Comments

Hi, I am very upset to know that many clinicians, especially in ACT,  regard fibromyalgia as imaginary.   Since developing  fibromyalgia, I was forced to sell my home and leave my position  as a social worker in Sydney and move to Canberra where I live in a caravan in my son's backyard.

I regularly experience an outbreak of an intensely  itchy rash on my legs.  The itching is so severe that it interferes with my sleep, and my legs appear to be scarred from the severe scratching it causes. I have tried all sorts of creams, from naturopathic creams to anti histamines and anti inflammatories,anti fungals, etc.  Nothing has had a lasting effect. 

 

Is there any help for this itching?

Regards, Marlene Rosette.
