@sheetal , if this is a repeat symptom, it could just be a sign that you’re over doing things in some way or another.

Try and rest up and relax and see if it improves…………

Hi Sheetal

Tingling and Itching is a fairly common symptom where MS is concerned. I’ve had serious moments of itching on my shins both pre and post diagnosis.
I was prescribed Fusidic Acid Cream to massage in to the itchy areas to help reduce the itching which it has.

@peterfrancis , it’s strange that the Fusidic Acid Cream gives you relief. The cream is used to treat bacterial infections, whereas the “MS itch” is neuropathic……….

Yeah, sorry I meant to say Dermol 500 Lotion, can be used as a body wash when showering / bathing or as a moisturiser without the use of added water.

Was given both Fusidic Acid Cream and Dermol Lotion at the same time, confusion rembering which is what sometimes, my mistake oops.

@peterfrancis , I’m not even sure why the Dermol 500 should either, as it’s a antimicrobial and emollient.

It may just be the cooling effect that provides the relief, but bear in mind that you are applying other chemicals that are not actually needed.

I assume that this was provided on prescription by a GP that doesn’t quite understand about MS and Neuropathy…………..

I get tingling in my feet after walking sometimes, it generally goes once I’m rested. Is it constant?

The Dermol lotion only works short term, definitely.

I was recommended to try the Dermol lotion by a specialist MS Doctor I saw just after Diagnosis.

@peterfrancis , it sounds like a “distraction therapy”! But, if it works………

Since using Dermol as a Body Wash I have not been anywhere close to as itchy as I was beforehand.

Still get itchy shins and ankles from time to time but nowhere near as angry, so I’d certainly recommend giving it a try.

When this suddenly started (I was on Copaxone), the neuro said it was a new symptom and gave me the option of changing meds. I did this (although the tingling was mild) and moved to fingolimod. As someone else has posted, it tends to come on when I’m tired and it disappears when I’ve recovered. If you’re on meds, it could well be the time to move to the next tier drug, because any new symptom means that there is MS activity. BTW, I still have the tingling with fingolimod but no other new symptoms and my MRI is unchanged. I am told that this means that the drug is working for me and has halted (but not reversed) the MS activity. Glad I made the change.
