Hives on arms, itching between knees and ankles, CLL and pain from degenerative cervical bones. On Oxycodone, Bp and anti depressant medicines. Cause?

I had hives on my arms. My doctor stopped the morphine sulfate I was taking. My arms are better but I have the same intense, wake me up at night itch between my knee and ankle. I have CLL and pain from degenerative cervical bones. I take Oxycodone 10mg x 4 daily, with anti depressives, soma, clonidine for blood pressure. I do not see the same hive bumps on my legs but I am scratching them raw. Rubbing alc does give some relief for short periods , two to 3 hours? Any ideas?

Hi there. Any one of the medications you are using may be the culprit. It may be unrelated & related to some food/colouring agents. Morphine has long been implicated as a major cause of similar lesions. It's good you stopped it. One can only ascertain on the ground (treating physician). To improve your Quality of life, topical mid potency steroids may be the way forward couple with some non-sedative antihistamine. Hope this helps. Cheers & God luck!
