Why Is My Skin So Itchy Even Without Rash?

Q:
Why is my skin so itchy even without rash?

A:
If your skin is itchy but you don’t have rash, then probably it’s because your skin is too dry. Usually, if you skin is dry, it will let you know with an itch. It can be especially bad in the winter and in places where the air is dry. As you get older, it becomes even more common. Here are some common ways to ease the itch of dry skin:

  • Use moisturizer after you bathe while your skin is still damp.
  • Drink lots of fluids to stay hydrated.
  • Use a humidifier.
  • Make your shower quick, and don’t use very hot water.
  • Use mild soaps.
