My legs and arms itch. I have tried over-the-counter anti-itch cream but no help I?

Any help would be great.My legs and arms itch. I have tried over-the-counter anti-itch cream but no help I?
Take a scrub bath with antiseptic solution, if it doesnt help take some anti-histaminic like Pseudoehedrine, if still doesnt help consult ur physician for any allergy or disease process.My legs and arms itch. I have tried over-the-counter anti-itch cream but no help I?
Skin mites that burrow into the skin cause tiny points of intense itching. They live on your blood and leave their waste right there to increase the irritation. If you suspect that may be the cause, experiment by saturating a skin area with welts with ACV (apple cider vinegar). Try this for perhaps 30 minutes at a time using a saturated cloth or emersion if possible. Try it for several days and judge the results for yourself. It may take a little time to get all the mites and eggs. At first, experiment with a small area to be sure there is no serious reaction to ACV. Organic ACV is available from health-food stores and may contain less chemicals that could also cause irritation - while you are experimenting. Depending on the severity of your condition, always consider seeking medical advice.
See a skin specialist if oatmeal, moisturizing, or hydrocortisone products don't work. Also, creams containing clotrimazole, such as Lotrimin, found in a drugstore's foot care section, remedies variations of skin fungus found more commonly in areas with older homes. This must be used in the morning and before bed after cleansing the affected area for a solid two weeks in order to ensure elimination of the condition.
Are you stressed out about anything? If so, that could be the cause. Try some relaxation techniques to see if they help. I get itchy when I am stressed and then i have to do that to de-stress and the itching goes away almost instantly. Hope that helps.
you itch more than likely because your skin is dry. Try taking a bath with an oatmeal supplement (Aveeno has some good products), and then lathering on some moisturous lotion. Reapply it at night before you go to bed. Another product I've found that works for me is called ';Hydrocortisone'; cream. It's not greasy like regular cortisone creams, but works to moisturize your skin AND temporarily relieve itching.
Some essential oils may help your itch. Bergamot, Chamomile, Cedarwood, Jasmine, Lemon and Peppermint.

When using essential oils you would want to mix it with a carrier oil. In your case an organic almond oil which is great for all skin types. Or an organic hemp seed oil, which is an anti-inflammatory. If your not sure how to mix oils, there are many helpful aromatherapy web sites that will help.
It could be something you're wearing, like wool
Ask you Dr about eledil. a topical anti itch medicine that gives relief from psoriasis.
