Itching skin

Hi, I'm Susan E R.

I have Multiple Myeloma (currently in remission). I have periodic episodes of intensely itchy areas primarily on my abdomen with no discernible rash, just redness. It goes on for weeks, if not months, and is very difficult to ignore due to how extremely itchy it is. I have tried numerous OTC treatments with no real relief. This started before I was diagnosed but I most likely had MM years before I got a diagnosis. Does anyone else experience this?

Hi, I'm Erin F.

Before I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma I had severe itchy skin all over, head to toe, which nothing would help. Have you been tested lately? Its definitely a sign of cancer….at least it was for me.

Hi, I'm Carol F.

Simultaneous to diagnosis, I ended up in urgent care with a diagnosis of eczema and simultaneous to that I got athletes feet. Internist was worthless and did not look at overall story. Now, I am very much my own advocate.
