What causes itching?
The cause of itchy skin can vary from person to person. It can often be caused by dry skin conditions, such as eczema, but can also be caused by a number of other conditions, such as allergies. To determine the cause of your skin, you will need to monitor your body and when your itching appears. You can also visit your doctor who can ask a series of questions and decide the best course of action to determine and treat your itchiness.
What is the relationship between dry skin and itching?
Dry skin causes irritation because your skin is lacking the moisture it needs to stay healthy. Dry and flakey skin can also become itchy. If your itching is caused by dry skin, you can use moisturisers and moisturising products to help rejuvenate your skin with the moisture it needs. These products can also act as a protective barrier to help lock in moisture during colder weather to help prevent itching skin caused by the flaking of dry skin.
Is itching a symptom of hayfever and allergies?
Itching can be a symptom of hayfever and allergies. If your itching is caused by hayfever and allergies, then managing your condition is important to help prevent symptoms such as itching. Antihistamines are medicines often used to relieve symptoms of allergies, such as hay fever, hives, conjunctivitis and reactions to insect bites or stings. They can also help prevent itchiness and related symptoms. For those who still experience itchy skin, the addition of hydrocortisone creams can be useful. They can help to relieve flare ups as well as calm and soothe irritated, itchy skin.
