Jun 21, 2017 · Itchy skin in Kidney & Bladder

Diane~I went to a dermatologist at Mayo. I too have had this itching for many years. In the past I have tried many creams of which none have worked. It feels like my nerves are on fire. I have to use ice packs to get relief. This visit I was offered a prescription for the compounded cream of amitriptyline, ketamine in vanicream. Mayo Pharmacy filled this. It is not covered by insurance. It cost me over $150. I was so desperate for relief I paid the price. Another suggestion from the doctor was to take Zyrtec daily and lastly put moisturizer on and cover it with a wet cotton shirt. The creams she thought best are Vanicream, Cetaphil and Cerave. My upper back and shoulders also are scarred up from scratching. It is like you become possessed and cannot stop scratching and it just gets worse. The diagnosis was Pityrosporium Follicutitis and neurogenic dermatitis. I hope this is helpful in finding you some relief.

I do not remember any breathing difficulty nor coughing due to cold foods and drinks.

I have had two molar pregnancies a long time ago. The 2nd one metastasized to my lung which required chemotherapy. I was treated at Mayo MN. Be vigilant with her care. If you have questions I would be fine with talking further about my experience.
