Default Extreme itching

My daughter, with suspected RSD, has been having bouts of extreme itchiness on her legs. There is no visible irritation, but it is driving her crazy. Is this a typical symptom? If so, what do you suggest? Haven't had much luck with lotions, but open to advice!

This is something that frustrates me. I have terrible itching on my affected area and it hurts so bad when I try to itch it. No visual irritation, just itchiness. I just try lightly scratching or rub something on it. There may be some cream or anything of the sort, but I don't know about it. Just letting you know your daughter isn't alone. Good luck and best wishes.

I get the itching sometimes. If I rub or "scratch" it, it may swell some, then later it goes away and you wouldn't know it had just been all puffy. It's weird and annoying. I haven't found anything that help, but I try not to scratch it too much...that seems to help mine ease up quicker.

I use a commonly prescribed "Triamcinolone" cream. Stronger than hydrocortisone and works well for me. For itching and other minor skin issues.

Pretty benign drug, most doctors will have no problem prescribing this.
