I am a 42 year-old pale-skinned female in relatively good health. I suffer from season
al allergies and have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis (20+ years ago) which is under con
trol. Almost a year ago I developed an itch near the base of my
neck about the size of a quarter which I dismissed as dry skin. Six mon
ths later, with severe itching on my
scalp and base of neck, I finally decided to see a doctor.
