Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin without any rash on the body can be due to dry skin, psoriasis, dermatitis, lice, scabies and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders, diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals, wool, soaps, cosmetics and certain foods can cause itchy skin. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used.

Avatar n tn For awhile now I've been having itchy skin, there is no redness, no hives or anything like that, but it is itchy all over, and kinda feels as if something is crawling on me. I shower on a daily basis so I know I'm not dirty or anything like that. I also moisturize my skin often so I don't think it's because my skin is overly dry. But it seems to be triggered when the weather is cool or cold.

Avatar n tn If you have blisters at tip of fingers and dry skin then you need to rule out certain conditions such as diabetes, psoriasis, hypothyroidism, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis and malnutrition. Generalized itching can be due to allergy. Common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, synthetic fiber, food, cosmetics (powders, soaps, shampoos—see if anything was recently changed) or drugs. Food allergies like to gluten, lactose, sea food, and alcohol etc too should be looked into.
Avatar m tn Ive had on and off mild itchy skin for a while now. At first my doctor thought it might be lymphoma itch. However, my CT scan test results said "no significant hilar,axillary and mediastinal lymphadenopathy". So my doctors ruled lymphoma out. My GI doc says I might have IBS or a mild IBD but my diarrhea symptoms are controlled with immodium. The itch itself is mild, its mostly on legs and back. If theres an itch on my back so I scratch it then it will return somewhere else on my body.
Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Dry skin usually results from environmental factors like hot or cold weather with low humidity levels, long-term use of air conditioning or central heating, and washing or bathing too much. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Also since then I have had itchy skin all over (not on the bumps on my arms. Mostly around the face.) I was thinking maybe I have dry skin? I have been using lotion a lot more lately, and have washed all my clothes and bed sheets. My mom checked my head for lice (maybe I picked something up at the renaissance fair?) and says that I don't have any (She is a nurse so I trust her, so I think I have dandruff). Anybody have any idea what this could be? I'm kinda stressing out over it.

295468 tn?1217600338 I have read several posts that have mentioned itchy skin and was wondering is this a symptom of OVCA or ovarian cysts?? Also someone mentioned green discharge from breasts - is this a symptom? I am new to these boards and am trying to understand symptoms, tests...
Avatar n tn My husband has the same problem and a Type 2 diabetic. The skin on his legs and feet turn bright red and itch like crazy. None of the doctors seem to know what causes it and typical topical ointments; i.e., cortisone, calamine, Benadryl do nothing except make the areas burn more. Currently, when this happens, he is given an injection of Prednazone then a prescription capsule(s) for several days. We'd also like to find out why this is happening.
