I've had constant itchiness on scalp, neck, forearms, wrists, calves, genitals, abdominal, inner thighes etc.  Worse at night, showers soothe...Help?

Depends on the cause: Many, many things cause generalized itching. Itching is almost always worse at night, and showers usually soothe it, whatever the cause. You need an exam to determine the cause. You can try a long-acting antihistamine such as Allegra (fexofenadine) (now over-the-counter), but that just treats the symptoms, not the cause. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

No rash? No hives.: Most common reason for itching without a rash? Dry skin. Skin not dry? Liver, kidney, thyroid, and parathyroid disease - including thyroid & parathyroid cancers - cause itching without rash. Lastly, eczema is called "the itch that rashes" meaning intense itching leads to scratching resulting in a chronic rash. The places where you itch are typical areas for eczema. Time to see your doctor? Yes. ...Read more
