Hello everyone!
Thank you for letting me to join this forum. I have a question. I have found that doing Kratom makes me very itchy. I have been using two different Maeng Da strains. One green and one red. At first the green strain didn't make me itchy but it does now. I love the calming effect of Kratom but the recent itching is horrible! Are there any strains that will not make me so itchy? Is this normal? I have been taking 25 to 50mg of Benadryl to help but it Is not working.

I found that it will make you itch when you first start taking it but it will go away with the more you use. Similar to opoids they make my face itch when I have used them.

I got itchy as well when started...After a VERY bad allergic response to cannabis I was worried that i was also allergic to Kratom.

But with better hydration and continued use and it went away. You might want to drop the dose down a bit and start hydrating yourself and see how it goes.

Because it is not an allergic reaction anti-histamines will not help.

Unfortunately a small, or large, side affect when our tolerance is low. Opiods/Opiates did the same thing to me. Detox, Rehab, a lot of time + $$$ got me clean, but my pain came back as I am an ex-hockey player and my ankle, hip, and shoulders kill me on a daily basis... I've had some really strong strains that made me itchy, but it eventually goes away...

As they say when you have chicken pox, DON'T SCRATCH! hehe... I remember when I was really in a bad place and doing things I regret, scratching myself crazy... I remember family members asking me why the hell my forehead and face was scratched up.. it was embarrassing. It eventually goes away, one thing I can say is though, if you are itchy.. you got some good stuff heh. But yeah it sucks, but do not worry it goes away....

Peri menopause made me itch for 2 months and then just stopped. Check your ovaries for eggs, haha
I sympathize with the itching. Let us know when it stops

YES..Itching is an identified side effect of opiates...ALWAYS listed on the list of side effects on the literature dispensed by the pharmacist when you get your prescription.

I thought the itching was coming from the opiate BUT turned out it was the blue dye in the pills...switching to a white pill stopped the itching almost immediately...so even though opiates can cause itching there are other things that cause itching too...like the food dyes used in many, many pills.

Itching from Kratom went away with continued use and attention to hydration.

Hmmm I never heard about the colors and dies having that affect, good to know.

And yes hydration is HUGE! I know a lot of people tend to get forgetful or not know, or care, but you absolutely need to get some clear fluids in you.. just to get everything circulating, plus so you don't get "backed up"... and you can flush it out quicker. But do not over-hydrate, you will become cramped, uncomfortable, and I don't care or know why people say drink like 10 glasses of water a day, I am a big guy and I need hydrated as much as possible in my line of work.. especially during the summer, but expect to go pee pee lots. Over hydrating can be bad and flush a lot of good nutrients and stuff out of your body as well, but mostly you don't want to damage your kidneys, bladder, and honestly just have to keep getting up every 20-30 minutes to "go"... hehe.

GL with the itching, it will go away... and as they say the Red strains are usually more "strong", and for pain... I've found that out myself with the itching, sometimes my face gets red. I stick to green strains, they seem to be the middle ground for me when it comes to pain relief, anxiety relief, energy, and everything beneficial from kratom... I have tried a few white strains, and they either made me too edgy, or IDK how to explain.. just were not for me.

Your point about over hydration is important. I’ve had “low sodium” 2 yrs in a row from (assumingly) over hydration. It’s most definitely kratom related. Pink Himalayan salt will fix me up ;)

Food colorings are known allergens and cause lots of probelms in lots of sensitive people. WHY they have to put them in medication is BEYOND me.

I also itch and quite surprised that only a few experience this. Since Kratom mimicks opiods I wouldn't be surprised if people would experience the opiate itch
