My body has been itching for about two months now but i don't have rashes! i get little tiny red bumps but they come and go. What can this be?

Itching with no rash: The list of conditions that could cause itch without rash is long, like thyroid problems, liver or kidney disease, even malignancies among others.

Please see your doctor right away for proper diagnosis. ...Read more
