Itching is usually associated with inflammation of the skin (dermatitis) due to external or internal factors. External factors include exposure to contact allergens, such as poison oak or poison ivy, bites, sunburn, fungal infection, and other irritants. Internal factors are malabsorption of nutrients, intestinal parasites such as worms, or toxemia of the blood.
Treatment Plan for Itching
Herbal treatment includes external soothing herbs and herbal preparations. For internal treatment, blood purifiers, lymphatic cleansers and bowel cleansers are helpful.
