Rash? Is there anaccompaning rash? Isolated itching can be from the outside dry skin, cold, exercise or an irritation. From the inside due to medications, renal, or liver issues. Hydrocortisone cream, Saran lotion, calamine, aloe vera can all offer temporary reilef. Need more info for a more specific answer.
Many possibilities. There are many things that could cause a rash. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
Skin Irritants. A list of the top culprits that trigger skin reactions, or contact dermatitis. Some cause symptoms like redness, itchy skin, or inflammation. Some are triggered by an individual's allergy (contact allergic dermatitis) while other chemicals affect everyone (contact irritant dermatitis). http://www. Webmd.

Dry skin? Common cause of all over itching is dry skin, but many other possibilities. Could you be more specific?
Dry skin. That is one cause. Are there any other clues?
Most likely.... ..You are allergic to the soap you are using, or you are showering too frequently and washing the protective oils off your skin. Try showering less, with a different (and mild) soap. If that doesn't work see your doctor, because it could be something unusual -- for example, the classic presentation of a rare disease called polycythemia vera is itching after bathing.
Sun Sensitivity. You may have a sensitivity to the sun where you get hives when you are exposed to sunlight. I would go see a Board Certified Allergist for further evaluation and treatment.
Polymorphic light. Eruption, which is condition that occurs in reaction to sunlight on the skin, a rash happens and it's itchy, it's not dangerous though, you need to protect your skin by wearing sun-screen, long sleeves and hat, avoid direct sun exposure, Hydrocortisone cream OTC can help with the itching, see a Dermatologist.
Yes. Common causes of itchy skin include new medications or topical products and weather changes. If you are developing shortness of breath or difficulty breathing along with itchy skin, dial 911. You could be having early signs of anaphylactic shock. Some safe things to try for itchy skin is to hydrate wet skin after bathing. I love aquaphor or eucerin or a similar bland emollient. Try avoiding any new products or harsh chemicals. A small amount of Hydrocortisone over-the-counter cream can also be tried for a few days. Avoid the face with Hydrocortisone unless instructed otherwise by a physician.
Yes. There are 2 ways to relieve itching-external topical treatment and internal medications. Applying cold compresses or taking cool shower will give some immediate temporary relief. Anti-itch creams such as benadryl, (diphenhydramine) calamine, lanacaine and hdrocortisone will give more long lasting relief. Oral antihistamines will provide the most effective relief. If needed topical treatments can be use while taking oral agent.
Yes, it can. Dry skin definitely itches, especially when it stretches a little, like when you bend over or reach for something. Try a daily moisturizer to help with this.
Cold urticaria. Most likely related to the ice causing release of histamines from the cell. Not an allergic reaction, however I would advice against sudden exposure to cold temperatures.
Dry skin. Place moisturizer every morning after you shower. Most likely the dry skin you are getting is from the lack of moisture in winter. This is common. Use a quality moisturizer often.
Moisturize. This depends of what is the cause of itching. In general, itching is a sign of inflammation. This could be a result of medications, allergic exposure, or infection. Moisturizer and Hydrocortisone creams over-the-counter generally helps relieve some itch. However, if the cause of the problem is still present, you will continue to itch. If your itch persists, you should see a doctor.
Red itchy skin. Those symptoms mean the skin is irritated. Cool compresses can soothe it and reduce the redness. Hydrocortisone and moisturizers can help with the itching.
Why do I itch? It is impossible to know why you itch as there are so many causes. Itching from a lotion or cream would be localized to the areas in which the cream or lotion was applied. Allergic reactions to medications or foods are usually more generalized (all over).
