    Ok this is driving me insane now. Sometimes lower legs itch in the day but the tops of my legs at night itch so bad I'm making myself bleed....
    Wondered if it was washing packet but nowhere else is itching, just my thighs, shins and calves.
    I can't even take an antihistamine to stop the itching. I always moisturise with double base (for eczema) after bathing and showering. This isn't helping though.

    Any ideas? Or tips for remedies before I have no skin left lol xx

    I'd let your MW know, mine said persistent itching could be a sign of a liver condition that's treatable. x

    Figured out, if I don't put bubble bath in the tub, my legs don't itch! Must have developed sensitivity to it x

    Ugh, pregnancy sensitivity! I have eczema too, is fun having to constantly work out what's the next thing we've become allergic to lol
    Can't wear my silver jewelry anymore, that one was a bugger! ;-)
