Wonder if the previous resident had cats / dogs / rodents?

Hi I have the same very severe itching all over my body driving me crazy had a liver function test that seems okay as it can indicate liver problem worth checking I’m taking antihistamine tablet like you plus Audavate ointment which is a big help. Prescription only so you will need to contact yiur GP. it’s. Impossible to avoid scratching which will reduce inflammation so much good luck. Max Headroom

Have you tried consulting a doctor. This forum cannot diagnose the cause of your skin problem.

A dispersed rash with itching all over your body can be a sign of serious illness. Please see your doctor for a proper diagnosis.
