About a thousand thi: See a dermatologist. Do not experiment with pills. This is often a sign of something you need to find and treat. Need complete history and exam, probably lab.

I have itchy skin all over but no rash, remedy?

I have itchy skin all over but no rash, remedy?

Various causes: There are various causes of itchy skin without a rash including dry skin, liver problems, kidney disease, medications, thyroid disorders, etc. Obviously if your symptoms are very uncomfortable a checkup is advised. If dry skin is not the problem then Benadryl (diphenhydramine) offers relief but may make you drowsy. Claritin is less effective but doesn't cause drowsiness.

28/f, itchy skin all over body, no rash. Scared it could be lymphoma. Read its a common symptom. No dry skin, not allergic reaction. No other problems?

Get checked by Docto: Itching is common among normal healthy people. Most often it is due to dry skin which is very common in colder winter months (home heat make sit much worse). It is not a common symptom or lymphoma. So you can get that out of your mind. Use some oily lotions daily and it should settle down. If it gets worse/persists despite well oiled skin, then get a medical check up from your doctor.

Constant itchy skin all over with no visible rash or known allergy. Tried moisturizers, switching detergents and other remedies. Suggestions?

Constant itchy skin all over with no visible rash or known allergy. Tried moisturizers, switching detergents and other remedies. Suggestions?

Doctor can evaluate: A person with itchy skin all over, but no visible rash, can see his primary care doctor to see what the problem could be. If the skin is very dry, itching could result even without an obvious rash. Otherwise, the doctor might look for internal problems that can cause itching, such as drug side effects, liver disease, kidney disease, intestinal parasites, etc...

I have itchy skin all over. No sign of rash, but my mom has ringworm. Could my itchy skin be due to that or another issue? Never had this issue before

I have itchy skin all over. No sign of rash, but my mom has ringworm. Could my itchy skin be due to that or another issue? Never had this issue before

Itching: This could be due to allergy. Have you changed anything in your daily routine? Like your soap, shampoo, laundry detergent & so on? Or have you eaten something new? Try to reduce salt in your diet, you may try benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtic. Also dry skin can be itchy, use moisturizing soap like dove. If no improvement. See your doctor. Good luck. Ring worm should not cause generalized itching.

Incredibly itchy skin all over, with a pimply rash over my feet and legs. Been treated for scabies 5 times, and still have it. Could it be Lyme?

Incredibly itchy skin all over, with a pimply rash over my feet and legs. Been treated for scabies 5 times, and still have it. Could it be Lyme?

Doubtful.: This would not be a typical Lyme rash. Testing for Lyme during the rash phase usually isn't helpful - too early. I would see a dermatologist and treat the itching symptomatically in the meanwhile.

Itchy skin all over body, worse at night, rash isn't that noticeable but itches like crazy & sometimes burns. What could it be?

Itchy skin all over body, worse at night, rash isn't that noticeable but itches like crazy & sometimes burns. What could it be?

Many possibilities: When the body itches all over, it implies that the itching/rash may be a reaction from an ingestion such as a medication or food, or an allergy to the environment, ie hayfever. Another possibility could be a skin infestation such as scabies. Reactions to things like fabrics or laundry detergent will usually spare certain parts of the body such as the head/scalp, hands and feet.

Hi I have itchy skin all over my body including head, no rash. No new products being used?

Well: Well this could be an internal problem like a liver disease or kidney disease or diabetes or parasites or a problem with your blood chemistry or even parasites. You can develop a rash from a product you've used for a long time like laundry soap shampoo soap's perfumes lotions. Recommend Healthtap visit or primary care doctor visit for specific diagnosis and treatment

I have very itchy skin all over my body. Mainly legs and stomach areas. There are no bumps or rashes anywhere. Mainly happens when showering/sleeping?

Itching: Generalized itching without associated rash is often due to very dry skin. After showering, rub in a moisturizing substance like keri lotion to restore oils to your skin. Other causes could be diabetes, prickly heat, thyroid disorder or certain malignancies like lymphoma. A dermatologist could advise you and order any appropriate tests.

Allergic reaction to: Stick with your Brand name product! Most likely generic equivalent has inactive ingredient which caused you allergic reaction. Talk to your pharmacist. Take antihistamine as well.

Acquired allergies: Most reactions to medications including hives and dermal hypersensitivity reactions are acquired and occur after you have taken the medication for a while. Once you are allergic, if you stop and then take the medication again, the allergic reaction can happen more quickly.

Is allergy an inborn condition? I never had an unpleasant skin allergy (very itchy skin rashes) before until I turned 21.

Is allergy an inborn condition? I never had an unpleasant skin allergy (very itchy skin rashes) before until I turned 21.

Yes and no: While you may be born with a propensity toward developing allergies genetically, you actually have to be exposed to an allergen before you become allergic to it. It could happen the first time you are exposed or the hundredth. I, like you, did not start having hayfever symptoms until I was in my 20's. Yet every fall when ragweed is out, symptoms start unless I take my meds during that time of year
