I think my problem is similar. It never used to happen in bed so much though, but when it did happen I had full body itching along with a light red tone to go with it. Mine happens usually when I'm around some sort of heat source, or when my body temp raises. I found that my CD symptoms have a relation to it. When I went on 20 mg Prednisone, it was enough to end my CD symptoms, and shortly thereafter the itching stopped as well. Now that I'm on 5 mgs and symptoms are starting to come back, the itchiness is back, but it isn't so bad yet. I take a Zyrtec everyday in the morning in hopes that it will help.
