      I start itching and can't stop normally my feet, hands and back. I also get blisters on my back which are not painful but they do itch.

      Hi. I get prickling/stinging (not an itch) on my arms, legs, chest... feels like a billion teeny red ants stinging me. It seems to start randomly, maybe once or twice a week and typically lasts about an hour or two... it makes me completely crazy! Nothing topical stops it, oral antihistamines do nothing, I believe it's neurological. Perhaps Gabapentin would help and my PCP did prescribe it, but I want to avoid the side effects that come with using it. The only relief is if I constantly rub the area, which ultimately breaks my skin. 😥

          @KatsKickingIt that sucks. Do you experience side effects from the Gabapentin? How long have you taken it?

        @Purplemoonchild Gabapentin and my Dr prescribed a lotion. I will get name and update tonight.

      I have Lupus, RA, and Sjogren's. I usually break out in rash on my legs and buttocks when in a flare up which can be painful.

        @KatsKickingIt wow! All 3 of those? How did they DX you?

      I have lupus, and skin issues are one of my main symptoms. I have a pretty constant butterfly rash on my face, and my pale skin always had red patches.
