Does anyone have itching but no rash? I take Plaquenil for my psoriatic athritis.

I have uncontrollable itching especially after i shower but no rash. I also take Plaquenil and didn’t know if that could be causing it

I grind oatmeal into powder and put it in a warm (not hot) bath, soaking, and bathing, then I rinse off in the shower, and I use a product that is like a hair conditioner, only for your skin. You smear it all over, then rinse off. That stops my itching. I hope someone else can find relief with this cheap remedy. I find that steel cut oatmeal works better than instant oatmeal, and is usually cheaper. You can buy it in bulk at some natural food stores. You can get the rinse off skin conditioner anywhere that sells body wash and shampoo.

You could try moisturizing more and see if that helps. I have a lot of pain on my scalp but no obvious psoriasis there. The pain is worse in the winter when the air is dry. I think it must be some kind of inflammation. the best test would be to moisturize part of your body and see if the itching goes away.

You should ask your doctor. You could try an allergy medication for it. Hope you get some relief soon.
