Pruritus: you need to have some blood tests to determine the cause. Sounds more systemic then a skin problem.

Tough to know: There are several potential explanations for these symptoms, but none very generalizable without more information. You would likely benefit from a virtual consult on Health Tap. More information about your health history and the timing of these symptoms can be discussed before the physician can comment on possible causes and a plan to achieve relief. Good luck!
