    Hello, I seen a doctor today over severe skin itch with no signs of any type of rash, he said it was possibly due to stress and it is sort of a hive reaction. I also got seen today because of inflammation of the stomach lining causing me nausea and all sort of problems over the last week I have also had bronchitis the doctor believes this all due to stress. However I did not see a description of skin itch/burn on the list. I have not been around anything new that I could be allergic too. I am taking Benedaryl and Prednisone at this time for the itch. What exactly is this? I have had a lot of skin related problems over the last 2 -3 years.
