Condition Info

Find out more about itchy skin, its symptoms and causes, and how to prevent it

What is itchy skin?

Itchy skin, medically referred to as Pruritus, is an uncomfortable sensation on the surface of the skin that makes you want to scratch. This occurs when histamine produced by the body’s reaction to an unpleasant trigger makes its way to the sensory nerves of the skin and attaches to receptors on these nerves. This histamine and nerve receptor interaction sends a signal to the brain that is interpreted as an itch, followed by an automatic urge to scratch. Scratching is a motor response to an itch and may relieve or in some cases, worsen the itch
