excessive itching

I have been diagnosed with pruritus, which I believe is a fancy word for "excessive itching." He put me on Claritin, but seems like it hasn't done any good. What medication helps relieve itching?

Generalized itching is a sign of the need for detoxification. Your sensory nerves are reacting to a toxic load. Caladryl lotion will treat the symptoms and you can buy it over the counter, but you are probably toxic and need detoxification. This may involve a hidden chronic infection as well. Think cavitations and gut wall infection. You can read about both of these conditions on this web site. Use the "Search this Site" function in the upper left.
