In brief: Itchy inflammation

Itching or pruritis often signifies allergy and inflammation.
It i s the bodies immune system reacting to something environmental and often the body reacting to itself. Can sometimes be related to medications, infection an sometimes more serious underlying disease including liver. Your doctor should be providing more explanation.
