    i'm trying to figure out if i'm getting too much nicotine or maybe not enough.
    or maybe its something else entirely.. i dunno.

    btw: i AM drinking plenty of water.

    well.. based on the info you have provided.. I'd say you wont be dehydrated. I would put the blame elsewhere, considering the fight we have with the fda with all this. we cannot afford to give them any new ideas on the demise of ecigs. If nicotine did this, you would see a disclaimer on side of a box of smokes.
    Or stop vaping for a bit to see if you stop itch?

    This could be a blood pressure thing, what mg of nic do you use? Its not a definitively bad thing, but it could be caused by too much nic. I would suggest trying lower nic and see if that helps.

    When I say blood pressure, what I mean is cardio vascular. My wife has this happen sometimes when she works out and get her heart rate up, where she itches all over her body.

    Nicotine is a stimulant, so it could cause the same thing.

    You could be slightly allergic to either PG or VG...this happens with some people. Just keep a close eye on it, try a 100% vg type juice to determine if the PG could be affecting you in that way. I don't know much about the allergen sides to these, but if you ask around (or do a search) i'm sure you could find more info about it on this forum.

    I don't itch but I do dance a little after a good vape session. This video shows what I do on the most part. It's fun, makes my son laugh.

    too much PG in my juice makes me itch. I cannot exceed 50% or I get hives and sometimes, my lips will swell and tingle.

    I have had an itchy rash on my left forearm since I give up analogs and started vaping.

    My lungs are cleaner and my heart rate has gone down and I have saved a heap of money and i dont smell any more and the wife is a lot happier!

    Did I say I had an itchy arm? :)

    Sort of reminds me of the little sores I got from vaping, still tinkering with the mix to totally rid myself of them, but it wound up being too much PG in my new tank/carto combo. Love the PG flavors, hate the effect of too much though.

    i have terrible itching all over my body ever since I started vaping, but I don't want to stop... 100% VG doesn't give me the inhaled satisfaction of PG... not sure what to do... this makes me incredibly depressed..

    I just want to remind everyone that it is winter and the heat is on so the air is naturally dryer, try lotion. My skin gets horribly itchy in the winter time and it did last winter too when I was smoking cigs. Just a thought.

    too much PG sets my throat on fire, reminds me of my childhood when I got Tonsolitis every stinking year!!
