Hi,

Itching on the body could be due to thyroid dysfunction and anemia. I would recommend you to take anti-histamine like tablet cetirizine 10 mg twice daily and apply cortisone cream on the affected area twice daily along with frequent and regular application of a moisturizing lotion on the entire blood 2-3 times in a day.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
