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).

If it gets worse/persists despite well oiled skin, then get a medical check up from your doctor. ...Read more

I have two swollen lymph nodes that I've had for years. Recently I've had unbearably itchy skin. Also anemic. Could this be due to lymphoma?

It's possible. : Lymphoma can cause lymph node swelling, itching, and anemia. But so can many other things. Anemia is common in women who are menstruating. Itchy skin is common and can be due to dry skin, allergies, kidney problems or liver problems. And swollen lymph nodes that have not changed for years are not likely to be lymphoma. So you're probably fine, but see a doc to be sure! And try not to worry. ...Read more
