Now in week 61 of 72 and for the first time since beginning tx in 2003, I have some relief. My doc prescribed triamcinolone
acetonide cream usp, 0.1%, which I spread on any affected areas. It's made by fougera & Co in Melville, NY. It worked where nothing else worked for very long. I used to have to take 50 mg atarax to stop the itching, but it knocked me out, which created other problems. I no longer take it, and I'm a little more lucid.
