Yep. Been there. Done that. In fact, this was one of the things I used to deal with at least weekly. Mine often started in the groin area, then traveled around between my butt cheek, and thigh. I have only had this a time or two in the last two years though (since my turn around) and even those X's were not as intense as they used to be.
The thing that trips me out the most about this one, is that as sensitive as the skin gets, wouldn't you think it would get red, or irritated looking ? But nope. Looks fine. Just irritating as $%#$ !
Speaking of skin issues with FM, how about ridiculously severe itching ? I used to get a strip across my belly that would itch so bad, I couldn't hardly function..... My scalp too (but no dandruff) Then, about 3 X's (from say 5 to 2 years ago) years, my left elbow started itching so bad, I scratched the skin off of it. No bites. Heck, no rash either, until after I scratched the heck out of it.
