What cause a certain part of my skin to itch for such a long spell dispite some medication.?

Eczema or seborrhea come to mind. Does that area have scales and redness? If so, it may be either. Get some Cetaphil cream and rub it into the area twice a day to see if that helps. Good luck to you!!

Where does it itch? I have eczema and it's usually the insides of the knees and elbows. If it itches really bad in those places you could try rubbing lotion on it, it really helps. Also, you could go to any doctor and get a steroid creme to thin out the skin and decrease the itching by a lot.


What can I do for my hair skin which itches in two days after I wash my hair?

get head and shoulders shampoo and conditioner, i use my normal hair products as well though!
Reply:head and shoulders is the best thing you can do for an itchy scalp it also makes your hair lovely,i've never found anything to top it.
Reply:you probably need a shampoo and/or conditioner with moisturizers.


(two days?? how often do you wash your hair?)
Reply:there re shampoos in pharmacies, special ones, i can't tell u the name cos they differ from country to country. but if u re from europe try vichy for dry skin
Reply:DO YOU MEAN YOUR SCALP? IF SO,TRY A ANTI DANDRUFF SHAMPOO.SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A FLAKY SCALP.
Reply:Wash hair daily (head and shoulders)





Use Scalpicin (maximum strength only - the kind with 1% hydrocortisone in the blue box) twice a day - after drying hair in morning, and before bedtime. Its expensive but a bottle will last you about a month and during the winter it will keep the dry air from causing your scalp to itch. You can find it in any discount drug store in the shampoo aisle.





The above regimen will stop all flaking too.

Reply:you could try changing you shampoo. x
Reply:Head %26amp; Shoulders is rubbish. Get some Neutrogena T-Gel Theraputic shampoo. If it doesn't work I'll give you your money back! It looks like this: http://www.ciao.co.uk/Neutrogena_T_Gel_T...
Reply:Go to your nearest salon and get some paul mitchell tea tree shampoo.that stuff is awesome!!


Does anybody know any natural antihistamines??? i suffer from a really really bad itching?

i dont want to take a pill anymore like polaramine celestamine benadryl etc.. when i itch my skin usualy feels hot, want to scratch it so bad want to use a fork. then i will have bumps afterwards. itching will stop a little then comeback again unless i take an antihistamine. i want to get pregnant. but taking antihistamines can prevent you from getting pregnant, thats why i want to take the natural ones if theres any. like fruits or food supplements????

Depending on exactly what you are allergic to, there are homeopathic remedies out there that work GREAT and have no side effects at all. For example, Im mildly allergic to cats so I take Bio Allers Animal Dander and it completely gets rid of it. When I go to a farm or something, I take the formula for whatever situation I am going into that triggers an allergy. Everyone that I know that has taken this stuff loves it.
Reply:Check out Dr. Andrew Weil. Google him. He's an MD with expertise in eastern and natural medicine as well.


I think witch hazel is supposed to be good for a topical treatment.
Reply:Aveno ( sp?) has a natural oatmeal bath, and lotion.


Oatmeal is a natural healer for itching. If it covers your body then you are looking at hives, this is caused by an allergy to somthing like a certain food. I use to get them from strawberries.


Before you search for a natural cure you sould get your self to an allergist and find out the why.
Reply:Hot Baths with Baking soda!


The soda softens water and is great for your skin!
Reply:I would like to know this too.
Reply:What are you allergic to? If you don't know, you should find out so you could avoid it. Baking soda baths are pretty effective for temporary relief. I used that with my kids when they had chicken pox. Have you tried any creams? You could see an herbalist for a natural remedy? The best is to avoid the allergen when at all possible.
Reply:I know of a couple all natural supplements that act as a natural antihistamine. One is Alfalfa Complex and the other is FlavoMax. Also, Vita-C has a natural antihistamine effect.





Hope this is useful and feel free to contact me with questions or the brand I suggest.
Reply:try eucerin cream, it works really well


Why does a specific patch of skin always itch? There's no visual rash and this has been happening for years!

Sounds like you've got a few random nerves there firing for no reason. Can you remember having any kind of injury to that arm that could have damaged some nerves? Did you maybe have a minor burn on it or something?





-OR-





Think back: Does it seem like one particular person is always around when this happens? Maybe someone close to you is an arm-tickler. You may need to do an intervention.

