Itch is a complicated symptom. Most frequently it implies an allergic reaction, and this involves a medical diagnosis. If the cause of itch is not known, a medical evaluation is strongly recommended.
We recommend basic skin care instructions that help to prevent itching and sometimes creams, and occasionally oral steroids.
Causes of Itch
- Dry Skin
- Eczema or other skin rash
- Reaction to drug or supplement.* (Please bring in your medication list to your appointment)
- Airborne allergens

- Scabies, lice or other communicable itch
