My brother has suffered from very severe itching all over his body for about 8 years now. he itches right after bathing or when he sweats. ?

Cholinergic ?

Itching_all_over
If he has itchy bumps also, then it is called cholinergic urticaria which flares up after the body gets heated up then cools off. This can often be prevented by taking an antihistamine such as Zyrtec. It may go away by itself with time but is not a serious health issue.

How do I relieve severe itching?

Itch relief

Itching
Is this isolated itching with no rash, no skin yellowing, no nausea, no loss of appetite, no difficulty breathing? If so, you can take benadryl to help with itching. Believe it or not, acupuncture can be great for itching. If you have other generalized symptoms or the itching does not resolve, please seek medical evaluation. Take care.

Dr. Richard Tholen answered:

severe itching on chest and back?

Need more info

Itching
How long has this been present? Any other areas of the body involved? New clothing, laundry soap, or bedsheets? Could be contact dermatitis or allergic reaction to one of the above, or something else, but would probably involve the entire body if allergy to something taken orally, like food or medicine. Oral Benadryl (no Rx needed) can help relieve symptoms, but finding/stopping cause is better!

Dry skin

Low_back_pain
The most common cause is dry skin especially during the winter and dry months. Avoid all scented soap and apply a good skin moisturizer within minutes after bathing. If these measures failed, consult a dermatologist.
