Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my abdominal skin itching until I can see a doctor?

In brief: OTC Rx skin itch

Two otc products may help.
The first is a heavy duty moisturizer like eucerin ointment. Almost all skin diseases dry out the skin. Symptoms can be reduced and raw nerve endings soother by replacing the moisture. The 2nd treatment is otc Hydrocortisone cream, which is fairly effective against minor itch, but is not as strong as a doctor would prescribe.
