See derm/allergist.: If you have been applying Aveeno (oatmeal) lotion within minutes after bathing on a regular basis and still itch, it's time to consult a dermatologist or allergist.

Many causes: Generalized itching(pruritis), in the absence of any visible abnormalities of the skin, can be due to occult(hidden) systemic illness such as malignancies and liver/biliary disorders.However, often times no definite cause is found. Anxiety, stress and psychiatric disorders can often cause itching. Medications can cause itching. For Advice for dealing with itching SEE: http://bit.ly/1u0iDFO
