Severely itching legs! Help! Can't sleep!!!?
I have no skin conditions or diseases. There are no visible bites or rashes on my skin. I'm not using any new soaps/softeners/detergents/lotions, etc. But my legs are itching SO BAD! It's 3:00 in the morning and I just want to go to sleep. I've applied Calagel topical analgesic like 5 times, but it's still not helping! It's really concentrated on my ankles/calves. But my thighs a bit too. Even waist/hips just a tad. I'm scratching myself raw! What is wrong with me?!
Additional Details
Yes. Hydrocortisone did NOTHING. Calagel only works even for a short period of time. Like 2-3 minutes! Also, my sheets, clothes etc. are all clean. So I know it isn't that either.

Eric T
did you try some hydro cortisone? this will relieve the itch til you can figure out what is causing you to itch.


I am always impressed that there is oftentimes some good advice and good links from people helping others through Yahoo_Answers.

Even so, it is more likely than not - that a WRONG medical diagnosis will be made by listening to the advice of novices via Yahoo_Answers.

Sooo I would strongly encourage you to become a ‘good’ diagnostician for yourself, and to also seek out a 'good' doctor or a ‘good’ nurse and s/he will make a medical diagnosis and thoroughly explain the causes preventions and solutions much better than anyone on Yahoo_Answers could do without being able to see you personally.

What you describe is what was happening to me for several weeks, usually the worst was under the covers at night, before it got worse and worse until full blown urticaria was the result for me, simply because I did not know my triggers then. Possibly have become allergic to something and/or might be suffering the symptoms from long term lean micro-nutrition to one's organs - which was the primary cause of my own disease, although I truly hope I can become totally healed of it.

Also, I have been told that for some doctors itching problems is their warning to test an individual for diabetes, since people with diabetes have many more skin conditions than non-diabetics.

Itch and rash problems can be miserable and will always get worse if not resolved, so once again, I would strongly encourage you to see a ‘good’ doctor to learn about what might be the triggers and become a ‘good’ doctor yourself from sites like the following is the best ‘advice’ anyone might give you today. [SEE: <> http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/skin-rash/SN00016 AND http://dermatology.about.com/cs/dermphotos/a/dermgallery.htm <>]

IF you are interested I will share what I have learned from my own and others itch and rash problems with the hope it might help you today or someday in your future.

I have seen them all to be either all nutritional and ‘dryness’ related or partly nutritional and/or viral or bacterial or fungal or parasitical scabies mite etc or an allergic reaction to some things that are toxic in one’s food or air or skin applications or meds. If meds are needed Monostat 7 for yeast infections has worked for me for moist jock itch regions also, since it is the same antifungal that is in most jock itch meds. Also, you will need to change your nutrition in order for the thrush to not return. I would NOT recommend you try the pill meds or treatment drinks that so many snake oil salesmen are selling. I have never seen them work long term and they have always caused even worse allergic reactions for me and others I know.

So some people like myself react allergically to the chlorine or fluoride that is being re-absorbed through the skin after the hot water washes out all the skin oils or to a skin lotion or meds or toxins in one’s foods. In addition to toxins in these things I have also become allergic to the Vitamin Palmitate enrichment within milk products. I suggest organic cow’s milk or organic goat’s milk for babies until they can be weaned to solid food like green beans, lentils, or boiled/de-acidified spinach.

When my liver started to become severely weakened from bad nutrition and too many mineral supplements that were toxic and I never knew it, the first sign was rashes and itchings when I became a little warm under the covers at night, in the backs of my knees and inside the arms that eventually spread to other places.

My own problems with my fragile liver began to become ‘very’ severe after several months of eating considerable nutritional yeast that had much too high of copper %DV's. After having a severe copper taste for several weeks I eventually recognized that the base grains %DV's did not have near as much copper. So I concluded that the super high copper %DV’s was not a non-toxic plant source of copper within the grain, but was a toxic metallic copper from the pots the yeast was brewed inside.

IF I may let me explain further why if I were you I would make the choice to look for "toxic-triggers" and to reduce them in order to allow the skin/organs to become stronger.

In the past I also have had many problems with asthma and with skin rashes and itchings. I have learned that all the things that trigger these problems are very very toxic to everyone's health and I have learned to ‘run’ from them.

I also 'eventually' learned that my micro-nutrition was 25% what it should be, and this allowed me to be so weakened in my purifying organs that I could more easily have an allergic reaction to something that was toxic, simply because my skin and/or lymph and/or kidney and/or liver organs were not strong enough to efficiently deal with the toxins, so the rash/itchings were a continual 'warning' that I needed to improve my organic nutritional choices.

I have since learned that better nutrition will make the skin and 'purifying' organs and entire body stronger in order that they can more easily deal with toxins that we all might have a hard time identifying and running from. (Google browse: “Pellagra-Wikipedia” beriberi scurvy & rickets)

I know this from my own experiences with myself and others since these were also my triggers and when we are all under stress we usually consume-apply things that are more toxic to us, whether alcohol, cigarettes, pharmaceuticals, or eating too many calories or high- glycemic calories from carb-sugar-starches.

Toxins include chlorine and fluoride in the drinking and shower water, or pesticides preservatives nitrates chemicals synthetics or enrichments in foods, or pharmaceuticals you have consumed or applied on your skin, or molds or smoke or aerosols.

It took much research and money and sufferings to learn that all of my triggers were due to poor nutritional choices. My hope is that you will learn from my past experiences for the sake of your future health and longevity and would methodically look for your own triggers and would thoughtfully consider the nutritional component and then make the choices to become stronger.

My best to you,

AI – nutritionist



My own life experiences and from ‘good’ doctors and from sites like the one at <> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formication <> Formication is a antiquated term for itching-pruritus disease that can be caused by several sources.


IF you are interested, I feel I have become a quasi-expert on rashes and pruritus itchings after many years of off and on flare ups. So to do my part to make a difference in the world I now take a little time each week to help others understand why better nutrition is so important, and I have posted much of my own story via the link at: <> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091020155428AAsQsof <>. I hope you will have learned something today from my own mistakes and would not duplicate them. My best to you and yours. AI - nutritionIst – OJT – [(-:]
