I am a women, 32 years old. I have itchiness at leg start about one week ago and had visit 2 doctors. Im taken medicine such as cetirizine, anti allergic, vitamins c. antibiotics and also apply sone cream. The itchy areas will become bruises even though I didn’t scratch it. Seems no improvement after taken all these medicines. May I know what is the problem of being itchy non-stop?
