7 Itchy Skin Causes and Itchy Skin Treatment | What Causes Itchy Skin?

Why is my skin itching? Don’t keep wondering why it is happening. It could be the result of one of the following conditions.

  • Excessively Dry Skin

Dry skin can cause itchiness. The skin loses its moisture, which makes it more prone to itching. Consulting a dermatologist who diagnoses the case and offers a personalized moisturizing treatment or an anti-itching cream can help.

  • Underlying Disease

Persistent itching could result from an underlying disease like diabetes, liver or kidney problems, blood disease, or overactive thyroid gland. However, itching is common in people who have cirrhosis, hepatitis C, or a blocked bile duct. You need a dermatologist to conduct an accurate diagnosis and treatment to reduce itching.

  • Skin Allergies

Your skin could be allergic to many substances. One of them is nickel, found in jewelry, mobile phones, eyeglass frames, etc. An allergic reaction can cause uncontrollable itching or rashes. To treat itching from allergic reactions, you must avoid touching substances or elements that cause allergies.

While allergies can be quickly noticed, identifying what’s causing them may take some time. You must consult a dermatologist who can help you find the cause.

  • Old Age

Old age, especially during the 60s, can cause the skin to thin and lose moisture. Dry skin, as you’ve already seen, can cause itching. Using a moisturizer can help. But you must avoid using anything without a dermatologist’s prescription. The key is to check with a dermatologist, who will recommend the best-suited moisturizer to your skin type and condition.

  • Medicinal Reaction

Itching could be one of the side effects of medications like aspirin, blood pressure medicines, etc. Patients undergoing cancer treatment may also suffer from itching. If you are on such medications, you must consult your doctor and know how to reduce such itching through prescribed treatment procedures.

Avoid self-treatment. You wouldn’t necessarily know how your body and the existing treatment may react to a particular non-prescribed itching treatment.
