2 years ago
Good evening doc. I'm a 34 year old mother of 3kids. I started having body itches since 1997, that's about 18years now. The itching comes and goes and when I scratch it leaves my skin swollen. The swellings go down after a while. I have been on loratyn and piriton for years. Early this year I did a test for microfilariae which came out positive. I was given a prescription for cenocide for 2 months consecutively. The third month which was September I took 3 tablets of mectizan and was asked to take another dose in march next year. I am still itching though. I saw a physiotherapist who said it might be irregularities with my white blood cells. I honestly need a breakthrough with this itching. Thank you.
