Hi again folks--well, it's time to ask my annual question. Is there a connection between unexplained itchiness and ADHD? My son likes to scratch all over for several minutes whenever he's presented with a task he doesn't particularly want to do (like practicing a difficult piano piece.) His skin is perfectly clear and he's not on any medication. I tried putting Gold Bond itching powder all over him to try to clear away what I think is a psychosomatic symptom, but that did not work either. I'm tired of sitting there waiting for him to finish scratching when I'm trying to get something done with him. I think he truly does feel itchy--psychosomatic does not mean it's not real. But I need to figure out how to get him to forget about scratching. Kathrine PS. I haven't updated my signature in a while so I don't know what it'll say when I post this. My son has ADHD and is 9 years old now. He is not on any ADHD medication.
