Hi @rascal1, I think @rosemarya is right that a check in with your doctor might be in order. I did find a couple of references that may provide more information for you here:
Relief from Persistent Itching and Scratching
Harvard Medical School symptom checker – Itching Without Rash
Hope this helps.
Thank you . I’m going to investigate your references!
No new detergents or foods, etc. I’m now washing everything in hot water and double rinse even though it doesn’t seem like parasites, etc
Saw a dermatologist who had no explanation why scalp itched so much and itchy spots alll over body with absolutely no rash. He did a skin culture from between my fingers, suggested shampoo, body wash and body lotion and med for itch.
It’s been only one day and slightly better . I won’t have results for 2-3 weeks. Said it can be an underlying problem like thyroid, diabetes, weakened immune system , etc
Thank you John ! I’m going to look into your references. The best to you. !
I just started a new group on "Morgellons and Other Parasites. Mine also started with my scalp after a haircut in a salon 2+ years ago. I'm posting pictures I've been taking from my experience. I'm also keeping specimens in Ziploc bags. The only way I actually could see something was wrong was by taking pictures with my camera phone, but you HAVE TO TURN THE FLASH ON or you cannot see anything. Just a suggestion. When something kept biting me, I wanted to see what it was.
@rascal1, Have you by any chance, added any different foods to your diet recently? I ask because I discovered that when I eat fresh strawberries (which I love) or fresh pineapple I can be assured of itching for several days afterward.
You have not mentioned any underlying medical concerns or medications. These things can also be responsible for the itching, so I think that a check in with your doctor might be in order.
