NOTE: My advice is strictly informational, if symptoms persist or increase, consult you doctor.

An all over itch can be a very uncomfortable thing, so here are a few things that can cause it and some home remedies to relieve it.


* Certain medications can cause an itch, the most common are, Vicodin, morphine, codeine and aspirin.

* Allergies like a food allergy, nickel allergy (tap water contains nickel)cobalt in certain perfumes.

* Diseases like liver and kidney disease, thyroid dysfunction, polycythemia and cancer.

* Insects and dust mites.

* clothing and bedding.

* Too hot bath water.

* Extreme heat and dehydration.


* Pat dry rather than rubbing the skin dry.

* Put your clothing trough a extra rinse cycle to remove access detergent and softener.

* Avoid harsh and cheap cosmetics, try using fragrance and colorant free products.

* Avoid products that contain alcohol.

* Add one of the following to your bath water...
evaporated milk, lemon juice, cornstarch, peppermint, yellow dock, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, cup of white vinegar, 1 cup baking powder, 2 cups of finely ground oatmeal or normal oatmeal can be placed in a stocking and hung around the tap, let the hot water run over it so it can infuse the bath water.

* You can apply one of the following on your skin...

Aloe Vera, cod liver oil, fresh lemon juice, vitamin E oil, wheat germ oil, Witch hazel, fresh stinging nettle oil, Burdock root oil, Vicks vapor rub, coconut oil, Neem oil, St Johns Wort, Calendula Essential Oil.

* One of these can be taken oraly...
(please first consult your doctor if you are on medication before taking these): Burdock, chickweed, Goldenseal, Plantain, Yellow Dock, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc.

* avoid scratching the area as this can lead to worse skin conditions.

Hope this helps.
