Re: sores

Many thanks for your question. I am sorry to hear that you have been troubled by an itchy skin condition. I would recommend seeing your GP for a skin assessment. They can arrange blood tests to look for any metabolic causes of itch (e.g. low iron). They can also prescribe treatment for the itchy sores, and refer you to a dermatologist if more investigations or treatment are required.
