Extremely itchy face driving me crazy!!
« on: January 11, 2021, 09:24:17 PM »
Hi all,

Im back & i should have asked about this here long time ago...i been suffering from a severely itchy face for about 2 yrs now..its gotten worse  gradually over time..it gets extremely worse at night...i end up putting cold water over my face to cool it down...i go through this several times a day!!! And boy does the itching drive me crazy!! It itches all up into my hairline too!

No reasonable answer from any derm, of course! Not a single doc has an answer for me. They give me lotion or benadryl..

My facial skin is not dry, im an oily type..so it can't be dryness doing this...

And i itch all over my body too esp at night...but its not bad as my face..

Anyone here go thru this?? Is it sjogrens?

Face only?? I am itchy all over. I also have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, however.

Maybe your diet has something to do with it?

No opiates...i take certain pain meds sometimes but its not a daily thing cuz ive got gastritis & other GI issues...as of now i haven't taken for several months cuz of stomach issues ...
