Hi, Imhurting, and welcome! As we age, our skin gets drier. This might not have anything to do with fibro. You could check with your doctor or see a dermatologist and they could tell you better what is going on. You could have dermatitis, psoriasis, etc. There are medicated shampoos and the doctor would know what is best for you. Meanwhile, try not to scratch. I know that's easier said than done but I find if I have an itch and start scratching, it itches more! Many times I can ignore it and it will settle down.
I'm so glad you joined us! There is a lot of good info in Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. I do hope you take the time to read it. You just might find things to help you with your pain.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
