Every time I get a little upset over something I start itching.

It usually is on my back in one spot but when it is really bad My whole body itches.

My restless legs bother me more then also.Plus any little noise.

My skin just itches if my clothes touch me. This is very irritating!

I sometimes have to take a pill to settle my nerves down when it gets this bad and tonight is going to be one of those times.

Between my itching and my ringing hears which sound like bugs singing I am quite a deal.

Do the meds make our ears ring more?

Yes, we are quite a deal, or we have quite a deal...

I think itching is a histamine reaction. We're highly reactive.

I am currently trying to find soothing topicals for the hives I'm going through. Aloe vera gel and K-Y jelly so far are my winners. Looking for any more topicals suggestions...

Ear ringing is due to Lyme irritating the nerves involving hearing, so I understand.

Hello,

I am sorry you are sick. Maybe before long you will be well again. I'll pray for that.

I do not know about itching except the itch I have on my scalp along the nerves involved with this disease. I will try and find more information.

My LLMD said that borreliosis bacteria destroy the wax producing glands in the ear canals, for me this was true I had not had any wax in left ear for a
long time but didn't know why.

He said for dry ear canals,itching,pain,hearing,and tinnitus (noises: ringing or buzzing) :

Try sweet oil (olive oil). Lay on your side and put about four drops in your ear canal. After a minute turn over and let the ear drain and put four drops in the other ear canal then let it drain also. Do this about once a week.

I hope this helps.

God Bless,

Sherry [Smile]

Yes, yes and yes again! I go through this periodically and my LLMD has yet to figure out why. Is a a die-off? Is it a build up of the abx? Is it a yeast die-off?

I use Cetaphil cream, and also prescription Lotrisone when it gets too bad, and usually have to stop my meds until it clears up. I also take attarax.

Examine your DIET!!!!! Are you eating any white foods?? Sugar?? Heavy on the potatoes and other carbs??

Could very well be the yeast. If I have yeast, I find that I have the restless legs thing at night. It's always a clue that my diet had better get shaped up!!

Have you told your LLMD about the itching?? You don't want to overlook the possibility of an allergic reaction to the meds.

Candida diet and elimination:

Lyme symptoms list compared with yeast symptoms
http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/Forum1/HTML/021202.html

"Successful control and elminiation of a Candida Albicans overgrowth requires a multifaceted program as described below. Failure to follow ALL the steps simultaneously will result in slow progress and will lengthen healing time significantly. The program should be tailored to the individual and must balance the need to eliminate the Candida and deprive it of its food source while insuring proper nutrition for the individual."

Five Steps to Candida Elimination:

1. You must starve it into submission by eliminating its food source.

2. You must kill it with anti-fungal herbs and supplements.
[e.g....garlic, onion, caprylic acid, Pau D'Arco capsules or tea, clove, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf extract, oil of oregano, tea tree oil, Echinacea, Goldenseal, black walnut, MSM, barberry root, uva ursi, neem leaf, biotin]

3. You must reestablish the proper balance and quantity of probiotic bacteria in the digestive tract. [...multi-strain lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus capsules with FOS should be taken between meals to maximize repopulation of the digestive tract by beneficial bacteria.]

4. You must reestablish proper levels of all B vitamins (yeast free) and utilize other immune enhancing supplements to boost immune system function. [e.g ... B complex vitamins (yeast free), biotin, beta 1-3 glucan, colostrum, maitake mushroom, vitamins A, C, E, zinc and selenium]

5. You must cleanse and heal the digestive tract to promote proper elimination of toxins and Candida and assimilation of nutrients. [e.g...chlorophyll, MSM, omega 3 fatty acids found in flax seed and salmon oils, GLA found in borage, evening primrose and black currant oils. Pantothenic acid, digestive enzymes between meals]

May be an allergic reaction? To the antibiotic you are on? Or, as others here have suggested, foods?

I used to itch all the time and get hives until I changed to a laundry detergent that is free of scent and dyes.
