    Yes, I get that too. It is maddening! I got it once around both of my ankles. Now for about a week, I have been itching like crazy in my scalp, of all places! People must think I have lice. Lol! I wash my hair and it hasn't stopped. It's not an incessant itch, it comes and goes.

    Thanks for your input, so it's not just me but what could be causing it

    Usually pruritis (itching) is a symptom of uncontrolled diabetes, kidney failure. 

    However, I am sure I have none of these illnesses question

    I always suffer with itchy skin in spring an autumn, for me I put it down to the change of weather, but I do also suffer with diabetes but this has only been diagnosed in 2015, my itchy skin started last week... I use lots of moisturiser/body cream/ lotions during these time to try and relieve it not that it always works.  I try also to keep more hydrated than normal and if I dont eat enough veg i think that adds to is also... but thats just me.....

    Good luck Mrs M x
