I have been itching for some time now. Mostly at night but in the past few months I Notice a peculiar thing. Only my left elbow nad left ankle bone have super rough dry patches that peel and bleed. Since I started noticing this I noticed some purple pea sized dots along my legs. I always am a little dehydrated due to the thyroid. But I think getting fibro with lupus is to blame. I have used all the brands of lotion for itching. I still use Skin So Soft before I step outta of the shower. I just want to stop it so I can get a half decent nights sleep. Im gonna try Zyrtec at night but I am losing my mind.
