Itchy Legs

I have been suffering for 2 weeks now with incredibly itchy legs. Only on my shins, both legs. I scratch myself raw. I have tried the usual allergy medicine, I has used a decent moisturizer.

I have not changed to washing powder or bath soaps etc. I dont go in the sun.

Please advise.

Hallo Itchy Mommy
Do you have red rash on your legs? If so you may have a folliculitis and may need cortisone medication ( you will need a prescription) Other reasons for itchy skin could be allergy, dry skin, eczema or jaundice.

Dr, for the past three year I have been experiencing itchiness on the outside part of both my legs and this happens either a week before my periods or just after my period. I have never been to a doctor because I believe so much in prayer and God' s power to heal.

Can you tell me what causes the rash and why do they only reappear during this period of time??

Many Thank

FS

Are you using any lotion and creams on your legs. I normally get very itch legs if I use Johnson and Johnson creams and it' s worse if I shave and put cream on.
