My Mum is 79 & has insane itching on back, arms & is scratching herself to pieces & fluid retention


She has developed the fluid retention and puffiness in her feet and the bags under her eyes have filled with fluid also. She does not have scabies so we can rule that one out. No creams are helping. She has been on quite a bit of medication for a long time now, I am desperate for an answer as she is making big craters in her back with the scratching.She has just started on a new painkiller called Oxcontanin 10mg twice daily and has just started taking antihystamines for the itchyness. Please help, thanks.
