Thank you all for responses. In the meantime, itching in my arms, neck, legs, etc stopped, but itching, bad rash in my vulval/anal area exploded!!!! Again! This time it wont go away. I have tried everything, different herbal ointments (Chamomile, Calendula, St John's Wort), suppositories, vaginalettes, antihistaminic drugs. I have done the lab tests - it showed no bacteria, no yeast. Hot showers used to help me for a while, now this 'method' is also failing. Doctor warned me to wear cotton underwear only (which i do), avoid colored, perfumed toilet paper, even certain types of pads, to double rinse underwear, not to use to much detergents, etc, etc. Itching/rash began when I was tapering steroids (and finally cut off pronison and entocort) ... Anyway, I will try with homeopathic remedy tomorrow - hope it would help me.
