Skin itching

My mother is suffering from skin itching problem specially during winter and that too night times it's increasing.This problem is there since 4 yrs.we visited many doctors they prescribe some moisturizer and some tabs ,till she is having tablets the itching is controlled but once the medicines are over the problem again repeats.once doc said to have a test done regarding the complete allergens(allergic profile)to know what is the specific allergic type because when the general tests were done they showed normal reports.she is a diabetic and blood pressure patient but both are in control.

Itching is common problem during winters.if skin is dry it worsens the condition.usage of moisturiser regularly many times daily is must.apart from that if she has any rashes too treatment is needed for that also.some skin conditions recur during winter.get examine even liver function tests too.tablets for itching she need to take for longer duration if condition persists.

visit dermatologist to know present condition and for thorough evaluation.
