My skin is so itchy still! No rash at all. Please advice needed!?

I have been itchy now for 5/6 days.

I have been given steroids and a strong antihistamine to make the itching go away. It has calmed it down but it hasn’t completely gone.

I have had blood tests and no issues with them at all!

I also had my contraceptive implant taken out yesterday as a rare side effect can be itching.

Can anyone give me any light on how long this will last and what it is!

It’s driving me mad!

    You need to soak in a bath of warm water with a couple of cups of vinegar in it. This will neutralize the histamine in your skin.

    the Contraceptive implant caused it. But note that the hormones cause the gut flora to mutate, and this can irritate your immune system.

      So I got the implant out on Friday!

      The itching has calmed down however it hasn't gone completely and is still very irritating....

      What do I do?

      How long do you think it will take before I return to normal! It is very distressing
