Patient :I am healthy 50 year old woman. I do not drink, smoke, use drugs. Quite boring. I started itching December 24 on my chest. It spread to my arms legs, and back. Long story short, by end of February i could not stand it and went to the E.R. They gave me a steroid and anti itch pills. Things were better for a week. It came back. I have been under a lot of stress. I dont sleep more than 3 hours a night, and in general...I'M A MESS! It gets worse when i stress out, and as a redhead..I'm a short tempered, easily rattled spaz! Please dont tell me to take a yoga class, or to just "relax ". These welts are horrible, and the itching is driving me insane. Help please. Colleen Wheeler
