So I've realized that it always starts itching when I pee. Maybe it's my bladder?

Re: tell me I'm not the only one

sounds like the liver not flushing toxins. look into taking some herbs to support liver. nettle, milk thistle, dandelion root, tumeric...

If it keeps happening and no amount of OTC remedies or home remedies are giving you any relief, I'd go see the doctor. Better safe than sorry.
Yep, I had this also. It was horrible. I scratched myself raw.

I had PUPPS (not the same thing, I know) but I scratched myself in my sleep. I used a hair brush when I was awake sometimes. if a rash all over my big pregnant belly wasn't enough, I developed a whole body rash after she was delivered. It was awful.

I get it when I go for a long brisk walk or run. It's unbearable and I can't seem to find a cure.

OMGosh, I had PUPP with my last pregnancy and it was horrible. After I delivered, they put me on steroids to get rid of it. It lasted for weeks and around the same time I developed mastitis which required antibiotics. That got landed me in the ER because apparently I'm now allergic to penicillin. It was a such a mess!

Anyway, I ramble. Back to the original question...yes, I've had the kind of itch you're talking about and it's quite irritating. Mostly on a limb, though, so maybe my arm is going to fall off?
