Have severe itching of skin. No medication till now. What is the remedy for this?

I have recurring "flare ups" of severe itching. It is so bad that it is like I HAVE to scratch. I fight it but it takes all my energy. Once I scrached so badly it was a massive open sore. Scratching only makes it worse and scratching is so painful I cry hysterically. When I have a "flair up" I can't sleep, I hardly function. If I keep fightin, my pelvid muscle spasm repeatedly. It is not in my head and nothing helps. I have scratched until I had a sore the sive ofr credit

Thanks for writing to us.
The severe itching all over the body can be due to dry skin, eczema, liver disorders or dermatitis. This needs a direct examination by a dermatologist to find out the exact cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
