I had an increase in the Ursofalk earlier this year and since then the itch seems to be worse. I have had two different types of antihistamines before which removed most of the uncontrollable desire to scratch . In an email questionnaire with my surgery, (a different way to have a consultation) the web doctor prescribed the above named anti histamine which does not seem to have made much difference to me although I have only had one tablet so far.
I have a telephone consultation booked with my GP on Tuesday but I have to get through my birthday this weekend where I will be in a lot of company where scratching like I have fleas is not an option!
Any of you kind folk out there got any helpful solutions to get me through the weekend? I exfoliate with rough gloves (love that!) cream my skin and will continue to take tablets.
I know the issue of itching is a problem for many of us but not all - oddly I have also been more tired since the itching but I do not think my sleep at night is badly impacted.
Look forward to your helpful comments. Thank you
