About 3 months ago, my skin started to become extremely itchy. I changed everything from shampoos, soaps, lotions, to detergents. I also stopped taking in my bcp and vitamin B supplements believing those were the cause of my itch. To this day, I still have the itch. I itch all over the body, from legs, arms, upper body, back, and sometimes my head. I also noticed hives on my face.
immediately stopped taking the vitamin and the rash has not increased....can Vitamin D be causing this kind of rash? could I have a recurrence of pityriasis rosea?
It's a vitamin B deficiency. Start taking B vitamins and your skin will then be able to breath. Let me know how it works out. It worked immediately for me.
There had been a really informative thread here one day about skin & itching, that I cannot locate now, duh...anyway I think it might have been NY Girl (possibly?) discussing with a few others here about the gold bond products & them having a noticable menthol like smell to them. The were so right, I think there were 2 cream choices (packaging 1 green bottle & 1 yellow bottle) but I had taken a lil sniff, so pungent.
My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.
Firstly,It can be due to vit B deficiency. Take some vitamin B complex for some days and see if your symptoms improve. Secondly,it can be due to cheilitis. Avoid licking the lips and around it as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.
I have a SEVERE allergy to Vitamin B -ALL vitamin Bs. My face breaks out in rashes - I get what look like cold sores on my lips - but they aren't...I am in treatment with my Naturopath for this - it is very discerning...
or lice . Tried drinking vinegar and vitamin B COMPLEX as suggested by a pharmacist for only about 3/4 days it was better, but now its back again - itching itching itching P.S. I am a adult lady 45 years - did not reach menopause yet.
I was convinced it was the B vitamins-because it helps to take just a B-12 but to keep the itch GONE (at least for 24hrs) it has to be a prenatal vitamin with iron. Hope this works for you too!
With all the sites out there that have info on Vitamin D, their just doesn't seem to be one that has all the symptoms that can accompany vitamin d deficiency. I'm going to list my symptoms, so that others may have some insight, in layman's terms. I hope anyone else with the deficiency would also post theirs.
Can a Vitamin D deficiency cause this much pain? Went to the doc for muscle pain & weakness with increasing shooting pains to the point of affecting everyday functioning. Blood test came back low in Vitamin D. Result was 11, (should be 26 to 55). Other results OK. Cervical Spine & lower back MRI OK. Treatment is 50,000 units of D per week for 4 weeks and thereafter once a month. Been on it for 4 months. Feel at times like I was in accident.
I don't know if I am affected by the lack of sunlight and coldness (plus the stress of the Christmas season), my itchy joint and skin are acting up. My face feels buring and cracking. When I googled itchy joint, it popped up autoimmune disease. Wow. this is so right on. Whether it is stresses from food, weather, emotion..., our bodies are so sensitive. I hate this. I go for massage once a week, and I find it helps. Thanks for this forum.
Vitamin D is NOT easy to obtain through foods and foods that contain vitamin D are fortified with it. Little exposure to or no exposure to the sun and/or dark skin and being overweight can also be causes for vitamin D deficiencies. Take the prescribed amount and try to get 15-20 mins in the sun/per day if you can. You should notice an improvement probably after a month. You aren't alone. Alot of people are vitamin D deficient and don't know it.
It can be caused by stress, citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables or an impaired immune system and nutritional problems, such as vitamin B-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency. Try to avoid eating spicy or acidic foods during this time. You can use topical ointments like numbing ointments, such as benzocaine, anti-inflammatory (steroid) gels or Benadryl allergy liquid mouthwash.
There are several possibilities that are coming in my mind. Firstly,It can be due to vit B deficiency.Take some vitamin B complex for some days and see if your symptoms improve. Secondly,it can be due to atopic dermatitis or eczema("Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever). Cheilitis(Inflammation of the skin on and around the lips)is often seen in atopic dermatitis.
I don't have dry skin. I can apply a very small amount of any moisturizer and it will not be absorbed. The skin is never red or flaky. The skin rarely itches but stings bad at times. The top of my left foot occasionally feels like someone is using a cutting torch on it. the same feeling happens on my thighs. The skin looks perfect but feels cold to the touch. I had this problem for two and a half years now. Never goes away. I read about B vitamins. You can try taking a B complex.

These are easily covered with foundation so are not a major problem. But now I have found that I have very dry itchy skin round my eyes, cheeks, and on the edge of my scalp / forehead. Also down one arm. Can anyone recommend anythings to help?
i have had red itchy hands for about 3 months. i was getting weekly vitamin b-12/mic shots when it started. i quit getting the shots a month ago but still have the red itchy hands. i haven't changed anything else that i know of. can you help?
Hello, There are two possibilities that are coming in my mind. Firstly,It can be due to vit B deficiency.Take some vitamin B complex for some days and see if your symptoms improve.

Till then, you should take vitamin B complex fro some days because sometimes their deficiency also causes such dryness of lips. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I have similar sounding problem. Very itchy and dry looking skin round the eye area, including the bridge of my nose. One eye is worse than the other. I have tried vaseline, aloe vera gel, even steroid cream which the doc prescribed after diagnosing blepharitis. I don't think it's blepharitis as a lot of the symptoms don't match, eg I don't have crusty or sticky eyes in the morning any more than is normal. Have trawled the net and can't find anything other than an allergic problem.

Cheilitis(Inflammation of the skin on and around the lips)is often seen in atopic dermatitis.Diagnosed by bld test like RAST.Treatment is by topical steroids or oral therapy of corticosteroids in severe cases.
I also tried blowdrying my body (not rubbing the skin with a towel b/c that supposedly irratated the skin and helped to trigger the itch). Then, I also tried to put clothes on immediately following the shower (that helped a little bit, but still, the itch came on). I switched soaps, laundry detergent...everything! Following the research, I read that some doctors gave UV treatments to patients. Well, at my witt's end, I decided to try a tanning bed yesterday.
My skin irritations are fairly symmetric too. how strange. any of you use any products that are useful?

Hi everyone, I've been reading the forum threads - very helpful - but no one has noted my exact problem, which is itchy bumps on the palms of my hands. Not red, or white, they seem to come from within. My Dr. said they are probably not bites, as insects do not break the skin of the palms (too thick), and thinks it might be an allergy (to WHAT???). He gave me some corticosteroid cream (this one has Fluocinonide), but it hasn't helped much yet (have used it for a little over a day).
My skin is itchy, and small flakes only on face, I thought it could be winter skin itch but my head always feels like bugs are in it but there arent any. This is on my face, my chest, my legs, on my eyebrows,my back, sorta all over, but especially on my head and around my eyes.
I also am taking Allegra (type 1), Zantac (type 2 antihistamine), Garlic (500 mg) and Vitamin B. I take these once a day in the morning. I have been told I have eczema. I know what is happening to me is an allergic reaction I'm wondering if it is related to something like the Garlic pills or Vitamin B or something else?
