Avoid excessive heat and humidity. Wear loose, soft clothes which do not cause irritation to the skin. Use deep moisturizing lotions and make sure there are no allergens in the ingredients list which may be causing a reaction. Cold compresses and lukewarm or oatmeal baths also help soothe irritated or inflammed skin.

Consultation with a dermatologist will reveal the exact reason for specific cases.
Itchy skin is often a sign of very dry skin. However it can also be a sign of an underlying illness like liver desease, kidney failure, anaemia, thyroid problems, certain cancers, and nerve disorders.
For patients suffering from eczema, avoiding certain foods can help ease itchiness. These foods include gluten, citrus fruits, dairy, eggs, soy, tomatoes and certain types of nuts and spices.
Hydrocortisone creams, antihistamines, moisturizing lotions and herbal supplements effectively stop skin irritation.
