I am not sure if this is the place to ask this, but a friend of mine is
desperate for help.  She has polycythemia vera (overabundance of red
blood cells) and is tormented by constant itching.  She has consulted
doctors and tried many anti-itch products without relief, including
Atarax, Benedrya, Benzocane, Cimetidine, Hydroxy urea, and steroid
creams).  Ice backs help a little but still do not relieve most of the
itching.  If anyone can sugges any treatment that might help, PLEASE
let me know.  Thank you very much.
