well, this is weird- becaue my skin ahs been so itchy the past 2 weeks, I scratch & scratch, then get hives! So I bought some itch relief lotion by Curel, used it, it sort of worked... then tried OTC Zyrtec, an indoor/outdoor allergy med that is the best to use for hives. That sort of worked too.. My skin doesn't "look" dry- no scaly flaky patches. And every year when the heat kicks on, right about
now, I tend to get itchy. but I can't help thinking it's sort of related! The skin around the tape edges of my wafers has been itchy like mad, no irritation under the wafer, just right at the tape edges. And it seems to have spread, that itchiness... Whatever! It's always something, eh?
