Dermatologist needed: Hi: you should see a dermatologist to properly evaluate the underlying cause of itching, as there may be many. In addition, your scratching may introduce a secondary bacterial and/or fungal infection due to the violation of the skin barrier. Therefore, a thorough evaluation is warranted.
