I am a cashier and I have to stand on my feet for eight hours. Usually at work I will get start itching on my back, top of my legs, back of my neck, and my forearms and wrists. Its usually a quick itch that goes and comes back during the day, and I've never been persistently bothered with it. However, today its just been ITCHING LIKE CRAZY! I am literally being driven to the point of madness where the itching will not stop, and its always moving. Ive been trying not to scratch, but it drives me mad and on my legs and back, if I don't itch start twitching or it starts to get painful! I've tried not thinking about it, but when you itch ITS HARD!!! I've tried taking my attention away from it, but that's not worked. I've never had it so bad, and I've not done anything out of the ordinary. My soaps, washing powder are ll the same, not used any lotion, skins not dry, there is no rash except for the eczema on my elbows but that not even itching, its the one spot that isn't. I haven't taken any medication, the only thing I am on is microgynon 30 and I have been off it for 3 days as part of the 7 day break. Only thing is, I haven't had itching like this before. Im hoping its only temporary but I am scratching myself to shreds here!!!!
