Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for choosing this platform.

It is very difficult to treat patients with itching all over body. The duration of itching, your occupation, family history, etc., is not clear.

Observe for any aggravating or relieving factors, like diet, day or night, temperature, allergies or allergens, etc.

Use a gentle soap or any moisturizing soap.

Take antihistamine like Cetirizine in morning, Atarax (Hydroxyzine hydrochloride) 25 mg in evening for itching.

If any other members in family have travel history at present, then treatment for scabies infestation may be required.

Get treatment for any infection like dental caries or worm infestations in the body.

If it persists for long-time blood investigations may be required .
