What causes chronic itching skin?
There are various reasons why you might be dealing with issues such as chronic itching. It could be related to an underlying skin condition, such as eczema or psoriasis. In other cases, chronic itching may result from an allergic reaction or contact dermatitis. It is also possible that your chronic itching is being caused by an internal issue, such as serious concerns like liver disease or kidney failure. If you cannot get relief with over-the-counter treatments, it is vital to see our dermatological team in Plano, Texas, for help.
How is chronic itching treated?
The appropriate treatment for your chronic itching will depend on the underlying cause. If you have eczema, we may prescribe topical corticosteroids or applying moisturizers to your skin. If you have psoriasis, we may recommend light therapy or oral medications. If your chronic itching is the result of an allergic reaction, we will work to identify the allergen and help you avoid it in the future. We may also prescribe antihistamines to provide relief from the symptoms.
