Hormonal control.: Night time itching is commonly treated with anti fungal and steroid creams, and if it works, great. Too often though, there are no outward appearances of skin disruption, dryness or infestation. In those cases, the topical treatments are useless. It is thought that perhaps, the effect of what is known as the circadian rhythm, may be the underlying cause. You need to see a competent specialist. ...Read more
