      Made an appt w/a Dr 2 see if they can help relieve the UNBEARABLE itching.Instead of getting the Dr, I met with the PA who gave me a BLANK stare and said all that could be done was give me a light treatment that wouldn't help.I tried it anyway because I needed 2 do something.She then gave me a Rx for blood work for a couple of tests & when I went to go get them done I was told the tests weren't done anymore for years!I got no relief & completely wasted my time. Wouldn't recommend 4 chronic itch
