I've had a mild itching all over my body. First one place then another. I've recently started taking Biotin in the morning & B12 in the evening. Could?

Stop taking: If you suspect that either Biotin or B12 might have caused the itching, you need to stop taking them for at least a week to see if that makes a difference. Dry skin is also a common issue at your age and may be helped by applying a moisturizer on the body within 3 minutes after bathing on a regular basis.

What could be the cause of this mild itching sensation all over my body?

Pruritis: I would encourage you to go to your physician for an exam. The first thing to do is to examine your skin to find a cause like dry skin, skin conditions, or reactions.

It seems that both of you have been scratching really bad that it leaves scar. Itching by itself does not leave scar. You should come see a local doctor to be evaluated and treated.

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
