Need to know about the duration of your symptoms and type of your skin.
Sometimes itching is due to hot season n lot of sweating as the season is going on now but sometimes there are other reasons .
If your dkin is very dry then treatment would be totally different and in that case calamine lotion will not be helpful because it increases the dryness of skin.
Common treatment for both the cases will be use of a BLOOD PURIFIER ...PURODIL SYP 2 - 2 - 2 spoons. CAP. NEEM 2 - 2 - 2
Avoid sour , oily, , spicy food
Stop all kinds of junk food
Stop milk and milk products.
Eat healthy food ....vegetables. salads etc

pruritus , itchy skin may be the result of a rash or another condition, such as psoriasis or dermatitis. Or itchy skin may be a symptom of a disease, such as liver disease or kidney failure.
Long-term relief requires identifying and treating the cause of itchy skin. Itchy skin treatments include medications, wet dressings and light therapy. Self-care measures, including using anti-itch products and taking cool baths, also can help.
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. Examples include Cetaphil, Eucerin, CeraVe and others.

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, uncooked oatmeal or colloidal oatmeal — a finely ground oatmeal that is made for the bathtub (Aveeno, others).Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. This will help you avoid irritation.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.Use a mild, unscented laundry detergent when washing clothes, towels and bedding.Try using the extra-rinse cycle on your washing machine.Avoid substances that irritate your skin or that cause an allergic reaction. These can include nickel, jewelry, perfume or skin 9999products with fragrance, cleaning products, and cosmetics.Reduce stress. Stress can worsen itching. Counseling, behavior modification therapy, meditation and yoga are some ways of relieving stress.
