Itchy Skin - Advice????

Lately my neck and side of my lower face (jaw area) is itching like hell! I wake up to red marks on my neck and face :( Then it itches more!

I have found when I use vaseline it will make the itch stop and red go away....

Anyone know what causes this? Any fix to make it go away?

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

Sounds like you have an allergy to something. Take some allergy medicine And use anti itch cream

I really wouldn't suggest using Vaseline. Try coconut oil. It will soothe and hydrate without clogging pores or causing further irritation.

Well I know I have allergies but nothing seems to relieve the problem... I have tried all over the counter and my nose still runs... sometimes like facuet mostly at school.

This past semster I started getting itchy skin, I wanted to believe from stress from school. Maybe it is but I dont think so. It just wont stop keeps itching....

I have tried some of the anti itch (benedryl) they did not work but the ones made for eczema do.... but its temporary.... I have to apply it every day, two times a day.

Most likely allergies or insect bites.  Have you changed detergents, lotions, body/facial wash lately?  Are there any bumps, patches, scaliness, dryness, oozing?  Anything that resembles an insect bite perhaps?  Have you tried an antihistamine for a week or two to see if the itch goes away?

Well I dont use it every day I did try it a few times see if it worked and it did. I been using cream for eczema and it seems to be working IF I apply it two times a day.

My friend is having this very same issue.  Her dermatologist says it is a stress rash.  Who knew?
