One of the most common reasons why some people itch is because of allergies. There are so many different things that people are allergic to from pets to foods to pollen outside. To help relieve some of the itching you may be feeling, try some over the counter allergy medication.
There are certain diseases that cause you to feel itchy such as chicken pox, shingles, and more. The rash from these diseases cause you to feel itchy. Try bathing in a bath with baking soda to help relieve some of the itchiness you may be feeling due to the rash and irritated skin.
Dry skin is most common in the winter months due to the dry air in your home, work, school, or other places. Dry skin can also be caused from using harsh chemicals or putting your hands in soapy water often during the day. Be sure to use gloves when cleaning to help keep the layers of your skin safe and moist. Be sure to use a good hand lotion or moisturizer to keep your skin moist. This will help keep your skin from feeling itchy.
There are several bugs such as mosquitoes and bees that bite that could cause you to feel itchy. You can help relieve this feeling of being itchy by applying ice to the area or even a little bit of rubbing alcohol to the area. This should help you from feeling itchy.
The itchy feelings you are having is due to some of the nerves in your body. Some nerves can make you feel pain while some nerves make you feel the touch of clothing or someone touching you. Some nerves are there to make you feel the itchy sensation. The nerves send a message to the brain which then tells your body that you have an itch. Try not to scratch if at all possible. Scratching can cause your skin to become red and can also cause your skin to get sores. Try to ignore the sensation if possible. Try to get your mind off of the itchiness and on to something else. If the itchiness is bad, see what the problem might be that you are feeling itchy and use lotions, over the counter medications, ice, or some other form of reliever.

Allergies are common for many people.
Great article! I am allergic to something in the anti anxiety medicine, Lexapro. It caused severe itching, but with no rash. I had to undergo several tests before it was found that my liver enzymes were sky high from the Lexapro. Obviously I stopped taking it. I had to be sedated for several days while getting the meds out of my system. It was horrible and kept me from sleeping, working, or even carrying on a conversation until the itching finally stopped. I do not take itching lightly! High 5 for this article!
