You are having generalised pruritus . There are many causes of generalised pruritus. But in your case, no cause is still found. All investigations are within normal limits as you said. If no reason, then it is idiopathic or psychological origin.. You avoid stress, anxiety and worry. Keep the body moist. No soap. Cotton clothes should be weared. Take good sleep. Apply moderate potency steroid daily at night and good moisturiser after bath... Take hydroxyzine 25 mg daily at night and desloratidine 5 mg in morning for long time... I hope you will improve. .. Ok
