I may be a little farther along than most of you in finding out what is really the problem. Here is what happened to me. I and my identical twin picked some poison ivy. We both got poison ivy. I got it severly with blisters on my hands and itching all over my body. Three doctors, two hydrocortosone shots, and three 12 day courses of prednesone. Poison ivy seems gone, however I and my twin have a hives type of itching with small red bumps that appear randomly over our bodies during various periods of the day - usually under stress, or when the skin is scraped all of a sudden, these really itchy bumps appear. Went to allergist/immunologist. Put on over the counter antihistimines to stop the body's immune response. does not work. Going back to allergist to have globulin levels looked at and see if one of the levels is too high. They will give me a shot of HGG? to boost one. Not sure this is going to work either, will come back and post in 2 to three weeks. Itching drives me nuts.
