    Singer- I experienced horrible itching while healing. My sores had been healed for days and I had bad itching for about a week. It was terrible, so I believe it is normal.

    It's now been 7 weeks since I was diagnosed. After I was totally healed up I itched like crazy, keeping me up at night. It never bothered me during the day. After reading on here I found out that things you eat can trigger it. I found that if I eat peanut butter or chocolate, that I itch. Just last night I was itching again and I remembered that I had eaten some chocolate yesterday afternoon. Those are the only two things that I personally have found trigger the itch.
