Even dryness of the skin can sometimes present with persistent itching. Other possibilities are scabies
, fungal diseases and allergic conditions.
Probably you could be allergic to latex gloves, detergents,etc, in which case just avoid those and you will be fine. In the meantime, try an over the counter anti- histamine
drug. If the itching comes down, it might be due to an allergy
If it does not get better, please visit a dermatologist
for diagnosis and treatment. If the lesions are in the grooves in between fingers and under the breast, scabies might be a possibility.
