Continous Itching

Hello Doctor, I'm facing continous itching around my arms, back and legs, from last 2 weeks. I took a medicine for 2 days and it was okay for those 2 particular days. Kindly advise whether is it a symptom of some disease or just due to weather change?

Hi, there are various causes for itchy skin.. Use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply this cream at least once or twice daily, concentrating on the areas where itching is most severe... Avoid scratching whenever possible. Cover the itchy area if you can't keep from scratching it. Trim nails and wear gloves at night....Apply cool, wet compresses. Covering the affected area with bandages and dressings can help protect the skin and prevent scratching....Take a lukewarm bath. Sprinkle the bath water with baking soda... Choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes. Be sure to rinse the soap completely off your body. And after washing, apply a moisturizer to protect your skin...Consult Dermatologist if symptoms persists...
