Why Does My Skin Itch? These Can be the Possibilities.

When it comes to inflamed, irritated, and itchy skin, it can be annoying especially when it seems like no reason. As it turns out, the causes of skin itchiness can be varied. But there are a few common reasons that can be found in most people, and good news is, many can be avoided and easily treated at home.

Dry Skin

Itching is often a sign of dry skin. When the skin's barrier is dehydrated, the skin barrier is malfunctioning. These can cause a reaction, leading to itchiness. In this case, it is highly recommended to use a gentle soap, moisturiser and body oil which will help the skin retain moisture.

Hair Removal

This can be found specifically on your legs, underarms, and bikini area. Shaving with a dull blade over skin is the easiest and quickest way to cause skin irritation and itchiness. It can pull the hair follicle, triggering inflammation. With an accumulation of bacteria or fungus on the blade, it can later cause bumps or pimples. To prevent this, replace the razor and exfoliate regularly to unclog pores and prevent further breakouts.

Sweat

If you are a sports enthusiast, sweat can be one of the reasons your skin is itching. Sweating along with water activity including swimming can sometimes trigger itching which is s reaction called "aquagenic urticaria". In this case, a simple step you can take before visiting dermatologist is making sure you're cleansing skin with mild soap while showering every day to prevent bacteria and chemical buildups.

Sunburn

If you find that itchiness occurs only in the summer time, it can be determined that your skin is experiencing sunburn. When skin is exposed to sunlight, it turns dry and tight, which can lead to itchiness. Easy fix is applying sunscreen daily and preventing the burn as much as possible.
