The whole part of my body is itchy what treatment should I buy to stop it?

Diffuse Itching: Diffuse itching can be treated by taking antihistamines such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) over the counter, taking cool baths, etc. However the larger question is why is it happening?

Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more
