Buyer beware.

I have had an itch on my arms for the last 20 years+. Ten years ago, I went to a dermatologist and after many questions, he deduced that I couldn't handle the stress of my divorce ten or so years prior, so my brain told my body to deal with the stress, which came out in the nerve endings in my arms.

My arms itched uncontrollably. It felt like something was crawling under my skin. I would bloody the sheets in the night even, from my scratching.

He told me that he could help me but that the brain unfortunately cannot tell the body when it's help in dealing with stress is no longer needed and that I might be on the drugs for the rest of my life. He prescribed 3-25mg. Hydroxizine 1-20 mg. Zyrtec (it was still a prescription then) Fluocinonide cream.

All of these meds promoted drowsiness so I took them at night, and the cream thinned the skin, so if I itched too much, blood would appear just under the skin, or actually come through. It really helped with the itch, but it never completely went away.

Last spring, my husband and I went away over night. He wanted to stay an extra day. I had only brought enough pills for the one day, and resigned to the fact that I would be in an itching frenzy all the next day. Occasionally, I had tried to wean myself off the pills just to itch terribly all over again.

I awoke the 2nd morning to no itching. And I didn't itch all day! I had been using Young Living oils for two weeks, and wondered then if the oils I had been using were helping. So I went to bed that night to awake to no itching again, or itch the rest of that day! I haven't taken my pills and don't use the cream anymore either!
