I have acid reflux and I have been having intermittent itchy skin. Can these two be related? I tried various skin lotions but it didn't help. My liver blood test have come normal. Is the itchy skin an internal issue or because of dry skin?

In brief: Stress related

You may stress that cause your reflux and cause your skin to be itch intermittently.
You may want to look into this mental aspect.

Chronic untreated reflux can be quite serious and lead to a condition called Barrett's esophagus. A skin rash is usually a separate issue. See your doctor.
