For about 4 weeks I have had intensly itchy forearms and all

Customer Question

For about 4 weeks I have had intensly itchy forearms and all around the lower part of my legs. There are also other spots around my hips. There is also a strange scratchy feeling generally. The itchy areas are also quite inflamed. There are no swellings or lumps although there are scattered red spots. I have not been handling animals, chemicals etc and only everyday soaps and cleaning products that have not caused problems before. Neither have I changed my diet in anyway or been overseas. I cannot see any mites or fleas around the house and there are no midges or such about at this time - in any event I do not attract midge bites.

Hello from JA
thanks for the question.

So let me clarify

Is there really a rash, or mainly spots from scratching?
