Blog: Itch-scratch-rash

Catherine Sleep | 1 July 2003

People lucky enough not to suffer any allergies may sometimes wonder what the fuss is all about. The rise of allergy foods, as exemplified by last week’s news that Tesco is to launch its own-label range of allergy foods, will be some comfort to those who suffer food-related allergies. Some of course can be fatal, for example certain peanut allergies, while many more people suffer from traumatic skin reactions. This triggers an itch-scratch-rash cycle and it can become so severe that it causes sleeplessness, irritability, stress, thickening skin, intense pain and secondary infections. If you want to get an idea of what sufferers go through, visit the link below to watch videos of sufferers of itch as they try to get a good night’s sleep.
