Itching : Itching can be caused by almost anything such as dry skin, eczema, mites, or as a manifestation of an internal medical condition (such as thyroid, anemia, or rarely more serious disease). I would recommend you use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) one hour prior to going to bed and apply cerave cream twice daily. If your symptoms don't improve over the next couple of days, seek the guidance of a dermatologist who can evaluate you to determine what the cause may be so that proper treatment can be given.

See dermatologist: Itching for a 67 y.o is very common. However, it makes sense to be eval and txed if necessary. Although somewhat rare, there are some more serious medical conditions that might cause the itching. Also, most itching can be treated effectively with top products including special baths, creams, and lotions as well as oral meds Get checked out.
