I have CLL with itching (pruritus), which was extremely severe at onset, but continued at a lower level after chemo therapy. Antihistamines are totally useless in treating it. Does anyone else have this complication, and if so, had a treatment that controlled it? Thanks.

I am in W and W and am really suffering from pruritus [itching]. I've seen a many specialist (derm, chiro, allergist, family physician, accupunture, etc.) and no one is able to relieve it. I scratch myself raw -

I am anxious for treatment just for some relief from this.