It might be photosensitivity -- does it itch if its been in the sun? That, or sweat/heat may cause itching.
Reply:Check with your doctor for worms, or other types.. that ly beneath your skin.. sometimes.. it can be a habit..
Reply:It could be from nerve endings. Sometimes the nerves will cause this to happen. It might eventually become numb. You didn't say where the rash was located, arm, back, chest...anyway, you might want to mention it to a doctor and get his input on it...
Reply:See a dermatologist.
Reply:No idea, really. But have you checked for nerve damage? I don't know if that will cause itch or not, but it does cause numbness. I also remember reading an article a number of years ago about how an unexplained itch was the first sign a man had of cancer.





Ask a doctor about it.





Good luck!
Reply:This happens because there r these microscopic bugs deep down in ur skin that is really affecting u. if u look at it under a microscope u would c wat i'm talking about.

You can try a foot scrub or a pumice stone to get rid of the flaky skin and then a foot moisturizer to minimize the flaking- if it persists for 2 months or more you may need to see a physician.
Reply:its not okay.. you should get a pedicure, or get a foot scrub to scrub off all of the flakyness, it will rub off all of the dead skin.
Reply:if its not Athletes foot (which causes itching) it may be dead skin cells that accumulate daily. Scrape them off or slough them off with a foot scrub and file with pumice stone.





athlets foot there s solutions at the pharmacy.





or check with a podiatrist.
Reply:Sounds like an allergy. Try olive oil on it nite with a sock. Did you get into poison ivy?
Reply:It could be fungus, try to use athlete foot cream.
Reply:I don't know how "bad" your foot is but I had dry flaky foot soles and I used Avon Foot Works Tropical Coconut Sea Salt Foot Scrub in conjunction with Avon Foot Works Intensive Callus Cream. Although I did not have calluses, I had dry feet and these have worked wonders. Unfortunately, I don't know of any good home remedies that have worked. Good luck!
Reply:It might be Cellulitis, see a doctor.


What do i use for my skin, it itches like mad after having my bath or going for a dip in the water?

My husband has Xerosis (chronic dry skin). It itches a lot. Is there anything that you could suggest?

besides hydrocortisone cream and benadryl cream

My husband has Xerosis (chronic dry skin). It itches a lot. Is there anything that you could suggest?
I have seen first hand xerosis symptoms reduced and even eliminated by removing the chlorine from the water. From scratching till bleeding to no symptoms within 2 weeks.





Chlorine is an oxidizer and many people are sensitive to this. Many people don't know that our skin absorbs water. Try it for yourself. Weigh yourself before you get in the shower / bath and then weight yourself after. If you've heard of the nicotine patch, that works by dermal absorption (through the skin) Our skin absorbs chlorine and will take up to 1 month to completely dissipate the chlorine from your skin.





Chlorine also vaporizes when you shower in hot water. Some people get light headed or dizzy in the shower. The filter will help with this also.





If this makes sense the cheapest thing you can do is get a KDF shower head filter. You can find them on-line for about $40. they last a year, and you can install it yourself.





Most people find that if you remove the chlorine from your water you don't actually need to use as much lotion.





If you still have the problem you might be allergic to your detergent, soap or something like that.





Most times you see a dermatologist for these symptoms they will suggest trying a different type of soap and detergent
Reply:oatmeal bath.. works goooooood!
Reply:scratch it.....





a pill... see your dermatologist.. they got pills for everything..
Reply:l'bri lotions work really well. Google them!
Reply:Steroids are about the only other way...My Hubby has the same problem, and he can't stand the gross ointment and creams they prescribe them.
Reply:Oatmeal bath!
Reply:i don't really know just try all the stuff that u can think of, hydrocortisone or benadryl cream, u never know what will happen (-__-)
Reply:Ohh yes to the oatmeal bath. Also: smoking is very bad for people with this condition, as is heavy sugar consumption.





I have found avocado and avocado oil to be excellent for dry skin conditions.





Also, tea tree oil soaps and shampoos are very kind to dry skin.
Reply:Aveeno lotion. They have some with oatmeal in it that takes the itch out.
Reply:Theres something you can get at any herbal shop,I can't remember the name of it. Go in and ask for what your looking for.I know a guy who uses something from a store like that and it works great. around $30 a bottle but last a month and you take it once a day. Just check it out,can't hurt to try. GNC maybe.
Reply:www.thefirst.originallimu.com this will hydrate the skin and should alleve his itch. its kind of pricey, but well worth it as many are now useing this will attest. It is all natural and considered a whole food so he wont have any side effects, and he will love you for it later on.
Reply:An ointment available by prescription known as "Ultravate"





It's a synthetic hydrocortisone and more effective than OTC brands.





It's kinda pricey, but it works.
