i read many posts about this. I experience terrible itching in my hands and feet every single day, if didn't take medications for it i would go mad. i couldn't find a clear explanation for it in the threads but today my rheumy said something that could be useful to you too maybe. He said that when i did the lupus band test ( a skin biopsy ) and it came back positive it could maybe explain the itching....in sle it is often found that patients have autoantibodies + c1q, c3 deposits (and so on...) in their skin; this may couse the itching ....since my kidneys also got worse lately he prescribed higher dose of meds and said this should help also with the itching....if it is really the case i'll lat you know
take care
