As discussed earlier, itchy skin can be the result of fluctuating hormones during menopause
. As estrogen
leaves your body during menopause, it will stop the production of collagen
, a youth hormone that keeps us looking young. Therefore when the production of collagen stops, itchy skin begins. Estrogen also is responsible for maintaining moisture, so dehydration
can occur as a reduction in estrogen production occurs, which can cause extreme itchiness. Unfortunately, itchy skin can become extremely disruptive and the more one itches, the more one scratches. During menopause, many women find itchy skin to be more of an annoyance than a debilitating symptom, but there are many treatment options.
It is advised to see your healthcare provider immediately if your menopausal itching is extremely severe, affects your entire body, has lasted for over a week and doesn’t improve with lifestyle adjustments and/or is accompanied by weight loss
, changes in bowel habits, fever or redness.
it might be allergic problem too.
