Itching all over with no rash, scalp, arms, hands, legs, everything itch what could be going on. About 4 days now, hoping its not lymphoma?

Itching: Many things can cause itching. While it is possible for lymphoma to be the culprit, it is not the first thing that jumps to my mind. Allergic reactions, medications, iron deficiency, liver or kidney disease, and psychological problems are much more likely causes. Lymphoma usually causes unexplained fever and weight loss, drenching night sweats, and swollen lymph glands. Please see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Uncontrollable itching all over body. No rash. Took Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and warm bad. Ate white cheddar puffs. 4hrs ago. Somewhat still itching but easier. ?

No rash?: Itching without rash is somewhat unusual for an allergic reaction to a food. Write down everything you have eaten in the past 12 to 24 hours. It may be something you don't suspect. If it occurs again, you can begin to narrow down the possibilities, if the itching is from an allergic cause. ...Read more

I have bad OCD about my health I itch all over with no rash, blood text came back normal internal med doctor does not seemed concern?

Don't worry: You did a good thing to check for physical causes. Since the expert is not concerned - you need not be. But I hear that you still are. So, you might seek an eval and Tx by a psychologist. If you are OCD, there are therapy strategies that help. Not easy, but effective. An eval is a good start. Best! ...Read more

Itching all over the body. No rash nothing at all. It just itches a lot all over. I put baby oil after i bath still its not okay!! :(?

See dermatologist: If the itching is so bothersome, you should consult a dermatologist since dry skin is apparently not the issue. The itch pathway is far more complex than we had thought and no longer just a matter of histaminic action. (I assume you have tried antihistamine already. If not, you may give it a try). ...Read more
