i too get that horrible itch every year from july to november. i've been to a skin doctor who sent me to an allergist. noone knows what is causing it. altho, a prescription allergy pill such as zyrtec helps keep it under control. ask your husband if it feels like tiny electrodes zapping him. also feels like sudden sharp zapping. if you find out what makes it go away let me know. i also have fibro but don't know if there is a connection. Thanks.
