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.

How common is itchy skin?

Approximately 280 million people globally, 4% of the population, have difficulty with itchiness.

What causes itchy skin?

Infections eg Ringworm, scabies, Varicella (chicken pox), insect bites (mosquitoes etc), head and body lice Allergies eg chemical, plant and food allergies, allergies to jewelry, soaps, latex  Medical conditions eg psychiatric conditions, pregnancy, excessive red blood cell production (polycythemia vera), gallbladder diseases, diabetes, liver and kidney diseases  Excessively dry skin, psoriasis, dandruff  Opioids and anti-cancer drugs

What can I do to prevent itchy skin?

What are symptoms of itchy skin?

Itchy Skin is a symptom of several skin conditions, allergies, liver or kidney problems, and pregnancy. It may be experienced all over the body (generalized)  or in specific parts of the body (localized) depending on the underlying cause. Irrespective of the location and cause, the perception of itchiness is the same. Itchy Skin can sometimes be accompanied by a rash. This rash may appear as huge skin bumps or tiny skin bumps with reddening of the surrounding skin, thickened rough skin, or a dry scaly skin.

What are treatments for itchy skin?

Treating Itchy skin requires the use of different therapies depending on the underlying cause. Itchiness is relieved using medications such as steroid creams, soaps, antifungals or pills known as antihistamines. Relieving the itch prevents excess scratching leading to darkening of the skin or introducing bacteria into the skin.
