If there are specific areas or objects that bring about a reaction to your skin, consider avoiding them. Itchy skin can also be a symptom of an allergy so it may be worthwhile to be tested for possible allergies if you seem to consistently experience itchy skin and don’t know what is causing it. Note that sometimes even skin care products as well as certain foods can bring about a reaction.
Warm or cold treatment?
You might find that taking a shower will help to relieve itchy skin. Alternatively, consider gently applying a cold compress to help calm down the skin.
