Hi !

Thank you for your query.

Dear sir,

Well looking into the history you have give i think that you are suffering from generalised itching . HbA1c - 6.8% is slightly on the higher side but still not very bad control . Since you are already taking levocetrizine that is an antihistaminic but it is still not controlled I advise you to see a dermatologist and get yourself evaluated for this.

You can take fexofanadine 120 mg once a day after consultation with your treating doctor that is quite effective in such situations . Applying lactocalmine lotion will soothe your skin .

Wish you good health.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
