The skin itch is driving me crazy! What can I do?
One of the most serious “side effects” associated with psoriasis is the itch caused by the extensive scaling process of the skin. Histamine is one of the most important agents in itch. The membranes of mast cells when activated by tissue damages and infections produce histamine. Stabilization of the membranes will decrease histamine production during activation of the mast cells by these processes and reduce itch.
