as it says... I am itchy - arms, legs, head, face... no rash or bumps, boils or temperature.

So whats the prognosis - fleas or chicken pox?

Have you recently stopped taking anthistamines? DS has been itchy all over for a fortnight, and apparently some antihistamines can do that to you when you come off them.

Are you or have been feeling stressed lately? It's just I think if I feel quite stressed I get itchy patches. There is a name for it but I can't remember at present. it can be anxiety related to.
