I am now itching all over the body. I have psoriasis breakouts on scalp & some patches on the body. So I am hoping it's a  skin &/or allergic kind of reaction rather than the dreaded kidney disease. My phosphorpus levels have always been in the normal range.

Hello Athena and please ask your doctor about this.
I was told once that itching skin may be due to the kidneys not functioning enough anymore and therefore the skin "sweats out" some of the liquid, the kidneys cannot "get rid of". I am not sure whether or not this is true and please ask your doctor/nephrologist about it.
Good luck-wishes from Kristina. :grouphug;

I find that antihistamine (the stuff people with hay fever take) helps quite a bit with itching.

I find that I cannot take antihistamines orally as they cause my bowels to stop working.

I've had itching attacks before that have gone away. I'll have to wait it out. But I will call my Neph tomorrow.

How about taking a shower, not too hot to avoid irritating the skin? Good luck !  :grouphug;

I've popped an anti-histamine pill called Claryntin. Hopefully this will work to stop the crazy itch!
