Moisturizer: You may just have dry skin which can be helped by applying moisturizer on your skin within 3 mins after bathing and again about 12 hrs later +/- bathing. Avoid antibacterial and scented soap. If this still does not help, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Dermatographism: Your condition sounds like dermatographism. This is a type of urticaria (hives). It normally resolves in a few months, but some patients may persists with symptoms for years. Treatment with anti-histamines like zyrtec or Allegra are usually very effective.

Chronic fatigue: Chronic fatigue can arise from many sources - not the least of which is not sleeping soundly. Have your doctor refer you for a sleep study. If that turns out OK a consult with a neurologist will evaluate your abnormal (weak) gait would be my next choice for you. ...Read more

ITCHY ELBOWS?: HOW LONG HAVE THEY BEEN ITCHY? SOUNDS LIKE A CONTACT DERMATITIS FROM SOMETHING YOU HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH. THINK HARD WHAT YOU WERE DOING JUST BEFORE THE ITCHING BEGAN . . . IT DOESNT SOUND SERIOUS OR CONTAGIOUS. SEE YOUR PCP OR A DERMATOLOGIST TO RELIEVE YOUR WORRY. BEST LUCK. ...Read more
