Getting a lot of itchiness of the whole body. Wha'ts the strongest antihistamine and cream to apply?
Itchy skin. Shower does not help, only antihistamine. Tried removing various items from my diet. Happens at anytime of the day.

If taking Cetirizine daily doesn't work, or if you develop a rash that accompanies the itching, see an allergist. Some people need to take Cetirizine for a long time; that's ok. ...Read more

?: Did you mean "skin cancer" by "SK"? , no , not really, skin cancer would be different and in general wouldn't be itchy, if it doesn't go away by antihistamine or anti-itch (hydrocortisone) cream, see your doctor, proper exam for better evaluation would be needed then for right diagnosis ...Read more

Itchy rash: Are you sure it is sand fly bites? Have you seen a doctor since a rash is best treated with visual evaluation.
