I have itch on my arms, legs, and buttock cheeks for a few months after I delivered my baby. There is no rash on the skin at all. What could it be?

In brief: Itchy skin

Itching without a rash can be due to dry skin,thyroid disorder, diabetes,etc.
If it's dry skin,apply alphakeri lotion after bathing while your skin is still wet. See your physician if symptoms persist and he/she will order the appropriate tests. Claritin (loratadine) or benadryl(causes drowsiness) helps reduce itching.
