ANTI HISTAMINE: Good day. Both stress and anxiety can put a strain on your immune system resulting in the release of anti histamines. This in turn can cause an itch or aggravate an existing skin condition viz. Psoriasis ,dermatitis etc Speak to you health care practitioner to prescribe an anxiolytic for the evenings and monitor improvement in your condition
