Avatar f tn It usually disappears right after delivery. You may also find that things that normally make you itchy, such as dry skin, make you even itchier when you're pregnant. Eczema often worsens during pregnancy, though some women find that their condition actually improves. With psoriasis the situation is reversed: Many women report less severe symptoms during pregnancy, while a few find that being pregnant makes their psoriasis worse.

Avatar m tn Hello, These symptoms can be due to allergies or dermatitis skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used, whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid. But they are available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a dermatologist. Symptoms can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin.

Skin conditions like psoriasis,dermatitis,eczema 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.

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 Hi, Itchy skin could be due to a lot of causes. Are there other symptoms present? Dry skin, other skin conditions, certain medical conditions, irritation, allergic reactions, and certain medications are some conditions to be considered. Try to avoid scratching to avoid skin reactions or whelps. This results to certain chemicals released by some cells in the body. If it persists, have this evaluated further to determine the underlying cause.

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.
1092880 tn?1273978625 Hello there, Of course itchy skin can be s symptoms of anxiety and stress. Have you ever see someone scratching himself really bad while he was under heavy stress? Everyone should at least saw that in a movie once in his life. But itchy skin could also be allergies so maybe it would be a cool idea to get tested. Anxiety is your body and mind overreacting to almost everything so even the feeling of your clothe on your skin might produce a itchy feeling.

Avatar n tn My skin doesn't appear dry. Also, I have developed a burning, itchy and sometimes red skin under my arms, breasts, and groin. These areas have an unpleasant odor and are often sticky. I must bath every day to keep the burning to a reasonable level. I wonder if these might have something to do with the meds I am taking for high blood pressure.
