    You know you have those times when levels go haywire through illness food etc. you get those itching driving you mad!? Mine front legs.!, grrrrr
    We'll I tried something it's worked for me and not medical proven but try and see what you think? Damp the area with water and smooth in tooth paste yea tooth paste! It's warm to start with but it's stopped lol.
    I tried the old wife's tale about toothpaste for spots on face and yea that worked so I thought why not!! I use. A men's face scrub so I usual mix both together and it's like a warm relaxing minty spa massage lol
