What a wonderfully supportive husband you are. This forum is a good place to be. I've had severe itching for years and I recently learned what works best for me. I read about
it in a book titled The Highly Sensative Person's Survival Guide. The product that is suppose to help burning and itching is sesame oil, not the kind that's used for cooking but an organic product used for massage that can be purchased at health food stores or online. It has a pleasant smell and it helps!
What has also helped me too is my bamboo sheets, wearing clothing that doesn't itch, Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent and a bath soap for sensitive skin. I buy the Walmart brand called Equate body wash.
Fibromyalgia, CFS, MCS, scoleosis, herniated disks, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, sjorgens, sleep apnea, asthma, allergies, headaches. On a regiment of different supplements including sleep supplements. I eat nutritiously and do not eat foods I'm sensitive to and ever since a back injury triggered my fibromyalgia, I have been doing prescribed stretches twice daily.
