Management Of Itching

Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you scratch your skin. It can occur in any part of the body. It is caused due to allergic reactions to foods, insect bites, and pollen, eczema, psoriasis, irritating chemicals or cosmetics, scabies, body lice and head lice, pregnancy, and thyroid diseases. Avoid triggering agents that cause itching. Moisturize your skin daily. Reduce stress. Use creams, lotions, or gels to soothe the skin. Apply ice packs for five minutes on itchy areas.
