Basic skin care: Dry skin is the most common cause of chronic itching and people often associate itching with being dirty etc... As a result, they clean the skin too much--soaps, scrubbing, frequent hot showers/baths, all of which can make the itching worse. So, minimize hot showers, harsh-soap, and increase use of skin moisturizer 2-3x/day, especially right after showering. If not better, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have itchy skin everywhere no dry skin and when it itches it starts to burn and get red but no bumps or rash what is this?

Well: It gets red and itches then goes away, no rash or bumps. It could be a rash or what is called idiopathic urticaria, release of inflammation due to stress.

I would trey Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and tagamet is pretty cheap. Look up idiop. ...Read more
