Hi Kez, I find keeping my nails short is my best defense. Apple cider vinegar is also really great with the intense itch.

Michelle what do you do with apple cider vinegar please?

Kez take antihistamine to enable you to sleep.

I do anyway for my asthma but now they have changed me to day time one because it doesn't make any difference at night

Sorry to hear that Kez. My OTC antihistamines work well for me.

Which bit of your skin are you itching most at night Kez? If it is scalp I can really recommend applying oil, it works really well for me for the worst scalp itching...Elsewhere I use Aveeno Cream before bed and it is quite thick and I find it very protecting and soothing.
