My body started itching and had a bad stomach pain, then diagnosed with gastritis. Is gastritis and itching on my body connected?

    I'm interested in this discussion as I too have excess acid issues plus I come out in itchy hives, mostly on my arms. I wondered if there was a connection with histamine?

    Hi Linda,

    My gastritis is kicking back up due to a lot more alcohol intake lately, and I havent been taking my prilosec. The worse the pain in my stomach has gotten (assuming my gastritis is acting up) the more itching I get. it's usually on my arms, head, and legs. Glad to read that others experience this as well. i'll be hopping back on prilosec, tuning the diet, and cutting the alcohol, i'll see if that helps.

    I also had bites and still have itching. I was recently diagnosed with gastritis. I've been treating myself and my home for every type of mite imaginable. I stumbled upon this post and was shocked to see that someone else has associated this with actual bites in their description. I've taken care of the bites, but I still itch. I know it's been years, but I was wondering if you had any resolution?

    Hi Adelle,

    I know you put up the above post 4 years ago but can I ask you are you still having itching on your body and was it linked to your diagnosis of gastritis?

    I was diagnosed with mild gastritis a year ago and still get a terrible itch all over my body.
