Itchy skin

Posted , 5 users are following.

Has anyone got a solution for itchy skin associated with hormone fluctuation. My arms particularly my left arm is itchy/prickly constantly. I do have other peri symptoms but this is an odd one?? Moisturizing hasn't helped at all.

    I was terribly itchy for a year...every where!  But especially my calves and breasts.  Putting a cup or two of vinegar in my bathwater and soaking brought relief, and so did putting oatmeal in a sock and having bath with that as a washcloth.  It gets really gooey and you wash your itches away with the goo.  Don't rinse.  

    Hopefully one of those helps you

    I have itchy skin all over, my arms being the worst and prickly as you've described it drives me nuts at times, I take antihistimine when its really bad and use olive oil after a shower and before bed, although greasy until it sinks in it has helped with mine, also eat oily fish and wholegrain nuts a few times a week im sure this has helped me x
