ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
The pain and scratching is unbearable. I am scratching in my sleep and I have tried wearing gloves to bed. When it gets worse I cannot do simple housework like doing dishes and cleaning the bathroom. I have tried creams and lotions and medication and nothing works. Some days I cannot close my hands because it's too painful. Wearing gloves to clean does not help. Some gloves make the itching worse. My family is fully aware of my condition. Now my coworkers have noticed that I am scratching my hands as well. I have visited my primary dr and dermatologist on several occasions to no avail
