Hi
My husband suffers with itching, particularly at night, as he has very limited use his arms it drives him crazy because he cannot scratch.
I use diprobase after his shower and Hydracortesone for any inflammed area's but it hasn't helped a great deal. Have changed washing powder and shower gels. We have also tried nytol and antihistamines without success. He is not sleeping well because of this, and he also worries about disturbing me as I have to get up at 4am for work, I wonder if anyone else have this problem ? If so how do you get round it.

Those products are quite 'oily', and will sit on the skin - why not try a lighter lotion, which should soak in, Might help!

Thanks, will give a try. Though to be honest I am not sure if my husband does itch or whether its physcosymatic.Either way it drives him nuts bless him.
