Brief Answer:
Probably liver issues, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to cholestasis.

It is the reduction of the bile flow due to the liver, bile duct or pancreatic disorder.

The itching is caused by the accumulation of the bile in the skin.

I recommend to do some examinations:

Liver enzyme blood level

Total bilirubin level

An ultrasound

Meanwhile, I recommend to use Levocetirizine 10 mg to relieve the itching.

I also suggest to soak itchy areas in cool or lukewarm water.

If the diagnosis is confirmed prescription medications such as Ursodiol may be used.

This medication lower through level of bile in the blood.

I also suggest to drink liquids and eat a healthy diet.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
