What are reasons why my scalp, arms, face & neck are itchy the last couple days?

The only time I remember it being this way I was having an allergic reaction to a med.

I wonder if I was bit by something???

Any ideas?

  • Sounds to me like it could just be because of the dryness. Use head and shoulders for a while (it will remoisturize and take away the itchies), and make sure that you are lotioning your face and arms. You can also take a Benedryl to help with the itching.

    If you notice a rash, go to the Dr. to get it diagnoses and receive a tx plan.

    I totally get you about the sick kids. :( Winter always is very COLORFUL around here.

  • It sounds like you could be reacting to a new facial lotion, shampoo/conditioner, facial soap, laundry detergent, or bleach in your bedsheets . . .
    Have you been using a new brand of any of these products?

  • Dry skin, or perhaps and allergic reaction to something you ate, my SIL developed an allergy to seafood when she was 40, it could also be hives, are you nervous about something?

  • Itchyness can be caused by dry skin. I've found I get super itchy when I first become pregnant. Usually and antihistamine can give you relief.

  • I have to use Head and Shoulders and lotions during the winter every year because the dry air and being stuck inside is awful for my skin. The rest of the year I'm fine.

    I hope you find some relief!

  • I dont think I am nervous in particular about anything but the kids have drove me crazy lately and I am sort of a high strung person.
