the itching and the start of relvar do not coincide

Itching that you are having is most likely due to allergy.Your body must have reacted to something.The other possibility is that of scabies particularly if you have a skin rash as well.For the itching, you will require something stronger like prednisolone if benadryl has not worked and for that you would need to consult your GP as this is a prescription drug.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me when you are done.Kindest regards
