My husband itches all over really bad but there is no visible rash or cause. This has been going on for a couple weeks. What could it be?

In brief: Generalized Itch
A generalized itch without a rash can be due to something as minor as dry skin but also may signal an internal problem such as kidney problems, liver problems, iron deficiency, hyperthyroidism/hypothyroidism or even some cancers.
During the winter its best to limit length and temperature of showers, soap use and immediately apply a good moisturizer.
