Itching all over


#1

Does anyone feel they are itching all over at times? What do you do to control that feeling?


#2

I have the same generalized itching sensation at times. As I’ve gotten older (61 this month) my skin has become very dry, so when the itching starts I try to use lotions, just over-the-counter stuff. Curel seems to work well. And it helps. Benedryl is also useful for itching but it can make you very drowsy.

Use Eucerin Aquaphor. I would use it daily not just when you are itching because it will cut down the itching and you will notice the lesions will reduce in time with daily use. Also try not to wear clothing that is tight in the areas that are itching for example if you legs itch wear low cut socks and apply the healing ointment.
