Hi, I'm new to this community, but would like to ask a question. I get terrible itching. It's mainly on my lower legs, but also buttocks, arms and shoulders. I thought it was my cancer tablets (which are known for causing itching) so with my oncologists permission, I stopped them for a 4 week period. No change. Then I thought it might be Adcal +D3 as I'd only been taking that for a few weeks, so I stopped that too. I usually take 1 anti histamine a day, but as that didn't solve it either, I increased it to 2 a day. It does seem to have eased off a bit, but I've often wondered if it is a type of skin condition, eczema or psoriasis for example. My lower legs are also quite red (I've ruled out Cellulitis) and where I have scratched, I have what my medics call erythematous legs. Any suggestions as to what is causing the itching?
