Itchy, burning skin

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi ladies,

Have any of you experienced having itchy skin in the middle of the night or burn sensations in random areas of your body? For the past two nights I have awakened to a fit of itching and scratching with burning to follow. The itching made me think at times something was crawling on me and had me frantically ripping my covers back to search for some creepy crawly creature. Anyone else get this

    Hello, ha, ha,...yes! Totally! I seriously thought I had fleas recently. But, it is the change of season along with this perimeno junk...our nerve receptors go nuts! I have my bottle of vitamin e oil...I rub that on before bed.

    Oh my God yes!!! And I do the same as you...assume it really is a bug of some sort. 😳 For me this symptom showed up in February...dry n clod here in Chicago. Th hen it progressed to round spots that itched. Since I teach elementary school I thought I had caught a case of ringworm. Turned out I have developed eczema. Never had it before.

    I officially hate perimenopause.

      Oh no, Eczema! I didn't know that you could develop that. I thought you had to have a predisposition to it. Wow! I'm so sorry to hear this. Are you being treated for it? I heard oatmeal based products are good for it
