Started 3 4 years back that my some body part like stomach itch and I can’t help to scratch so it left a like dark patch after that.

Now 2days ago my leg and hand start to itch its so frustrating..  no ideas what’s making it itch..

im thinking of seeing dermatologist (specialize in itchy skin/sensitive skin – dk if I really have sensitive skin or not), but I hope it’ll to solve the problem..

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Hi Emily,

Itch can be really frustrating indeed as it can cause loss of sleep and severely impact the quality of life.

There are many causes of itch and common causes include dry skin, eczema, hives and fungal infections. Sometimes, it can due to underlying medical problems like thyroid diseases, weak kidneys etc and further blood tests may be required to determine the underlying cause.

If your itch is persistent, it would be good to see a dermatologist further evaluation and treatment.

Hi Emily, thanks for the question.

There can be multiple causes of your itch, from the fairly commonly seen hives (or urticaria, in medical speak), to eczema and contact dermatitis (ie your skin is allergic to some sort of product you use).

And yes, for cases of bad itch/rashes, a dermatologist is the best doctor for you to see as that is their area of specialty.

You can see some recommendations for dermatologists here.

Cheers
