Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin vitamin deficiency

Also, until I read other people's symptoms, I hadn't realized that vitamin D deficiency was such an MS mimic. Even healthy people should probably track their vitamin levels just as they do their cholesterol levels.
Can a Vitamin D deficiency cause this much pain? Went to the doc for muscle pain & weakness with increasing shooting pains to the point of affecting everyday functioning. Blood test came back low in Vitamin D. Result was 11, (should be 26 to 55). Other results OK. Cervical Spine & lower back MRI OK. Treatment is 50,000 units of D per week for 4 weeks and thereafter once a month. Been on it for 4 months. Feel at times like I was in accident.
I feel that an evaluation by a dermatologist and neurologist will be the best to differentiate whether it is itchy skin or parasthesias.Treatment is entirel different for all. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you had any other queries.
About 3 months ago, my skin started to become extremely itchy. I changed everything from shampoos, soaps, lotions, to detergents. I also stopped taking in my bcp and vitamin B supplements believing those were the cause of my itch. To this day, I still have the itch. I itch all over the body, from legs, arms, upper body, back, and sometimes my head. I also noticed hives on my face.

Applying a moisturizer and using only soaps that are gentle on the skin is helpful in this case. Vitamin A deficiency and diabetes too can cause dry skin. Hence these should be ruled out. Drink plenty of fluids and water. Keep a trough of water or use a humidifier at home in your rooms. You can apply petroleum jelly and glycerine on your skin at bed time. When choosing a moisturizer, look for oil-based creams and ointments. Fresh juice of tomato, cucumber and orange can be applied.
It's a vitamin B deficiency. Start taking B vitamins and your skin will then be able to breath. Let me know how it works out. It worked immediately for me.
male 57, severe burning, itchy skin, no visable rash, only at night, has high RH numbers on blood test, benedryl does not help, has RA symptoms brought on by glacoma meds. Any ideas? He can't sleep at night.
Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the tingling is gone or not. In case the symptoms persist then pls consult a neurologist as it can be due to some neurological disorder.Treatment will depend on the diagnosis.

Habitually showering or bathing more than once a day should be avoided to prevent dry skin. It can have many different causes, including general dehydration, Vitamin A deficiency, and diabetes. Externa factors affecting skin are washing with excessively hot water, using nonmoisturizing soap, showering or bathing more than once a day, and bathing for long periods of time. Environmental factors such as excessive sun exposure and pollutants in the air can damage the skin.

Firstly,It can be due to vit B deficiency. Take some vitamin B complex for some days and see if your symptoms improve. Secondly,it can be due to cheilitis. Avoid licking the lips and around it as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.
My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.

I just stumbled on to this site, I was diagnosed with b12 deficiency about 4 months ago and now I just found out my Vitamin D levels are around 12, so now I am taking all these Vitamin Ds. I have noticed, that I have these blisters, they are really tiny all around my thumbs and pointer fingers. Has anyone experienced this> I also have had severe itchy dry skin.
Please note, I am still taking my vitamin supplements. I strongly suggest anyone with itchy skin, feeling of bugs crawling, especially at night....go see a chiropractor!!!
About 2 years ago I went to a neurologist because my left hand was numb and ached, I was dissy and extremely exhausted. I have had unexplained itchy skin on and off for almost 10 years (no allergy meds or dermatologist helped). The neurologist did tests and said my ferritin & B12 were normal but on the low side so he had me take supplements which I currently do. I did do a nerve conductivity test and had multiple places where I had nerve damage, including both arms and legs, and neck.
Hi, If it due to an auto-immune disease or a Vitamin deficiency then the itching will not be restricted only to the legs. It could be because of dry skin, which is felt more prominently on large surface areas, like the legs or it could be an allergic reaction to personal care products/rough clothing. Fibres from wollen or synthetic material can trigger a reaction in predisposed individuals.
Here's another thread here dealing with the same problem - the consensus seems to be B12 deficiency. Lots of good ideas. http://www.medhelp.

Going outside for a walk helps or at least elevating my legs, but the itching takes a while to really completely go away. I don't know if it's hormones, or stress, or a vitamin deficiency, or reaction to hard water, but it has no visible signs on my skin, just the uncontrolled itchy feeling. Lately, my arms have started itching a little too, but not anywhere near the severity of my legs. For those of you who thought it was only an east coast thing,,...
And yes, believe it or not, all your symptoms can be related to a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is NOT easy to obtain through foods and foods that contain vitamin D are fortified with it. Little exposure to or no exposure to the sun and/or dark skin and being overweight can also be causes for vitamin D deficiencies. Take the prescribed amount and try to get 15-20 mins in the sun/per day if you can. You should notice an improvement probably after a month. You aren't alone.
