I have intense itching on top & sides of shoulders. Had it since April/May after mushroom hunting in woods in IN & MI. Little red marks & swell if scratched. spread from 1-2 bumps to 6-9. worse at night. some problems now with spleen & body seems to try to get rid of poisons/toxins. Some thyroid issues. Dermatologist thought bug bites but not sure without test & weren t actively itching upon appointment. Also get itchy all over including head, but the intense itch is shoulders.

Thanks for posting your querry on HealthcareMagic.

After reading your symptoms, i feel that it is aome kind of an allergic reaction as it is not limited to just shoulders. I would recommend you to take any anti allergic medication for 2-3 days as it may solve your problem. You can also apply calamine lotion topically in the areas of the red marks and aloe vira gel for symptomatic relief.

If your condition does not improve then you must visit your dermatologist and undergo allergy tests or any other tests he deems necessary.

Wish you a speedy recovery.
